Blast Away Foes Of The Imperium With A Sokar Stormbird

October 1, 2016 by brennon

If a Thunderhawk Gunship isn’t big enough for you then how about the massive Sokar Pattern Stormbird from Forge World? It’s now available for pre-order…

Sokar Stormbird (Main)

This is an absolutely huge creation. You can see just how big this is when compared to other transport options available to the Imperium below. You can grab the rules for this beast HERE too.

“The Sokar pattern Stormbird is a dedicated attack lander. It has served as a high-durability orbital assault craft, a mobile bastion and firebase which could land a Space Marine strike force and withstand heavy ground fire while its cargo or troops and war machines disembarked to press the attack.

One of the later patterns developed, the Sokar was the design precursor to the smaller Thunderhawk Gunship.”

Inside the Sokar you can pack fifty Space Marines, five Dreadnoughts a Rhino or even a mix of some of the above. When they talk about boot space next time you buy a car think back to how many hobby cases you could fit in a Sokar.

Armaments-wise this beast of a flyer has access to Heavy Bolters, Lascannons and Dreadstrike Missiles for when thinks get a bit hairy.

Sokar Stormbird (Details)

The Sokar is a very much a Space Marine vehicle too in design which I like. It’s big, heavy, brutal, and no-nonsense. Armed to the teeth it looks like it would do as much damage as a small retinue of Space Marines on the ground.

Just think of the noise this thing would make as it screamed across the battlefield ready to deliver its deadly cargo!

What do you think of it?
