40k flyers to arrive in 2011

We know Jes mentioned the DE flyers as being "on the way" And we have had constant rumoring of the Storm Raven.

Well I did some work asking and this is what I have to report.

There are currently 7 flyers in development...some complete, some nearing completion.

Possibility for a summer "Flyer" White Dwarf to introduce them, including special rules.

Tau, Eldar/DE, Ork, SM, Nid, ???

It makes a lot of sense, but if each of these is roughly the size of a Valk set, that's a huge release.

It would give credence to prior rumors the Storm Raven would not be released with GK...assuming GK still make Q1.

It doesnt seem to invalidate anything Jes has said.

We have had a history of these "combined" releases occuring mid year for a few years.
Well there you have it folks, we may see a whole heap of flyers on the table by this time next year. It'll be interesting to see if they introduce new flyer rules to the main rules or whether they'll just count as skimmers like the Valk. Obviously this rumor needs to be taken with a huge grain of salt.

oh please god no, spearhead was one of the worst things GW has ever done, and they let one of the dumbest people do it, we don't need that to ever happen again.

at least the flyer rules will most likely just be a copy and paste of FW's flyer rules, so we know they work if they go with them...and not let johnson get his useless hands on them.

I look forward to seeing flyers arrive. Hopefully the Ravonwing and VoidRaven will be there. It would be nice if WD did do some sort of tie-in. Even better if they really expand on flyers with 6th edtion. Aah the possibilities.


oh and Spearhead wasn't that bad, it just could/should have been alot better

If they are releasing this many flyers in one go then it would almost definitely be a full scale rules suplements - spearhead was an epic fail of a trial, I can't see GW doing that again.

As for Eldar I do hope it is a Nightwing interceptor, just so I can fly round popping everyones nice new flyers :D
