Interesting that they shopped out the left side of the pic but not the right. I'm guessing that's deliberate. It probably shows something more of what the vehicle is like- a gun housing perhaps?

 

The hatch on the Dunecrawler is on top of a half round "bulge" from the side of the hull. As another AdMech vehicle they are probaly following that bit of design language.

I expect that’s Mechanicus, the styling is spot on, hopefully it’s a long awaited Transport and/or Flyer as those are niches logically needing filling (sure Skitarii can walk for months but I doubt the Arch-Magos would waste that much reading time).

Hatch for a plastic Thunderhawk manned by a Zoat and a Squat and stop of which is mounted Omegon pretending he is Lion El'Jonson.

That was easy.

For a bit of extra knowledge, the cross shape is pretty similar to the cross of Saint James the Greater (or Santiago), one of the apostles, who is a major figure in Spain. I thought it was worth mentioning and might help people to distinguish it from the Fleur de Lis :D.

Yeah, if the Scions have it too, then it actually could be Sisters... if GW sees that shape as being a part of the Imperium's broad design language.

I suspect that it being something related to Sisters is being too optimistic. Their line is still in the digital creation stage and being showcased quite a bit at that stage. This is a painted model that's much closer to production. We all know sisters will ave their moment, but I think this is some else. Exactly what is hard to say since it could fit into a few different Imperial niches.

In a vox cast podcasts one of the guests said that new stuff hitting the shelfs is 5 years in production.
So for example the new csm range possibly started out in development in 2014. If 2019 is the year of the new plastic sisters I would suspect them to be past the digital stage. This could simply be only what they are willing to share at the moment.

Ah, I concede that point and withdraw the degree of my Mechanicus certainty. After that evidence it clearly could be Scion, Sororitas or Mechanicus. Though as Sororitas previews are being shared in their own separate manner I put greater weight on Scions and Mechanicus probability.

I think it's most likely going to be admec. I can see GW expending the admec line to a similar number of kits as the GSC have now, at least with some new vehicles and characters.
Like the GSC pre new codex the admec are a relatively recent range that feels a little incomplete and has a lot of room for designers to explore.
This would probably be whatever the campaign book to follow vigilus is, damocles gulf maybe to allow Tau and into the mix.

Scions I think are less likely as they are part of the imperial guard book, unless GW is going to expand them more as a stand alone faction.

Or as a completely off the wall guess GW may be going to renew the imperial guard range in the same way they are with CSM. A reboot would probably be closer to the current scion kit so this could be a hatch from an updated Leman Russ kit
