Looks interesting. Not sure if it's my type of aesthetics, but I can't argue that it isn't unique.

"We must thank the Emperor, I suppose, that it was Roboute Guilliman's gene-line that proved the most stable and prevalent. Had it been that of Russ or the Khan, for example, we would have found ourselves defended by feral savages barely distinguishable from our foes. At least the Ultramarines successors understand how to conduct war in a civilized fashion." - pg. 25, Codex Supplement: Ultramarines

That flier is AWESOME. I love it so much and the best thing is I know the AdMech player in my group will get one or two asap so I can see it on the board a lot. :D

There was an ancient helicopter-type Flyer which had a passing mention in one of the FW books (can't remember the name sadly). Looks like the Archeopter is based on that?

Also nice to finally get to see the SoB model even if I doubt we'll see it a lot on the board. T3 without character protection is just not going to work out even with a -1 to hit and a 4++.

That flyer is totally bananas. It's just so, so AdMech. Also, it solves at least two rumour engines.

As a Templars player, I'm very jealous of the amount of grimdark in The Triumph - it's pushing me to truescale Grimaldus and paint up some cenobytes.

I kept saying Ornithopter. Many expressed doubts. I kept saying Ornithopter. Many likely whispered suggestions that my cogitators were corroded. I kept saying Ornithopter.

I do not know if I influenced the outcome or just accurately predicted it. It matters not. All that matters is that the Omnissiah heard my fervent prayer for an Ornithopter and LO! BEHOLD! It is an Ornithopter! And it is MAGNIFICENT!

The Triumph looks great though to be honest there’s so much there that I think we’ll need a proper 360 to parse it.

Ornithopter’s wonderful too. Got that real Flash Gordon 50s sci-fi throwback feel which comes out in the AdMech. I think it answers maybe three rumour engines? Wing, the leg, the bomb rack.

No, I don't think that's the wing that people were insisting was Admech, which is a promising sign, as it suggests there may be more to come.

You’re right, the rumour engine one has a different arrangement. Looks smaller.

Quite possibly. I'm wondering if the rumour engine photo was one of the little "leg wings", though, which look a bit smaller.

That mechanicus flyer is awesome sauce. I’m quite the fan of all the mechanicus vehicles, just not a fan of the infantry.

Edit: aeronautics imperialis version of this and/or SM flyers would be enough for me to pull the pin and take up that game.

Edit 2: new flying stand is intriguing.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mine! I'll have the version with the fewest heavy stubbers, please! It looks like one version might have chin-mounted phosphor weapons? Seriously though I absolutely adore the design, it's absolute madness, but that's kinda the point!

 

The sister's diorama thingy looks amazing too, so much detail in there.

The ad mech flyer is bananas.

Also the flyer stand makes it look a lot smaller than other flyers. I wonder if it will be a squad option

Well the body is a lot smaller than most. It's piloted by a single Skitarii and the doors barely fit on the body lol

I don't see it. They aren't that similar. If anything the exhausts look like the jet exhausts on Space Marine backpacks.
