I have a pair of unbuilt Stormhawks which have long awaited being added to our codex. Upgunning the nose to a Las talon seems a no Brainer but what of the missles pods? Would they bring some effective metal box popping for my assault units to get at the tasty bits inside?

I guess it depends what other AT you have in your army. Bawkse popping is important but I find the AP of missile launchers just a bit too anaemic to be worth their points. I would be tempted to stick with the heavy bolters for added chaff clearance and save yourself the extra 30 points to spend on some more potent anti-tank.

Having said that, if your Stormhawks are your primary source of heavy weapons then the Typhoon Launchers may be necessary, even if they are a bit overpriced IMO.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.
