GW: Aeronautica Imperialis und Necromunda Preview
Kommenden Samstag kommt mit Aeronautica Imperialis: Wrath of Angels eine neue Grundbox für das Luftschlachten in der fernen Zukunft, sowie ein Waffenupgradeset für Haus Van Saar.
Sunday Preview – Aeronautica Imperialis Is Up, Up, And Away!
Aeronautica Imperialis lifts off this week with two new factions, a new Starter Set, and four new squadron packs. There’s also a new weapon set for Necromunda.
We are cleared for launch.
The Adeptus Astartes zoom into aerial contention from next week in a completely new boxed set for Aeronautica Imperialis. They’ll be joined by the nimble aircraft of the Asuryani in a rip-roaring dogfight between raw power and xenos grace.
Aeronautica Imperialis: Wrath of Angels
This is the new Starter Set for the Aeronautica Imperialis system, containing everything you need to get those chocks away, including five Adeptus Astartes aircraft and six for the Aeldari, a 38-page rulebook, a scenario booklet, a double-sided area of engagement game mat, eight dice, 70 assorted tokens, and a transfer sheet.
There are 11 new miniatures in the box – that’s three Asuryani Nightwings and three Phoenix Bombers, as well as three Space Marine Xiphon Interceptors and two Storm Eagles. It’s a perfect way to get started with Aeronautica Imperialis – or to send your existing collections supersonic. We like it so much we unboxed it earlier in the week – you can see more of what you get right here.
Asuryani Nightwing Squadron
The main fighter deployed by the enigmatic Craftworld Aeldari, the Nightwing has a preternatural level of speed and manoeuvrability. In battle, Nightwing Squadrons weave around enemy aircraft, tearing their foe apart with bursts of fire from their shuriken cannon and bright lances. This boxed set contains six Nightwings, which have four weapon options each and can be assembled with their wings locked forwards or backwards, and a transfer sheet.
Asuryani Phoenix Bomber Squadron
The Phoenix Bomber is a heavy Aeldari strike craft carrying a ground-attack payload. Surprisingly fast and agile for a bomber, the Phoenix Bomber is capable of engaging both air and ground forces, and it’s an integral part of the Asuryani war machine.
This set contains three Phoenix Bombers, which have three weapon options and two missile array options each, and a sheet of Aeldari transfers.
Adeptus Astartes Xiphon Interceptor Squadron
The Xiphon Interceptor has been used by the Astartes since the Great Crusade. A flexible fighter, the Xiphon can obliterate both air and ground targets with ease. This box contains six Xiphon Interceptors and a Space Marine Squadron Transfer Sheet.
Adeptus Astartes Storm Eagle Squadron
The Storm Eagle is a Space Marine orbital assault craft that packs a formidable weight of firepower. Rugged and durable, it fulfils any number of roles, including as a scout, a long-ranged transport, and an interceptor. The box contains two Storm Eagles and a Space Marine Squadron Transfer Sheet.
Aeronautica Imperialis Asuryani and Adeptus Astartes Aircraft Cards
You can’t be expected to prosecute an air war without weapons, upgrades, or Ace pilots. Fortunately you’re covered with these two sets of faction cards. With 91 cards in the Asuryani set and 86 in the Adeptus Astartes set, these are all the quick references and special rules you need for the ultimate 41st Millennium aerial dust-up. There are two Aces (star pilots with special rules) in each set – including this jolly-looking Salamander fellow who can try and repair his own plane as he’s flying it – as well as named planes, and ground defences to boot.
Aeronautica Imperialis Asuryani and Adeptus Astartes Dice Sets
As Warhammer Community recently proved with the inexorable force of raw science, faction dice improve your rolls.* Can you really bear to be seen at an Aeronautica Imperialis event without a suitable set of dice? We think not, so the kind adepts at the Warhammer factory have put together two sensational sets of faction dice, one each for the Astartes and Craftworld Aeldari in dark metallic two-tone and gold-effect wraithbone respectively.
Aeronautica Imperialis: Outer Reaches Area of Engagement
While there’s already a fantastic double-sided playing mat in the Wrath of Angels box, variety is the spice of life and you can never have too many areas of engagement. This double-sided gaming board continues the theme in the main set, with a lunar imperial outpost on one side and more volcanic terrain on the other. It comes in two halves for enhanced durability, with 342 playable hexes over the total area.
Aeronautica Imperialis: Imperial Navy & Ork Air Waaagh! Ground Assets
The original ground assets from the first version of Aeronautica Imperialis return. Featuring 16 ground assets and 14 plastic markers, including flak and missile batteries, bunkers, and landing zones, this set can really juice up your games – and give enemy pilots an extra headache from another angle.
Moving from the skies to the skyless, we turn now to the underhive, where House Van Saar is getting an arsenal upgrade.
Van Saar Weapons & Upgrades
Give your Van Saar gang the gift of multi-meltas this October with a comprehensive new set containing a vast range of new weapons, ranging from shock mauls and servo claws to plasma cannons and rad guns. You’ll also get 10 new heads (two each of five sculpts), and it’s all compatible with the main Van Saar Gang box and the Archeoteks & Grav-cutters kit.
