eldar firestorm turret

Using magnets to attach the turrets of my Falcons to the hull enables me to switch between different Falcon variants simply by swapping the turrets. The Firestorm turret produced by Forge World, like so many of their Eldar kits, is fantastically designed and a beautiful kit to look at. Due to its specialised anti-aircraft role, I only have a single Firestorm turret in my collection.

date: 2008-present (work-in-progress)
components: 1x Firestorm Forge World kit, 1x Forge World Eldar Hornet pilot, neodymium magnets (various sizes), brass rod, Green Stuff
