40K-BSG Mashup: Viper Mk.1 White Scars Speeder!

viper-horz

When even a GW store is showing off a Battlestar Galactica-40K conversion you know it’s FRAKKING AWESOME!

What happens when you combine one of these

SM-Landspeeder1

With one of these?

“All rights to this thing of beauty not owned by Games Workshop, but when a customer (Rhyan) brings a Space Marine pilot and his hand crafted uh… ‘speeder’, you CERTAINLY take pictures. He even comes out of the cockpit that opens up. Brilliant plasticard work.”

I like that the pilot comes out.  White Scars – of course it had to be the White Scars…

Give it up for the cunning modeler “Rhyan” – well done!  It looks like this exact model was the inspiration for this piece of Space Wolf-BSG mashup awesomeness.

    I was about to ask if you could use it in place of a Xiphon but a Stormtalon is needed to make the kitbash.
    However it does look fifty times better than the silly potato box.

    Sorry, it still looks like a viper. Might as well call it baby xiphon

    I don’t want to EVER hear GW whine about copyright infringement again. Ever.

      Ok, I thought it was a product. Can’t seem to delete the original post.

      That is a fan creation mashed out of a GW speeder. Did you even read what was written about it, chuckles.

      I’m glad you can’t delete this comment, haha.

    sweet! And this is a really, really nice piece of hard work mixed with great idea.
