I really do think GW should follow the rhino/razerback, taurox/taurox prime, wave serpant/falcon model on all transports, give us a basic transport, and then another more expensive option with more gun options.


Yeah. Or at least, give us the pure transport version. Some of the "transports' They put out have transcapacity as a complete afterthought like Repulsives. I feel that every time I bring my Goliaths with my GSC. "Boy, I sure am glad 20% of the cost of this vehicle is in non-optional guns that hit on 5s whenever the transport does its job of moving infantry around. I'm glad it feels super worthless unless it's sitting there being a stationary gunbox in range of an aura ability."


repulser was useless, gw should have doen better. Sm had the best cheap transports for years (arguably still do, though that is relative to other transports which are all overcosted)

as for GSC they have the option to take chimeras which are cheaper and can be drifthammered up as a mobile LOS blocking device.


I mean they can take chimeras in the same way that any imperium faction can take chimeras.

I can't put, like, my GSC units in them.

yea, the "drifthammer" method is move transports sideways, run units behind them and just block LOS to shots on them . its not ideal but it works

Agreed - more guns at the cost of transport capacity, that is. Rhino/Razorback/Predator is a great progression (if not in practice, but concept) and I’d enjoy a similar progression w/ Admech (assuming Onager is on the Predator end of the chain).

Heck, a hitched (walking) trailer drawn by the Onager would be awesome too.

I’m just hoping for a non-subterranean drill transport. Seems to me that such a transport would unacceptably destroy machinery as it burrowed if it was deployed in a factory-like area. And I imagine that Admech would often be deployed to protect/retake such worlds...

It never ends well

No chance whatsoever that the Warhammer Community would make a teaser for a FW product. It's just a coincidence that the release of a few Mechanicum stuff for 30k comes out after this news, and you can be sure the Warhammer Community will post a whole article about the new AdMech transport. Is there hope they'll show it at Warhammer Fest this week-end ?

EDIT: Just my opinion but why are the 30k AdMech vehicles so ugly ?

I personally love the more gritty 30k admech style but i can agree that it doesnt fit perfectily with the 40k lineup.
I think the way the article was worded there is a high chance we get something on the transport this weekend. Maybe not a full reveal + preorder, but maybe we'll get to see the model itself

I mean I love the other models like the Thalax, Thanatar, Domitar etc. but the full vehicles feel bland.

The transport version is excellent, like a WW2 landing craft.

I'm digging it. Has that mass produced skitarii aesthetic which we needed more of. The landing craft turned out well, while I'm sad it's not a walking transport, a hover one will be a lot more useful. Hoping against hope it'll have some sort of assault ramp ability.

The tank was a surprise, I expected it to be a razorback style thing, not just a straight up tank. While the more vehicles the merrier, I'm wondering if it'll suffer from overlap with the Onager. Either way, more skitarii vehicles is cool to see.

Wonder how hard it'll be to magnetize. Looks like the tank turret plates just slot in to the crew compartment so that'll be easy. Hard bit will the assault ramp and front hover bit.

I'm really digging the new model and wasnt expecting a dual kit. The tank version looks rad & concur the WWII landing craft aesthetic kicks ass. It appears to be open topped and hope that it has rules for shooting. My Vanguard cannot wait to utilize this new toy.

Praise the Omnissiah!

I think it'll work alright along side the Onager, Onager I think is a long range "fire support" design. this new one is described as close range so my guess is the intent will be for it to rush forward under covering fire from Onegars and blow gak up

I imagine the two crew for the side guns will be used for conversions, kitbashes, and dioramas, since they are full models that don't necessarily need to be there for the tank version (assuming it's a duel kit).

It's a dual kit, and the crew can be given Ranger or Vanguard heads(included).

So is it a repulsor tank or a hovercraft? Looks pretty cool. Clearly imperial aesthetic and I like that its a tank with signficant options.

Thats exactly how the Repulsor kit SHOULD have been, with an option to make a battle tank, a APC, or the in-between vehicle we got.

I think peltasts shooting out of it should probably hurt. Depending on how fast it is, if it is just a skimmer or if it actually has fly keyword.

Any guesses on stats?

I think M10-12 WS6 BS4 A4 S4+ or something like this.

weapon options could get interesting.

APC, Twin Ironhail Heavy Stubbers, 2 Heavy Stubbers, smoke, data tether.
Tank, from pics I saw missiles, cannon(new nameTM), Stubbers. Dunno if they'll have same weapons as onager, but prob have new options.

The side plates are either two different sets or there is some kind of extension for the tank one.
