I was going to ask where those little rokkits came from.

Looks like the Ork Rokkits from the mid 90's release of Epic. I think I have some kicking around in a storage box somewhere.

San Jose, CA

Played my second 100pt(ish) dogfight last night and the more I play it, the more i like it. Just did the mission out of the rulebook since I was showing my homies how to play. It was fun and it really felt like air combat. Using the cardstock area of engagement is really nice and think that 2 boxes should yield an interesting game scenario.


Just ordered the ground assets and hopefully in a couple weeks the rynns campaign book.

I already have 2 games lined up for next week and it looks like my flgs community is picking it up.

has anyone tried out the night fighting & bad weather rules yet? they seem interesting.

WIP of Dagor Jarni.

Need to decide on a canopy colour, my other imperials are red which isn’t really going to work. Also can’t use contrasts on the same way as I don’t want to mess up the airbrush work.



I didn’t realise but these models are actually big enough to do colour modulation with an airbrush on individual panels. If I’d known that originally I might have gone with a different (faster to paint!) scheme.

Played one short game over the weekend. It’s fun but I really think it’s a downgrade compared to the old rules. Planes are too manoeuvrable, map is too small and the more I use them the less I like hexes.

Thinking it might work better to come up with some movement cards like the old game and play without the hexes.

You might consider blocking in your glass with a bright metal and using Gryph Charger or Space Wolves gray for the glass. Gryph charger is a greenish-gray and SW is a blueish-gray which looks nice over metal.

Geeze it takes me a long time to get models done these days. Finally finished the dakkajet squadron, led by my rendition of Da Black Barun.

Edit: photo quality really goes down using the “forum post” option in the gallery, click on them for a higher res version.



Also my first attempt at a storage solution...



I just bought $5 worth of foam and attacked it with a hobby knife. Not the prettiest solution, but it works. I went for 25mm foam, in hindsight 38mm might have been better, 25mm is only barely thick enough for the fighta bommers, and probably not big enough for the marauders.

This is good enough to play some quick games with mates. Now that I have an idea of how much space I’ll need, I think I’ll just grab a pluckfoam case and grab a couple of sheets of 38mm foam to hack up, that should be enough for both the imperials and orks.

Nice! I really like the Black Barun; I'll have to paint one myself once I get more Dakkajets.

Here's a pic from last weekend AI game:



Scenario is Straggler, which seems rather badly designed, unfortunately.

Here's my current transport option. A generic foam filled carrying case from an auto parts store (supercheap auto for my fellow Strayans).

For anyone interested, the tallest aircraft are the Marauder Bomber (not the Destroyer) and the Eavy Bommer, both of which will fit in to a 25mm deep cavity (which I achieved by cutting partway through a 38mm foam sheet, but may be better achieved by cutting all the way through a 25mm sheet then gluing a thinner sheet to the back).

Just got into the game last week. Haven’t even played yet. Plan on flying orkz. I’ve got 9 dakka jets and 2 fighta bommerz. Only 3 painted so far. But basing of the same colors as my ork kill team. Orange and grey.

Finally got around to doing something with the AI pieces, though more for Epic / AT scenery than AI at this point. Lovely stuff.

Yes it add a lot of character. Not done with the one I started need to clean it up still but that’s the direction I’m going with them.

Aeronautica Project of a different Kind, but I think it's worth sharing! :-)

Squadron Lists for Aeldari and Chaos Flyers! In my group the 3D Printers are happily churning away at those planes GW is still withholding.
Friday we'll spitball the Tau Flyers, and possibly Necrons, too, as we're also preparing a Fullspectrum 40k Campaign where BFG , Aeronautica, 40k and Inquisimunda will be combined <3
Appended is the Squadron Lists;

I'd really appreciate Feedback! We can't be the only ones starving for more factions and more planes!

I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays! I want to hear X-rays! And I want to - I want to smell dark matter! Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly because I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid limiting spoken language! But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws! And feel the wind of a supernova flowing over me! And I can know much more! I can experience so much more. But I'm trapped in this absurd body!

I missed the camo at first glance, that’s good and I like the simple cockpit glass. Do you wish, looking at your nose, that’s you’d shaved off the shell ejection ports which would feed brass straight into the engine intake? I already primed mine and want shave them off

Thanks! I can't say that I care about the ejection ports, and the position on the mini makes me think it'll be tricky to shave off. Just pretend that the ports are for something else.

I love the look of the ports on mine too much to shave them off lol! I just imagine the shells have a heavily assisted eject. I just finished my force last night. Hopefully I can post some pics tonight after work.

Well they're also in the way of more easily painting mine the way I want:

I hear that. I had to change my original ideas for my scheme. I have a ton of small pinup decals I wanted as nose art but ended up using as tail art.

Nothing fancy but at least I managed to get em all done! Took a very simple approach, especially for the orks simply because I need to get stuff done. Thinking about adding the grot bomber to feel the completion but also wanna base and paint the ground assets.
