Which, considering GW just said the next pre-order will be 5/30, I doubt it.

New releases are going up for pre-order on the 30th. That's what they said.

Chronologically that's all the admech stuff first, then war of the spider with Bile, then pariah with it's models. Thats 40k, their's Lumineth in there somewhere as well but if that's not announcing that engine war is going up for pre-order on the 30th I don't know what is.

Expect that announcement on Sunday. Saturday has nothing to do with them reopening back up, it's part of what Adepticon and the other couple of cancelled events were going to have as previews.

There's a reason why the speculation is so heavily centered upon a starter set and a 'new edition'. June/July is when new editions usually drop(lets them have some time before the holiday rush comes up) and the teases usually start in March or April.

Skitarii are going up to £27.50, and the Enginseer to £20 so it's really good - unless it's going to be £65.

Still decent at £65. Three of them make for a solid army core.

Even at £65, I'd consider one from my LGS (with a discount) - I've only got one box of Skitarii, and neither of the other models.

Well certainly seems that this is very much a Mechnicus focused book with them accounting for 16 pages of new rules, Demons 15 though I'm not sure how much is genuinely new, Imperial Knights with 6 and Choas Knights with 5.

Depending on the price, I'd be looking at them for Skorpius. That thing's $75USD by itself.

I could always keep the Skitarii in storage for when/if I get more Peltasts or Hoplites. Or start kitbashing my own Skitarii-themed Techpriests.

That Start Collecting isn't helping.


I started the Skitarii a couple of years ago when they were launched but lost interest. Price shock over units like the Ironstriders didn't help.


I refused to purchase the Skorpius on its own for the same reason and sold on/ swapped the Skitarii in the two Kill Team starters I bought.

I guess it all depends on the price of the Rough Riders and the flyer.

It's been a while since we've had pre-orders, so my memory has gone fuzzy - would it be this week or next week we should expect proper Engine War rules previews?

Looking at the ToC, I'm kinda curious what the Exalted Greater Daemons are all about.

I'm also wondering how many pages of name generators the Daemons get

Lets see, being positive, the new start collecting is good for Ad Mech, that is a set up which if you are a new player you'd find good value in I think. Depending on how much it costs.

The cavalry guys I just love but my eyes water at how much it'll hurt the wallet. I'll need to get at least a small group of them, they are too cool. At some point of course but all very cool stuff.

Right behind you.

We're looking at $50USD(same price as the Akhelian Eels) to $60USD(same as most of the bigger cavalry) for the Serberys stuff.

Frankly, the Enginseer and Skorpius are $105 together. Skitarii are going up to $44 per the leaked prices. That puts the contents at $149--even at a $100 pricepoint(which is the most likely spot), you're getting the Skitarii for free.

Looks like we get Forgeworld specific Canticles, and maybe some extra Dogmas, unless they are changing both.

Also Holy Order warlord traits, which might be for things like Genetors and Explorators? There's two pages of those which seems a bit mad compared to one page shared between Forgeworld canticles and Dogmas.

[edit]Chaos Knights get 5 Houses to pick from, but not House Devine that the old scout titans and Slaanesh knights used to belong to.
Deamons get Exalted Greater Deamons and Infinite Forms of Corruption (one of which is presumably Kustom Jobs/Tank Aces)

It’s definitely more appealing from a force building perspective than its predecessor.

Sure, Ad Mech only need so many Enginseers. But on the secondary market, at least IG players might take him off your hands. If not? Your wasting less of the value than compared to the Dominus model.

I genuinely wouldn't be shocked if Enginseers in the next iteration of the Codex become a Lieutenant styled choice, where you can take multiples per FOC slot.

"Dread Households".

We don't know exactly what that is, but there's several named. So rules for them one would guess.

I doubt it's 10 pages of rules as going by the titles and exsisting PA books the first sectiosn look like faction specific fluff and name generators won't help in game, I made it about 5 pages of actual rules.

Right there.

Both the Loyalist and Chaos Knights get what is likely to be 'build your own household' styled rules.
