i just want to put this idea out just to see what people think...
since GW have published the full stormraven rules in White Dwarf, would it be acceptable to use one in a different space marine army for example- ultramarines or Space Wolves?
i know this seems mad but why publish the full rules otherwise? and anyway why should it just be a blood angles exclusive unit (i suspect in time when the other marines armies are re- written they will appear).
what do you lot out there think?
thanks in advance!
My local store manager claimed the Stormraven would be available to other chapters sooner rather than later. I cant see GW producing such a large plastic kit and then limiting them to a minority marine army, doesn't make financial sense. I would have no problem with anyone using them with the published rules from WD. Its a lovely model and quite tasty, but its not cheap pointswise.

Aww. It hurts because it's true!Originally Posted by realitycheque
But I agree with realitycheque and praxis, full legality is probably inevitable. In fact, you could probably use the BA Codex directly if you don't use SM Characters or have a biker army.

Idk why they would have published the full rules (haven't seen that WD).
short answer: no.
long answer: noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
In the BA Codex, it talks about it's origins being shrouded in mystery... but it also says that is a fairly new addition. Since Blood Angels are all hot and bothered for flying units it makes sense that they would be chosen to "test it" or whatever. It also notes that GK's have been using it for a while. Therefore, I don't think it everyone else needs it.
Furthermore, they didn't paint it Ultramarines like everything else... soo..... take from that what you will.
But that's just what I think and should not reflect anyone else If they say "Hey guys! Storm Ravens for everyone!" Cool story bro, but I think it should be specific to BA and GK.
Well, they put it in BA colours since the model is launched in this wave with new BA models and their codex was the first to have its profile in it, which does not mean that it's a DH and BA exclusive. Besides, a pricy model like that? GW wants to sell that baby to any and all willing to put down the money for it. (myself included)
As realitycheque said, it would come down to your opponent agreeing for you to use it until it becomes a standard addition to the marines arsenal. Just ask beforehand and in general any and all will allow you to use it.
