Imperial and Ork Ground Assets

Having decided to take the plunge into the world Aeronautica Imperialis with the Wings of Vengeance boxed set, before it was replaced with the Skies of Fire I did take a look at the new releases that arrived with Skies of Fire. I then took a look back across the Warhammer Community site to see what releases I missed when Wings of Vengeance was launched.

I did quite like the look of the Aeronautica Imperialis Imperial and Ork Ground Assets.

Add a new dimension to your games of Aeronautica Imperialis with this handy set of ground assets to support your Imperial Navy and Ork Air Waaagh!

However doing a search of the GW UK website store didn’t turn it up, and most of my usual suppliers of GW stuff were either out of stock or wasn’t even listed.

So I was resigned to not getting a set…

Then I “discovered” a box in my local games store.

In the box you get a single plastic sprue with all the models on it.

The set contains the following plastic terrain tokens:

      • 2x Manticore Missile Battery
      • 4x Hydra Flak Battery
      • 2x Imperial bunker (ground target)
      • 4x Flak Platform
      • 2x ‘Eavy Flak Kannon
      • 2x Ork bunker (ground target)
      • 2x Landing zone marker
      • 12x Numerical marker

I took the bunkers and gave them an undercoat of Corax White.

For the Ork bunker I painted it first with Snakebite Leather Contrast paint. I used Leadbelcher on some of the metal details and Averland Sunset for the Ork motif. I then washed the model with Seraphim Sepia Shade.

For the Imperial Bunker I used Basilicanum Grey Contrast paint, which worked very well. I painted the Imperial Eagle with Skullcrusher Brass.
