|Eldar Firehawk as it is now|
We have an airplane based on the falcon kit. This puts him size wise in the slightly undersized plane category. My main issue with the design- howmuch ever I loved it back then- that it looks too clumsy to be a fast fighter. I have in the meantime created my own fighters, which are based on the fireprism turret and I much more see those as an airsupperiority fighter. The Fire hawk just looks heavier...
So I decided to make him the next best option: a bomber. Rulewise we look at Eldar Phoenix Bomber or maybe the dark Eldar Void Raven. Without making a decision I look at the needed changes.
- Both have a crew of two- one pilot and one gunner
- At least the Phoenix is bigger in size an I guess that the Void Raven will be about the same
- The weapon loadout is of course different.
- The are sleeker
I have not settled on a version, but rulewise I like the Phoenix a lot more. It just seems super shooty and super survivable and I think because of this I will stick with him ad for now. This is the scetch on what I think of:
