Hey man, there's still time for a terror-dactyl model : P

On a more serious note, I do like the not-pod-racers. They give a unique ascetic to the Sorylian flyers while staying with the extreme claustrophobia effect of the other Sorylian ground designs.

Yes indeed: they also kind of mirror their FSA Gunship counterparts, which I also like.

 

Oh, and I wouldn't really be phased by any incoming Pterodactyl models...

It could have been worse, after the Leviathan (which I love by the way), I was convinced the Sorylians were going to end up with Pterodactyl-type fliers  ;)

I on the other hand am holding out for an alternate Leviathan Helix.  I'd prefer a Giant Walker but would settle for Mecha-Godzilla.

 

I'm hoping the next Sorylian Aerial Helix will have troop carrying capacity and big anti-personal weapons to be used like Sci FI Huey Helicopters.  I'm assuming the helix to be released this month will be similar to A10 Warthogs in function.  But could be completely surprised.

But dragonflies are deadly hunters!

A suitable mighty beast of the skies for the Relthoza

 

Would you prefer majestic moths instead?

I think wasps would have been a better theme.....or take a look at their FSA ships. Something more inspired and less gimmick. 

 

Take a look at the new aerial helix. MUCH MUCH better.

I think its because if you look at it quickly it doesnt look like a peice of tech, it just looks like a different kind of bug. Which would be fine, but relthozan fluff has always steered away from the mindless insects IN SPAAAAAACE trope, so having different bugs for different jobs seems too much like a 'bioengineered swarm' like in that other game.

As model, and as a peice of tech it looks cool. My beef is with the interceptor drones, i dont think they look right, but part of that comes from the human perception that everything needs a front and a back so weird little winged saucers looks a bit un aircraft like.

I think the new Ground attack Helixs have gone a good way to start to move factions away from each thematically. Flying levi, Air transport, standard Ground attack types. What other specialist roles do you want to see filled.

I'll start

Combat range arty ( indirect fire & spotters )

Anti tank infantry ( Din specialist maybe )

Cyberwarfare Levi

I expect we'll see the greatest specialization in the support Helixes. They would allow an army to maybe double up on something their supposedly good at or counter a general weakness.

I do hope Sorylians get some type of indirect fire unit using spotters; less devastating than normal artillery in exchange for being a main ordinance attack.

I could see Relthoza getting even more infantry.

Dindrenzi getting another tank unit with rail guns.

Terrans getting some type of mobile shield generator

The others I'm not as sure what would fit them thematically.

Directorate are probably going to get something artillery related as well, since they got some super nasty arty, 5d6 terror scatter barrage on an initial micro of 4.  Currently with the ground attack helices coming that would be the only artillery available currently for the Directorate, so I predict the support helix will have it as well.
