There has been rumored to be a flyer supplement for some time, and it was assumed by people (even me), that this would be for Warhammer 40k. However, this morning from a German Site we have a little different answer to this release....

This morning we have this picture, and it looks like Forgeworld is putting out a new release in the near future. This picture is the source of the rumors, and here is where it comes from.... (you will need to read german)
http://www.gw-fanworld.net/content.php?121-Forge-World-Imperial-Armour-Aeronautica

According to WD for release in june
it has over 40 aircraft
It is intended I beleive to update existing flyers into 6th edition.

I am still looking for details on this one, but they are rather sketchy atm.

24 Comments:

  1. They are really pushing the fliers for 6th.....

    Seemed like they couldn't get enough of them into WD this month.

  2. Personally I think it looks faked to me.. like someone made it on paint then put a grain effect over it to cover it up. But just me....these days who knows!

    2. Yeah I thought this too.

      ...Grainy with no other markings and aeronautica in kind of plain black font.
      It looks like it should be a splash page for a chapter on flyers in an existing forgeworld book.

    3. They talk about it in WD, not fake

  3. Would GW use pics in their ad campaign for FW product? It's in the GW trailer and more than likely a pic in the book, no more. And its a logical step for FW to update the Aeronautica book for 6th

  7. It is the German equivalent of the description for Imperial Armor Aeronautica on p. 97 of this month's WD, at least that is the page number for the North American edition. Regarding the picture, it is the one found in the WD, so it's not fake.

  8. It's got a two page spread in the new wd (uk wd p96-97). No specific mention of when it's released, but def NOT a fake.

  9. Yes. Look in the White Dwarf, page 97. Can't miss it - two page add. Forgeword release, yes. 40 aircraft. Story based map campaign.

  10. Containing rules for over 40 aircraft and anti-aircraft vehicles, this new book also features a story-based map c,ampaign that pits the noble defenders of the Imperium against the Arch-Enemy of Mankind, the dread legions of Chaos. Six scenarios allow players to refight the desperate struggle to control the world of Kerrack in exciting games of Warhammer 40,000. Page 97

      Besides, ain't the mantra the size of a board..........

    4. Or pretty close. Ive seen one in person. A little less than a yard. Heavy too....for resin. But i can carry almost 200 things so not surprising.

    5. IIRC, 36" wide, 25" long, 12" high, and it weighs over 12kg! It can transport vehicles! It's ridiculously awesome! Why doesn't everyone have one? ... :D
      If they're making the story Imperium vs Chaos I want to see two things: a Chaos Daemons flyer and a CSM Harbringer Bomber!

      Delete
    6. "Why doesnt everyone have them?"

      Because paying $1000 for a tau vehicle doesmt sit right with some people :P

      Delete
    7. For real... items are way expensive. Awesome to have but if I did would never bring it to a game ever... and it would just sit in a glass shelf to admire

      Delete
  11. I'm pretty sure they're just updating all the forge world flyers for the new 6th Ed flyer rules.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Cover probably isn't finished yet, but it is true. 40 updated/new rules for flying Forgeworld models! Including the Tau Manta, for you natters that own that awesome chunk of resin.

  13. Isn't Aeronautica their Epic scale fighter game?
