Ok, Boys And Girls. The Stormraven.
I don't have strong feelings about this one. In a way, I am unhappy that they are (maybe) finally releasing this, since I was maybe going to use these for my Mantis Warriors. See, now that there is an official model, my scratchbuilt ideas probably won't work. Of course, I do so much counts as that I doubt anyone will care.
In any case, on to my feelings about the (maybe) new Stormraven. It looks like what it is. A flying landraider. Someone, I dare you to tell me that this is not a typical Games Workshop Space Marine set? If you were to get a Land Raider and a Land Speeder together and let them share a milkshake, something like this might happen. Maybe we should call it the Landhawk.
I think the real root of the problem is that after the phenomonal Dark Eldar models, this just looks 'typical.' That's really the best I can put it. Give it a little while, and it will be a part of the accepted SM mythos, just like the new land raider.
