I was looking at the Bell of Lost Souls and noted the new Imperial Guard vehicle, The Valkyrie. Apparently this gets "a new flying stand" and is a transport for Guardsmen who can paratroop out. From previous rumors about stats, this seems like much more than just a normal skimmer.
It's not too far fetched to finally incorporate flyers into regular Warhammer 40k either, albeit a little different rules from Apocalypse.
However, as nice as the Valkyrie is for IG, it's Dark Eldar who are all about the flyers and speed. If flyers are actually making an appearace, whose army is going to be getting the baddest flyers? Us.
Thoughts and reactions?
Well I am not about to do anything against the law, yet…………………. but if the paratroopers gain an ability like our Scaling nets that actually works in the game I can only hope that we leapfrog above that.
Maybe this is the reason that GW has held off releasing the new Dark Eldar Codex for so long, they just don’t know how much power to give it in comparison to what may be given out with other recent releases.
I am trying to be positive here folks!
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Well, we could certainly use a drop pod equivalent. I don't see the Raven or Razorwing making an appearance though.

As far as I've seen from the IG rumours, the Valk is just like a normal skimmer, except that the stormies can disembark at any point along the Valk's move. This may or may not follow rules for deep striking.
So, basically, they don't quite get the full effects of Scaling Nets, but neither do they get the CC disadvantage.
So, no, I doubt we'll see full flyer rules outside of Apocalypse/Forge World.

If IG are getting skimmers then you would except some new skimmer for us. I would like to see a new APC with armour 12 or 13 that doesn't tend to have weapons. That way without the weapons iot removes some weight than allowed for more armour and still allowed DE their speed etc.
But hoepfully we will get some new skimmers since DE are the main skimmer army along with eldar.
