This is a better place than the tactics page, but these were my thoughts:

Judging from the size of the exhausts and vents on the rumour engine pic - we might be looking at a Vyper/Landspeeder Storm type transport, roughly the size of a onager turret.

Enough space for 5 at worst, 6 if we're lucky. So no room for Kataphrons, but potentially carrying a large gun.



There's no base there either, and it's a pic of a painted model - so either it's a skimmer on a flying base or bigger than the recent buggy sized things and more 'T-shaped' with the front bit ahead of those engine/fans extended out sideways as well as forward. Something three hatches wide with legs and not fitting on a Onager base though? Seems unlikely

I'd guess skimmer, but physically a smaller sized model than a Raider.

Hopefully they won't make the asinine decision to limit it to only SKITARII keyword models, because flippin 'eck do electropriests really cry out to have a transport.

I'm also thinking it will be a grav-type of veichle as it appear often in various types in the books( mechanicus lander ecc.)
That rumor engine also remind me of that old kibashed grav tank made from an empty can in an old white swarf.

But i hope i'm wrong, i'd love some walking transport ala desert scorpion/spider.

Im hoping for a few more models as well. Maybe an Admech 2.0 book? There is that alternate techpriest from Combat Arena as well.

Still, a transport is great to see.

There's no reason AdMech shouldn't have access to all that stuff.

There's also no reason AdMech shouldn't have better stuff.

Yes, but they won't get both, and personally I'd rather they got the fancy versions of the STC vehicles(plasma predators, volkite russes, iron fist rhinos etc) than more "unique" things.

I'm fully aware I'm pissing into the wind on that point, since most people seem to prefer newshiny and GW like to sell things.

The more I look at that image on the left, the more I think it’s been trimmed; I think the two hydraulic cylinders on the top might go onto a “knee” joint of a mechanical leg, where they project outside of the hull, but the legs have been trimmed off in the photo.

Nah, those are rudders/thrust vectoring paddles like on a hovercraft; you can see the engines directly forward of them.

Aye, the rumour engine images can be cropped.

Just look at the rumour engine picture of the Greater Possessed backpack:
Spoiler:

And compare it to the actual model:
Spoiler:

You can see the spikes from the head and pauldron are still in the rumour engine picture, but everything else has been photoshopped out. So just because the rumour engine picture doesn't appear to have legs, wheels or tracks, doesn't mean the actual model won't have them.

This could be true, but why have a piston as the connector on top? It's an odd design choice, originally I thought that those pistons drove a large rearward hatch that swung upward for troop deployments.

Yeah, it’s a weird design but it’s also not necessarily a piston, just an unarmoured strut that the painter made metallic for some reason. If you look where it connects to the hull, there’s a pin/rivet on either side of the socket and GW doesn’t usually do that for pistons.

It is also the exact same door on top of the Taurox, so don't be too sure I think it is very likely Ad Mech at this stage too, but it could still end up being Guard or even Sisters. That hatch basically just says "not Marines".

We went through this when the image first dropped.
It's definitely on par with what the Militarum Tempestus and the Taurox has, but it is not the Fleur de Lys that the Sisters would have.

That all said, it's more likely to be Mechanicus or Mechanicus related. It's present on the Onager, Ironstriders, the Kataphrons, and if you look at the Knights it is also present on them as well.

I don't think it is Sisters either, but the design is close enough to their aesthetic that it is a very outside possibility. On the other hand, it doesn't fit the established Marine aesthetic at all.

I still think it is most likely Ad Mech too, especially after the recent video teaser.
