Alternative Dwarf Gyrocopters complete

Nearly finished work on my two alternative Gyrocopter models for my WHFB Dwarfs.  Using two Huey Hog gunships from Battlefront.  Was hoping the models would turn up in time for me to take them to Runefang but unfortunately they didn't.  99% completed the painting of them, just a rotor blade to do and the bases (gun still missing from one).  All up very happy with them.  The scale is good and in my opinion they fit in well with rest of my army.  Definitely a very different look.  Did come across one of the newer Gyro's at Runefang last weekend and it turned out to be smaller than the pictures make it look.  Definitely worth buying but I got two Hueys for less the price of one GW Gyro and price wins.

Anyway see what you think...

... rotor blades are magnetised so you can detach them for storage.

I like the idea of saving pennies using alternate models... as you say they seem a decent match for scale... perhaps just dwarfy them up a bit; add some runes, maybe paint some celtic knotwork down the tail? Do you have any spare standard finials you could stick on; anvil and hammer that sort of thing?

Cheers guys - and yep Runes and little bits to make them more Dwarfey are next on the agenda :)
