I wonder how much GW is going to stick to canon aircraft, vs. go off into the woods with new or updated designs and specs?


We’ll probably see more variants (the old game had a photo recon and “dam buster” variants of the Marauder which never got made into models) but the Imperial Navy alone has ten basic chassis to choose from, and the introduction of flyers into 40k has added a number of new models for Marines, Eldar, Tau and Chaos, as well as giving the Necrons some planes.

I am not a fan of the scale changes.... at least from what I can eyeball. The T-Bolts and Fighta-bomberz look huge!

They may not fit with my old forces.....

Maybe another reason Rynns world contains the rules is for existing players who just want to be up to date with the new version? This would actually work in their favour as the game will be on the tables much sooner and getting noticed...

That's basically just the normal rulebook more than it is an expansion, with the starter pack having a booklet version in it (no campaign rules etc).

Anyone really want them to release the ‘eavy Bommer kit already too?

I grabbed the game box and a box of Thunderbolts from Amazon at a discount. Got the set with anti-aircraft guns and missiles and the cards from GW (not available yet on Amazon.)

I'll get more planes when they are available at a discount. Same with the Rynn's world rule book.

Curiously enough, got two boxes and a bit to share with a pal. I'm taking the ork sides without any previous orky tendensies, thinking of hacking and painting them up as a small mercenary band that does odd jobs for the Imperium when they are lacking in power. A Blood Axes flying circus, perhaps :d

2 Starters, Rynn book, Marauder Destroyers for me.

Rynn mat is a hard pass, it costs the same as a 3x3 mousepad mat. Until I get one of those, two starting mats combined give the same total area anyway.

Most mouse pad mats are only single sided. The GW one is double sided. That may make a difference for some folks.

And easier to carry, to be fair. But it'll take the durability of neoprene over cardboard any day.

So far as I can tell, the ranges etc are all measured base-to-base.

Therefore, provided your Tiny Wee Plane (TWP) is otherwise WYSIWG, it being more Tiny Wee than standard TWP's shouldn't make much difference.

And as ever, on that basis, if your opponent is whining about that, chances are that's the least of your worries in that particular match up

Isn't that what the K4T Wolfcub of the Enothian PDF was supposed to be in Double Eagle?

That's actually a pretty cool concept for a conversion squadron. I think they were also supposed to have a larger turbo-prop fighter-bomber too...

I had no idea wtf those planes were in Double Eagle, I did some googling and someone posted some renditions based on the description.

I also really wish the AI mats were neoprene like what you can get third party but unfortunately my GW store said I can't use gaming surfaces other than GW products. This makes AT a little hard given that GW doesn't actually sell an appropriate 4'x4' neoprene mat.

What would be cool is to get a ton of the Hexon plastic hex stuff to make a board for this. I always wanted to do it for Ogre Miniatures, but the shipping on enough Hexon stuff was always a bit too much for me to swallow.

The hexes are 4 inches, so bigger than the GW hexes and the bases, but in my opinion it would let you make some pretty cool terrain.

I personally, like to scratchbuild my own AI planes, but you can also find a lot of interesting stuff for PDF, Rogue Traders, Gue.vesa, Lost and the Damned, and other human based forces in other lines.

The Airspace Compendium has a lot of fun rules for various commercially available lines. I also like Vanguards aircraft.

Yup, and It's where I got the idea for my fighters for 40k, (I couldn't afford thunderbolts and lightnings so the $35 ork jet kit was a bit more affordable).
Here is chris13f original f86 sabre imperial dakka jet.

Anyone who hasn't seen a P-51D in person needs to. The only airplane I've ever been up close to that rivals its presence is the Tomcat.

Fo sho!

I'll see your tomcat & raise you an SR-71.

The P51D sounds & looks better than a Spitfire. Weird that it sounds better since they have the same engine.

They have Mustang at Duxford and indeed it is a very nice looking plane.

It resides in an American memorial hanger with a B-52 and other beautiful craft such as the SR-71. Always enjoy visiting and the highlight is watching the Spitfires and Dragon Rapides taking off and making flybys, whilst enjoying fish and chips out on one of the benches.

But for me, it has to be the film star residing at Duxford and her name is the Sally B. She portrayed the Memphis Belle in the 1990 movie, and is blessed with both name-designs. I was ten years old when they bought in the other Flying Fortress from europe, for the film, and lucky enough to see them fly over my home.

Getting back to the topic at hand, it would be amazing if there was an Aeronautica Imperials game event hosted at Duxford.

The Mustang and Spitfire look great together, if you ever get that opportunity. Personally, the Mosquito is my preference to those.
