On of the cool things about 40k is that you can pretty much do as you please. It can be a easy or as convoluted as you want.
The choice is yours.

There are actual rules for wargear in the Compendium and it looks to be about the same honestly (Grey Knights and Blood Angels still have to take their respective missile options, and Grey Knights still get Fortitude, ect).So are you meant to use the wargear in the errata or from your codex?
I paid £20 for this book and because of this I get cheaper wargear for my flier. I wonder if they will FAQ the BA and GK codex to lower the points costs to what's in the errata.
Points towards Forge World...No Eldar...

I think there's a lot of that in 40K though so I don't see why having a couple copies would be bonkers. Not to mention it has C:SM stuff in it... seems logical to have 20 copies on the shelf at all times right there.When you consider that it makes a lot of sense that it's direct only because it's not a mass appeal item.
Probably one reason I never did grab a Storm Eagle. Though I think also having to pay nearly $200, getting a book and a single model, and unlikely to buy many more had something to do with it . Though I think "op" is pretty relative. With this book the DA flyer is priced out of existence with the Talon sitting at 75 points less (oh, but with only 2 HP) and for a couple more you almost get a flying Landraider. Couldn't imagine buying the two pack and ever actually using them...would look nice on a shelf though.Points towards Forge World...
So if you buy a FW flier and download the errata and IA book with the rules you pay as much as the SM guys and get a flier, you probably wont be allowed to use anyway because everyone knows IA is "op".
Yeah, didn't notice the Talon only had 2 HP at first. The gap between it and the Raven is less by default but the disadvantage seems oddly larger. If the missiles were at least Str 8 I could maybe understand but at 6 you're mostly gambling for glances on a slightly more expensive target that can penetrate your armor as if it were glued on.Like I said, I think the Neph is still overpriced, but not really so much in comparison to the Talon. Where the price difference really shows is against the Heavier Flyers like the Storm Raven which has as much firepower, heavier armor, and is a transport.
Do you have any idea on the expense involved in having 20 copies "just there" at all times, in all shops, in all countries?I think there's a lot of that in 40K though so I don't see why having a couple copies would be bonkers.
