Manchu, in the Aeronautica Imperialis 2019 group people mentioned you can pop the bases open by just rotating a small flat had screw driver in the slot, or even with a fingernail. Apparently they're not glued

Haven't tried mine yet but have seen quite a few where it's done, and looks easy enough

Honestly, just throw some blu-tac over the dial's indicator and you'll be fine.
I guess that’s the plan if disassembling them runs a high chance of breaking them but otherwise I would prefer to disassemble.
You'll likely break the little tabs used to hold the top and bottom pieces together. Just use blu-tac or some tissue or something.

I decided to pop a spare base open and it can be done with some care by gently popping a tweezer or screwdriver into the sides where the dials stick out. I tried pushing through the middle, but that didn't really work for me.

But yeah, they are not glued together, pic of the interior of the base, for those interested:

It minimises contact points so you can specify a close fit (so the dials are held by friction) but still actually be able to rotate the dial. The hexagonal shape is pretty arbitrary though; any regular polygon should work but I expect there’s some calculated trade-off between the fit and how difficult it makes the mould.

No, it's not hard but you do have to be a little careful. People have posted "How to" pictures that turn up with a web search.

Interesting that the old Foregworld 'Eavy Bommer is the right size to be a Fighta Bommer now.

And the Lightning is tiny compared to the Thunderbolt.


Thanks! I had heard 30% bigger. Then I saw a scale pic difference online and decided to skip this one. I will just keep building and using my old stuff for now and see what happens with the game.

Ditto, figured they wouldnt be too much trouble. Thanks

Any speculation on when the first gamemat with AI19 hexes will be out. I kinda wish that GW would use neoprene instead of card stock.


I'm excited for the 'eavy bommers.

“Rynn’s world” - isn’t that the home world of the Crimson Fists?

Also, out of pure curiosity, how do these scale to Wings of Glory/Wings of War And X-Wing miniatures?

Yup, that is indeed the homeworld of the CF chapter. I'm pretty sure this has to do with the Battle for Rynn's world, likely in the immediate aftermath of the CF monastery getting nuked by their own warhead.

Indeed, the book tells the story behind the battle for Rynn's World from the perspective of the air wings and their Ork counterparts.

Yeah, Rynn’s World is a weird one; technically it’s a Space Marine recruitment world and therefore not subject to the Pax Imperium, but it also has a full Imperial Governor as head of state, separate from the Chapter Master. So it raises PDF and may even pay Imperial taxes, and therefore has a Navy presence in addition to the Chapter fleet.
All of which means the Ork invasion should have been stopped cold but…
Anyway, the Rynn’s World air campaign was IN vs. OAW despite the Marine presence more than because of them. Don’t blow up your own base guys. The More You Know

The campaign book is quite nice. It covers about 60/40 the initial defense, and then the reconquest. The fluff portion could be just a little larger, IMHO.

I wish they'd do a few more color-plates of the forces serving in the conflict. Seeing some better examples of the RynnsGuard air-arm would be nice.

I'm looking forward to the next one, though! The background always gives me more motivation to finish a project.

That would have been cool to see some alternate color palettes. Regarding the actual painting - it seems like a lot of things the community has done is a more impressive, and I don't usually feel that way about GW studio schemes (usually the studio scheme puts most others to shame, for me).

Given the Aeldari initial focus of the Psychic Awakening, I wonder if they will cross market with an AI book including their forces for winter...

It probably doesn't mean anything, but my local GW store had the ground assets and rynn's wold board in their "last chance to buy" section.

It's not listed as such on the GW website though, so not sure why.

Likely just store not finding much success with the sales so getting rid of the game for good there rather than taking space from shelves.

Heard the same at my store last week, most of it will be moving back to the webstore soon, as most stores just don't have the space for all of AI's stuff.

The bloke in the store claimed it had been selling well (not the most trust worthy of sources of course). Sold out of their initial supply of starter sets and destroyers. Of course another (non-GW, independent) store decided to not even carry AI.

Also it was only the board and the ground assets and maybe the cards. The other stuff was still on the normal shelves.

GoatboyBeta wrote:Probably moving to website only. Shelf space is always at a premium in stores.


Yeah probably, though this was a pretty large store in terms of foot print, their shelves weren't crammed super tight like some other GW stores.

I miss the days when GW would carry most of their range in stores. Back in those days I impulse bought a lot of stuff, these days I don't because I have to then plan my next Saturday around getting to GW to pick up my order.

I had an old marauder destroyer. Put it next to the new one.

It seems there's a bit of variability in the scale increase. Some stuff doesn't seem much bigger, other things seem huge now.

The Fighta Bommer is an example of something that looks like it's gotten huge. It's not much smaller than a Marauder.

Posted this on the previous page (remembering that, for a fighter, the Thunderbolt has always been on the large side).

The Thunderbolt is a bit bigger, but the Fighta Bommer seems quite a bit bigger, or maybe it's just my eyes.

I wonder whether that bomb carousel is for the “missing” Marauder variant?

Hard to tell without anything to scale it. The AI bombs in the kits are about as detailed as those ones.

the ork bigboms look great & could imagine similar for an imperial heavy bomb.
