It'll probably be Ad Mech or Daemons. I can't see Knights on either side getting a new model, although I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate some sort of armour for the Chaos War Dogs and Tyrant.


I think it will just be adtech, especially since they have teased models that havent been released and demons have had a slew of newer releases already.

I know, what a bummer.

The new AdMech units we’ve seen are for Engine War (cyberdog cavalry, flying Skitarii, the flyer).

I'd expect the Doggo Riders to be FA and the Flying Sicarians to be Elite.

My only hope for the book is that they throw a bone to Imperium-aligned knight houses.But with the mechaniucum being there too i don't really expect it to happen

No comments on this new story teasing dark mechanicus yet? I’m really curious what’s going to be in this thing, I don’t think we’ve had other stories teasing new factions.

Honestly, a big issue with Dark Mech in this story is that they're already involved in so much crazy insane daemon tech that it's hard for anything new to really raise eyebrows, as compared to the Mechanicus one. Based on the ending, it's a Chaos Knight thing anyway, as House Lucaris is a Chaos Knight House.

Some new models for the Dark Mechanicus would be nice.

New rules/models for Dark Mechanicus or not, that was the best piece of short fluff I’ve read in quite some time. Really unsettled me reading it.

Definitely just about Chaos Knights. The existence of the Dark Mechanicum is nothing new in the fluff, and it doesn't suggest traitor Skitarii or anything.

I'd love if we got an upgrade sprue for the mechanicus to make more Dark Mech I'd probably but a few just to differentiate between my vanguard and rangers. Though that's mostly because I hold them all minus my Alphas.

I'd kill for a proper Dark Mechanicum army. Barring that, I'll be happy with some Dark Mech feel to Chaos Knights and I'm really looking forward to what we get in Engine War.

I'd like to see a full fledged campaign of Ad. Mech and Imperial Knights against Dark Mech and Chaos Knights. Like the FW treatment. Then again, I'm obsessed with Chaos Knights so... :D

There were the rumours from the chap who was spot on about GAMA who said Lost and Damned/Exodites/Dark Mechanicum were coming as AoS-esq 'mini-new army releases'.

Looks to me like it's just a story for the Chaos Knight.

They even name the House and everything, Maybe some kind of named Daemon Knight or something.

 

Meanwhile though, this was released (source):

Based on the ending, it's a Chaos Knight thing anyway, as House Lucaris is a Chaos Knight House.

Indeed. If anything, I found the description of the Dark Mechanicus in this story rather mild.  In fact, if not for the reference to dark symbols and optics aligned like an eight-pointed star, The (admittedly only two) Dark Mechanicus characters seemed much like regular Mechanicus adepts dabbling in something they really should not.

 

Other descriptions of the Dark Mechanicus tend to portray them much more vile and warped.


Edited by Quantum, 17 March 2020 - 08:50 AM.

"The Nova Terra Interregnum has been remembered unfairly by those few who remember it at all. True, many malcontents, provocateurs and petty lordlings flocked to its banner when it seceded. But its attempts to contain the aggressive expansion of the Ecclesiarchy were born from an honest desire to uphold those values at the hart of the Great Crusade. It is ironic that the last gasp of the Emperor's true vision was finally throttled at the hands of those who fought in His divine name, on the planet that once reminded our Lord of 'Urf, long ago...'"

I really like that image. It looks more detailed and more like older GW art. A lot of the art in the Admech books has been fairly quickly drawn digital paintings. While I'm sure this is digitally produced it just strikes me as better quality compared to a lot of the recent Mechanicus art.

 

I'm also happy to see more cattle prod action! biggrin.png

I would think each HelForge would be unique in both it's operation and level of corruption, much like the various Forge Worlds are unique in their own way. There would obviously be much less in the way of guidelines for Chaos Mechanicum, so you could have Forges that are only mildly tainted to full blown Daemon Worlds. Not really seeing the issue here...

I would call it an issue; it just that I after imagining far worse atrocities of the Dark Mechanicus, the horror aspect of this particular story was a bit mild.

Huh? Besides the two chaos guards, all the characters are literally traced from models, down to tiniest detail and limb pose, background has little detail clashing hard with bat man in front in style, composition is off, I'd feel cheated if I saw this in print in any GW book. Not to say it's bad art, but it looks below average even for fan art, and I can't recall any GW art piece being quite this bad. It honestly looks like speed sketch with only top portion being anywhere near close to the finish, and would look better with heavy cropping to bring it back to focus, IMO.

That 'kid-sized shovel' is correctly sized for an entrenching tool, looks like.  No mistake there.

A new story today on Warhammer Community. Looks like despite lacking physical releases we may see the books continue to be released digitally (like with Saga of the Beast, though that may prove to be an exception and not the rule).
