For those who haven't seen the pictures in the Rumour section here is the WIP Chaos Heavy Bomber:

It is huge, looks bigger than a Manta though it is unlikely it will become a 40k scale model.

Also mentioned was a possibility of a Chaos Heavy Fighter.

Thanks for the shot from the side with what it is. That helps to confirm it is a bomber.

I chatted to the designer.

It's a super-heavy Chaos bomber the size of a Manta.

It's highly unlikely to be made in 40k scale.

It's very cool. :D

Found two more concept picture photos:

The designer said that it would be very unlikely of a 40k version of the Heavy Bomber as unlike the Manta it isn't a lander. Even that size a lander could play a part in a battle but a without the ability to land it just wouldn't work to have an aircraft that big in 40k.

From the beginning the initial idea for the design of the Chaos aircraft was to try and combine elements of Tie fighters and Cylon fighters, or at least that what I think the guy said. I was a little busy trying to get the photos to listen to what he was saying to someone else.

So you are saying that the boys at FW are BSG fans? (and who is not a fan of the original Star Wars)

Chaos still needs a solid Assault Lander though.

Those aircraft are really awesome, hopefulyl they heavy fighter will also make it to 40K.
Still this might be the last bit I needed to also make the step towards AI as a giant chaos airforce is a cool thought and somewhat less feasible in 40K.

i think given the initial sucess of the game (beyond FW expectations as i understand it) we can expect a healthy flow of AI minis over time.

do you agree?

Those are awesome. The Heavy Fighter is my favourite.

I've already got a good size chaos force (4 talons, 9 blades) and I think this will look pretty cool smack in the middle!

I was thinking that maybe we'd see some sort of Imperial armour 6 tie-in daemon engine ground defense vehicle, as it sounds like the next IA supplement might be around the time of that book.

I don't think they'll have AI in the IA books maby scenarios but I think they'll have new AI suplaments
