With the new expansion for Mantic Games Kings of War: Armada, Seas Aflame, all fleets now have access to wizards and fliers. At this scale, the wizards are too tiny to be seen, but the flyers are available (well except for the Dwarfs - the feedback that Mantic got when they first revealed these has led them to redesign the flyers for Dwarfs (and I'm not sure when Kingdoms of Men fliers will be available - it isn't like these are made by warlord or anyone else since they are unique to Armada).
What are out are Orcs, Basileans and Empire of Dust. (Ok, Twilight Kin are also out now, and Elves are coming in October, but those are for two more posts).
First off, the packaging for these are large blister packs, so the fronts are nothing to look at but resin bits. The back of the packs actually have pictures.
It turns out I have had these for a few weeks - so in anticipation of Gencon, I actually managed to get them painted up. Now I won't be using them at Gencon (and I'm not even sure I'll have enough room to be bringing in all the extra ships I have that I am NOT using for the Learn to Play sessions (all of which have sold out!), but it gives some color pictures at least.
I thought I'd do a picture (this was before I had them painted) to compare the fliers to the 'normal' ships as well - so here they are next to a Large and Tiny orc ship.
The Empire of Dust has a Bone Dragon and a Scavenger Flock (I have already heard people talking about using these for Deadzone Murderbirds - however Mantic announced this past weekend that they would be doing new Murderbirds for Deadzone 3.
The scavenger flock was just slightly less straightforward to assemble - you have to make sure the bodies on one piece match up to the necks on the other.
The Basileans have a Sky Altar and a phoenix.
