When I look at Space Marine fliers, all I see are METAL BOXES.
Can I has aerodynamix? Of course, it's all make believe and I don't take it too seriously. I mean, this is a world where RED makes things go faster. But all the same, if they get any more cuboid in shape they'll look like Borg ships. How do these things even pretend to fly?

I used to hate SM aesthetics for everything, but it makes sense with the Imperial line of thinking. They are all about overwhelming brute force in pretty much every circumstance. Ergo, vehicle efficiency is irrelevant; just make it more powerful and punch the air out of your way. This one isn't even all that bad.

I wonder what kind of points (and dollars) these will cost. If it's less than or equal to a Stormraven, just with no transporting and more guns, that'd be cool. If it was any more though, it'll be too much. Is that a triple lascannon on the bottom?

You'd think as much as we lack in anti-air, we would get more of that before, you know, air.

via Atia on B&C:

Rehash of the old supplement with no mention of a game unto itself, but rather big (optional?) changes to 40k.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Ork flier with kustom force field, traktorkanon och två kustom mega-blasters or something? Grot gunner TL big shoota at the back? I wonder what stat will be on those blasters cause if they are as huge as they seem they should use blast markers and won't fire against other fliers. One traktor kanon at BS2 (or 3) doesn't seem that scary for a dogfighter. Even if the blasters can fire against other fliers it is not that much dakka to be something made by an ork.

Good to be green

Oh look, new toys for SM... Again.

At this point they're just using the other codexes as a excuse to bring out new things for SM. Who wants to bet that their flyer is vastly superior to the Ork one?
