Just some quick pics of my first converted venom. The first pic is of the whole model.
I started with a vyper and cut of the top of the canopy to make it look more open, and added a Dark Eldar head. For the back section I used a raider gang plank and 2 raider keel blades. I was going to use plasticard for the back section but when this was suggested to me I thought this was much easier and in my view looks a lot better.
I then added a reaver jet bike canopy to the front, and jetbike tail fins to the vyper wings, which I think carries on the Dark Eldar feel.
I added raider spikes to the front of the vehicle, and added splinter cannons (shown in the second pic) converted from raider disintegrators and splinter rifles.
Apart from the reaver jet bike bits all the raider bits would be spare from any raiders you'll probably be building for your army. As I've already got 6 old raiders I had to ask friends who were starting Dark Eldar and use eBay. I definitely recommend to anybody starting Dark Eldar to keep all the spare parts they get from making the kits because they are excellent for conversions.
The final pic is the venom from a different angel.
Let me know what you think. One venom down, at least 2 (if not 3) more to go...but not tonight.
