What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

A helfrosty reception

This weekend saw the Stormfang Gunship go on pre-order, a new and deadly war machine for the Space Wolves. Heavily armoured from bow to stern and armed with a devastating helfrost destructor, it’s destined to be the terror of the skies and the doom of aliens and heretics across the galaxy.

Forged in the shape of a wolf’s head, the Stormfang Gunship is an unsubtle, brutish aircraft that’s more like an armoured ram than a plane. All thrust and power, it skims low to the ground, unleashing a hail of fire from its vast arsenal of weapons before roaring into the air to tackle enemy flyers. Adept at both ground assaults and air-to-air combat, it’s a fearsome adversary that even the most hardened fighter ace wouldn’t want to face.

Heavy bolters, skyhammer missile launchers, multi-meltas, lascannons, stormstrike missiles – the Stormfang Gunship has access to a range of devastating weapons, all of which come in the kit. One things for sure, though, you’ll be wanting to use the new helfrost destructor, which fires a beam of energy at its target, shattering it into icy shards.

The Stormfang is piloted by an Iron Priest and backed up by a powerful machine spirit. While most of the craft is dedicated to engines and guns, there is still room inside to transport a squad of six Space Wolves – a nasty surprise for anyone thinking it might be an easy target.
