Phantine Air Corp

Phantine Air Corp

The lack of open ground on Phantine meant that, when the time came for an Imperial Guard tithe, no ordinary regiments could be mustered. Imperial High Command made a special exception for the Phantine to be allowed to operate their own atmospheric fighter craft, despite the rule that no Imperial Guard regiment may provide its own air cover. The odd role of the Phantine means that they are not welcome among either regular Imperial Guard or Imperial Navyaviators, amongst whom they are forced to operate. However the Phantine has proven to be an extremely capable regiment and has begun to earn the grudging respect of navy fliers.
The Phantine Air Corps is formed up of Wings, which contain specific squadrons, usually all of one type of aircraft. Each individual squadron is made up of 12 aircraft. Squadrons are usually broken down further, into three formations of four fighters known for fighter patrols and the same again or two units of six for bomber sorties. These formations are called Flights.

Umbra Squadron

Absorbed whole from the Phantine PDF, Umbra Squadron switched from Lightning to Thunderbolt fighters at their mustering into the Guard. Their members wear quilted taupe flightsuits, red helmets and brown leather jackets. Their assigned model of Thunderbolt is pattern I-XXI XX Wing 'Umbra' Squadron

Umbra Squadron fought in the liberations of Urdesh Minor and Enothis, incurring heavy casualties in the latter conflict. They also scored one of the highest squadron kill tallies in the theatre, and Umbra 8 was responsible for downing a feared enemy ace, Khrel Kas Obarkon.

It includes new character models and rules and datasheets for both the special Orks character and the Space Wolves character. This is very limited and includes a campaign supplement and a mini 7th ed rulebook.

Death Skullz

For years I have been fighting the creative urge to do an Ork Army and finally I broke down. Some of you may remember about 2 years ago I started an Ork Bommer project, well one day at eh shop I was slaving away over it and a customer came in and dropped enough money to just walk out with my bommer in its current unfinished state. For years now I have been kicking myself for not finishing it so I decided to pick one up and it opened the Ork flood gates sort of speak. Hope you all enjoy as much as I do.
