Behold, the Mega Bommer

I can only imagine what the price tag on this forgeworld piece is going to be, but maybe we'll see a similar release for a Tau Manta at some point?

Yeah this is insane, and also kind of encouraging. If FW can make resin kits for AI, and design them from scratch not based on existing designs, then the game can expand a lot.

 

I also like that they're giving it a taller base. My first thought when I saw it was that you wouldn't be able to fit any other planes nearby.

 

The single, 10 firepower bomb is quite interesting. Is there anything in AI that would warrant dropping that on? Maybe that's not a very orky question...

C+C always welcome on my Titanic Plog. Should really be painting Crimson Fists.

Wow this looks really cool.

 

The only flaw with this one is it seems you could kit bash it from 2 Eavy Bombers and it may be cheaper than resin while remaining lore friendly and authentically Orky, so I'm not sure if this will take off from the shelves.

I'm happy to see them going back to flesh out the Orks a bit more, the imperials have had a lot of new options lately.

The rules look interesting as well, matching this up with a bunch of dakka jets to run cover for a bombing mission should be an entertaining game

Ah yes, because orks needed an even bigger bomber.

Yes, I don’t have any love of FW anymore, I can’t afford their prices and I don’t like to put in the extra modelling effort on their “premier” product i.e. average moulds warped or cracked bits, and the shipping costs.
I will definitely buy the Eavy Bommer’s box for $90.00 Aus and kitbash a mega bommer from them, rather than fork out the excruciating high price tag FW is going to ask...
I admit yes it’s an awesomely cool looking model and I’m happy for others getting this and the fact they may offer other AI products down the line....

Mother of Gork that’s big!

 

If it helps anyone, I did a size comparison by scale matching the base size.

If the Mega Bommer preview pic is accurate at all, the base angle matches previous previews perfectly, like the Grot Bommers and Eavy Bommers.

 

So, here’s the Mega Bommer vs the Grot Bommer as they appear and then also flipped so they’re facing the same way (wing span comparison too). I chose the Grot Bommer for comparison as its the same frame as the Eavy Bommer but also shows those cute little Grot Bomms happy.png

Ah that's very useful, I wondered if I'd misunderstood the size...


Perhaps 3 Eavy bombers then biggrin.png

Thanks for the comparison work...It’s huge, but did you remember they said it’s on a higher stand compared to the other planes?!? Will that change the angle .. does that make it smaller?... or goodness me ...bigger !?!..

I'm not convinced that the mega-bommer pic actually has the taller flying stand - the base looks identical to the one on the Grot Bommer. I think they've done a bit of photoshopping of the mega-bommer over a "stock" base image.
Active Projects: The Great Repaintening! - follow along on my journey to repaint a Blood Ravens army. | Adeptus Titanicis: Legio Metalica - a slow-grow plog of tiny titans and tinier knights.

In the operations of war, [...] the expenditure at home and at the front, including entertainment of guests, small items such as glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor, will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day. Such is the cost of raising an army ...

That sounds likely, the painting team usually seem to get a 3D printed version to paint before the models for sale are cast.

Depending on the timeline the photo may have been taken before the longer stands were available.
