It always used to be smaller than the Imperial equivalents in epic/AI 1st ed. The 40K model is a lot closer to a devilfish sized thing than the valks and vultures are.

I'll take a picture to compare them when I get off work and edit this post.

Yeah, I suspect the T’au, being filthy xenos and all, cheat by using heretical techno-blasphemies like anti-gravity and aerodynamics to make their feeble fluttering fancies float, instead of beating the air into submission like good solid Imperial aircraft do.

Am I going to be able to pre order this stuff in the US? Haven't ordered anything in months but going on the site it seems everything is inaccessible. Is there a specific time window on saturdays where they take orders then close down?

As of some weeks ago GW has resumed regular sale services.

With regards to accessibility, what browser are you using? I cannot get onto the GW site when I use Chrome for some reason, but other browsers work just fine.

I'm using a chromebook at the moment so yeah. Just about everything I have uses chrome. Edit: though I can access the new zealand gw site and see pre orders just fine, it's only the US site where this isn't working.

Can't even change countries, all I get is the top bar with non-functioning buttons and the bottom bar of the site with some of the pages working, but nothing letting me into the store itself.

Issue is Chrome related.

Thanks, I installed that and it seems to work. So i'll just use that tomorrow morning I guess. Pretty excited to get some tau aircraft.

Though I do hope GW works out whatever it is that stops their site from working with chrome which is a widely used browser.

Whilst I like Tau asthetics the Tau for AN don't interest me. But seeing Orks and Tau means that's two xenos down! Brings the Tyranids one step closer!

Most of the navy is out already, so I'm guessing SM vs Eldar next. Storm Hawk, Xiphon, and Storm Ravens vs Crimson hunters and Vampires.

I'm gonna wait for Epic proper, the eventual bundles will surely be cheaper and AI isn't worth playing on its own.

I really don't think we'll be getting epic (or at least not anytime soon), if anything battlefleet gothic horus heresy is more likely but even that is years off. I kind of prefer these games with more focus as opposed to a game that tries to include all types of combat (like 40k). This is part of why I play specialist games instead of the main GW titles.

As expected Lightning got a single pair of autocannon, and missile eat all the space. If they got more space we'd probably got bombs.

Tau ground emplacements are included in the card deck, but no models for them have gone up for pre order on the new zealand site, they must be coming later....I assume. The cards also include remora drones

Though it is disappointing to only get two sets of lascannons per Lightning box, we do get 6 planes for the price of 4 thunderbolts and they look to be similar pts/model.

I forgot to ask, what time do pre orders even go up in the US? they used to go up around the time their physical stores opened. But with the virus and stuff going on i'm not sure if they've changed the timing. Wasn't it like around 10 am eastern?

It's always been 1pm Eastern. Their shops open at 12pm Eastern.

Worth mentioning though that they usually go up 15 or 20 minutes before, but the main splashpage won't show it. Today on the New Zealand site the splashpage went up before the preorders ever did so things might be experiencing some issues right now.

Shame that the campaign book only has four new scenarios included, not counting dogfight.

You mean autocannon? If they cut down 2 pair of sky strike missile they would have enough space for the guns.

And if they really have similar cost to a Thunderbolt, they will be vastly inferior. Their autocanon damage on 5, while Thunderbolt got extra weapons and structure.

No, I mean lascannons. The Lightnings have either multilaser or lascannons. Don’t know if they used to have auto cannons, but the new models have lascannons by the text description and to my eye the model as well. I don’t, however, disagree that less missiles and instead all the gun options for each plane would have been better. I hope there is errata for thunderbolt point costs as both Lightnings and Avengers don’t seem worth the points vs thunderbolts.

The old Lightning design had a variant with access to a long barrel autocannon.

Had the same problem last week. Had to go into setting, then safari, and then clear history.

Still not buying into Aeronautica but I wouldn't mind some more imperial fighters for Horizon Wars.

Sigh, looking forward to the Eldar stuff. A few Hemlock Wrathfighters would look nice on the table.

They need to do both the Aeldari and Drukhari aircraft, the Drukhari being Corsairs, of course.
