So something like Forge World's Archmagos Draykavac.

Draykavac is more like Judith from the SoB range, since it's a palaquin. I think the artwork is closer to that weird blobby Necromunda bountyhunter thing

I'm glad the faction has another HQ pick, especially since it's a Skitarii and not an AdMech priest. Just a nice bit of expanded lore that hopefully lets people broaden the scope of available army builds a bit more.
To me, with this character, I think the only thing we're missing is another type of robot. Something smaller and faster, but bigger than infantry. Something like the Vorax, really.


There are always the other four types of robots that went along with the Kastelan back in Rogue Trader (when it was the Castellan): Crusader, Colossus, Cataphract and Conqueror. Though presumably their weapon options would be 'Ad Mech-ed up.'

But yeah, I doubt we're getting anything else with this release.


To be fair I think the crusader is the Vorax now. Most of the others are variations of the same which the kastalens now are. A heavier loadout would be a nice choice, maybe based on the Conquerer chassis (or would that be Konquerer now?)

Cataphract look like they might be the inspiration for the Thanatar, but yeah the others do look like variants and FW has already gone and made other classes.

There’s also the mechanical ambulls that were released for Necromunda that could be drafted into Admech.

Ad mech HH range has some absolute awesome models.

Yes I bought them exactly for this reason and I originally planned to add them to my Kastelan squad but unfortunately they don't match up in size. So instead I'm thinking of turning them into servitors..

I don't know why people think the Skittari character will be anything more than a glorified Lt. I am pretty sure that is all the new skittari character will be. Excited to see what they do with the codex though, ad mech are a fun feeling faction to me so I like to know they have some variety and goodness available.

So, in theory, our book could be going up for preorder next week. But I’m guessing it’ll be a bit later in April, there’s other stuff they’ve shown off which can come sooner, right?

DE just came out, and then cursed city, followed by big elf release. I'm guessing there will be at least a week between that and Admech. Probably specialist game assortment. The war master titan would be a cool lead into admech thematically.

They did an article on the next Underworlds warband saying it's "available to preorder next month", so it's a fair bet that's shown this Sunday. They've released Titanicus stuff alongside Underworlds before, but I can't think of anything else likely to come out at the same time. Are there any new Blood Bowl teams still expected?

...or they could just drop the Warmaster alongside the AdMech book

Well, doesn't seem like there's much coming with AdMech. The Codex, some cards, perhaps dice and the new HQ, either single or as part of a new starter box.

Seems as good as any "filler" release between the more miniature heavy weeks for AoS Elves or Cursed City. Seems like Sisters will be the next 40K release with a more substantial miniature-release.

I would expect to see 'Broken Realms: Be'lakor' sometime in April due to April's collectible coin:

Warmaster looks like it will be paired with the loyalist legions book. Potentially the volkite weapons from fw as well.

I'm a bit curious how the skitarii squads will handle their special weapons. Still 2 plasma/ haywire/ arquebus at 5, and a third at 10, or limited more to match the box contents? Dark eldar showed both options. Warriors are still 1 special per 5, one heavy per 10, but wyches are one of each wych weapon per 10, can't take 3 of the same anymore.

Right behind you.

Wild guess is that they'll put the Arquebus into its own category and Plasma Calivers and Arc Rifles will become 1 per 5, with Arquebus as its own thing.

Hopefully though? Ranger exclusivity for Arquebus at least.

It's frankly anyone's guess how it will shake out.

I'm personally thinking that we'll get something kinda weird going on whether it be the Arquebus becoming Ranger only, 1:5 for special weapons, minimum squad sizes of 10, or some kind of 'balance' mechanism.

Both are assault weapons

Serberys units change from T3 W3 to T4 W2, with an extra attack
Lots of weapon changes

Definitely a hit to the Serberys, but Jezzail still sounds rubbish.
[edit]Hmm, two shots for the Jezzail - no, still rubbish. I think it needed higher damage to properly find a place.

You mean Deathwatch. Starting back in 7th edition. Of course, protests and warnings of DW players were outright ignored by "I got mine, why should I worry about this lame army, frak them" crowd and GW got message it's completely OK to start cutting options. After all they could do it in such comically stupid, ham handed way as Kelly and Cruddace butchered 7th edition DW and almost nobody cared. Hell, GW even found idiots defending destroying signature ability of a faction it had for decades (with insane non-arguments like 'look, this bolter doesn't have this tiny square button on the side, so it's totally OK to make it complete trash, what do you mean converting it takes seconds and your whole army has them, no rules for you') making them care even less.

So, yeah, let me play this tiniest sob violin of sympathy, I hope your army will get as much support and attention as DW did - zero. Then maybe people who complain when they were affected will get a clue when there was right time to start protesting. Five years ago
