Come see the new Stormhawk, and Wazbomb Blastajet unboxed in today’s first look review!

The new kits are finally here, and include the new upgrade sprues! Plus they include all the original parts for the original model(s) themselves.

Overall these are great new kits that may just end up finding their place in the post Death from the Skies flyer meta shortly.

Stormhawk Interceptor $55

Rated 4 MEOWS out of 5

An awesome sight, descending at incredible velocities from orbiting warships to engage and annihilate enemy craft, Stormhawk Interceptors are a stunning hymn to aerial superiority that the Space Marines sing with gusto. The frontal armour and huge firepower makes them excellent dogfighters, hurtling through the clouds to execute target after target in a blazing display of incendiary defiance.

Often seen in Vehemence Attack Patterns, Stormhawk squadrons and their golden haloes of flares discharged to gently dissuade incoming fire are a signal that whatever planet the skies are over, they belong to the Emperor.

Wazbom Blastajet $65

Rated 4 MEOWS out of 5

WazbomBlastajet09

There’s nothing more satisfying to an Ork than going fast. Well, except maybe lots of dakka. And explosions. and shouting “WAAAGH!” really, really loudly. What happens when you combine these loves into a single vehicle? The Wazbom Blastajet, that’s what! Madcap, improvised flying machines covered in improbable weaponry, these ferociously shooty jets are piloted by the maddest Mekboyz, flying in tight mob formations, competing to see who can blow stuff up in the most hilarious manner. The more hapless enemies dissolved by searing energies, teleported into oblivion or hurled through the skies to their messy demise the better – every kill means more scrap for the Mekboyz to gather up and nail to their Blastajet skwadrons!

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components needed to assemble one Wazbom Blastajet, that uniquely Orky screaming skyborne destroyer. Absolutely bristling with detailed weaponry, the jet can be armed with a twin-linked kustom mega-kannon (or optional tellyport mega-blasta), underslung smasha gun, stikkbomb flinga (or optional kustom force field) and gitbusta turret! Includes a flying stem and Citadel 120x92mm Oval base.

This plastic kit can also be assembled as a Dakkajet, Blitza-Bommer, Burna-Bommer, Wazbom Blastajet, and comes with a flying stem and Citadel 120mmx92mm Oval base.

Which do you think is better?
