First look at this picture to get you in the right frame of mind:



Then read this:

Common fighter/bomber features:
- Downward angling of the primary wings (about 30 I'd estimate)
- Canards are very slightly angled down, but near horizontal
- Engines are mounted in pods in the wings
- One weapon mounted centreline under the hull, and one in a pod in each wing

Hemlock:
- Has a single vertical stabiliser mounted on the centreline of the aircraft

Nightshade:
- Twin "vertical" stabilisers (they're actually about 30 from horizontal), one mounted on each engine pod.


And finally, another note regarding the big Eldar walker kit:
-it's officially "Wraithknight"

Hemlock and Nightshade fliers?

I've never heard of GW reusing names.... that's two different class names from Eldar's BFG fleet.

Perhaps those are working titles. But the Necron BFG range has Scythe Fighters. So for 40K they just specified what kind of Scythes they were. It sounds like a cool design for the Flyers. But Wraithknight doesn't sit right with me.

Thinking the recent round of DMCA letters and blog shutdowns might have had something to do with it and scareing people off.... Hopefully we'll start getting some in the next week or two.

Wraithknight honestly sounds wrong, considering that since the Dreadknight everyone's been bastardizing the name to represent a walker of that scale. Knights, I believe, were from Epic sacle, which makes them Titan levels. On the other hand, we already have Wraithlords and Wraithseers (FW), so Wraithknight's not impossible.

They were similar in size and power to the ork stomper, so if this is a large walker kit then it is in every way a GW "knight".

Just to share a thought, we are also expecting a re-release of apocalypse in the near future (months if you believe the rumours), the FOC for Eldar really has no space for another big heavy option - could we be looking at a superheavy released with Eldar? or some option to take it as either?

Maybe they will move the falcon to dedicated transport and can't remember if warwalkers are heavy or not but they should be fast so that would leave some space with only the fire prism and wraithlord and artillery guns in heavy along with dark reapers. So with the heavy walker that's 5 in heavy. If we get flyers I guess they would be fast attack

If i get the option to pack fast attack slots with that many heavy weapons I will be a happy player, but no currently they are in HS.

Fast ironically always seems to be a crappy zone for Eldar, I really hope that gets fixed.
