I know, I am a couple hours late on the clock. I saw the new stuff posted at 7am EST, but could not actually access the pictures until some one from Bolter and Chainsword posted them on the forum for me. So here you go!
First thoughts? Well, I was one of the few people in the world who loved models in the leaked pic of the Storm Raven. I thought it shouted Space Marine. Short, Squat, Bulky and Blunt. Just like the dreads it carries. I think that the pictures that have surfaced only reinforces my opinion, and I think that many many will come around. The model looks great! Some guys eloquently exclaimed that "ANY ONE COULD HAVE MAD THAT MODEL" or that "It looks like a half hearted kit bash." (mish mashed quotes guys, you get the drift). Well I repeat that the model is every thing I was hoping for. I will be getting three for my BA army and three for my GK army.
The dreads? Even more awesome. Dreads have always been on the top of my list of models I love. I wrecked face a while back using a three death company dread list and loved it. The game is trending back towards a version that is more dread friendly again... I noticed a LOT less melta on the table at The Conflict GT. So, I have written up a 5 dread, 2k point list that I will be sharing with you soon. But to the point, I think the models are cool. The Grenade Launcher is menacing, and the Lilbby bits are imposing. I can't wait to play them both! So have at it guys. Let me know what you think. I have been griping a lot about GW lately, but they definitely got these right. Good job boys, keep it up!
