So now what’s next for Aeronautica Imperialis?

Back in July 2020 I wrote a speculative piece about future releases for Aeronautica Imperialis and some personal preferences for models. I had written the post after finishing painting my Valkyrie Assault Carriers which had been released alongside there Skies of Fire boxed set which contained miniatures for the Tau and the Astra Militarum.

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.

Since that article was published we have had some new releases for Aeronautica Imperialis from GW and resin models from Forge World.

Forge World released the Vulture Gunship and the Arvus Lighter in August 2020.

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?”

Ork Air Waaagh! ‘Eavy Bommerz

Next week we will see the release of the next expansion for Aeronautica Imperialis with the Ork Air Waaagh! ‘Eavy Bommerz.

You get two bommerz in the box. They look very similar to the previous Epic scale Eavy Bommerz.

As you can see they are very similar to the original Epic Ork ‘Eavy Bommerz from GamesDay 2007.

I really like the sound and look of the new game, but I realised I never finished my original blog post about it. I haven’t yet bought the rules, but may do so soon.

You can pre-order them from Games Workshop.

Forge World Newsletter #181

Nice new Epic Heavy Ork Bommerz…

As was indicated in an earlier Forge World newsletter Forge World are going to release an Epic Heavy Ork Bommer for Aeronautica Imperialis. There are three versions as well, and with interchangeable parts. Doesn’t quite look as I would have envisaged, but still nice.


Hi There,

Well our event season is in full swing and this weekend we’re off to Games Day Germany, but we haven’t neglected the rest of you as we have two fantastic releases to announce in the shape of the Malcador heavy tank with Battle Cannon, and not one, but three new glorious Ork Bommerz for Aeronautica Imperialis.

Malcador With Battle Cannon

The new Malcador with Battle cannon, designed by Daren Parrwood, offers another fantastic option for your Renegade or Imperial Guard forces. The tank features a modified upper hull with an unusual enclosed turret mounted cannon giving the Malcador a very unique and arcane feel compared to more conventionally designed Imperial tanks, and a real flavour of the Imperium’s ten-thousand year long history of war. The tank’s other armament, modified from the standard Malcador also includes a optional autocannons, lascannons or heavy bolters for the hull and sponson mounts. As a super-heavy tank, the Malcador will prove far more durable in open battle that the smaller Leman Russ, serving as a mobile fortress for your advance. The model is supplied with full weapon options and commander models for both Vraksian Renegade Militia and the Imperial Guard.

We hope to have experimental rules for the Malcador with Battle Cannon on our website soon..

The Malcador with Battle Cannon is available to pre-order for release commencing the 3rd of September. Were are also hoping to have a small number with us to sell at Games Day Germany, but this supply will be very limited, so get in early to avoid disappointment!

Aeronautica Imperials Ork Bommerz

Epic Heavy Ork Bommerz...

Also available to pre-order now are our new Ork Bommerz for Aeronautica Imperialis; there are in fact three of these beasts, and each is superbly detailed with no end of engines, guns, rockets and wacky Ork ‘tech’. The fact that all the component parts (noses, wings, fuselages, tails etc.) are all fully interchangeable between the models means if you buy multiple bommerz there’s loads of different cool combinations and looks you can achieve. We couldn’t resist going to town on this ourselves as you can see in our extensive (40+ picture) gallery here.

Designed by the inimitable Mr Parrwood, the Ork Bommerz are multi-purpose in true greenskin fashion, doubling up as transport craft (as stormboys can be pushed out of the back door just as easily as bombs!), and they can therefore fill a lot of different roles in your Games of Aeronautica Imperialis.

Basic experimental rules for the Bommer can be found Here. Full rules will appear in the forthcoming Aeronautical Imperialis Supplement.

Also available for pre-order is our new Ork Bomb & Rokkit pack for Aeronautica which you can use with any of your Ork planes. This allows you to load up your Bommerz with even more bombs!

You can view the components for the Ork Bommer, Blasta Bommer 1 and Blasta Bommer 2 and are all available to pre-order now for release week commencing the 3rd of September.
