Adeptus Mechanicus Rumors / Warhammer Fantasy Rumors - Feb 2015

via a reader on Faeit 212
I look at your site a lot for rumors and i would also like to further confirm two current rumors.
It's really basic really but i was told recently that the skitarii are confirmed to be coming for 40k by a friend within GW itself.
Another point i would like to clarify for you is in terms of circle bases for fantasy. My source has always known that i have disliked the fantasy movement tray system; they've told me that fantasy is moving to a circular base system (although not sure how it will work) for all models, unit boxes will also contain less miniatures due to the new system.
They sounded pretty convincing and they have no reason to lie to me at all.
Hope this helps you in some way.

No, there is no mention of the Horus Heresy on the pages I have seen. These are codex entries, and the weapon section is titled -Armoury of the Forgeworlds- and then goes on to mention arc weapons, cognis weapons, eradication beamer, all like we talked about before. 
At the very top of the page, it starts off with the text- This section of Codex: Skitarii lists weapons and equipment used by the Skitarii, along with the rules for using them in your games of Warhammer 40,000-
There is no mention of Warhammer 30,000, the Great Crusade, or the Horus Heresy. Just 40k.

An Ad Mech playable army is being released by GW, not Forgeworld, 
in March. Now this timing could be off slightly, but its coming soon.

Ive seen the model so I thought I would chime in and describe the Dunecrawler. Sorry no pictures, it was not possible.
Its a walker with 4 armoured mechanical spider legs. The crew compartment is large metal box angled in the front. There is a small robotic arm in the front with tools and drills on the appendage. The visor for the drivers inside is a slit with optical lenses on the the left hand side of the opening. The Eradication Beamer is big, and looks like a giant conversion beamer, up top there is a gunner with a heavy stubber. I don't know the optional guns, but there are a couple. One that looks like a long barreled autocannon, but has some sort of array attached to it. None of the weapon options look like standard Imperial Weapons.
I also wanted to mention, that this is a Games Workshop release, not Forgeworld.

here are some rules for some of the guns for the ad mech. I dont recall seeing much more.
Cognis Weapons are normal weapons with the Cognis attached to it, like Cognis Lascannon. They simply use a BS 2 when firing snap shots because of an awakened machine spirit. 
Burst Pistol rules allow for 5 shots to be fired instead of just a single one. 
Galvanic Rifle looks like an ornate flintlock rifle with a canister on the side. R30", rapid fire, S4.

the plasma pistol described in your previous article is not an odd looking plasma pistol. its an arc pistol. arc weapons will be available for the skitarii in both pistol and rifle. the arc rifle is rapid fire with haywire. rifle and pistol both are s6 ap5.

Ive seen a walker bearing the ad mech symbols on it. The walker has a horizontal pilot hooked up to the machine with optical lenses for the pilots sight, and little mechanical grabbers that extend out from the pilots hands. There is a gunner on top in red robes and odd looking armor that reminds me of the tempestus armor except for larger eye lenses. The walker has sentinel legs, and the weapon up top is a ornate twin-linked lascannon.

Some insights into models that are coming down the track.
A:I have seen a plastic adeptus mechanicus sprue with servitors and human sized (i.e. not space marine) adepts. This definitely exists because I have seen it, so don't confuse it with my second point, although I don't know where it fits in with the release schedule. PENDING
B: for over a year I have been seeing various photos of greens, and CAD print outs - so not just concept sketches  - for imperial models that are familiar to the inquisition books. I have seen custodes-style models, arco-flaggelants, and ogryn-sized servitors (greens) - as well as a pretty big tank that looks like a cross between a land raider and a leman russ, in the style of the exorcist (CAD). PENDING
it seems to have become common knowledge in circles that A) the studio has definite plans for all this, and that B) there will be a 'new' race army book at some point at the end of this edition, similar to Dark Eldar. PENDING
'like Dark Eldar' I simply meant that, from the business's perspective, Dark Eldar were a new race when they got their latest codex and models. So 'new race' doesn't necessarily mean something like Tau in 2001, and I'm fully expecting it to be an imperial faction. PENDING
A and B may be unrelated. But, based on this, I am guessing that either that this is where sisters of battle will end up, or that their relaunch will be refocused on the weirder parts of the Imperium. I just want to make it clear though, I've never seen a new sisters of battle sculpt  PENDING

I have a little information for you on a new 40k Faction. Ive seen artwork of two soldiers in heavy but clunky grey body armour and helm, with one wielding an odd looking plasma pistol of sorts. The most striking thing about the image, with smoke and laser fire in the background, is the draping of the red cloth beneath the shoulder plating, and a symbol of the Adeptus Mechanicus on the main figures chest.
the big news is that a high quality image matching the EXACT description from the first half of the rumors is also doing the rounds and we can confirm its existence.  So at this point we feel comfortable putting forward the information for the community.

Admech are right around the corner.
Lords of War Gaming They are not actually Admech. That codex will release later. The books will be Skatarii and Cult Mechanicus.

via Lords of War Gaming:
- April/May
– It’s Admech, but there will be two codices.
- Tanks will be walkers.

Holy smokes! This is very exciting. In a way I'm really happy that they have their own vehicles, because if I get a Chimera or Leman Russ hull I have to desecrate it for the glory of chaos.


More cyborg bits are always welcome. This army is long past due.


Question, should I leave them Imperial looking, or go for a Dark Mechanicus look?

If I hadn't replaced my nipples with USB ports, they'd be hard right now!

If you could get a USB port to replace your nipple that would charge your cell phone via your own body, I think they would sell pretty damn well, sad as it sounds.


Probably a 0.25 essence cost, per nipple.
