Space Marine Flyer... Storm Talon and more to be Revealed


It looks like a new space marine flyer might just be given a sneak preview tonight, or today depending on where you are at.

The guys over at Beasts of War have something, or at least are talking like they do. They are doing a show tonight that will apparently reveal the new Space Marine Stormtalon, plus a new Biltza-Bommer, Dakkajet and Burna-Bommer.  Also of course they are saying the new Necron Doom and Night Scythes are going to be revealed. I am going to go out on on a limb and say that this is our June 2nd release that Harry had mentioned earlier.

The Ork model looks like it might be one box, and three different versions. I guess we will have more later in the day.

That’s right guys… Tonight’s show is all about the new… wait for it… Space Marine Stormtalon… the Necron Doom & Night Scythes… plus the new Ork Biltza-Bommer, Dakkajet and Burna-Bommer! and we expect these bad boys to hit the shelves, perhaps around June 2nd?

We’ll have a “look” at them in more detail and discuss some of the special rules you might expect for such awesome hardware!

Who would you want to be a Fighter Ace that shoots down enemy skimmers?

What if one could shrug off Melta weapons?

Would you want a flier that turns up and strafes across enemy lines?

We’ll discuss all this and more tonight!

  2. A "look" at them, eh? Why the quotation marks, BoW?

    1. Because they don't have images of the models, IMHO, so it's more of a "talk" about them, rather than a literal "look".

    2. yeah, that wording makes me think we wont have anything exciting to talk about in the morning.

    3. I dunno, BoW seem to have a pretty good channel into GW, in the past theyve gotten good pics of the Necron stuff before anyone else had even mentioned it.

    4. Because some how they are getting White Dwarf at least a week before the rest of the world outside of GW itself and their Necron second wave pictures were from a English copy at that.

      Personal opinion? Probably a sanctioned leak from GW itself?

      It certainly appears to be a evolution of the one week advance notice. Now exactly 2 weeks beforehand you get teasing pictures unofficially. It really has been this clock work if I recall correctly.

    5. I agree with Mar, BoW 'leaks' usually feel sanctioned to me.

  3. I think this is really a trick, and they will show the new line of Squats I've been hearing about. Squats are gpong to be so awesome that they are supposed to be BOTH factions in the 6th edition starter set.

    1. If squats do get released with the Tau next spring, and I do not see a fully painted army of them from you..........

      If they are simply called the Demiurg, a name difference does not get you off the hook.

    2. You best believe if the "Demiurg" come out with Tau, I will build an army around them, and make the entire army squats, haha. I'll even find a way to replace the HQ's and Crisis Suits with Squats, haha. I would do it now, but something about $300 a squad on ebay hurts my brain.

    3. You could always get forgefathers from Mantic :D

    4. I thought about that last night while trolling about at my FLGS. It would only really require some simple weapon swaps, but I believe it would piss off GW more to make a squats army out of their stuff, since they're so opposed to them.

    5. There's also the Grymn Walker that is going out soon from Hassle Free Minatures.

    6. You wouldn't be the only one making a Squat army. I still have most of my old Squat force from RT/2nd Ed that I just can't seem to find the will to sell off. Would love it if I could use it all again (And not as Guard.).

    7. ...and somewhere a clock resets.

    8. ...and somewhere someone gets a sleep in...

  4. "shoots down enemy skimmers"
    Well so much for my Tau not being shelved just yet.

  5. I think I know where my pre-Chaos money will be going.

  6. BoW has come out with bullshit to boost their pageviews before, so lets not get too excited all at once ;)

    1. But then, as far as I remember they also got the Necron 2nd wave rumours right...

      Though, that was also somewhat closer to the release.

      Delete
    2. Also Necrons first wave

      Delete
    3. Yeah, it's amazing how accurate their rumors can be when they have early copies of WD in hand.

  7. Hmm... Why the sudden interest in Orks, Games Workshop? Doesn't make much sense to me...
    On a side note, I really hope the rules are balanced and not like "Ha, look it deespstrikes, and now I've just wiped out half your army with its weapons, and did I mention it's immune to melta?". Although to be honest, it can't be much worse than the Stormraven (BTW, what's up with that name? Stormtalon, stormeagle, Stormraven, Thunderhawk...)

    1. Because their customers play Orks and every Ork player would give their firstborn for a more reliable shooting phase.

  8. The name could be a remnant of their thunder warrior heritage..... That or "pew pew pew lightning names sound cool"- some GW employe

  9. How do you actually view this BoW broadcast?

    Excuse me if that questions sounds a little retarded!

  10. "I'll believe it when I see it" is a good motto to live by.

    It's great to see Marines and Orks getting flyers, but what about the Dark Eldar Voidraven Bomber and Tyranid Harpie? Necrons are getting theirs!

    In fact, where's the Ork Deff Koptaz?

  13. I'll be honest, I personally dislike the whole flyer nonsense. The rules and the medium is just not meant for this kind of thing, I feel.
    Also, a lot of this talk by the BoW guys seems just like wishlisting or stating the obvious. Outside of the Storm Talon, which I am kinda on the fence about, there wasn't any actual new info. Doomscythe scetch looks like the art from the codex and the Bommer looks about the same as the Forgeworld one. Neither of which are particularly surprising.
    Sorry if I am sort of negative here, but when they talked about "making the White Dwarf relevant again", I just lost it.

    1. What about making a hobby magazine relevant to the hobby its supposed to support enraged you?
