Forge World Newsletter #310

Pravidelný Forge World Newsletter. Představuje se doplněk Imperial Avenger Strike Fighter a updaty Forge World pravidel pro 6. edici. Tešme se na další příliv resinového cracku.
Hi there,
We’ve got a little something from the Imperial Navy for you in this week’s newsletter, in the form of the fantastic new Avenger Strike Fighter, and we’ve also got a reminder about the events that we’ll be attending over the summer.

Imperial Avenger Strike Fighter
Imperial Avenger Strike FighterThe Avenger is a dedicated strike fighter, intended to conduct high-speed, low-level attacks on ground targets, with armoured vehicle formations and high-value strategic assets such as munitions dumps forming its principal prey. The Avenger Strike Fighter boasts firepower that exceeds most other Imperial aircraft of its size, and in particular its reputation as a tank-killer is due to the Avenger bolt cannon it carries.

The Avenger is an ancient design, believed to originate on Ancient Terra sometime during the Age of Strife. It was adopted by forces loyal to the Divine Saint Sebastian Thor during the bloody wars of faith now called the Age of Apostasy. Its effectiveness is such that it is now a staple of any Imperial Navy air support mission, holding a glamour of holy import in the wider Imperium. The Avenger is often specifically requested by the Adeptus Sororitas should they require close support in their purgations, whatever the truth of its providence.

The Avenger Strike Fighter is a finely-detailed multi-part resin kit designed by Daren Parrwood. The kit contains two crew figures and a fully detailed cockpit interior, and the two lascannons supplied with this kit can both be supplemented and replaced with other Forge World Imperial Navy weapons.
Full rules for the Avenger can be found in Imperial Armour Aeronautica, and the kit is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 27th July.

Forge World 6th Edition Rules Updates
The Imperial Armour team have been hard at work compiling a set of PDF updates that allow our full range of models to be used in games of 6th edition Warhammer 40,000 alongside the relevant Imperial Armour book. We are amending and adding to these updates regularly, and they can be found on our Downloads page.
