Alright Chaps now ive always wondered what the Stormbird looks like, its big, its beefy, its shooty, and quite frankly it makes me giddy like a school girl.

This is clearly an Apocalypse style flyer but its heresy era tech, as far as i know no one uses or has access to anything like it, *coughmarinesmalevolentcough*

and it looks very official... but god where can we get something like that, forget Thunderhawks, this is oldschool.

and i was wondering if anything like this might come out in the fabled "summer of flyers"

The picture is official GW, but the datasheet is not. Nor is the datasheet a very good one - A SH Flyer with Thunderhawk AV, 2 more Structure Points, twice the Transport Capacity, the same special rules, comparable weapons load-out (barring the big gun), and 25% lower points cost? The Large Target rule is interesting, but I thinnk the datasheet as a whole is under-costed.

I love Tau in CC, it's like clubbing baby seals, only tau are neither cute nor fluffy or protected by the Maritime Mammal Act..... so it's perfectly legal and the Sierra Club ASPCA nuts won't come looking for you!

For the regular Guardsman you've got Commissars holding guns to their backs. They're faithful in their own way, sometimes mightily so, but they are regular folks who've led regular lives, with the completely understandable desire to continue living that causes them to duck when they get shot at. Sisters are orphans raised in perpetual Sunday school, fanatical to the point that they look at Repentia and feel a twinge of jealousy that those girls will see the Emperor sooner than they will.

That datasheet is from Tempus Fugitives Horus Heresy Campaign
If your post is unreadably garbled, I will simply ignore it.
Just because it's on the internet doesn't excuse poor grammar, spelling and punctuation.

Koremu is more eloquent than me and I agree wholeheartedly.

Koremu, you are a genius.

Guys like Koremu, Warp Angel, Grey Mage, and others, should write the 6th edition BRB and the next C:SM !

As usual, the answer is going to be 'use a vindicator'...

GW released the stormraven because thunderhawks are too big for regular games. In their Black Library appearances, stormbirds carry one hundred marines. I think you need to invent a bigger game than apocalypse to fit one in. Epic, really.

I don't think Forge World makes Storm Birds. Only Thunderhawks.

It makes sense to me that if the Tactical Marine intercepts the bullet with his face then the Captain really shouldn't lose his Iron Halo. Not unless Captain and Battle Brother were hugging at the time, in which case it's: bullet shorts out shield and then kills Marine. Captain looks on shocked as Marine slides down his body, then sinks to his knees shouting "nooooooooooo" with his hands in the air.

I've been following BlackAdder's scratch-built (better-than-)ThunderHawk... If anyone can make an awe inspiring StormBird, I'd put my money on him...
