What next for Aeronautica Imperialis?

I’ve enjoyed painting my Aeronautica Imperialis models and even I am impressed that I have managed to build, undercoat and paint them in a relatively short timeframe. I did my Valkyrie Assault Carrier in a week! I would usually take a few years to paint them (if at all….).

I started to think about which models I would get next, and that got me thinking what we have seen that still needs to be released and also what could be released in the future and what I would like to see in the future as well.

Some of these are obviously core Games Workshop releases, some could be plastic kits and I think others might be Forge World models or upgrades to plastic kits.

Forge World have released some kits for Adeptus Titanicus, such as weapon upgrades, new titans and scenery. I would like to think that they would do something similar for Aeronautica Imperialis.

What I might get next?

So, there are now quite a few released models for Aeronautica Imperialis, Ork, Imperial and now T’au aircraft. I bought Wings of Vengeance, so I already have Ork Dakkajets, Fighta Bommerz as well as Imperial Thunderbolts and Marauders. I also bought a box of Valkyrie Assault Carriers.  I was lucky enough to find a box of Ground Assets recently, so I have those as well.

The obvious answer for me is a pair of Grot Bommerz. I do like the concept of these, though I am not a big fan of the actual models, but Orks is Orks, so they are next on my shopping list.

If I get those then I might get the Heavy Ork Bommerz as well. Continue reading “What next for Aeronautica Imperialis?”

Aquila Lander

This Aquila Lander was on display in the Forge World cabinets at GamesDay 2004.

It was a well painted model and has a lot of detail, look into the cockpit to see what I mean, click the image for a larger image.

Personally I was never a fan of the Aquila Lander it seemed just too different from other Imperial Navy aircraft or even Space Marine aircraft. I much prefer the Arvus Lighter even though it is unarmed!

More photographs of the Aquila Lander.

The new boxed set of Warhammer 40000 has some plastic scenery of a crashed Imperial Flyer.

Forgeworld have realised a resin version of the “complete” un-crashed flyer.

It looks okay from this angle, but personally I am not a fan of it.
