Welcome to Librarium Online!
Since there is no model (yet) for both the Razorwing Jetfighter and Voidraven Bomber, I was thinking of getting the Forge World Raven Fighter model.
But which one does it represent best? The Razorwing has two wing-mounted dark lances and a twin-linked splinter rifle (able to upgrade this to a splinter cannon), so it seems this would be a natural choice.
However, the Voidraven has two void lances (not described where they are mounted) and one void mine. Clipping away (or using magnets) the splinter rifle/cannon above the cockpit could make this into the Raven.
How would you use the Raven from FW?
Innovation suffuses this hobby like a tea bag in the boiling water of play.
I wouldn't use it at all frankly, it's just so ugly. The Void Dragon or the Phoenix actually work really well for a Razorwing with it's built in missile launchers, nose-mounted shuriken (splinter) cannons, and underslung starcannons (disintegrators)/bright (dark) lances. Though, it's size is more what I would expect for the bomber, if you're only fielding the razorwing I don't imagine anyone would complain. It's worth mentioning, the artwork for the Razorwing looks a lot like a Nightwing with the wings swept back.

My question is how big is the FW raven? I was talking to one of my local redshirts and it seems that the Voidraven is freaking huge. He was saying that its around 2-2.5 falcons in length (great unit of measure eh? lol) and about that is width too. That's much bigger than i was originally thinking so it may affect how you want to use the FW raven model.
