Voidraven Rumors
Lets take a look at the latest rumors regarding the Voidraven.

Please remember that these are rumors. So yes, it can get quite expensive depending upon which missiles and options you choose. Not quite sure if these are all the options, but this gives us a good idea where the Voidraven will start.

Seems there's some confusion regarding the points cost of the Voidraven.
It's 160 points base, including 2 void lances and void mine (1 use)
Then the options it can take are the following points 40/50/60
4 shatterfield missiles
2 shatterfield and 2 implosion missiles
4 implosion missiles

Replace void lances with dark scythes - free
take Night shields - 15pts
for special rules it comes with night vision and supersonic, and yes it is
just 10/10/10 3HP

  1. Stunning flying garbage, only serves to gather dust on the shelves

    1. don't be so negative, we don't even know what dark scythes do yet.

    2. I remember when people said the held take was bad....

    3. Someone is being negative.

      Saw a really well done conversion by someone that looks rather similar to this kit. Significantly more expensive than this kit though, and depends on size. Is this flyer really that much bigger than the razor wing?

    4. People said that about the Riptides, Heldrakes, and Flyrants too.

    5. Dust.... something you can collect!
      For Free!!!!

      My Nephelin looks so nice with that 2 year dust layer.

    6. I didn't bother buying a neph because I could see how bad it was and was certainly not going to reward GW's bad rules writing by buying one.

      Delete
    7. Yeah well... I only got the one, but had planed on buying more at first. Price and rules were really a turn off.

      If we only knew what models will stay playable in the long run. After new eeditions & dexes?

    8. it is a shame too, because i think the nephilim is the best looking flyer they have produced. too bad its also got the worst rules of all flyers.....

  3. Those dark scythes could be nasty if they're the same as wraith guard d scythes.

  4. 60 points for 4 implosion missiles is a bargain, they were 30 each before, so full kitted it's actually cheaper than it used to be!

    ReplyDelete
  5. so it's price went up... and it's armour went down... wat.

    1. It also got its void mine changed from small blast to large blast. So there's that upgrade. And the implosion missiles are now significantly cheaper (although may have a different effect). And it can switch out its weapons to these D-scythes. I'd wait until the codex pictures are out to make judgements.

    2. I also think night shields gives +1 cover now, so it's got a 3+ jink.

      Delete
    3. You're right. It should be 35 points and 14/14/14. We were robbed!

      Delete
    4. @Greg. Firstly I want to say I called the stealth upgrade to DE vehicles coming months ago ;-) Joking aside, I don't know that I would pay 15 points (rumored cost) to put it on the voidraven. Sure it will give you a 3+ cover instead of 4. But I don't really want to jink all that much on a flyer that gives up all its shooting ability by jinking. I'd rather either not jink or just rely on the 4+. It's not like Raiders where I'll definitely be taking it so I can Jink every turn and not care.

  6. Has anyone got any info about the invul for Wyches perhaps working vs overwatch ?

    1. I wish. Even that small adjustment would make them well worth it, IMO.

      Delete
    2. There is this, from the white dwarf battlereport

      "and her remaining Wyches, who danced through a blazing salvo of overwatch fire to plunge headfirst into the fray"

      Could hope!

      Delete
    3. not bad ! well spotted lasse!

      In case it really works, that could mean the comeback of wyches for me. On the other hand, I'm scared that the WD writer just used a fancy wording to say that the overwatch fire missed ...

      Delete
    4. Yeah really just sounds like a fancy way of saying no 6s were rolled

      Delete
  7. Now that sounds more like it! A flying land raider made out of papier-mâché just didn't make any sense. I mean, its not like its Imperial Armour Eldar flyers we've going for here. Thanks for the good news :)

  8. I cannot believe the Dark Eldar datacards are already sold out in US

  9. It's a beautiful model, I'll wait to judge it's usefulness, but 160 base is a bit expensive for 10/10/10

    1. 20pts less than Nephelin. And thats was AV 11 and Airsupiriorfail fighter.

    2. i won't buy for rules only aesthetics. more dust the better. jokes. if i buy one it'll be to paint and/or convert

  10. Just ordered my Dracon edition. Feels good :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. OMG!!!!
    Only 3,-€ more than a Landraider.

    And it can kill 10 guardsmen once a game for the pointcost of 30+ guardsmen. Amazing!!!!

    Best of all, is that they left a empty space on the sprue of the acrylic parts. Imagine they used that for a spare?

    This was the big DE releas.
    Well that was quit fast.

    At least DE can deal with Guard now. Unless Its more than 10 men. ;)

  12. 10/10/10.....so its eldar..... frankly there should be more flyers with lighter armour

    1. yes to all bar Imperial bricks. or ork bricks. fluffy [background for these two factions are they have Primitive tech]

      Delete
    2. Imperial flyers: armor 12/11 (occasionally 10 on rear)
      Chaos: 12/12/10
      everyone else: max 11

      Oh, and the Imperium's have hover mode too so can stop to not overshoot their target.

    Screenshot of new succubus. There's also a shot of the army builder and there's no Lord of War slot and no sign of Vect. Looks more and more like the Germans have the dex.

  14. Razorwing Jetfighter = 69 AUD
    Voidraven Bomber = 115 AUD

    It doesn't look THAT much bigger than the Razorwing. I... don't understand.

    1. ^ it is new. people have mentioned before new kits are more expensive. size is irrelevant. look at stompa and morkanought, not much difference really there. similar price inconsistencies [stompa should be $200 or morka shouldn't be over $100]

      Delete
    2. Basically, the Razorwing is a bargain. Expect the price to be 'adjusted' at some point.

      Delete
  15. Stunning plane looks like a cross between an Avro Vulcan and a Grumman X29.

    Looks good enough to buy on looks alone, but it would be nice if it is remotely playable.
