Aeronautica Imperialis: Skies of Fire is boxed set for the miniatures tabletop game Aeronautica Imperialis (2019).[1]


The mining world of Taros is embroiled in a bitter, grinding war between the forces of the opportunistic T’au Empire and the jealous and vengeful Imperium of Man. While armies march across the surface of the embattled planet below, the skies are filled with aircraft locked in the dance of deadly dog fights. Will the T’au Air Caste declare air superiority, or will the dogged defense of the Imperial Navy prevail?[1]
