While not being extremely necessary for the game (except the Ork AA gun, being a model for the book range), that's all very cool stuff. Especially the imperial stuff is great, I already can imagine small air bases made from one tower and two or three landing platforms.

Just one question for AI terrain:

What is the size for one level?? because if i want to be hide by a mountain, it may be difficult to see the right size

These look great, looks like Im getting into AI at the right time with all this terrain due to be released. Any idea on a date?

I haven't seen anything on a release date, but it can't be too far away. Expect something in the next two months or so.

somewhere, i read july, so perhaps toward the end? (chaos harbinger is already slated for the 2nd july i think, and these haven't had their forgeworld newsletter official announcement yet).

Darnok - the Flak Gun is not in the book - the Flak Wagon is and the 'Eavy Flak Kannon are. Neither of which have a model at present. Although the Flak Gun's turret can go on the FW Gunwagon base, so I do not see that far off.

So, we can do anything we want for the size???? All right, we go to play like "top gun" or "hot shot" for dogfighting

The Epic Flak Waggons are just fine for AI, I have 4 myself all painted up.
And for 'Eavy Flak Kannons I have used both the Epic Ork 'Uge Guns and some "looted" Imperial Hydras which fit the bill really well, and are all much muich cheaper and more easily available than FW stuff!

Umm, my mistake. Anyway, the model is just fine for use in AI. But if you want support for "publish all the book models first": you have my vote, even if I'm happy about everything else they bring out.

Cool stuff.

The Anphelion Pads looks awesome.

But I think I saw the Imperial pad somewhere.... Now I know. Anyone seens Star Wars Episode I ( landing on Couruscant)?

hehe yep, though that pad though tells me there could be one 4k sized for thunderhalks etc coming our way.

That stuff looks awsome I hope they release a runway too. because you can't just build a air field for ATOL aircraft...

Must...play...some....games

I've got a load of scenery to make up and I might just have to add these when they come out...

Yep, pretty much. Just assign any terrain you want a height level. You might have a building take up 0 height, but if it is quite tall, you might want to say its alt1. Or you could have tiered mountains that are alt1 and alt2. etc.

do landing pads have an effect in AI? i had never even heard of this game until yesterday when I saw some people playing it a Warhammer World... now I have to try not to convince all my friends to start playing it too!

No effect gamewise as landing pad, but they could be used as objective markers for bombing runs.
And you will want to have a nice looking gaming table when you have convinced all your friends to try this great game :)

you could also use one to represent the centre of a landing zone, if you wished.
