Seems as if AdMech are the next codex after Drukhari - is that new artwork?

I have to say, I am a very big fan of that cover art. Anyone else feel the same?

That is some of the best artwork 40k has seen in a while!

That techpriest is a genuine McHuge Man. He needs to become a model

That has to be a new model, right? I can't imagine the cover for the codex would feature a non-existant kit.

Could those be the rumoured Haephestons on the left of the big lady (legit look at those arms)?

That’s not all – if you’ve ever wanted your Tech-Priests to rummage around inside other factions’ technology and create strange new artefacts, you’ll want to take your Adeptus Mechanicus force on Crusade. Keep an eye on Warhammer Community to find out more about that in April.


Late April / early May release for AdMech then, by the looks of it?

There have been lots of things on covers that never came out as models, so I don't have any hope for this.

Next codex will be AdMech, Sisters, Orks. I think they are doing these in sets of three. (e.g. Dark Angels, Drukhari and Death Guard).

The new Skitarii marshal is on the left of the cover. Behind him are skitarii with spears. Don't think I've seen that before.

Cawl has different exo-suits in his latest book, this may be one of them.

Forgeworld hoplites or whatever.

Admech being next is a surprise, let's see if they get boosted further.

Except for the Marshal and 2 Vanguards, nothing has models so far. Not the spear priests on the left, not the big techpriest, not the scribes around.

 

But that is good in this case, because the artwork is not limited to what we have already seen a thousand times. This is awesome, this is conversion inspiration.

That was my first thought as well, but tge hoplites also have shields which these do not. Skitarii spearmen would be an unexpected surprise, I wonder if it’ll pan out.

Sweet googly-moogly - I've been really unimpressed by the codex covers this cycle, but that's just magnificent. 


Therefore, I conclude, Valve should announce Half Life 2: Episode 3.

This cover seems to focus much more on the Cult Mechanicum aspect and not the Skitarii aspect we've seen over the last few releases. If those spear dudes pan out I'll be pretty excited

+1 to all the posters above. Amazing artwork!
I might just buy the book for the art and I don’t even own a single admech miniature.

The teaser video has a binary code next to the codex. Translated into ASCII it says "April".
