So I knew there was going to be a battle report in this months White Dwarf (October 2019) but it turns out there is also 5 mission mini campaign set during the 3rd war for Armageddon. FYI you need the Rynns World book to use it properly.

 

'Judgement Squadron', formed of other squadron remnants, fights an increasingly desperate series of engagements to defend Hive Volcanus from the Ork Air Waaargh and ground forces.

The rules are similar to the standard campaign rules except you fight the 5 missions in order, and the Imperial player can't replace aircraft lost from their squadron list. They either use the historical composition + 40pts of upgrades or 300pts of other aircraft.

 

Missions 1-4 are from the Rynns world book but have extra suggested rules. Mission 5 is a new one called 'Last Flight' where the remaining Imperials have to destroy 3 partially completed Gargants to save the hive. The Ork war machines are altitude 3 terrain and do take damage from suicidal or accidental aircraft collisions.

 

There are also rules for 2 unique aces 'Leoz Answith' for the Navy, and 'Da Skymuncha' for the Orks, leaders of the respective forces.

There is about 6 pages of content including the background, and 12 overall including the battle report, so a reasonable effort from GW. I hope to see more to come!

This months issue comes with a Grot Bomb ace - he gets two moves of the grot bomb per turn.

Just got hold of mine.

 

"Rudok Redz"

 

Grot Bomb Ace: A single Grot Bomm fired by this aircraft may be piloted by Rudok Redz for +2 points. When moving, Rudok Redz may make up to two turns with his Grot Bomm rather than the usual one.
