[Warning: What follows is basically just a rant. But, I felt I had to get it off my chest ]
Now, I know that GW has a long history of producing rules that in no way represent the fluff, but this one really gets to me.
[The Voidraven's] aerodynamic design and supersonic turn of speed allow it to dance through the sky with balletic grace ... thinking nothing of aerial manouvres that would kill a lesser steersman.
And this is represented in the rules by ... the Flyer unit type. Meaning that in game terms, it is no more manouvrable than this:
Where is my balletic grace? Where are my death-defying aerial manouvres? The one concession they have made to the fluff is the supersonic special rule, which does let it go really fast in a straight line
, provided that it doesn't actually want to use any of those expensive weapons hanging under its fuselage.
It gets better though...
Voidravens are invisible to all but the naked eye and mount complex sonic dampers that completely obscure the sound of its engines. Sensors and early-warning equipment are rendered useless by a stealth warfare suite of such potency that the craft might as well be obscured by dark sorcery.
And this is represented in the rules by ... nothing at all, unless you count the option to take night shields.
That means that this
firing one of these
will, on average, hit this flyer 3 times before it can even fire, with half of those hits penetrating and guaranteeing that it will be snap shots only for that opening barrage.
But maybe that's supposed to represent plucky Guardsman Jones using his naked eye to take on this supersonic bomber
Beat that for "forging a narrative".
