New Aeronautica Imperialis Figures Available to Order from Forge World

Take to the skies in two new ships for Aeronautica Imperialis from Forge World. Sure, they're maybe not quite as iconic as a Thunderhawk Gunship, but the Arvus Lighters and Vulture Gunships are important in their own way. Both of these kits are available to order now.

The Arvus Lighter is a workhorse of the Imperium. Transporting both vital cargo and critical personnel, even from orbit, they're small and fast enough to slip through war zones that would prove too difficult for larger, more cumbersome craft. While armoured, they are completely unarmed, relying on support from escort aircraft in active battles. Affectionately called “the hog” or “little pig”, this scout-class ship is a common sight on battlefields across the galaxy.

This finely detailed resin kit allows you to build two boxy Arvus Lighters for your games of Aeronautica Imperialis. Boasting a large transport capacity, this surprisingly zippy transport is vital to completing various scenarios that include depositing or picking things up from a landing zone.

The set includes:

- 2 resin Arvus Lighters supplied in 9 pieces each

- 2 Aeronautica Imperialis bases (each of which designates the model’s front, rear and side arcs, speed and altitude dials, as well as a clear stand to connect the aircraft to the base)

Squadrons of Valkyrie Assault Carriers are often supported by these heavily armed dedicated gunships. The Vulture sacrifices troop-carrying capacity in favor of a massive engine and souped-up power plant, delivering serious firepower via underslung hard points. When armed with a Punisher Cannon, they can unleash devastating fusillades to annihilate targets at medium range.

This finely detailed resin kit allows you to build two vicious Vulture Gunships for your games of Aeronautica Imperialis. Armed with a Heavy Bolter as standard, you can add a variety of extra weapons under the wings to match you preferred style of play. This versatile craft can also hover in place, providing a mobile weapons platform to defend an asset or flood a ground target with hot lead and deadly rockets.

The set includes:

- 2 resin Vulture Gunships supplied in 16 pieces each

- 2 Aeronautica Imperialis bases (each of which designates the model’s front, rear and side arcs, speed and altitude dials, as well as a clear stand to connect the aircraft to the base)
