Idea for Soriog VTOL

 I found this great toy of a Halo 'Banshee' and thought it ties in very nicely with the style of the Soriog from Khurasan. As yet there are no released vehicles for the Soriog.

I bought three off eBay for not that much and was pleased with the scale of them compared to the figures. Easily big enough to be a troop transport or air support vehicle. The air foils at the back also give great cover for troops disembarking.

 A Soriog landing bay on high alert.
 Soriog are very large compared to humans, each one of these craft can carry seven Soriog into battle, that's one squad in GRUNTZ.

 As the Soriog are heavy influenced by the design of the Elites from Halo, It makes sense that actual Halo toys and models would fit like a glove. Below is a planned Soriog tank coming hopefully later this year.
 I will still buy the future releases for the Soriog that Khurasan have been planning, but even then these models will still fit in nicely with the range. As even the Soriog vehicles are influenced by the Halo game designs.
 I have also ordered some GW flying stands and some magnets from eBay for these ships, It will be nice to detach them when they touch down to unload their teams of angry Soriog.
Recommended for any 15mm sci fi game. Cheap compared to wargames models and great looking.
I will leave the gaps in the side of the flyers open as If they are windows for gunners, may even stick a few Soriog hanging out, now I just need to book some painting time.

Great find Secundus! Those will work great (and not at Forgeworld prices).
