With flyer being in this edition, and Forge World doing a lot of goodies and having a new book dedicated to them pending, who is getting them and what you getting?

I have my eyes on the Vulture, but the Marauder and Thunderbolt look good.

In the short term... a Storm Eagle

In the middle term a Vulture for my allies

In the longer term (Next Codex) Nightwing for my Eldar

Vultures with Punishers.

If the Chaos rules are good for the storm eagle I'll get one of those for them. I bought a storm eagle for my space wolves already. It offers a very good transport capability along with deadly death lascannons to shoot at other flyers.

On that note, I lost one of the missile pods, as is always the way right as I was about to finish building it. If a chaos player gets a storm eagle, you can't use the missile pods so how about dropping me a PM and sell them to me?

I'm waiting to get a look at IA: Aeronautica to see how/if they've re-pointed them. A Thunderbolt at 180 points is ludicrously overpriced considering the Vendetta does its job better.

I might pick up a second Vulture, however, especially now that they've got a distinct ground attack role.

Well an Eldar Nightwing at 285pts was never cheap, and with 2 HP its paper thin and will probably just be doing alot of evading. I can only hope its more than just an apoc reprint with the FAQ update.

After looking at the preview pic of the glossary of IA:Aero, I'm curious to see how they revamped the StormEagle, and i'm very curious about this Avenger Strike Fighter. Also, I wanna see this "grey knight thunderhawk." i'm crossing my fingers to have my T-Hawk's heavy bolters replaced with psycannons :)

I already have a Barracuda, and am currently looking at getting a pair of Remora. I'll have to see if anyone else in my area also wants to do a Forgeworld order though, as the postage costs can be silly otherwise.

Where can one find what is included/getting updated? Curious to know if the remora drone fighter will be in there.

Doesn't pay off. I just did a big order with friends, and when it showed up at my house, I got hit with a Handling fee, and had to pay tax on it. Smaller orders in the past just slide under the radar, no handling fees, or tarrifs.

Nice to see the Remora is in there since I'm scratchbuilding and casting my own now =)

So, when is this update due and will it be a PDF free to download or what? Not all into the whole forge world business, but perhaps I will be soon.

It's a hardback book not a free pdf update as there will be new models and rules in the book as well. Book is in pre-order at the moment and due out roughly july 27th.

Wait. A handling fee and extra tax for UK to UK delivery? What scamming delivery company are they using for that?

Thanks. Will see if I buy the book or just keep borrowing my friends current one. After all I'm just after one unit and its rules.
