Fear the Voidraven Bomber! Revealed



That's right, the Dark Eldar Voidraven is on the cover of the next White Dwarf. In fact "Fear the Voidraven Bomber" is the title. I was not expecting to get information on this one until the weekend, but whoa, very cool. Looks like my dark eldar are going to be getting a pair of these, simply on principal. Lets take a look at it from someone that has seen pictures of it!


Please remember that although these are indeed coming, they are still considered rumors until we see official information.

Next weeks white dwarf #35 shows the DE Void Raven.
Here is what the new cover says.

Watch the Skies!
Dark Eldar Flyer Incoming!
Fear the Voidraven Bomber
Battlefields Darken in the Shadow of Sickle-Shaped Wings

Its has most of the aesthetics of the Razorwing Fighter, but larger with 4 Engines, 3 tail fins, and two Void Lances that protruding from the wings. In the main body, the pilot sits on a set of small bat-like wings with a long nose along the front. Its a gorgeous model, and if you like the razorwing fighter, the Voidraven looks very similar, just bigger and longer. Where the razorwing nose is open, there is a canopy for a nose pilot in the voidraven.

    2. Doesn't necessarily mean no codex though, you have to check the "pre order" section of the WD, a few pages in.

      Likewise, last weeks cover didn't mention everything that went up for pre-order; just the wracks/haemonculus center point. The novels from the black library etc weren't touched on.

      I have a hard time believing they'd release the Void Raven on its own, with no other model release or codex release; that would mean the 3rd week (for release Oct 11) would include the codex and, if rumors hold true, another 2-3 kits including Vect. I don't trust it.

    3. I don't think we've had rumours for anything other than vect and the voidraven. I'd be surprised if we see any other new kits.

    4. I think you've all misunderstood, the longer you wait for the codex, the more releases you get. So if you want new Vect/grotesques/inucbi you need to hope that it isn't the codex next week.

    5. There is no Succubus on the site any more, so that could point to a new sculpt there.

    6. I get that the longer we wait the more models we get, but frankly, I just want to see the rules! haha I'm impatient

    7. i keep saying this, and its probably only gonna make it hurt that much more when it doesnt happen, but i REALLY want a new grotesque kit.

      but the fact its been featured in the photoshoot with the new haemonculus and wracks makes me almost certain we wont be getting one.

    8. I'm expecting void raven and Succubus this week followed by vect on Dias + Castigators + Codex the week after. But that's just a hunch

    9. "" the longer you wait for the codex, the more releases you get""

      Ahh! That explains GKs!
      And also SOB or does it?
      Yeah i guess this means they just have to wait more right?
      Wow Squats will get a insane ammount of releases, if they ever!

      Delete
    10. Seb that isn't what they meant and you know that -.-

      The longer it takes the codex to release during that armies release period the more stuff we get. C'mon, you're smarter than that

      Delete
    11. where the hell do you suspect they will bring out a castigador kit ... is like asking thunderhawk on a SM release ... it will neverr happen ...

  3. Fear is for the weak. Time to go hunting. Still it looks nice.

  4. Thank god it's my birthday in two weeks

  5. I'm glad that the codex didn't drop in this WD. That means more weeks and more releases for DE! The justice they deserve.

  6. I like that it finally gets a model and its not bad that they stick to the current aesthetics of the DE range, but that said, its not as exciting as a "new" sculpt like a possible vect.

    1. It is a new sculpt. It's never existed before and hasn't been for sale.

      Delete
    2. i'm sure Sethdr mean't something else. along the lines of a different hull design/shape. if this is the case it seems it went over your head. if not then you are right.

  7. The how to paint a dark eldar wrack video is up, and shows a snippet of what I assume is the new cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Azdu4lipA04

    1. O_O Holy S***!!!! If that's the cover, I might just wet myself.

    2. Nice catch. Must be the cover. Beautiful.

  8. pre-orders are up for DE in the UK

  9. The Voidraven is nothing to be feared of. If they don't give him Ignores Cover or at least ignores Jink like the Dark Reapers he will be just a decoration, similar to Tantalus, with no significant battlefield role.

    1. Said the guy who sucked at 40k.

      It has plenty of battlefield use for people who can read and think.

      Delete
    2. I've often run my razorwing as a void raven.

      Maybe it's just my bad luck but when it does show up it usually just strips one hull point off something and gets shot down.

      I get more use from an extra ravager shooting and adding target saturation from turn one.

      If it gets a decent boost I might buy one.

      Says the guy who cannot comprehend warhammer fantasy.

    4. ^ though that said and out of the way i agree with you. it does have a use. only it's awaiting it's own use [no *updated to new codex* rules as of yet so who really knows one way or another]

    2. It's the tiny floating thing moving across the screen at the end.

    3. Hm. We sure that's a model and not just a bit of art they animated? Hard for my eyes to tell...

    4. I think we all just want to believe in something!

    5. Looks like a stylized raider. As much as I would like to believe that it's Vects Chariot of Pimps, I don't think this is it

    6. Its just modified version of the double page picture of commoragh in the 5ed Dark Eldar book.
