The Van Saar bounty hunter would be a Forge World resin mini I don't think they get anything in the rumour engine do they? 

 

Flying AdMech infantry would be cool :D

They have done but very rarely (I can only think of one for sure, Blood Bowl Goblins chainsaw, one of the earlier ones).

They do. Rarely, but they do.

 

Iirc, the last time they had one in the Rumour Engine was one of the Goblin Special Weapons for Blood Bowl?

While it definitely resembles the bounty hunter and I was originally thinking back to that very same piece of artwork, even in black and white, the painting style strikes me as more GW than FW. FW have a very distinct style of painting, with a lot more weathering, blending and irregularities, while this here resembles GW's clean edge highlighting style a lot more.

 

You know how the aesthetic for AdMech is based on old sci-fi with a dash of steampunk?

Admech ornithopters might just make me pick up a Knight and a little maniple of Skitari to escort it to sit alongside my Templars.

I think I'd rather see a battlefield role closer to Drukhari Scourges to assault marines. A flying melee unit would make justifying Ruststalkers even harder.

Since I'm pretty conviced it's AdMech until further notice, and apparently I have nothing better to do with my time, I put some colours on it. I think they fit quite nicely.

Not so sure about the bounty hunter. Did we ever get a rumour engine on anything from Forge World?

Doesn't rumour engine tend to be for plastic kits? Other than Kal the necromunda bounty hunters have been resin IIRC. So I agree probably something for the admech, unless spyrers are coming as a plastic set.

Combined with the Ad-Mech style gun, it's becoming increasingly probable that the Ad Mech are getting at least one new unit.

Do you think that rifle preview and these wings are connected or different possible ad mech units?

Could be either really (in addition to something else entirely), but I can easily imagine an Ornithopter pilot with a repeater style rifle holstered as a back up weapon or a winged infantry unit with the rifle holstered while they hold a grenade/pistol/melee weapon.

They gave a big honking clue in the description, "we partnered with the Ironweld Engineers". It's Aos.


The Lion strode through the Halls of Hell;
Across his path grim shadows fell
Of many a howling, nameless shape
Daemons with dripping jaws agape.
The darkness shuddered with scream and yell
When the Lion stalked through the Halls of Hell.

Not once on the Rumour Engine has the text amounted to anything.

Thankyou for doing that, it’s taken my certainty from 85% to 99.999% that it’s Mechanicus!

The apparent size from the paint marks is interesting. Much as I’ve been hoping for (and constantly talking about) an Ornithopter Intercepter/Fighter/Transport Flyer vehicle of significant size this does look like it may be infantry.

Another possibility though: the original Marine Ornithopter scratchbuild in RT was a single person small scout vehicle. This could end up being Sentinel-to-Land Speeder size.

At any rate it’s almost certainly Mechanicus so I’m buying it and as those wings are bat-like I’ll preorder it immediately and bump even more projects to later for it.

It's minor, but the tiny little spikes also align with those seen on the same-stock-as-Skitarii rumour.

The more I look at it the more convinced I am that it’s not normal jump infantry size but between sentinel and Dragoon size. The ball and socket limb component that has the cog shaped socket is I suspect similar in size to the small t-rex arms of Ironstriders
