Games Workshop’s Flyer-supplement for Warhammer 40K – Death From The Skies – is now available to pre-order as a digital download for the iPad. The release date is April 20th.
Death From The Skies is certainly one of the most controversial GW releases in recent months.
A large part of the controversy was grounded in the fact that the release was very limited, not available to many retailers and – despite all these constraints – considered (potentially) essential by many Warhammer 40K players, changing a few Warhammer 40K Codexes.
#1 – Death From The Skies Digital
Death From The Skies Digital
Well, here it is. As a digital download, Death From The Skies is now at least available to everyone (with an iPad).
Death from the Skiesis your guide to launching aerial might into the skies of the 41st Millennium.
This volume contains the rules for 11 flyers to use in your games of Warhammer 40,000, including units for use in Space Marines, Blood Angels, Black Templars, Grey Knights, Imperial Guard, Orks, Necrons and Dark Eldar armies.
There are extra rules for dogfights and fighter aces and four new Air War missions to add even more excitement to your tabletop battle for aerial supremacy
Also included is The Battle For Caradrim: your guide to a war that sees a White Scars Company take on a mighty Ork Waaagh and a terrifying Necron invasion, both on land and in the air.
The Digital edition of Death from the Skies also includes an interactive miniature gallery and quick-links for special rules and wargear. Plus, your copy will always be up-to-date with the latest FAQ’s and rules updates.
#2 – Death From The Skies : Do I Need That?
I had (yes, had… got rid of it) the physical copy of the old book. I wasn’t impressed with it.
Obviously, the digital edition isn’t the same product, not least because the new digital edition will be up-to-date with the latest rules and FAQ (will it include the new Tau Flyers?).
If you indulge yourself to the iPad-version of Death From The Skies, and it did indeed improve much over the dead-tree-edition, let me know!
