From my original post in April 2009, may I present the Imperial Guard Wyvern:
Ach! "Imperial Guard" - maybe that's where I went wrong. I guess I should have called them "Astra Something-or-Other" instead - "IG" is just too damned prosaic these days!
Anyways, a rumour's popped up over at the wonderful Faeit 212 [link] suggesting that this is the direction the new Astra Militarum is going. Let's play, shall we...?
- Chimera chassis? - CHECK
- Pivot-mounted mid-range indirect fire weapon? - CHECK
- Alternative mount for hydra flak cannon? - CHECK.
Oh yeah - this is the version with the hydra:
...You'll note it's the same chassis. Sadly, it's my hydra version which has seen all the gameplay. booo-ring.
By the way - if you came here under false pretences, then I apologise. It's just a bit of fun. I'm as excited as you are about the new incoming codex!
