The Fire Raptor is a variant of the Storm Eagle, sacrificing transport capacity for a reinforced airframe and increased weapons payload to create a resilient dedicated gunship. Each Fire Raptor is capable of unleashing a devastating rain of Avenger Bolter rounds and missiles. The versatile side turrets can be fitted with lascannons or autocannons as mission parameters demand.
The Fire Raptor excels at pounding ground targets with hellstrike missiles or performing strafing runs with the avenger bolt cannon. As an interceptor, Fire Raptors are utterly deadly at mid range, while the side turrets take on targets of opportunity and keep agile enemies from outflanking them. The heavy bolters in the turrets shred opponents at close range, while autocannons operate best at mid range, and lascannons offer accurate fire to soften up tough targets or pick off wounded ones.
The set includes:
- 2 multipart plastic Adeptus Astartes Fire Raptor miniatures
- 2 Aeronautica Imperialis bases (each base designates the model’s front, rear and side arcs as well as speed and altitude dials. Each base also includes a clear stand with which to connect the aircraft to the base.)
- 1 Space Marine Squadron transfer sheet
The rules for using these miniatures in games of Aeronautica Imperialis can be found in the Wrath of Angels boxed game. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
