    Storm raven pics already out there.

    Apparently the storm raven has appeared in lots of art for years (GW using old art for inspiration?)

    Apprently its painted on the stained glass windows of an old piece of mentor legion artwork with a guy putting on his armour (im going to look for it now!) This also fits with the (old) fluff of the mentors getting all the new toys first...

    Also it was seen in the old Epic/Space marine rule book art work.

    Apparently its supposed to look like an "osprey"? whatever they are with big vectored fan engines on the wings.

    This makes it sound a lot different to the designs we have seen so far...

    You've piqued my curiosity by saying osprey.
    I don't suppose you've got a link, a source or pictures to back this up?

    Ah no, I know what an osprey is. I meant where did the information come from/if you add any pictures to back it up.

    Where did you hear the rumor from? I get the feeling this is a Red/black shirt making stuff up.

    You're talking about a storm bird, which is a heresy era transport much larger than a thunderhawk. You have your weather avians mixed.

    I agre. IMO the super combos of 40K are not so super that they give a auto-win.

    I was "covertly" listening to the the Staff talking with each other, (manager and a couple of others) i didnt think they realised i was trying to earwig. Would they just "make things up?"

    Probably somebody talking about another, similar thread here and/or on other websites. Try looking in the Imperial project forum here for it, and don't be surprised if this thread gets locked in the near future.

    EDIT: found it. Look halfway down page here for details:

    Awesome how the intarwebz spawns its own rumors.

    After: http://www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/imag...hed%20(16).JPG

    Somebody else did one in dark blue and gray I think. Multiple versions may very well have led the gullible to think it is something new if they don't know the source. This is obviously not the model that it on its way. The Storm Raven carries much less, and so is much smaller.
