Aeronautica Imperialis: Necron Preview
Überraschend erhebt sich das uralte Volk der Necrons von ihren Gruftwelten, um ebenfalls in die Luftschlachten von Aeronautica Imperialis einzugreifen.
The Necrons are Bringing 60 Million Years’ Worth of Air Superiority to Aeronautica ImperialisThe skies of Aeronautica Imperialis are busier than ever, following the release of Wrath of Angels, which introduced the Adeptus Astartes and Asuryani into the game for the first time. Now, an ancient race awakens to claim the area of engagement for themselves.
Yes, the Necrons are coming to Aeronautica Imperialis thanks to a range of new models from Forge World and, while their ships may look like croissants, they’re not just here for breakfast. Flying into enemy territory first is the Night Scythe. Just like its Warhammer 40,000 counterpart, it’s armed with a pair of tesla destructors and can be used to transport troops deep behind enemy lines.
If you’d rather do away with that transport capacity,* you can alternatively add a heavy death ray and upgrade your ship into a Doom Scythe. And who doesn’t love a death ray?!
Both aircraft are as fast and manoeuvrable as an Asuryani Nightwing – one of the benefits of a robot pilot is that they can’t pass out due to the G-forces you’re pulling.
It’s not just fighters that the Necrons are bringing to the party though, they’re also sending in the Night Shroud bomber. It’s faster than a Phoenix Bomber, and while it’s not quite as manoeuvrable, it does allow you to drop death spheres on your enemy’s emplacements.**
We’ll have more news on the Necron aircraft as we get closer to their release.
* We highly recommend this, as Necrons are notoriously bad at putting their folding table back up or returning their seats to the upright position.
** By the 41st Millennium, it’s been confirmed that the sphere is the deadliest of all shapes.
