Sorry. Not posting up a link was stupid. Here it is:

https://www.shapeways.com/model/2984832/

Its not perfectly clear from the picture but they are all posed a little differently (either arms, legs or head).

PLESSE NOTE: If you do want some I did mine in "frosted ultra detail" and they came out great. I have no idea what the other materials would print like.

Of course daemonkin. I should have done that in the first place:

Heres a pick with a landraider (the bases make the robots look bigger than they are):

And then one with a dread:

Having not seen an original in the flesh I would guess they are a bit bigger than the original but I wanted them that way so they seemed more acceptable as a single model to be running around instead of needing a base of several of them.

Looking forward to seeing these with some paint on them. They look around the same size as the original metal casts to me.

Well it looks like Forge World disregarded the picture we were going off of for the Stormbird.

I refuse to accept that vehicle design into my headcannon :)

I much prefer the OG picture we're working from

It's a little boxier than I was expecting, and I suspect all of those cut-outs and angles are meant to make it look less boxy and higher tech than the Thunderhawk.

I was a little disappointed by the size until I saw the shot of the Rhino disembarking from the rear, but I suspect it's a bit bigger than we realize. What they should have done was what they did with past super-heavies; put it in a picture next to a Thunderhawk for size reference.

I'm guessing the aim was to build a bigger, higher-tech Thawk that could reasonably be seen to transport somewhere between 60 and 100 marines. Along the way it looks like this variant, at least, is meant to be more of a dedicated transport and less of a gunship/gun-cutter. I'm reserving judgment until I can see a few more angles on it, get the comparison shot I referenced above (top-down, ideally), and get a peek at the rules.


Back a little more on topic, beautiful Crusaders/Vorax, NCO!
