They say fool me once shame on you, fool me twice…
Still though when one of the longest standing pillars of the rumor-sphere says something about an upcoming “Autumn of Flyers” it’s hard to discount it.
Here’s what ever-steady Harry has to say:
At the risk of getting the [email protected] kicked out of me ….. (after the whole “summer of fliers” thing)
I have heard scraps that suggest there may well be something going on with ‘fliers’.
I have heard some snippets about :
a) A kit for a SM flier called a “Storm Hawk”
b) An Ork fighter kit (might have been a fighter/bomber?)
c) A ‘fliers’ supplement. (…as the first supplement to 6th Edition).
Now you have to remember I don’t know so much about 40K OR follow 40K rumorz.
So …. I don’t know:
a) If you have heard this already?
b) What I am talking about!
When I hear 40K stuff it really doesn’t mean that much to me?
So I tried the google ‘Storm Hawk’ and found this:
(No idea of the original source … I am sure someone hear will know if it was in a GW publication originally)
“The Storm Hawk is a smaller, more agile transport from the same design lineage as the Storm Bird. Used extensively for small operations, as the Heresy progressed much of the STC data to build the Storm Hawk was lost although the Mechanicum have kept copies so that if it were to fall completely out of service a variant could be reintroduced at a later date.”
PLEASE REMEMBER THESE IS JUST RUMORZ
I have based this on the smallest scraps of information, from different places.
It is possible I have been mislead or I have put two and two together and come up with complete bobbins. 🙂
~So we have heard earlier that the Space Marine codex would contain some type of new “gunship” model – that Storm Hawk would seem to fill the bill. Also note you Horus Heresy readers that the StormHawk is said to be a descendant of the Unification War’s StormBird, which was the large aerodynamic predecessor to the lumpen and easily mass produced Thunderhawk. I would expect it to have little to no similarity to the Stormraven. More on the Lounge here – Have at it.
