    This should be interesting. I’m really looking forward to see how Death From the Skies affects the overall gameplay.

    Reece, why not swap out the Librarian for Pedro in that list to get Objsec for all those Sternguards? It doesn’t look like you would miss the thunderfire that much so it should be failry easy to include him.

      He has to be in the same Detachment =( Kind of stinks. Otherwise, i would do that 100%

    Reece! Why aren’t you using the new super fighter with all the pew pew pew?! I’m a sad gretchin, because of that. Any who, still looking forward to seeing what you guys do for this. I am still a large fan of rolling for each game of “ro-sham-bo” as a way to cut down time. Turns the dogfight phase from 4-5 minutes (with slow players) down to 1-2 minutes (depending).

      We don’t have the model yet in the studio, unfortunately. Its a great new kit though and a beast on the table.

    I found a video of T.O.s trying to figure out how to give Death From the Skies stats to flyers! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZzFZ5agce0&feature=youtu.be&t=11s

    I think you did the agility brake wrong. 180 degree turn is not possible, cause the first 90° has to happen before you move not after.

        A plane with vector dancer could make a brake turn and still use the rule, though.

    So.. i am guessing that taking a AA capable weapon, either vehicle, weapon upgrade or gun emplacement is not a luxury anymore.
