I was expecting a Guard flyer (well, technically a Navy flyer). I was also hoping it kicked a$$, so that was nice to see.

 Avenger Bolt Cannon, Twin Linked Las Cannon and rear mounted heavy stubber… the perfect combination of the A-10 Tank Killer and the Stuka…

Only problem I see with that model is it's design compared to its supposed role.

Having the engines be low and forward on a low level attack aircraft is about the same as saying "PLEASE RAM JUNK INTO MY ENGINE!"  Bits of flying marines, vehicles, scenery, that thing better have engines like the one I saw on the discovery channel that you can feed a volkswagon beatle into and it keeps going.

There's a reason the A-10 has it's engines both seperate from the wings, up and in the back.

 You make a very good argument SirRunOn, full of logic and reason. I present, however, the counterpoint that many 40k vehicles eschew things such as logic and reason for what some call "The Rule of Cool".

But I'm sure you could make a hand-wavey reason why the engines don't burst into flames every time they make a pass over a battle. "These blades are rated to eat a whole squad-worth of Terminator armor" or something equally silly and 40k.
