Building on their array of specialist games (for want of a better phrase), Games Workshop has been showing off the newest high-flying addition to the library, Aeronautica Imperialis.

Aeronautica Imperialis Wings Of Vengeance - Games Workshop

Whilst not a new entry into the Games Workshop library, as this is a revamp of an older title by Forge World, this does give new gamers a different glimpse of the Warhammer 40,000 world. You will become pilots for either the Imperium in their Thunderbolts or the great Orkish horde in their Dakkajets. Presented in a much smaller scale than you're probably used to seeing for Warhammer 40,000 you will be battling it out across a hex-based game space.

The miniatures for the game are multi-part plastic flyers, each of which are highly detailed. You know that folks are going to go above and beyond with these miniatures, painting them up to suit specific sectors of the Imperial armed forces and of course plenty of personalisation too.

This isn't going to be a flash-in-the-pan game either. The core box will offer up the forces of the Imperium and Orks but there will be plenty of expansions coming your way which will build on these forces and also throw new ones into the mix too.

Whilst this doesn't particular spark any need to instantly pre-order from me I can imagine a lot of fans of the old game are going to be jumping on this. There are no doubt fond memories of playing this game back in the day and it will be good to see just how much of that classic has been transported over into the new board-based version.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
