Ork Fighter Bommerz

These Ork Fighter Bommerz were on display at Warhammer World in Nottingham.

The Fighta-Bommer is the Orks’ primary tactical and strategic bombing aircraft. The Fighta-Bommer is capable of both void and atmospheric flight. It is used to bomb enemy bases and to assault enemy starships, or even in some cases to dogfight with enemy aircraft.

Constructed with typical Orkish crudeness, these rickety, gravity-defying contraptions are often surprisingly effective and dangerous to friend and foe alike, as is common with most Ork technology. Fighta-Bommerz are often deployed as air support during large Ork planetary invasions, or to serve as point defence for Ork starships.

Fighta-Bommerz are created by the few Meks who are interested in aircraft. As with all Ork vehicles, Fighta-Bommerz are kit-bashed affairs that usually defy the laws of aerodynamics, and fly despite their ungainly, brutish construction.

Attacking the T’au

There are a range of huge dioramas in Warhammer World in Nottingham. One of them involved Imperial Titans attacking a T’au base.

Including the powerful Warlord Titan armed with Mars Pattern Warlord Titan Apocalypse Missile Launchers

Imperial Warlord Titan

The Apocalypse Missile Launcher is a Titan-class support weapon capable of firing volleys of missiles to saturate a wide target area. The superior elevation and mobility of a Battle Titan as a firing platform makes the Apocalypse launcher a surpassingly flexible weapon. When mounted in pairs on the Mars pattern Warlord Titan, the Apocalypse launcher becomes even more deadly.

Supporting the titans was a Mechanicum Ordinatus Ulator.

Mechanicum Ordinatus Ulator

A rare and truly arcane weapon system of staggering power, the Mechanicum Ordinatus Ulator is of the smaller classes of Ordinatus, but nevertheless is one of the most potent war machines at the Imperium’s disposal.

The Ordinatus Ulator carries a trio of Volkite Culverins as its secondary armaments, but its primary weapon is the Ulator class Sonic Destructor. A terrifying weapon whose origins lie in the shadows of the Age of Strife, the Sonic Destructor generates a wave of annihilation that wreaks havoc across the battlefield.

Attack on the Titan

There are a range of huge dioramas in Warhammer World in Nottingham. One of them involved Imperial Titans attacking a T’au base.

The Reaver Titan was marching forward despite being repeatedly attacked by T’au forces.

T’au battlesuits  flew over the attacking forces attempting to stop them.

It was an impressive display and included a huge T’au Manta as well. The scenery is excellent representing a T’au base or colony.

The Battle For Angelus Prime at Warhammer World

One of the huge displays at Warhammer World is The Battle For Angelus Prime.

The Battle For Angelus Prime

This enormous diorama is full of models; with space marines, tanks, flyers and titans.

The moody lighting made photography difficult, but I did like how the walkway around went up so you could see right into the heart of the diorama.

Imperial Knight attacking against T’au forces

There was a huge display of Tau forces defending themselves against an attacking force of Imperial Knights.

The Imperial Knights did appear to be significantly outnumbered, but were holding their own. I really like the Imperial Knight models and nice to see them in big scale compared to the Epic ones I have somewhere…

Imperial Knight

Fighting for the T’au was the KV128 Stormsurge.

KV128 Stormsurge

An absolute colossus of a machine, piloted by graduates of the Ves’oni’Vash, the KV128 Stormsurge is designed as an extreme heavy-weapons platform. Not as manoeuvrable as a Riptide, instead relying on thick armour and devastating loadouts, these hulking, squat ballistic suits are capable of changing the course of a battle in seconds with a decisive volley of astonishing firepower. Fitted with thrusters to counter recoil, bristling with pulse weaponry and missile pods, the Stormsurge is the T’au Empire’s Titan-killer.

It was an impressive display and included a huge T’au Manta as well. The scenery is excellent representing a T’au base or colony.

The Manta measures 630mm/25 inches long and has a wingspan of 860mm/34 inches! Weighing in at 12.5 kilos/28 pounds, it weighs six times as much as a Thunderhawk Gunship.

This is one big model. I was never sure how you could use it in games, the weight must make it challenging to use in tabletop games.

I certainly don’t have the funds to buy one, and no time to build and paint one. As it comes with two Devilfish, two Hammerheads, eight Battlesuits and six Gun Drones, I don’t think I would even have the time to build and paint those.

Bring back the Epic version, well bring back a version for Adeptus Titanicus.
