Death From the Skies
Heya all and welcome back.
It seems that finally that ' (Fill in Season) of Flyers" is now back and official, though it does not go by that name anymore.
From Faeit 212
OK readers, its now official. I have the information for what will be in Death from the Skies and of course I am sharing all of it that I am allowed to. Here are the details.
No longer a rumor. Even I had concerns the image above was photoshop'd, but it is the real cover. There are no flyer releases listed out from what I have seen. Hopefully next month?
I also wonder which version of the Stormraven codex Space Marines and Black Templar will be able to use.

This is a rather interesting book if some of these were even true, as that would mean that there may be some alteration to the rules of some of the flyers we had known and love/hate. I for one am interested if Dark Eldar flyers would get the Vector Dancer rule, as that would be golden on all the Dark Eldar flyers. I mean, the flyers themselves are kinda alright but with Vector Dancer in the mix, the Dark Eldar aircrafts will be dogfighters extraordinaire and could even kill the Stormraven by vectoring behind it and shoot it down, especially with the Void Lance, as that is a guaranteed penetration on back armor and also at least it will force the Stormraven to jink.
