eldar hornet squadron

The Eldar Hornet is a great little craft - the design is excellent and the rules make it a competitive and viable alternative to the ageing Vyper (whose model I'm not so keen on). I have a squadron of three - all are magnetised and can equip the same weapons as my Falcons and Wave Serpents.

date: 2013-present (work-in-progress)
components: Forge World Eldar Hornets, neodymium magnets (various sizes), transparent styrene rods, brass rod, Green Stuff, plasticard (various thicknesses), High Elf Prince scenery element, cork

I used a 6mm-thick neodymium magnet to secure the Hornet to the flying base. Converted Forge World Eldar Hornet underside
