What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

Terror of the Skies

Fellow Archons, you have permission to laugh maniacally, for soon you will be able to get your hands on the new Voidraven Bomber, available to pre-order now.

It's no secret that we all love big kits, especially flyers we can zoom around the room when no one's looking (or, occasionally, even when they are). The new Voidraven Bomber is the latest addition to this elite club of models, a masterpiece of aviational engineering. It's also one of the biggest flyer kits we've ever released, with a wingspan rivalling that of the Astra Militarum Valkyrie (yes, it's that big) and an arsenal of weapons mounted in, on and underneath its hull.

The Voidraven Bomber features a brand new plastic canopy, designed specifically for this kit. Targeting reticules are moulded into it and line up with the heads-up display in front of the bombardier, enabling him to deliver his payload with unerring accuracy.

The payload in question is the Voidraven's most feared weapon, the void mine, which hangs ominously (and deliberately visible) beneath the fuselage. Dropped at the right moment, it causes horrendous damage to tanks and infantry alike.

There are two weapon options for the wings – a pair of void lances or a pair of dark scythes. There are also two options for the missile pods beneath the wings – shatterfield missiles and implosion missiles.

The Voidraven mimics the look of the Razorwing Jetfighter, with sickle-shaped wings and an aggressive, bill-like nose. Instead of two engines, it mounts four, giving the Voidraven the power it needs to carry its payload to its target.

You can read more about the Voidraven Bomber in this week's White Dwarf, including an interview with its designers, Jes Goodwin and Ed Cottrell, and a stage-by-stage painting guide for the Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue. You can even see it in action in our Battle Report, where three of them terrorise the ranks of the Astra Militarum. But how did they fare against a battery of Hydras...?
