I'd personally prefer it to be longer and narrower, but I don't collect Custodes so it doesn't really matter. Still, it's nice to see a vehicle design that doesn't have fifteen different weapons stuck to it. Forge World are a lot more restrained about that sort of thing.

I mean it doesn't look bad and I can see it fitting into the 30k setting ... I'm just not a fan of 30k Custodes vehicle at all.

I'll have to see this one from more angles before I make a final decision but my initial impression is not positive. It looks like it's missing it's back half.

When in doubt, paint it black. Everything looks better in black.

Think I'll pass on this. Would rather use the money to get those fancy dreadnoughts and terminators.

It’ll grow on me like the Orion did.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

See, I like it, but what bothers me, much as with the Orion, is that it visually does not remind me of custodes at all.

Unless that back compartment is for holding troops, making it a freakin' chariot plane, that's a big swing and a miss for me. The that's two just weird lookin' Custodes fliers now.

I love the Orion, but this new version just does not work for me.
Cutting away the rear section has removed half it's bulk and changed its silhouette to the point this does not feel like a super heavy. At this point how much more mass and bulk does the Ares have compared to something like a fire raptor?

When i heard there was a gunship variant of the Orion coming i thought it would be more like the difference between the Eldar Vampire Raider and Vampire Hunter, rather than cutting half the model off.

Yep needs to be longer like some of the 40k marine aircraft as a well.

The gold and red paint job doesn't really help, making it look "fake".
It really doesn't scream 30K or 40K to me but a better paint job and another angle might really help.
