So what’s next in the release pipe line or is that it for a while. Was eyeing this up in a Warhammer store a couple of weeks ago and think the wife was making mental notes for Xmas.

Are they planning to expand the orks and imperial lines or add other races.

3 more factions, Ork eavy bommer, and probably another imperial craft soon

The Ork 'eavy/grot bommer is allegedly incoming November. I'm wondering what the timescale is for other factions?

I hope it's not Necromunda levels of slow release.

I'm also wishing for a "medium" fighter for the Imperials, Avenger, vulture etc... damn greenskins and their fightabommerz

From news and Twitch interviews, the likely candidates for the remaining three factions in development are:

Eldar
Chaos
Space Marines

Pre-order next week, no mention of Grot Bommer, or any Imperial craft, last 2019 release?

The Grot Bommer is not until November, this was mentioned in a previous article some time ago.

They also didn't mention the existence of the Marauder Destroyer (not even in the Wings of Vengeance, because it only cover what's in the box) up until the pre-order preview.

They also claimed the other factions will get release quickly given me the impression that they will be done with Ork leftover and move on to the next factions in 2020 instead of dragging this, now I reckon that we'll see Grot Bommer in q1 2020, then hopefully it's new faction??? Or it go back to Q2 Lightning, Q3 Valkirie, Q4 Vulture into 2021.

Hopefully it'll be at least 2 kits per quarter in 2020.

My bad, thought they mentioned the Grot Bommer in this article, but its the regular one: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/09/04/bigga-iz-betta/

So, Grot Bommer ETA is unknown for the time being then.

Oh shoot, I just realized that the wording at that link means you can't build Grot Bommerz from that kit. Bummer = /

So the thought is it's like the Marauder variants, with a slightly altered sprue coming in a separate box?

Eyup, each Grot Bommer should be coming with four Grot Bombs.

In case you didn't notice there're goblin/grot manning the dorsal turret, you can see their green nose sticking out. This is probably the first ever appearance of AT-scale infantry

I was a little disappointed that none of the Dakkajets had open cockpits, missed a trick with that one.

I still have a couple of the old AI bommers that had an Ork hanging out the cargo bay randomly throwing bombs out. I doubt they will, but doing something like that again would be very cool.

New article up, nothing interesting aside from a (better?) look at the side turrets of the Eavy Bommer.




Also new preview this Thursday, hopefully something new.

Fir those that didn't catch the Twitch Stream today, it was all hobby and no news (despite my attempts to lure them onto the topic).

Nice nod to the system, but a little flat IMO.

The Bommers are up on the New Zealand webstore for preorder. Looks like they’re a more expensive kit than the other AI sets, not sure why they would be given they don’t look any bigger than the Destroyers and are still just 2 sprues.

Look like 2 full size sprue.


On the other note Rokkit and bombs's design seem to be the same as one in Fighta Bommerz kit.

Well at least the big bomb is different.

If I were a betting man, I'd say Aeldari in the spring.

Do the AI models feel "worth it" for their asking price? Are they fun to build? How easy would they be to hack apart and rebuilt, because for all the claimed options on the GW site the two models shown are way to same-y. Eavy Bommers might push me over the edge for AI, but the local GWs and FLGS didn't even have AI models to advertise them, so I have no real idea of their clarity of detail and for size only internet comparison pics (often from this thread). I did finally get to see an AT knight, though!

It's very much a case of YMMV. Some kits are well worth it and some aren't for me.

I got both the Marauder Destroyer and Fighta-Bommer kits yesterday and whilst the F-B kit is worth it due to all the extra bits included (rokkits, bombs of both sizes and gun pods), the Destroyers didn't, missing the bombs and missiles you want to stick under the wings. Thankfully I had enough spares from a box of Thunderbolts, but it's not something that should be missing from the box IMHO.

I've personally only gotten the orks, and while I'd love a few more extras, I definitely think they're worth it. Working on turning my Dakkajets into biplanes and due to the nature of orks they seem ripe for conversions in general.

I do agree that, from what I've seen, the Imperial options are more limited... it's part of the reason I've held off on them, hoping to wait for another of the factions to pair off against my greenskins.
