We'll find out soon enough eh.

I mean sure, they could have loads of uses. They're mining bots or something right, they could be a unit for GSC.

My point is that if you're doing a Necromunda gang and you want an Ambot to go with it, having to buy a box of two, especially given the likely price and if you only want the one, is a bit of a bummer.

What do they expect us to do, socialise with another human being in order to arrange to go halfers?

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

They wouldn't be any cheaper as a single sprue "character" kit.
Pack 2 mean they might be a proper multi-part kit,.

The 2nd ambot can be used as monster for scenario, or as an alternative model for the other one with different pose.

Well, 2 in the box help explain the probable $35 dollar price tag? I'm thinking a pile of them would be good for custom missions. Sneak into mine operation Zeta-smeg 3 and steal an ambot from the mine works

Yeah, there could be a dozen ‘bots working the mine and you have the option of the stealthy sneaky route where you go in quiet, hack the recognition protocols of one, and sneak back out with it, or go in heavy, disable one and drag it back out, but that will wake the defence protocols on all the others and there’s a chance you won’t be able to fix the one you appropriated if you hit it too hard…

I'm not seeing why they wouldn't be cheaper if you were only buying one of them. They look to be on 40's, so a single one wouldn't really justify being more expensive than the Troll positional for Blood Bowl at 15 quid. You really think they're going to sell two for 15 quid?

I was wondering why these were taking so long to produce. But it makes a lot of sense as they are in plastic. Makes they a lot more interesting and desirable especially as the black stone fortress Ambull is in plastic.

I'll take 40 burger buck for actual multi-part kit than tiny "character" sprue for 25-35. Unless they are 2 character sprue for 25US$ like the troll, which is an odd price for the usual 35-40 US$ 2 sprues character based on GW pricing.

5-15 dollar for another model and a chance that kit have some effort put into it, not just plastic cramped in tiny sprue? Yes.

As nice as they are, kinda worried that we'll be stuck with just those two poses and zero interchangeable parts / options to make them look different from the examples shown.

I'm thinking $35 USD for two models is an unhealthy level of optimistic.

For just Necromunda, possibly not, but I expect these will show up in Blackstone Fortress expansions and if there are any AdMech types out there who hate their daft looking toy robots, these would be a cool alternative. Plus conversion fodder (Killa Kans anyone?), I think GW are well aware that certain kits are used fairly extensively for conversions.



I'm really diggin the ambots. the poses look really cool but most likely will be the only easy ones to make. From the wording on the warcom article it might be 1 per box but can make 2 diff versions.

I can definitely see using these for castellan/ax kitbashing and for Blackstone to change it up from the flesh one released along with it. maybe with some greenstuff you could make a ambullbot monstrosity.

If it is in the same format as the previous Necromunda releases, it'll be two of the same sprue.

Well the priorities will be different now the game has done well. When the gangs were being done, it was a riskier prospect.

There might also be assets that exist, digitally now, for the plastics that didn't before that cross over with something in the main line-ups...*fingers crossed*

Ambots May also get multipurposed for KT and Blackstone fortress, so no point in doing resin. They could even do resin upgrades in the future.

Since when does "barely larger than" mean "twice the size"?

Don’t you mean “four times the size?”

Two of the coolest models seen for GW in awhile (that and some of the new GSC models). Totally gunna be buying them. I just imagine using Deathwing rules (or an actual good army) but total army of these guys or something to that extent. They look that good.

I'll be swapping out the castellax in my dark mechanicum army depending on size.

I'm just not sure how they fit into the setting.

They look neat, sure... But xenos styled robots that...something something? Why were they made? Are they actual robots (as opposed to fancy power armor, are they AIs, etc)? Why necromunda of all places?

Very strange one off that doesn't really fit in anywhere.
