The Stormhawk is the new interceptor based on the Stormtalon kit. You're thinking of the Corvus dropship.

Absolutely correct. I guess I just don't even register names anymore unless it's "Storm-something."

The 15mm Leviathan is exactly as big as a Mechanicum Thanatar. Lovell killed one in apoc a couple of years back. Bigger than a dreadknight, bigger than a contemptor. Maybe appropriate to run as a leviathan dreadnought (if those have 40k rules yet).

And I run my 28mm leviathan as a knight castigator.

It's a relatively new Forge World unit, released early this year:

I don't believe it has rules in any books yet, just the PDF (which from my perspective is ideal---no book to buy):

Is the Sicarian battle tank the same size or smaller than a Land Raider?

Almost as long depending on how you measure, but not as wide or boxy in height so the overall look is smaller. Kind of a mid-size tank halfway between a Predator and a Landraider:
