    New Stormraven model?

    So I tried to get to the 40k FAQ site and this is what I got instead:

    http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/co...e=true&start=2

    Could it be true? Or is it just a killer conversion?

    EDIT:

    Since they took it down, here is what it said:

    http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/k...Stormraven.jpg

    Over the next few pages, we will be taking a look at how to paint the Blood Angels Stormraven Gunship, including how to weather the vehicle and paint the interior detail. A great addition and centrepiece model for any Blood Angels army, this will be an invaluable guide to help you get the most from this fantastic kit.

    Death from Above
    The Stormraven Gunship is an incredibly versatile craft, able to fulfill the roll of orbital dropship, armoured transport and strike aircraft in a way that few, or indeed any, ships could hope to match. The Stormraven ensures that the Blood Angels remain undisputed masters of the skies, as dominant in the air as their troops are on the ground. Smaller and nimbler than the more cumbersome Thunderhawk Gunships, the Stormraven's compact hull and vectored thrusters enable it to operate at maximum efficiency in all but the densest terrain. A Stormraven can often be seen hurtling straight into the heart of the enemy forces, unleashing its considerable arsenal in a terrifying display of firepower, before disgorging a squad, Dreadnought, or even both, into the thick of the fighting.

    On the tabletop
    With its potent firepower, speed and transport capacity, the uses of a Stormraven on the battlefield are myriad, but its role of choice is as an unparalleled assault vehicle. With a huge variety of weapon options, and no less than four tank-busting Bloodstrike Missiles, both enemy infantry and vehicles alike fear drawing the attention of its guns. A transport capacity of 12 combined with the ability to safely carry a Dreadnought to battle as well certainly proves the Stormraven to be a transport vehicle of the very finest quality. This unique combination of speed, firepower and transport capacity means that a Stormraven can support any tactical preference, so there is always a place for it in any Blood Angels army.

    Nick: A Stormraven will be the focal point of your army, so it's well worth giving it a lot of attention when painting it. These techniques can effectively be applied to any other vehicles in your Blood Angels army too, so keep this in mind and you will have a great looking fleet of vehicles in no time. I painted this Stormraven to match the battleforce that I painted for the Blood Angels army workshop in February 2011's White Dwarf; it's part of the 3rd Company, in keeping with the rest of the models. As a personal touch, I've weathered the model to appear heavily battle worn, but if you wish to keep your vehicle in pristine condition, skip page 6 and you'll have an immaculate vehicle, fresh as if at the beginning of a campaign.

    Accompanying text.

    (Thanks to Brother Constentine and Fobster and all the others who saved the pics and the text before they took it down)

    Does look to be the real deal and that the page is posted in error (note the article refers to February 2011's White Dwarf in the past tense).

    Crikey, good find.

    Looks unique enough parts-wise to be a legit new model. Others will correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't look much like it's been kitbashed to me.

    Interesting shape...

    Interesting. I might be totally wrong, but that looks like a genuine new model to me. It's obviously a misplaced page even aside from that picture, lending it further credence. Nice one, web team

    Not too sold on it based on that image though: the weight feels uneven, like a bulky front end chopped off a Thunderhawk with small bits added on the back end.

    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    I could see GW putting rules and points in WD to use it in other Marine armies.

    not too sure its a balls up. Why draft up a page for a tutorial for sometime after February next year. Might just GW way of leaking a bit of info.

    Nice catch by the way Tomalock.
