Skitarii transport, the prayers have been answered. I’d guess those two rumour engine images will be solved by this. So could be a hover transport!

Well I'd bet money the ominous Primaris transport from the rumour engine is the Skitarii transport. :P
Anyway I'm happy especially for you Iron Hands players. Finally a named character and he looks great too!

Skitarii Transport is great news.

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.

I am so happy that our nagging bears fruit. Sickly mechanical fruit filled with cogs and glowy bits, sure, but fruit nonetheless. I wonder whether it will continue the trend and be a walker or if it will be a hover transport? I'm worried it's going to look a bit goofy but I was skeptical about the Onager when it first came out and I think it's great now.

Admech transport is needed, sort of. I'm still not sure what I'd put in it, but I guess that's dependent on stats, carrying capacity and cost. Electropriests of plasma vanguards might be workable.

Love it all! Admech transport is needed, sort of. I'm still not sure what I'd put in it, but I guess that's dependent on stats, carrying capacity and cost. Electropriests of plasma vanguards might be workable.


Yeah, I’m thinking Electropriests and Vanguard. FW sales of the drill transport are about to fall off a cliff. I’m definitely buying 2 of the new thing without even seeing it! I bet it will come out with the separate release of the TP Maniplus in grey plastic (because screw red plastic).

They showed quite a lot considering it’s WHFest next Saturday, I’m quite surprised! Hopefully there’s some really juicy stuff next week!

Skirarii transport is great news, that will be the vehicle parts we have seen in the rumour engines them presumably.

Wonder if the skitarii transport will be a new 41k thing or inserted into lore so its usable in 30k and to give fw the window to use it as a base for future kits.

Anyone else get a chuckle that the reason for the Skitarii getting a transport boils down to "we'll stop asking if you just do it"?

I hope it's more than just a transport, though - a transport-tank-hover-IFV-thing like the Repulsor, and not just an AdMech Taurox/Rhino/etc.

"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

A Dunecrawler with a basket on the back perhaps?

I’m still hoping for a dual-build flyer-interceptor/transport kit, as that would sort out two gaps in the Mechanicus military forces at once.

The bits from rumour engine pics suggest a grav vehicle but i could still see an ornithopter (like the descriptions from dune that can fly with flapping wings or fixed wings and jets). But grav would still be good. I’m hyped!

"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...'"

So now that an AdMech transport is confirmed, it's very likely that these two belong to it, considering they share design elements with the Dunecrawler.

It’s not really a fleur de lys, and it’s present on the Onager and Taurox already.

It's on the Dunecrawler's legs and lid, as well as on the Ironstrider.
