Default Stuff for Codex: Orbital Assault (code name)

Straight from a GW manager:
next year we will be getting:
drop pods
a flier with wings for guard
possible a stompa or bommber (its in marketing division right now)
Eldar ships ( ??? )
flying hive tyrant
a small cudda for tau (only hinted)
a new model for necrons ( ??? )
This is the abbreviated words from my local gw mana.. I mean friend

Small Cudda?

Is that some sort of Tau delicacy or something?

I had no clue at first, too. (And quite possibly still don't )

I think that might be an abbreviation for the Barracuda.

I hope they bring out a Necron flier, and drop pods would by nice.

I knew about plastic drop pods ages ago... we where told it was coming when they where put in the space marine codex. NOTHING in ANY codex is unavailable in some form from GW (not forgeworld) so we knew GW where making one... It is supposed to be one box to make marine and chaos ones but I haven't read the Chaos codex so don't know if they are in it. The fliers are part of the appocalypse not a new book. They want aerial combat in Apoc but at the mo you may see one flier in a game.

There is some probability to see plastic Storm Troopers? Maybe in the next year?

Ooo, Eldar flyers

Also, I think it wouldn't be a Barracuda, as he said small... So I think Cudda is a Cuttlefish. Sounds like fun.

Wow, I had my reservations about the validity of this expansion but it appears I was mistaken.

Nice little bit of info on it here.

"Cudda" was a spelling error. And the barracuda is small, it's slightly larger than a devilfish...wouldn't be impossible to turn into a plastic kit.

But I have a real one. ;D

Necrons do not use flyers. They don't have any ordnance on their ships either. First, its cool that way, second, if they did get a flyer, it could only move if you said "By your command" afterwards
