Blood Angel Stormraven Gunship Details and Revalations

I've been thinking about what the Blood Angel Stormraven Gunship should look like. I'm imagining that it will be a flying brick with a few guns and short wings.  It would be a cross between a Land Raider Assault Tank and a Thunderhawk Gunship.  I think the old Epic Thunderhawk Gunship Flying Bricks might be just about right but with the flair of the Aquilla Lander Winged style wings.  That would be right and proper Blood Angel-y.

I'll post up a couple of sketches what I think it should look like and begin building one.  Chime in with some thoughts.

These cool pictures have been floating around the internet too. GW have brought the Space Hulk levels of details to the new Blood Angels range.  Great job GW!

Death Company with lots of great interesting details.

Assault Marines of the 2nd Company (note the yellow teardrop on the right shoulder pad signifying Company designation), with a cool special character.  Note the inferno pistol held by the model in the top right of the photograph and the handguard of the chainsword held by the model in front of the Rhino.

Rumor says these are Sanguinary Guard. I can't say for certain but they certainly are some of the coolest models GW have ever made.  There on tons of great details in the picture so you've got to find all the cool stuff for yourself.

Hey Jason

looks like I might be building a Storm Raven or two as well. We'll have to compare notes. Also those guys are Sanguinary Guard, full plastic. Saw the sprues today and they look great!

Yes. I've got a very good idea for the model that is sure to be a hit.

I'm not quite blind on it. I know it's disembarkation points and weaponry. Putting all the elements together will be the challenge.

Yes, but are they suitable cinematic?

Lets see those sketches! I want to convert one but I have no clue where to start : / Would love to see your vision of one.

Cinematic is for chumps! Suitable cinematic is for chimps!

Dave and I have made some good progress on the project. Sketches will be forthcoming.
