Also as a fun little note, the Technoarchaeologist fluff blurb in the codex has them fighting what might be League of Votann!


I have spent the last two cycles in auto-static meditation. I have analyzed the topographical echo-graphs. I have communed with Proctor Dominus Thargosen upon the magnetospheric anomalies. I have determined their connection to earthwork traces estimated within tolerances at M27 in age. There is first the matter of the native lifeforms and their repellent insistence that we cannot delve here. My analyses reveal their power generation sites, their subterranean transit-corridors and their mountain retreats that they no doubt consider their secret means of final defence. This holy data-inload I commit to the fleet's authority with but a single request: I want these vermin purged. This world's secrets are ours to discover.

I also love how we can guess "Squats" now, and it not be a reoccurring joke, but an actual possibility.

They can't release Daedalosius without releasing a whole frame of adventurers.


Never owned that set, just assumed they were all separate sprues. Fair enough, might be then.

Could be, I suppose. But given the 'hand holding the manipulator to hold the hose' level of redundancy involved, I suspect Ad Mech.
Squats seem a bit too techy, practical and competent for that.

Odd if it was admech, it looks a little too 'clean'. Also the hand seems to have only three fingers.

I would suspect something similar to the techpriest but for the Votanni.

It's normal to only have three fingers when you're from Mars. See for instance the Datasmith.

If you watch the initial video for the Leagues of Votann, you can make out a silhouette of one of their servo-harnesses. The "claw" is more like a face almost.

Looks either dwarf or Sigmarite - too low tech for the Kin. Is it a measuring gauge -the teeth catching that trigger mechanism?

That would be my guess as well.

That said, I'd enjoy this more if it was the loading mechanism for a weapon that shoots daemonic books. Sadly it's not Chaos styled at all.

Looks a bit like a ratchet strap, although I'm fair sure the top bit is wood.

I'd like it to be a Squat grudge thrower but that seems unlikely.

I don't know what else has books?
