At the risk of getting the cr@p kicked out of me ..... after the whole "summer of flyers" thing (with stickmonkey)
I have heard scraps that suggest there may well be something going on with 'flyers'.
I have heard some snippets about :
a) A kit for a SM flier called a "Storm Hawk" (A "Storm Hawk Gunship")
b) An Ork fighter kit (might have been a fighter/bomber?)
c) A 'fliers' supplement. (...as the first supplement to 6th Edition).
d) A Necron Flyer.
Now you have to remember I don't know so much about 40K OR follow 40K rumorz.
So .... I don't know:
a) If you have heard this already?
b) What I am talking about!
When I hear 40K stuff it really doesn't mean that much to me?
So I tried the google on 'Storm Hawk' and found this:
All of the following is from: Tempus fugitives - Age of the Emporer
"The Storm Hawk is a smaller, more agile transport from the same design lineage as the Storm Bird. Used extensively for small operations, as the Heresy progressed much of the STC data to build the Storm Hawk was lost although the Mechanicum have kept copies so that if it were to fall completely out of service a variant could be reintroduced at a later date."
Unit Type: Vehicle ( Fast Skimmer)
• Cerberus Launcher
• Turret mounted Twin-Linked Autocannon
• Hull mounted Twin-Linked Heavy Bolter
• Four Hawktalon Missiles
(each a separate weapon)
20 Models (it has no firepoints
and may not carry walkers but
may carry Jump Infantry who
count as two models)
• Ceramite Shielding
• Power of the Machine Spirit
• Deep Strike
• Assault Vehicle
What follows is the posts from this thread which seem to support this notion:
The following reference to a Storm Hawk has been offered by The Auditor:
(Also the nugget from Jes Goodwin.)
Also if I am right about the timescale then no 'holding pattern' will be required as most of the other flyers I have heard about will come out after this with their books.
and from theDarkGeneral:
and out of the blue we have this:I will say that whilst I also heard three classes .... those are not the same three classes that I heard
BRING IT ON!
PLEASE REMEMBER THESE IS JUST RUMORZ
I have based this on the smallest scraps of information, from different places.
It is possible I have been mislead or I have put two and two together and come up with complete bobbins.
