The Stormraven!

This is just too cool to pass up.
After talking briefly with Rich, he asked if we could use the Stormraven for the GreyKnights in the upcoming campaign.
I think this is a great opportunity to try out a new model. So with that in mind, I am going to allow ALL Space Marine Armies access to this beast for the campaign as a Fast Attack Choice. All other rules still apply i.e. you have to have earned enough "armor points" to purchase the Stormraven.
I'm not going to stop there though, I think it will be fun to allow Chaos Marines access to this as well.

In an effort to get some of these flying over our campaign world, I am making the following rules addition.
The Storm Raven is available as a Fast Attack choice for ALL Space Marine Chapters, and Chaos Space Marines. All other criteria must be met.

The Space Port tile gains the following additional rule: If a Space Marine player, or Chaos Marine player captures a Space Port they immediately gain access to the Stormraven, in this case the armor requirement is waived. In addition if an Imperial Guard player captures a Space Port then they immediately gain access to the Valkyrie, again all armor requirements are waived.

Be sure to check out Josh's background for his Dark Eldar in the comments section of my last post!


  1. Any bonuses for non imperial races for capping space ports other than the usual?

  2. Not for other than for Chaos Marines at the moment. If you can come up with a bonus that makes sense then let me know.

  3. A little side note as well, the Stormraven should be heavy support as that is what it is in the Blood Angels codex and that's probably what it will be if it ever gets chapter approved.
