I picked up a copy of Aeronautica Imperialis at games day UK, sadly by the time I'd found my way to the front of the Forgeworld scrum of death, ALLLLL Ork planes had sold out, leaving me grumpy and annoyed. cryork.gif

So what should I buy first and how many of them to make an Ork air fleet? If anything had been left I'd have grabbed it there and then, but now I have the chance to reflect and plan, in a very un-orky way, so can anyone help me sort out what I need to get first to play? Playing against panzee mainly, if that makes a difference.

Don't forget as an Ork you aren't restricted by the Forge World planes.
My fleet is entirely made up from cut'n'bashed plastic kits from the 1/350th Trumpeter range.
And I've converted quite a few Epic and AI players into doing the same! CoolOrkDark.gif

If you check out my Thread you'll see what I mean, and they look far more varied and unique than FW's models, even if FW are more detailed. (And about 10 times more expensive!!!)

I started with 4 Fightaz, 2 Fighta-Bommerz, and that was a pretty good start. My Air Waaagh! is now double that size, and if I wasn't working abroad for a year, I would have added a couple of the big Bommerz. The great thing about FBs is the firing backwards. If your opponent doesn't know about the grot in the back, or forgets, you can punish him with it. I beat my panzee opponent with that once, he tried to outmaneuvre me, picked the wrong planes to tail!
