Remember, vehicles have always been on a smaller scale than other models for game play purposes. The original Rhino's size was so it wouldn't take 2 turns to get from the back to the front after disembarking.
And FW has said they want to do Daemon primarchs, so I'd be surprised if we didn't see them. And not putting the Emperor on the table would frankly be a bit of a crime if you're doing the Heresy.
It would be but his stat line would be 10/10/10/10/10/10 with 10 wounds and his armor would be av 16 with 2+/2++ rerollable. Whats the point? He is a freaking God walking on Earth anything less in a stat line and Inquisition will show up at FW door step.
I get the argument for scale purpose but FW Thunderhawk is already very big, why make Stormbird smaller?
I love the version of Stormbird by BulldogUK
Also found this online , no idea where its from though. Anyone can shed the light?
its got certain elements ,but then again the Colonial vyper shares a few elements with other scifi fighters such as the xwing and thunderfighter, that said you could really go to town and add a third engine on top to make a really cool vyper conversion easy enough, i really quite like it, really think they should have pushed this one over to GW and made it into plastic .
I like the stormbird, i never really liked the description given in the heresy books anyway, i prefer this direction.
seems FW have really embraced CAD sculpting by the looks of it too, i bet they have shit loads of products already to go.
Nothing wrong with Resin except price, look at all the amazing resin models FW is putting out, honestly I have more faith in FW than GW. I bet FW has shit loads of CAD sculpts of everything from lowly grunt we will never see to Warlord and Emperor class titans to The Emperor and Chaos Gods themselves.
*EDIT* Also the FW Stormbird looks like a FW Thunderhawk body mod, the nose fuselage look identical to TH. Maybe they took a Thunderhawk and just started making it wider with plasticard? :D
