AI is a game produced by Forgeworld, you can find details here. (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog/Aeronautica_Imperialis.html)

It's a game that rewards careful thought and planning rather than the amount of dice you can roll.

THANKS! O other things what army would you do if starting cheap out of:

It depends, whether you are going to afford the budget to go Forge World models, or perhaps make your Air Force from other sources?

I went for the cheap option of buying plastic plane kits and converting them for my Orks. You can see the results in some of the other threads in this Forum, (just look for my input!)

I bought 40 plastic planes from Netmerchants, buying the Trumpeter plane kits 1/350th scale. And so far have made 20 assorted Fightas and Fighta-Bommas and have given nearly another 20 away to other people. I now have about 400 points of planes, plus some Epic Ground defence guns and all for about 50.

You can't get anywhere near as much as that from FW at their prices, but the models are FW standard.

You could easily use the plastic kits to create Imperial type flyers if you choose your kits carefully.

If you were starting cheap with real models go eldar- more expensive points wise, need less models to play your opponents!

EDIT: oh you said no pansees-

what okri said!

well going point's per not including eldar the 3 races in conterntion (because orks are clearly the most expensive) are
baisic fighter-Tbolts 40-48pts for 12
lightings 32-40pts for 10 your just as likely to feild imperials as there more expensive options
bomber 30pts for 14

Tau -basic fighter 36-48pts for 10 unlikely to feild these at 48pts unless attacking ground targets
bomber's 44pts for 14

basic fighter 36pts for 12
basic bomber 48-52pts for 12

all point values are off the top of my head you proberly want someware between 2/3 and 3/4 of you point's to be on fighters
hope this has helped

You can also buy a complete range of Eldar aircraft direct from GW in their Epic range.

Forgeworld Nightwing 12.00 for two - GW Nightwing 8.00 for three.

Forgeworld Phoenix 12.00 for two - GW Phoenix 8.00 for three

Forgeworld Vampire 14.00 for one - GW Vampire 10.00 for one.

Then you only need the bases which while not essential do help a lot.

Add another 5.00 for the bases from FW and the shipping, so you will be spending a little than the cost shown above for the GW aircraft if you also want the AI bases.

16-06-2007, 15:44
5 will only get you 5 bases though.
Most forces will need at least 10, so 10 for bases would be better!
(I now have 24 bases!!! 4 Grot bombs and the rest for planes! :D)

A friend of ours at our club is talking of going Eldar, using the GW Epic mini's though, and painting them as Eldar Pirates to go with his Dark Eldar 40k army.
Using the Eldar AI rules of course!
It's another option you might want to think about.
