You're absolutely right John. Those are some amazing "old school metal" sculpts :!:
It will be interesting to see what GW has in the "new plastic sisters" rumored to be arriving in 2017.

Or, the design team is :shock: :shock: getting bored :shock: :shock: with this style and this is the last hoorah for the formation era of 40k.

It cannot be possibly correct that the only airship in the Aeronautica formation is a Valkyrie.

If you inflate the Officer of the Fleet with helium he would be the other airship--he's the other unit in the faction.

WTF!!!! But now that I think about it, all of the other planes (e.g. Lightning and Avenger) are really Forgeworld. Anybody think that since the have the Imperial Navy designation, they could be included?

As much as I've been looking forward to this, I'm not going to be able to make it this year. I just found out that I have to fly to San Diego for work the next day, and I don't think I can make the drive home in time. :(

Oh man, that sucks dude. Could you fly out of Philly instead?

I believe we're also doing a more public Apoc day at our LGS in February. Joe would know the exact date.
