Has anyone seen the pic up of the void raven yet? It looks almost like my scratch built one I did a few years back. It's kinda cool that I got the idea of their concept even back then. Kinda humbling too.

There are two pics out there, a voidraven in blue and black and one in red and black. If I see correctly, they have DIFFERENT LANCES mounted on their hull! Options? Options!!!

The second option looked exactly as heavy disi.
But i feel that void lances would be far better (we got eenouth anti-infantry anyway)

I think Black Death, that is simply a testament to your conversion, that you made some that so obviously envisaged their original idea.

Thanks. I hope the rules are good for it when the dex drops.

The similarities to yours are remarkable BD, that must be a nice feeling! You could add the serial number "001" on yours Very Happy

I think the rules will be pretty good for the new one, they will want to sell as many as they can, after all.

Good times!

Probably the same as a D-scythe but we shall see. Void lance probably the same as before.

You said that right, "atm". Just have to see if they fix, or break, what we have already. I would like them to leave the void raven as a heavy but make the razorwing a fast attack giving them the vector dancer rule, not the VR cause it's a bomber not a fighter.

Hey guys, have you seen the size of the new void raven from grot orderly?! It seems to have a taller flight stand, and a larger flying oval base. It's definitely bigger than a normal flyer. Do you guys think this thing could be like a mini super heavy? Or at the very least, AV12 with say 4 HP?

Merged the two very similar Voidraven threads together.

It is on the same base as the Razorwing, one of the WD pics floating around is an optical illusion of sorts where the Voidraven is sat on top of a building which is why the base looks bigger.

As per the article, the dark-scythe works the same a d-scythe and I'm still tickled with the design. Also looks like we may be able to take squadrons.

Here's what mine looks like now.


I re-shaped the front and hope to paint it this weekend, again.

When the dex came out a few years back, I didn't see a kit anywhere on the horizon so I took 2 razorwing kits and chopped them up. Using the description that GW had put in the dex I felt like being a bomber it would have 4 engines and a wider stance. I didn't have any idea for the bombadire so I used a couple of the extra reaver cowls top and bottom to create the front look after extending it using the other forward nose piece. I also wanted the tail to look bigger so I used the bottom section of the razorwing that slides on and one of the other wing sections to give it a heavier look. The lances I used the back section of the elder pulse laser and the dark lance combined to make it look dark. The void mine is pieces from the tail of the talos and blades from a reaver.

After finishing it and paint, I was not happy with the flat looking sections behind the cowls so earlier this year I sanded and started green stuff around the top to round it out, getting the more sleek look.


Now, since GW is finally making a kit, I want to get mine painted up again and haven't decided on a scheme. I like the way I had it painted a couple of years back but want something a bit more menacing. Here's what it used to look like:


During the build:

Actually the heavy d-scythe is a blast so expect this one to be also.

As bad as I hate too, I may have to break off and buy one of the new ones, Just have to wait and see. Rolling Eyes

Well i thought id go in and buy the new voidraven with some B'day money, thinking yeah it should be close in cost to the razorwing so $90 should cover it.
Ha should have know better
Razorwing $69 Voidraven $115

Well at that price it looks like the razorwings will continue to "count as" for a very long time.

Ill just add a bomb looking thingy underneath instead of missles.
