I'm really interested in UR025. "Ur" as a prefix means "primitive; original; earliest", which I can't imagine is a mistake. I'm guessing he's an ancient Man of Iron style AI. Not necessarily a Man of Iron, but probably some sort of human created AI.

It is an intriguing idea. I can't imagine the AI wars as being black and white. I can imagine many AI's siding with the humans. Same with Chaos, some would look at it and see its corrupting influence and turn away. It is feasible for a Man of Iron to go into hibernation and then try to pass itself off as an AdMech construct in a distant outpost with no imperial control.

"UR" can also just be a designator.

I'd laugh like a drain if, in the envelope, UR-025 takes off his helm to reveal a head and says "I am Vulcan."

I'd laugh even harder if he takes off his helm to reveal nothing and says "I am Ferrus."

Don't believe the liars! I'm Alpharius!

Still very excited for this. One of the things I really like that the heroes don't include Space Marines; I know GW did that with Rogue Trader as well, but this is the first foot forward of a product line and the only Space Marines are baddies. I'm sure later expansions will include them, because they are the poster-boys, but it's still nice to see. It should also be noted that my favorite armies are Marines, but I think this is going to show a lot more breadth of the 40k background.

Come on Nov. 23rd!

Or more modern - Ad Mech still mess with things they shouldn't.

Someone mentioned the Hand of Night - according to Ghost Warrior, the Ynnari obtained it and have given it to Eldread to potetially pass to RG.

Yeah, it's eerie. Forgebane, Rogue Trader, now Blackstone Fortress - even a year ago it would have been inconceivable to have one of these big boxes without Marines. Hope it lasts. GW seems to have finally found an interest in showing the broader setting and (re-)introducing more obscure parts.

We'll even get plastic Sisters (Emperor willing! )

Even if I don't like that all of these guys are named, that's quite an array of heroes in Blackstone Fortress.

Looks like the set comes with bare basic slot bases. So the eavy metal team outdid themselves pulling off these painted bases on the studio models. To get them to look like that I imagine having to fill the gaps, file smooth and hopefully whtv does a guide on how to base models to match these tiles. In fact the more painting guides they do for this the better.

Seams more like 'eavy metal got rid of the slots entirely instead of cleaning them up for a smooth finish - at least some bases show signs unusual to the usage of slots and the man of iron has Blutac under his right foot - something you wouldn't need with slots.

Oh, and:

But I have 1 question: what is Robotica Imperialis ?
