Cyclone Missile Launcher conversion

Post by Bujiga » Mon Mar 12, 2012 1:28 am

Cyclone Missile Launchers are hard to come across and cost around $10 each, so I was wondering if anyone has done any good conversions. Would a Chaos Havoc Launcher work? or is it way to big?

I've seen it done with Havoc Launchers and size wise it looks just fine to me.

I used Typhoon MLs. It's a little small but they get the job done.

Now, if I were to convert new ones I might go with either the Sentinel missile launchers or the Drop Pod ones. The drop pod looks more to balance as they are longer and the sentinel looks nice because of it's size.

EDIT: Here, I seem to have lost my Sentinel MP but here's what I can do for you. From the right to the left the first one is the Havoc, then we have the Drop Pod MP and then the Typhoon.

I used the Hunter Killer Missiles from tanks as mine. Looks different but works fine.

Look after yourself today- you still owe me two flagons from our last arm wrestling match. It would be just like you to get yourself killed to avoid paying your debts.

I just took 2 havok missle launchers from my chaos rhino kits, and glued them to his back, using searchlights as anchoring points :)

From that picture it doesn't look that big compared to the head.

Lol is the head bigger than normal SM heads. I think the only way im going to find out is to get one. Im sure I can use it from something if it is too big.
