I guess this will seal the deal for me and force me to go Admech this ETL. (besides my 2 imperial knights i aquired recently)

Hopefully they also finally release rules for the Mechanicum range in 40K! If the main studio are doing it, it makes sense that they bring it into line with a substantial changing of the mechanicus rules a transport will entail.

Just getting back into my Ad Mech, this is great news!

Hoping for something rounded that can transport the coggers and then support them once unloaded with Data-tethers and the like!

While this is great news indeed, FW already offer a very good transport option. Bring the full Mechanicum catalogue along please!

As much as I like the idea of a Skitarii transport ... I can see the AdMech player in my group just take another Onager or more Skitarii or both depending on the pointcost. sweat.gif

The best use would probably get Electropriests out of it which would be awesome since I love the models and the fluff and it's a shame that you see them so rarely on the board.

Well, I'd argue that you rarely see them on the table since the actual models are pretty expensive and they're, let's say divisive, in aesthetic. The rules for them aren't perhaps the greatest but they're certainly not bad.

If the transport ends up being a M12-14" skimmer with a transport capacity of at least 12 then I can see some real use for it. Both plasma vanguard squads and electropriests. Unfortunately it still wouldn't truly help the ruststalkers still, but they could become useable enough for friendly games then.

Considering our infantry is still on the squishy side, any transport would be better than footslogging. If our transport is the rumor engine vehicle, then FLY would be possible, which would be great considering our lack of mobility.

 

As for the electro priests: So far, the video only mentioned skitarii, and electro priests are cult (not skitarii). Which makes sense, considering skitarii are the regular troops of a forgeworld. So don't be surprised if the circuitry wrestlers still only have access to termites.

I'm hoping that the transport will be an aircraft with a decent amount of firepower, maybe along the design lines of the repulsor or necron night scythe. If they did so, it would serve the dual function of transporting and providing the air support that admech are lacking currently.

Yeah I thought about that but considering that cult doesn't have infantry aside of Electropriests and HQs, and Skitarii don't have HQs I do believe they would just go for a general AdMech infantry keyword instead of Skitarii keyword.

Well the teaser would indicate more than just transports. Crossing my fingers for some forge world cross overs!

What part of the teaser indicates that?

 

"Your prayers to the Omnissiah will be answered soon, Adept." after the transport request video. Means we get the transport. Everyone wanted one for ages, and on events they confirmed that they got the message - everyone from design to rules to FW guy has heard these requests, probably way more than once.

 

"We’ve got even more previews on the way soon, with all sorts of awesome new stuff for you." at the end of the article. Means they show "all sorts" of stuff next weekend, but that (at least to me) does not indicate in any way what kind of stuff is coming, so not necessarily anything for our guys.

 

We'll see next weekend, until then everything else is pure speculation.

You’re own quote contradicts your doubt.

Particularly given that after addressing the AdMech Player, the article switched to directly addressing Iron Hands players and never switched back...

 

Yeah, "We've got even more previews on the way soon, with all sorts of awesome new stuff for you" was directed at everyone, including Age of Sigmar players. 


I wouldn't even gatekeep you.

Well i'm glad we're getting a TRANSPORT wub.gif  you know in fun fluffy games(prob not tournaments or cheese fest games) even rust stalkers and close range shooters like vanguard will benefit from getting up closer without being wiped to half their numbers...and i'm hoping there will be some form of plasma gun on top of said transport hopefully devil.gif

Take my money now!!....

Cheers, Mithril

Dude, same. I just want more models added to the admech range. Yeah, it'd be great if it actually turns out to be good but new models means fewer duplicates in pure admech games, so as long as it looks good (which most of the lineup does I think) then I'll buy at least one.

Considering what we've seen, if the engine is true I think you're right and that's very exciting.

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.
