The Voidraven Bomber was rumored to have had some modelling issues, so was pulled from its release schedule of late summer or early fall. This is the big boy of the Dark Eldar flyers and no doubt we would all like to see its release. It was so long ago we heard Jess say that everyone in the design studio was running around with these models making swooshing noises.

The rumor has it that it will be released this coming February, and that concept sketches have been seen. I wish we had a photo of these sketches.

The pic is from Dark Future Games by old school terminator. Nice Conversion.


Please remember that this is a rumor, and please take with salt.

I've heard from several sources now that the Void Raven is pencilled in for a February 2012 release. As always take with a grain of salt and don't get your hopes up.

MajorWesJansen, and no doubt others, certainly saw the concept sketches at Games Day Chicago, there were witnesses.

  1. That looks heavily kitbashed from the old and new raider model. In fact, theres not too many pieces I don't recognize...

    1. Yeah, some kind of REAL (!) SM-flyer would be nice !

      ...sorry, this last SM flyer was ugly as a mud fence. I first thought GW was just kidding. It just looks like a dumpster with engines and guns.

      I deny to put that trashbox in my army, or worse... spending my hard earned money for it.

  6. Can confirm that the Void Raven sketchEs were prominently on display for anyone who cared to look at them in Jes' DE sketchbook at GD UK. Unfortunately, he didn't want any photos taken (you can thank the goons at Chapterhouse for that). All I can say is that the sketch was perfect and very reminiscent of an upscaled Razorwing. The fore targeting canopy was particularly nice.

  10. I'm actually looking for broader information on the Voidraven, not in so much as what they're armed with but how many weapons they're armed with and placement of those arms. I myself am making a Voidraven from two Razorwing models, Reaver jetbike parts and misc. parts from a Cronos Parasite Engine and Raider/Ravager parts. I've seen portrayals of the Viodraven having 4 engines with the Cronos Parasite Engine Spirit Vortex mounted in the place of the rudder of the plane. No mention, not even in the rule books was made as to does the expanded wingspan support more missles and where is the void mine pod located and what does it look like and how many of them are there. I'm aware by way of the rules that the Voidraven is a bit larger than it's Razorwing cousin but how much bigger? This game kind of uses scale and measurement as the main factor in calculating battle damage and such and if they put the danged model in the rule book they should have darn well made the model's for every troops type in the Dark Eldar Codex for it before it's release.Otherwise what was the use in putting it in there?

  11. Finally, they came out with the Voidraven Bomber. It's pretty damn hot although I think they could have taken a few idea's as far as the wing design goes from some of the outstanding chop jobs here. This is the GW link straight to it:
