At the risk of getting the cr@p kicked out of me ….. after the whole “summer of fliers” thing (with stickmonkey)
I have heard scraps that suggest there may well be something going on with ‘fliers’.
I have heard some snippets about:
a) A kit for a SM flier called a “Storm Hawk” (A “Storm Hawk Gunship”)
b) An Ork fighter kit (might have been a fighter/bomber?)
c) A ‘fliers’ supplement. (…as the first supplement to 6th Edition).
Now you have to remember I don’t know so much about 40K OR follow 40K rumorz.
So …. I don’t know:
a) If you have heard this already?
b) What I am talking about!
When I hear 40K stuff it really doesn’t mean that much to me?
So I tried the google on ‘Storm Hawk’ and found this:
All of the following is from: Tempus fugitives – Age of the Emporer
“The Storm Hawk is a smaller, more agile transport from the same design lineage as the Storm Bird. Used extensively for small operations, as the Heresy progressed much of the STC data to build the Storm Hawk was lost although the Mechanicum have kept copies so that if it were to fall completely out of service a variant could be reintroduced at a later date.”

The Summer of Flyers didn’t pan out, but blips of new flyers are popping back up on the rumor radar…
