I wouldn't bet on that. If FW rules were a valid solution to this problem, then the problem is already solved by the drill - which, despite its hefty price tag, is actually the cheapest of the Mechanicum transports.

 

And besides, people have been asking for a transport since literally the moment the faction was released. It's not like they haven't had enough time to do the work.

Any of the cool FW AdMech transports not given 40k rules yet?

No mech units except for the secutarii and termites have 40k rules I believe.
I'll take a bet that it'll be rules for FW stuff then.

Yes please. That's even better!

This. As I've said in the AdMech subforum - GW knows we want a transport. On the last event I attended, from design to rules to FW guys, everyone has heard it waaaaay more than once. And that we will shower FW in money on the very second we get 40k rules for the mechanicum stuff.

 

Still, it's been several years since the first intended release date of Cyraxus. I won't hold my breath for FW rules, but I'm glad GW steps up and gets things done.

I don't Hate FW ...BUT i'm not their biggest fan either dry.png for me (considering i live in Australia) it's too expensive and the work effort to make it look good -clean up,damage, warpage etc etc i totally don't think it's worth the effort anymore with the new tech that's available from GW now...  FW product used to be the premier aftermarket GW product.. not anymore.(my opinion)

 

I would  much prefer that it is a new Plastic transport that's readily available to me at my Local GW and isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg and i don't have to spend hours Fixing making it look like whats on the box...

But have they had a designer go "yeah, I feel like making an AdMech toy" yet? Because remember, GW does this stuff bass ackwards.

On the left it looks like the binoculars on top of the hatch of our Dunecraweler.

I fear this admech transport will suffer the same fate as the repulsor because of that that turret, aka the "Bradley effect". One vehicle trying to cover multiple duties and failing at most of them.

But the Repulsor actually fullfills his duties quite well. It's just a pain in the ass to roll all the different weapon profiles. :P

So the Skitarii transport is a hovercraft!

It won’t have the same problem as the repulsor as we have Onagers.

How do we know that it's hover?

Some of the previous rumour engines seem to indicate it. Also, look at the silhouette, it really looks like a hovering vehicle. I guess we'll know for sure soon enough

The rumour engine ruddered fan plus the air skirt on that silhouette.

I've adjusted this topic to cover the tank shown in silhouette. All of the replies about the Contrast paints have been moved to the extant topic.

As covered here, we're trying to keep discussions about new products separated. Our basic practice is to keep these discussions going until they are debunked (if speculative/rumor) or when the product becomes available to hobbyists. Since products revealed at an event might become available at different times, segregating them into their own topics allows the discussions to have focus (staying clean and removing/reducing confusion) and to be closed at the appropriate time.

So any additional reveals from Warhammer Fest should be covered in their own topics.

The tank version is getting onager legs to make an AT-TE. The Landing Craft will be an adsecularis transport. This is gonna be a great release.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

When people were saying hovercraft, I was assuming hover as in anti-grav. I wasn't assuming literal hovercraft.

 

This is a pleasant surprise :)

Repulsor with a bigger gun... Zero surprise but not overly creative.
