The pre-order preview has dropped, all the new AI stuff is dropping in one week.
This accelerated release schedule is going to be expensive!

Wooo, Taros! That's from the old Imperial Armour book! I hope this is a way to keep the stories from those early Forge World books available in print. If so, I want a Chaos expansion covering Vraks.

Yay, been eagerly awaiting more tiny planes.

A shame the plastic Avenger strike fighter kit is not in this release though.

I like the old Lightnings better. Why did they ever change those?


"The Nova Terra Interregnum has been remembered unfairly by those few who remember it at all. True, many malcontents, provocateurs and petty lordlings flocked to its banner when it seceded. But its attempts to contain the aggressive expansion of the Ecclesiarchy were born from an honest desire to uphold those values at the hart of the Great Crusade. It is ironic that the last gasp of the Emperor's true vision was finally throttled at the hands of those who fought in His divine name, on the planet that once reminded our Lord of 'Urf, long ago...'"

Good question. Actually my fondness for the lightning is because back in the mists of time I bought a lightning model at games day. I'm not sure I'm entirely behind the Voss redesign but I'm still a sucker for the swept wing design.

Lorewise, I think they were orignally meant to be different models of lightning, with the Primaris Lightning being the overly complex predecessor nd the 'modern' Lightning being a deliberately degraded design that was lost and then found again. No idea if they changed that though.

Interesting that Lightnings come in boxes of 6 and not 4. Also noted that the Valkyries are in a box of 4.

 

Having bought the original starter, I don’t need 6 Lightning fighters so going to go halves on a box with my buddy

I think that’s a function of they way they design the sprues. 3 Lightning’s could fit on the same sized sprue as a thunderbolt and each box is priced for two sprues. Follows the philosophy of all the SG releases.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Ring of fire would probably also be applicable?!

I'm interested by AI and the tau planes are lovely. I've only played once thus far and it seems heavily skewed towards the imperium as a game unless I've read the game totally wrong?

In terms of releases there are is a heavy skew towards the imperium at the moment, I think Ork/imperium are balanced in game terms now both the Ork bomber kits are out but they play differently.

For missions which involve landing or extracting troops the valks could end up giving the imperium a big advantage, but we need full rules and points to know. The Irks could probably do with a Chinork for those missions.

It will be good to get full Tau rules, play a few games and see if they are balanced. They may be at a disadvantage for landing troops as well, which would be a shame as rapid redeployment is a big thing for Tau. Hopefully an Orca or something new for them will be forthcoming.

Yeah the game hasn’t really captured me. It seems like a worse version of x-wing.

The Imperium flyers are fun to paint though
