The Beasts of War live event is over, and there are new pics and rules for us to take a look at. I wrote a bunch of stuff, down, so I may be off on some bits or missed something, but this is how I heard it.

General information
Flyers will be released on June 2nd. The release will contain a Space Marine flyer, the Stormtalon Gunship, three Ork flyers, and the Necron dual kit for the Nightscythe and Doomscythe.

Other things mentioned was 6th edition being released July 7th with a starter box set in September.

Note all the sketches provided were done by Beasts of War from what they saw the models looked like.


Space Marine Stormtalon Gunship
130pts + upgrades

BS4 AV11
Fast Skimmer
Supersonic
Aerial Assault
Ceramite Plating
Deep Strike
 No transporting ability

Comes with Twin linked Assault Cannons and a Twin linked Heavy Bolter than can be upgraded to the following
Twin linked Lascannon
Typhoon Missle Launcher
Sky Hammer Missle Launcher 60" S7 AP4 Heavy 3

Escort Craft
Can be attached to a unit of deep strikers, and will appear within 6" of the deepstriking unit

Hover Strike
Can convert to a skimmer but not move in order to recieve a +1 to BS

Notes: The model was painted blue with ultramarine symbols, so we know at least vanilla marines will get this vehicle. Others are unknown. I would imagine codices without a storm raven for sure would get it. Model wise, it was shorter than a storm raven and appears much narrower.


Three ork flyers were mentioned. Its not sure whether they are all part of a single kit or two, one for the dakkajet and another for the bommers.

Ork Biltza-Bommer
Just a picture
