I was thinking about converting up a Tempest when I thought to myself it's a lot of effort just for one gun and as someone who believes one gun is never enough I thought what I need is a flying armoured gun platform Apache style. I had already done a Land Speeder (LS) conversion but it lacked purpose with two side mounted Las Cannon (LC) it had AT ability but lacked ground support other than single heavy bolter and although I lenthened the body to diferentiate it from a normal LS it did not look more heaily armoured and so was suseptable to light arms fire. So I thought armour up the cockpit and stick some guns on it and so far this is what I have.
So we have twin linked underslung LC whith two side mounted Assault Cannon (AC) and I was thinking roof mounted Sentinel missile launcher. This as always is not a conversion for a game piece but a model project that would look appropriate on the table so let the CC begin.

To me it looks overarmed. That is a tremendous amount of firepower in a single vehicle.
But, since this is simply a modeling project and not an actual game piece, I could let that go.
It still looks far too heavy to be the type of vehicle that it is.
Go for it anyway. However, if you are going to keep the underslung las-cannon, you should flip the barrels over; traditionally the muzzle of a las weapon cants backwards from top to bottom, not bottom to top.
