Flyers Coming June 1st!



Well, the Flyers are coming!  And only about a year late.  After last year's "Summer of Flyers" rumor fizzeled, we now get the long rumored flyers from Games Workshop:

Space Marine Stormtalon Gunship $45.50
Necron Night Scythe/Doom Scythe $45.50
Ork Bommer $45.50


Once again, here is what the rules are supposed to be.

Space Marine Stormtalon Gunship 130pts

BS 4
11/11/11
Supersonic
Aerial Assault
Ceramine Plating
Escort Craft - Attach the Storm Talon to a unit in reserves to deep strike, and it automatically arrives from reserve 6" away from the deep striking unit
---Specific caveat banning you from attaching the Stormtalon to another Stormtalon in reserve
Special rule where it can hover in place for a turn to gain BS 5
--No Transport Capacity--
--No Melta weapons or flamers--
Twin-linked heavy bolters, can upgrade to twin-linked Lascannon
Twin-linked assault cannon
Potential upgrade to add Typhoon missiles
Skyhammer Missiles S7 AP 4


Necron Flyers



As they are in their codex.  We assume that one kit makes both variations.



Ork Flyers
There are supposedly three Ork flyers, though, only one kit.  So it may well be thatthe one kit makes all three variations.  Here is what we were told the stats would be:

Ork Dakkajet:

BS 2
10/10/10
Twin-linked Dakka Guns
Aerial Assault
Supersonic
Waaagh! plane - can fire twice in the turn you call Waaagh!
Strafing Run - BS 3 vs everything but jump infantry and skimmers
Fighta Ace upgrade - BS 3 against everything

Ork Burna Bomma
BS 2
10/10/10
Aerial Assault
Supersonic
Waaagh! plane - can fire twice in the turn you call Waaagh!
Burna Bomb - Similar to a Scorcha (S5 AP4)
S7 AP1 bomb in the movement phase?
Burna Missile - S5 AP4 small blast, ignores cover, one use
Grot gunner on one weapon

Blitza Bomma
No information



Stay tuned for more information!

Can't wait. The first support my guys will have had in almost 4 years.

Can't wait, gonna be amazing.

I'm not too keen on the look of the StormTalon, but that's just me. I'm sure the kit will be good.

What worries me is the backwards compatibility of the ork flyers. Since there are already Forgeworld ork flyers available, will there be useable and legal stats for them as well, or will the "new" flyers be significantly different?

Sure, you can use the "counts as rule", but I'm a bit tired of having to proxy every old model I have.

Who cares about the othere dudes! The Arrakis Dynasty will fully awaken once the Scythe(s) have been released!

Unknown said...

Oh, well. I guess I will stop writing my Scythe Tutorial and get back to making my own flyers until the models come out....

$45.00 sounds pretty cheap...

Anonymous said...

I agree with Greg... are we sure the $45.50 is correct? Seems right for the Ork/Necron but for the Stormraven I am (pleasantly) surprised!
Anyone know if the Stormraven will be available to the Blood Angels?

Aarghal said...

I'm really disapointed by the StormTalon.
It'll be a big Land Speeder.

But I'll buy it anyway.

Son of Dorn said...

$45.50 seems a lot for a unit the size of a Land Speeder (judging by the size of the cockpit). Have to see if it's good enough to be worth it.

I sure hope I get rules for a Vanilla Stormraven. Be a huge boon to my forces. :)

Admael said...

The Stormtalon looks interesting, but as an alternative to the Stormraven as opposed to in addition. I mean that for 70 points less than a Stormraven you get a very similar weapons loadout, but lose the ability to transport 12 infantry/six jump infantry or terminators and a dreadnaught. That's a lot of utility for just 70 points and I personally would take a Stormraven over the Stormtalon any day of the week.

Sir Tainly said...

Stormtalon looks too good stat wise - better than the Razorwing and cheaper, plus steals it's aerial assault party trick. Who says codex creep doesn't exist?

GreatEscape_13 said...

Exciting for the Orks, as an entirely new kit (hopefully) means that they're high in the 6th edition codex rotation. I'll ignore any comments about the Eldar Night Spinner as counter-argument to this. Heh.

Maximillian said...

The stormtalon looks interesting. Fluff wise not sure how it fits as well as if there are going to be restrictions on who can get them. I have read many of the books and as of yet have not read anything that resembles a stormtalon.

Jacqualine Cooper said...

I'm looking forward to these... have to say that with all the Ork goodies I've been seeing first from third party companies like Kromlech and now from GW, it is sorely tempting to start yet another army even though I haven't finished the first four yet LOL

pchappel said...

Looking neat... Not sure how balanced they are, and with new edition "soon"...
