This came to my mind

Well Primarchs are nowhere near the power of the Emperor they are merely fragments of his own DNA,
Well some Eldar or was it Daemon characters have 9s or 10s in their stats?
Bloodthirster is BS/WS 10. Otherwise none come to mind outside of Ld.

@Stormxlr , they were in no way a prototype Thunderhawk. In all the books the characters see THs as ugly and boxy compared to stormbirds, which were supposedly sleek and swept wing machines. The TH was only supposed to be a temporary stop gap until more SBs could be shipped to the Legions, as the rapid expansion of the Great Crusade meant there weren't enough to go around.

This model is just an up sized TH, and strikes me as a lazy design.

It's also a prototype. There may be some changes for the final version.

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?

In regards to his stats; unlikely. It took a Chaos Empowered Horus to really threaten him, but it was still Horus who saved his life when he was being throttled by the Gigantic Orc. That stormbird ruleset is ~6th edition Apocalypse rules, but fan made.

Well actually the one you are talking about is Gharkull Blackfang and thats not him he was on the planet of Gyros-Thravian.
The ork that choked the Emperor was "on the Ork-infested planet of Gorro, Horus repaid the debt by hacking the arm from a huge, frenzied Greenskin warlord as it struggled to choke the Emperor's life out of him." From Luna Wolves Index Astartes. For all we know it could have been a test for Horus, Emperor was busy killing other stuff, sneak attack, or combination of anything else.

Nope, I'm talking about the Warlord of Gorro.

And pardon me if I completely disregard that bit of completely made up stuff about it being a test. There's nothing to indicate that.

so the Imperium almost didn't happen because an Ork nearly choked the Emperor to death? That's hilarious!

No, at that point the Imperium was already started and the ball was rolling, we almost didn't have a Heresy though.

Well, cut down in one way or another by a lowly greenskin. Perhaps not so lowly then, eh?
