Flyer Pics released

looks like the stormpigeon is Space marines only and likely FA (note the Assault squad insigna on the top) Personally, I'd rather bulk up a LS Typhoon. It looks like a StormRaven turret on steroids. Is it just me or could you likely convert most of this with a Ravenwing sprue???

The Ork Bomma is sweet, and the Necron Vehicles are gorgeous.

the gunship is just BEGGING to be orkified, or turned into some giant mech thing.

Yeah.. I think the consensus is pretty correct across the board.. Ork and necron look good..space marines bad.

As much as I do ike the Ork flyers.. they still sort of feel just a bit odd.. they look like regular ol' fighter planes.. which is fine and all byut you'd think maybe there be a bit of 40k tech.. ? Shrugs.. just me.

Id be fine with the the storm talon if was just stretched out a bit.. and not so clunky. Justy seems a bit odd.. and a bit strangely phallic with the big cannon jutting out between its landing gear legs?

It has potential, but needs some converting to make it look better. Extend out the engines a bit on some booms or something, and remove the ridiculously large chin turret, and streamline the whole thing. Take your hand and cover up the huge turret, and you find it looks alot better.

Ben, you kinda sound like a guy trying to talk himself into taking home the last girl at the bar:) "If she's in the right light and you cover the left half of her face..." j/k dude.

It looks like this http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/84/skyhawk/ beefed up.

My issues are A) it doesn't look like it can possibly fly, it's worse than the Storm Raven.

B) Is it really neccessary? Doesnt the LS Tempest fill the same role? (AV 11, Skimmer, Fast, AssCan and Typhoons)?

it's definitely not a pretty thing at all. and i bought a storm raven.
i'll be doing moderate conversion work to this thing if/when i buy one/a pair, depending on the point costs.

your right on how they should've just taken the tempest's design and remodeled the exterior slightly to accommodate the new weapon choices this thing has beau. though iirc, its not a typhoon the tempest comes with; its just a TL tactical marine's missile launcher.

Same idea.

Take a LS. Enclose the cockpit (plasticard, what have you) beef up the armor if need be.

Use the T/L AssCan fromthe ravenwing sprue. Mag the attachment point for the typhoon launchers.

Magnetize predator weapons and the typhoon launcher. Abracadabra! *poof* Stormpigeon for $30 and bitz AND you can use it as a tempest or a LS.

And it'll look way better than that THING.

re flyers

Post  Commander James of the Ul on Thu May 24, 2012 7:08 pm

Yup I'm with Scott and Dom. They look fine. The wife let me use her computer and I took the pic's in her pic thingy program. Then changed the Ultra Marine blue to a Blood Raven Redish colour and a pale tan colour on the thrusters. My opinion it looks pretty sweet. Probably going to pick up at least two of these puppies. Oh and Ben if you lower your standards you increase your odds... lol

Looks kinda like an apache.

meh. all the space marine vehicles look like dumb metal boxes, long as the rules for it are somewhat useful, I'd be all over a CSM version Smile
