THE BLACK WOLF MERCENARIES GET SOME AERIAL SUPPORT WITH THE MARCH RELEASE
March sees the release of the Aerial Battle Group for the Black Wolf Mercenaries, extending their reach to the skies and giving the rather small mercenary company the chance to play in some much larger games. Featuring a Sky Fortress, three Medium Airships and five Small Airships, this box is a fleet in itself - and combined with the Naval Battle Group I reckon it will make for a formidable force.
Armed with a mixture of rockets, gunnery and bombs, the new models fit with the standard playstyle of the Black Wolf Mercenaries, and hopefully the ships will be equipped with the fancy Generators and impressive defensive statistics that define their naval counterparts. Aesthetically they carry many of the design cues from the skimming Manticore-class Support Skimmers and Nemesis-class Battle Cruisers, but remind me of the Polish-Lithuanian skimmers as well. The Sky Fortress is particularly impressive - those massive engines, a huge flight deck and those spiralled rocket batteries I love so much from the naval vessels.
Certainly not the release I expected this month, I am nonetheless planning to pick up a box and build up my Black Company to a respectable points value!
