Hi there,
In this week’s newsletter we’re hot on the heels of the brand new Warhammer 40,000 rulebook with Imperial Armour Aeronautica, a book that covers our entire range of flyers and anti-aircraft units. We’ve also got a set of updates available to download that allow you to field all your Forge World models in the new edition – read on for more!

Imperial Armour Aeronautica
Imperial Armour AeronauticaA brand new Forge World supplement book for Warhammer 40,000, Imperial Armour Aeronautica, written by Neil Wylie, contains fully updated 6th Edition rules for 34 flyers and 13 anti-aircraft units fielded by the Imperial Navy, Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, Tyranids, Tau Empire, Necrons, Dark Eldar and Chaos. These include complete rules for two brand new aircraft: the Space Marine Storm Eagle Assault Gunship and the Imperial Navy Avenger Strike Fighter.

In addition to the vehicle data sheets this book also provides you with the wargear and special rules unique to the terrifying airborne war engines of the 41st Millennium. Alongside these is a new narrative campaign, the Scourging of Kerrack, which provides six new missions specifically designed to incorporate aerial combat into your games of Warhammer 40,000 and Apocalypse, including detailed rules for developing Ace pilots over the course of the campaign. Also included is an Apocalypse rules appendix, updated for the 6th edition of Warhammer 40,000.

This 112-page, full colour, hardback book is lavishly illustrated with photographs and line drawings as well as campaign maps, and it is an indispensible reference for our full range of flyers and anti-aircraft units. Imperial Armour Aeronautica is available to pre-order now for despatch from 27th July.

Forge World 6th Edition Rules Updates
The Imperial Armour team have been hard at work over the past week, compiling a set of PDF updates that allow our full range of models to be used in games of 6th edition Warhammer 40,000.

Games Day Spain
Thanks to everyone who came to see us in Barcelona last weekend for Games Day Spain. We were especially appreciative of the British weather laid on to make us feel at home, and Mark Bedford had a fiendishly difficult time picking a winner for the Forge World Best in Show trophy. Eventually he chose Michel Adinarayanin’s fantastic Contemptor vs Decimator diorama. Warhammer Forge were represented in the prestigious Slayer Sword winner as well – as you can see here, Pablo López’s fantastic Marienburg Land Ship and Savage Orc Diorama was a worthy winner.
