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.
