PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MODEL WAS CREATED AT THE OLD 1/5 FORGE WORLD SCALE FOR EPIC 6mm, THEREFORE I HAVE MOVED IT TO THE CONVENT RANGE AS BEING MORE SUITED TO THE SCALE OF THE CONVENT MINIATURES, THIS MODEL WILL LOOK SMALL NEXT TO THE 1/4 SCALE MINIATURES PRODUCED FOR USE WITH THE NEW LEGIONS IMPERIALIS GAME FROM GW.
The Novan’s make use of many types of aircraft including fighters, bombers, shuttles, heavy landers and dropships, the Eagle is a light class dropship capable of fighting its way past an orbital blockade to deliver a platoon of infantry to a planetary surface under combat conditions. Heavily armed and armoured for its size this aerospace craft is also a supremely powerful air asset in its own right. The main dorsal turret can be fitted with a variety of different weapon systems, including an accurate and hard-hitting heavy laser cannon, allowing it to engage heavily fortified orbital and surface positions, as well as enabling ground-support “pylon runs” to strike hardened surface targets. Secondary weapons include supplemental wing-mounted laser cannon and air to ground missile clusters. Close in defence and landing zone suppression is provided by automated heavy machine gun turrets. Even a single Eagle dropship is likely to prove to be an incalculably valuable asset to any battle group.
The aircraft dimensions are: 28.3 metres long with a wingspan of 27.6 metres.
