Lamenters Stormraven 'Heaven Fall'




The Stormraven designated 'Heaven Fall' was, like many other Stormravens, assigned to the Pale Stars at the time of the Battle for Optera. Malakim Phoros, in his wisdom, had wished to preserve his Chapters mobility in perilous circumstances, thus saving many of these fine vehicles. Astute viewers may notice that the vehicle has extensive modifications (not uncommon in the Chapter), most notably eschewing the standard top turret in favor of sponson weapons. Brother Darius, pilot of 'Heaven Fall', has recorded over two thousand orbital re-entries, and is considered one of the best in the Chapter.

Looks great, love what you did with the top turret, thought the original design was lacking there. Maybe have to get a GK new force just so I can field some of these...

Yeah, where did the ugly turret go? Your model looks fantastic!

I love the look of your army, man. The stormraven is a wonderful looking addition.

Think ppl will give you trouble over the sponsons? I don't see why they would, but I'm curious if you believed it would be an issue in tournaments or something.

really shows that a) it looks much better in yellow and b) it looks far better without the turret. i like the turret itself, but it looks terrible on that model.

nicely done.

Sweet! I love the paint-job too, I bet it looks great alongside the rest of your blood-crying, battle bros. (Meant as compliment) :D

Wow Chris, that is impressive.

Bigred said...

Nice, clean lines!

Such a simple conversion really looks good.

Best looking Storm Raven I've seen!
I love the red helmet stripe being echoed on the upper wing. Looks sharp!

Nicely done. Unsure about the conversion, but great to take a look at it painted. Very nicely executed. How are you finding it balancing? A few mates have had some problems with it toppling over.

I have been eagerly waiting for someone to deviate from the - GW authorised - strictly BA or GK usage. Not only have you painted it terrifically and modified the original, you have supplied a feasible backstory. Thanks for all of the above.

Last weekend I was asked, at my local GW store, if I liked the SR kit. I said "Yes, I do and think it will look good in Snot Green (Salamanders)."
Thanks again.
