Stormraven vs. Storm Eagle size difference
Posted 29 September 2012 - 09:26 PM
Question is, how does it compare to the Stormraven in overall size. I know it's based on the same chassis/model, so is it viable/legal to proxy in a game?
If anyone could tell me the length of the Stormraven that would probably help as well, I can't seem to find a solid number on the length for either ship.

I've read in 1 place that the Eagle is 1.5" longer than the stormraven. I just can't verify it anywhere. Thanks for the number on the stormraven, though. I contacted a guy that's building an eagle, so hopefully I'll get a number on that eventually.

Not even close : Stormraven from GW ($66) + Chapterhouse kit ($20) = ~$90 w/shipping
The storm raven's chassis is about 5" long, the storm eagle is longer than that, Look at Chapter house, because they made an extension to make the stormraven longer, but after you buy that, you could be close to the price of the storm eagle.
Storm Eagle from Forge World (£90) = ~$150 w/shipping
I've not had any problems with Chapterhouse kit quality. I haven't bought the SR extension kit yet, but have purchased several Iconoclast kits (MkIIb sponsons & Proteus Heavy Bolter hull piece).

Meh, $42 or $55...
The Storm raven's actually 82.50 now and plus the the 20.50 conversion kit is 103 total, and the current exchange rate is 1.61 USD to 1 GBP so the Storm eagle costs about 145 so a 42 dollar difference before shipping
I still pay ~$50 for a Stormraven kit from EBay, so it's a $95 savings for me.
