The new flyers are all the rage, some people like them and some people don't. However we still do not know what 6th edition is going to say about flyers, and new rules for flyers will probably make all these vehicles a ton of fun to play on the tabletop.

So lets take a look again at the rules for these new flyers as they stand for the remaining of 5th edition.

  1. Christ, but that white stromchicklet is pretty. I am very much looking forward to different color variants. Though it makes the NERV VTOL resemblance even more poignant.
    I will attatch two 'talons to my Stormeagle carrying 9 assault terminators and a terminator-librarian. That ought to raise most opponents heartrate a bit.
    Also, I am pretty sure the Burna-bomma has six rokkits, but I might have read that wrong.

  2. The Storm Talon looks much better in white.

  3. Like Point wise none of these seem very viable in the current game seeing as they are expensive and only AV 10/11 at best. Sure they are pretty and new, but are they useful?

    1. The Burna-Bomma I could see as being viable, assuming it can launch all six missles in one turn. Blitza is junk unless you roll absurdly well, Dakkajet could be okay with fighter ace and more gun to hunt light vehicles or medium infantry.
      Stormtalon is sorta meh. If it could accompany deep striking troops, I could see it being quite useful. As it is, just keep it back, go hoverstrike and skyhammer your opponent. Skyhammers are basically souped-up autocannons, so same tactics apply. Whether marines need another light vehicle hunter is debateable.

  4. I have a feeling that when 6th hits, these will be considered flyers, and treated as such for purposes of being shot at, which will make them much more viable.

    I dont have my books with me, but dont supersonic moves at 36 inches give you a 3+ cover? or is it still just 4+....?

    1. Apoc styl flyer rules are to broken for normal game... only hit on 6+ and no melee or template weapons can be used & -12" on range

      with 6th ED the old flyer rules will be brought in line with the antigrave fast rules not the other way around

  6. I think I might be in the minority, but I really do like the look of the Stormtalon, its making me really tempted to make an "Air Cav" type marine army, as much for show as anything.

  7. You know, these Stormtalons are great!
    With 6th ed rules, you go 18"-36", fire all of it's weapons, no melta shenanigans, it has anti air weaponry, good for escorting things like outflankers with the allies, and your opponent needs 6 to hit!
    I like the Ork planes aswell: Anti air for the dakkajet as well as anti light tank and skimmer or anti monstour. Burna Bomma is all out horde eater. Blitza bomma is a great anti tank weapon too. I feel that they are slightly overpriced, the Dakkajet should be 90, the Burna Bomma should be 115, and the Blitza Bommer the same as the burna bommer. I also do not like the way you have to buy MORE missiles... But I can easily see someone taking an Ork/Space Marine alliegance and just rockin these things.
    However they are a little fragile. The Ork plane should be armour 11, seen as Killa Kans have that armour. The Stromtalon is fine because no melta works against it, but armour 12/11/11 would be nice. Ork lootas love going up against flyer armies, purely because of their weakness to things that actually hit. So the lootas can move around, maybe get 3 shots each off, and lay waste to your flyer... And anyone with a "+1 to hit" screws these guys over as they then hit on 5s. Like how blasts cannot hurt them, but then you have the dreaded monstrous creature flying around. 2d6 penetration, have their attacks to double their strenght, hammer of wrath, and then move on to the next target... OY! BOSS! DA LOOTS ARE KILLIN OUR STUFFS! WEZES WANTS TA SHOOT DAT IVE TIREANT! DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA!!!!!!!!!!
