With the introduction of fliers and allies to 40k I thought it was about time to finish my Hydra conversion so I sat down and painted it up. I've left the turret removable so that it can still function as a chimera when required. After playesting some games with artillery-like units I think I've decided that heavy bolters are way better now in contrast to the heavy flamer. Not being able to snap fire it doesn't help. Sadly I glued these on!
The kit for the hydra is just a simple repositioning of an aegist defence line and some work on the turret. Other than that super easy! This guy will be shooting down fliers in no time.
