Aeronautica Imperialis was a wargame made by Forge World focusing on the aircraft of the factions of Warhammer 40, It's in the same 6mm scale as Epic 40, in fact, Forge World sold Aeronautica Imperialis products in the same section of their website as their Epic 40, models , though it focused almost entirely on aircraft and anti-air defenses.
The relaunch is upon us! And by the Emperor do these tiny planes look amazing. Currently, there are two factions available: Ork Air Waaagh! Both factions are represented in the new starter box, Wings of Vengeance. Dakkajets and two Ork Air Waaagh! Fighta Bommers. There is a second starting box coming in titled "Skies of Fire", focusing on the conflict between the Imperial Navy and the T'au Air Caste, bringing six new aircrafts to the game as well as introducing the T'au faction.
Just like Wings of Vengence it includes ten miniatures, evenly split between the two factions. More factions can be expected, the T'au has been announced for a Taros campaign and even more of the Imperial Navy the game is called Aeronautica Imperialis after all with the addition of Lightnings and Valkyries.

Boys before Toys is apparently true for Orks in every GW game, so bring the hordes and laugh as your opponent literally has too many targets to pick from and drowns in a sea of green. The Imperials are the kings of medium range, dropping a surprising amount of hard hitting dakka. If you can keep your opponents in the sweet spot you'll be able to fuel the golden throne with their sweet, sweet tears. Namespaces Page Discussion. More More. Page actions Read Edit History.
