It's a vehicle GW has just made up, I haven't seen or heard of it before. Well I guess they needed something to make a dual kit with the Hydra with and as they have already done the most logical choice: the Manticore with the Deathstrike (always an odd combo I thought given the way the Manticore was in Epic and in FW) they had to come up with a new one. Looks ok I guess, I'd still build it as Hydra though.

Pretty funky, if these things can be purchased by the squadron, that is a lot of pie plate death incoming!

...I guess the Guard needed another anti-infantry artillery piece? I mean, there were what, at least four before? Griffon, Medusa, Basilisk, Colossus... and there are probably some others, that's just off the top of my head. So yay for redundancy! But, it's a cool model and that's all that really matters, I suppose. The bigger selling point of the kit *should* be the Hydra, but experience shows that the "new" unit a kit makes is inevitably the better option out of the kit. So I'm kind of curious to see what the Wyvern actually does.

I'm going to guess it going it acts like the eldar night spinner. At least thats what the fluff sounds like anyway.

based on the evidence that they have a new anti-infantry tank?, that's one hell of a jump of logic

No one does redundancy better than the Imperium....except Imperial army players who just spam the same thing over and over again.

No guarantee colosses, grithin et al will be in the new dex - after all - the kits were never done by GW...

Correct, the Griffon, Colossus and friends were (I say "were" because the Griffon is the only one left out of that group on the FW site now, the others seem to have vanished) FW kits that people seemed to ignore as existing (so was the Hydra by-the-way).

I am aware FW have the kits (I own them), but GW never made a kit - perhaps they will now or perhaps they have some new ideas?

Well seeing as FW is a part of GW...I'd say they made the kits.

But yes, they were never in plastic and people who didn't know about FW (or refused to look at it because "zomg, FW is totes op brah!") never saw that they were there.

It is exactly what I would expect to see from a new "guard" dex. I like the look of it and I makes sense that if would be a thing.

Now we just need Guardsmen riding atop each other's shoulders so people forget about how much everyone hated on the Centurions.

The one on the bottom could even be banging coconut shells together!
