Dark Eldar Razorwing looks a lot like the Nightwing. In fact, had the Razorwing been painted in craftworld colours I'd totally buy it as an updated Nightwing design.

DE planes are lovely anyway, the best Eldar flyers. I hope we get models for them soon. I was contemplating getting the AI starter box, but I really don't like the Ork planes. I want Imperials versus DE Air Pirates.

I do like the razor wing more than the crimson hunter, though some of the lines are a bit too Dark Eldar-ish for my liking, prefer the cleaner lines. Probably wouldn’t be hard to convert though.

It would be cool to see some Dark Eldar models in AI though.

Dark Eldar flyers are great, they have missile and both have a 2nd weapon options.

oh, and raven strike

It's part of the lore, many Kabals dislike them, but many use them because they pack lots of anti infantry dakka.

Some of the colour schemes look fantastic. Particularly like the dazzle Imperium fighters, and the purple and orange Orks, but they all look great.

The gray stripe thunderbolt is how to trigger people with OCD.

And the best one is the one with painted base

I think they definitely look better with painted bases, the other bases look like they're unfinished because it's just grey plastic.

After seeing those pics the bases do look much better painted. Think I might go for some kind of cockpit display style scheme on them.

Painting the cogs inside might be tricky though.

Based on the "What’s in the Box?" article, the bases come as one complete thing, there isn't any assembling with them.

I must be one of the few people that prefers the clean unpainted look on the bases. Maybe I’ll just spray them black as I usually paint my clear flyer posts black as well.

I'm sure you can disassemble them, if not, some putty and masking tape should do the trick.

I think i'd leave the bases bare plastic, they will receive a lot of handling moreso than the models themselves. If anything i'd paint the forward/altitude/speed arrows black (or blue for imperial and red for orks)

That would be a departure from how they usually do things. Even if this is the case, I doubt it would be difficult to pry them open without breaking them. And even if we did break them, who better than us to fix them?

They definitely come as a single piece, it's clear in the unboxing vids. I'm thinking about creating some alternatives myself, but want to check them out up close first.

The old ones were difficult to open without damaging them.

I would keep the bases unpainted, but washed with Nuln Oil or something, to define the details. I'd also paint the symbols in either black or red.

That sounds like a much better idea - and has the bonus of being significantly easier to achieve too.

Fellow dakkanauts, any word on what the standard point total for a force will be?

It's depend on scenario, but mostly your budget and what you prefer. Some people prefer straight to the point dogfight, while some prefer roll for a random one. In the new edition of AI, scenarios have a minimum and maximum points for your force, with both player agree on a specific limit.

The most standard scenario : Dogfight, in which all you had to do is try to inflict as much damage (to everything) as you can, had a force limit between 25 to 250 points, a game under 100 pts should be nice and quick.

This is a 50 pts battle report using Dogfight scenario

November for only Eavy Bommer? So we had to wait even longer for the Grot Bommer.....
I hope Imperium also get a release, lightning with 1-8 manuever.

They’ve revealed this, as peeps clocked it on release day.

There’s nothing to say this is the only thing coming in November.
