Looking good Andy - all u need is the whitescars emblem on it. I know u aint fantastic with the freehand - but if u like i can show u how to use transfers so they don't look 'stuck on' using some matt varnish - let me know. Get some more pics up when u've 'coloured in' with yer pen, spescially the upper hull. Can't wait for mine to arrive!

It looks a lot smaller than I thought it was after seeing it in WD. It's quite a compact vehicle actually and looks like it's painted up nicely too.

Thats the only disparity in the rules I see - Here is a superfast flyer, that can turn up as an escort, but once on table you are likely to sit back at a distance sitting still with it just for the +1BS, taking away any other tactical uses for it. It's like those also ran units in some other codex's - Guard sentinnels spring to mind. Great little unit, but tends to get forgotten in favour of better choices like Vendettas, hellhounds etc. Think as a flyer it's great, but shame it got the hovermode rule. Seems like a stationary gun platform rather than the supporting gunship it's meant to be, particularly when you can arm it with range 48 and range 60 weapons.

A gun platform that can swoop on to an objective in the last turn though?

There is that - but then 2 or 3 landspeeders have more chance of doing that, and are easier to hide in the meantime, so it's not a new option. Not that I'm knicking the talon however - happen to love the models and their rules overall, have ordered two to accompany my storm eagle, just a shame the rule will lead to a nippy flyer sitting still a lot. Would rather have seen it swooping about carrying firepower where support is needed, rather than sitting there being a floating leman russ with less armour.
