Caestus Assault Ram

FLY THE UNFRIENDLY SKIES Each time I start a new loyalist or traitor force I pick a theme to anchor the rest of the force around.

Storm Eagle

VLKA FENRYKA STORM EAGLE I'd been pre-warned by a number of friends that Forgeworld's Storm Eagle kit could be a somewhat "challenging" build, especially getting the fuselage to align neatly.
