    Current Planetstrike rumours

    I guess, this should be discussed in its own thread:

    Yes, Planetstrike is the name of the next supplement (unless someone at GW reads this, gets mad and changes it out of spite). Itís about taking the game into the 3rd dimension (Waa?). This is why youíve been hearing about a deepstrike book; but itís much more than that! It is about adding flyers and drop pods into the game but also about fighting missions with a clear attacker/defender. Iím sure this has been said before elsewhere so consider this another ďconfirmationĒ if you will. There will be a plastic SM drop pod that can also be a chaos deathclaw (I think thatís what itís called). There will be plastic storm troopers (look like kasrkin) and a plastic valkyrie. The Valkyrie may even be available as a transport in the next guard codex. There are also several new terrain kits in the works. A landing pad, a defence laser and a bunker. All of these can be combined to create a fortification and it goes without saying that they are compatible with the current CoD building sets. There are some other things Iíve heard about Planetstrike, but Iím waiting for a second source to confirm them before I spill.

    Planetstrike will be released at GDUK AFIK since 5th will now be out at the beginning of the summer (they switched places for some reason). (...)

    ...so Merry Christmas!

    Yeah baby !

    I like the idea of a "deepstrike" codex, makes for fun scenarios.

    So the Apocalypse flyer rules are going to become the basis of an entire expansion? Cool! Oh and I want the plastic Valkyrie! Then I can do the Air Cav Guard army [theme tune on] Da-da-dar-da, da-da-dar-da.....

    Sorry for being uninformed, but when will GDUK be then (as planetstrike will be released there)?
    I honestly haven't got a clue.

    Re: Current Planetstrike rumours

    Hmmm, Why is it always a Valkyrie? What i want is a plastic Thunderbolt and Marauder!

    So, i think the whole point of the game will be a limited force of Defenders, holding off waves of enemy aircraft and drop troopers and teleporters, then later in the game the Defenders reinforcements drop in.

    Perhaps different forms of deep strike, Dropping, Parachuting, Teleporting, undermining, etc

    UK GD is 'traditionally' the last weekend in September (expect UKGD 08 to be around 21st Sept 08) Hmmm planetstrike swapping with 5th ed release ... not so sure on this.

    Plastics sound cool, I'm about to embark on a few tests for an IG Cadian Drop Regiment so I hope the plastic Valkyrie comes off - it could save me a fair bit o' cash.

    Thunderbolt & Marauder don't have much to do with getting troops on the battlefield. Aerial/orbital/subterranean transports are order of the day.

    But they are so much cooler!

    Its a way of Delivering your opponents troops to a place lower than the battlefield, due to a well timed Bombing strike!

    ooohhhh....thank you, will i make a few more stabs in the dark?

    Necrons being the teleportation masters, along with the Orks.

    Space Marines getting lots of nice well rounded attacks with Thunderhawk Borne Troops, Dropping Assault marines and Teleporting Terminators.

    Imperial guard get more unconventional things such as Termites, Parachutists and Valkyrie drops.

    This is what I like. Too bad I already have two whole squads of metal Kasrkins. This is especially nice for Inquisition armies that want plastic troops, but don't want to use regular guardsmen for their Storm Troopers.

    A plastic Valkyrie is also nice, and if released will be put on my long term to buy list along with a Baneblade. The only super heavy I would try and get near release is a Stompa

    If they don't release plastic gargoyles at that time, they never will.

    The Trygon is more in keeping with the current 'Planetstrike' ideas me thinks. A plastic Gargoyle set is dearly needed for the Nids but I don't think it'll be forthcoming with this release.
