Yes - they can be useful when handled with care.
Nah - fluffy but useless in WH armies.
Eeeeee... they look nice!
So here I am, with 3 Exorcists, 3 PEs, 3 Rhinos, full detachment of IG (2 AF in Chimeras plus Russ (Vanquisher option), plenty of SOBs, 2 Assassins, 2 Special Characters, looking at those cool FW Valkyrie/Vulture models... (It is an addiction I tell ya)!
I know that stuff that comes from FW is either overpowered or not worth the points (depending on which end of the table you are sitting). However, the models do look sweet and either dropping ISTs into the building from the Valkyrie (preferably to take the objective in the very last turn) or doing a tank-run with the Vulture seems to be pretty sweet.
Here comes the invitation to the discussion:
- Are those models worth the pts and $$?
- Are they suitable to fill any of the “holes” in our armies?
- And how exactly does rappelling, fast-rope-sliding work as far as deploying troopers from the Valkyrie?

you're assuming someone has played with these or read up on the rules before. I know most of the Forgeworld stuff looks sweet, but a lot of it is too huge to fit on the table (referring to the vehicles and such) of a standard game. Also, due to the cost, there are probably very few of us who have seen any of the bigger forgeworld stuff in person, much less who have actual game-experience with their models and rules.
I read a White Dwarf battle report (#301 Austrailia/New Zealand) with an Imperial guard army trying to rescue a command unit that was about to be over-run by Speed Freak Orcs, the Imperial guard luckily had a Valkyrie and a Vulture. Unfortunatly the Vulture had horrible luck with its shooting and the Valkyrie was destroyed trying to evac the command squad.
Overall I think they didn't make a huge impact on the game but it made it alot more interesting and added a new dimension to the game.
I didn't want to start a new thread and this one was stiil in the first page... With the new rules that will come with the Apocalyspe codex, how many will now consider using the Valkyrie? Also, apart from having an IG army with WH allies, how can we have a Vulture? Is it available to a pure WH army?
Wooo... FW... Flyers... Wooo... droooool....
I will so get (at least) one of them. As I've understood both Valkyrians and Vultures are available for the IG and the =][=. So as a WH player one should be allowed to take one of them. What I've seen of the Vulture and the Valkyrian, they have been pretty balanced not affecting the game too much (as any other unit). If you don't want to spend lots and lots of money on FW models it should be possible to make Arvus Lighters out of a Rhino and plastic card
