Heh. It's an ornithopter. Hilarious. I quite like it.

The Triumph... man. Really hope that kind of "Diorama HQ" doesn't become a trend. Hmm...

That said, the individual minis are very nice, and they're all lumped together on an absurd base.

Absolutely LOVE both reveals. Admech flier is apparently marmite but I think it is beautiful. Sisters continue to knock it out of the park.

Honestly when you look at the AdMEch range the new flying unit fits in very well. Also for those saying that GW are making them look like 80-90s sci-fi war toys - I think that is honestly their intentional angle with the designs! Just like Imperial Guard are WWII fantasy tanks of a similar design ethos an era.


The new Sisters of Battle diorama is outstanding! I agree that the sister heading up the team really looks the part of powerful and serene and yet also menacing as she leads the group through battle. An epic model!




Also GW stop rubbing the salt in the Tyranids already! Another view of Mephiston and Tyranids get - wait for it - a new box for the Hive Tyrant and Termagaunts. Though I can't complain too much as, far as I can recall, the prices haven't shifted (if they have then gaunts just got as much as the other infantry); but it does feel kind of sad that Marines got this awesome sculpt and new leader and Tyranids got just some rules in the book.

Completely agree here.
While I love how it looks, these things are a display piece.
On the table they really aren’t even close to practical by any means, let alone getting them to begin with.

Not even slightly tempted with a sisters army but may pick that up and make a larger base as a painting project when I have time.

Ok, Mr pedantic...

I mean, they are literally legs- not landing gear (though that is presumably what they are). A pair of legs. The more and more I look at it the more and more it reminds me of Skylynx from Transformers.

Ahh I knew it reminded me of something! The helicopter type cockpit threw me off. Yes its an ornithropter right out of Dune! Again its very 80s era sci-fi and very fitting for 40K.

Chances are seeing them in the flesh and seeing them with other units from the army will help them blend in. Sometimes a model out on its own looks out of place or not very interesting, but blended into an army it works. It's like that for me with the Genestealer cults. I disliked their first vehicle. It looked daft and wrong and out of place in an army which, at the time, was basically a few genestealers; a few half breeds and then a lot of Imperial Guard models. However when GW then added the light vehicle, the bikes and buggy and a whole slew of other cult models the vehicle suddenly fit into the theme. They want from "an odd bunch of miners alongside the Guard" to an organised army of underhiver minders rising up with fearsome futuristic tech and re-appropriated mining vehicles.

I like the flyer. I can't say it works in Admech but I like it.


Also, I like the reference in the multipart repentia kit to the drawing of those very creepy repentias, with the one that has a scroll in his tongue.

Love the new Ad Mech flyer personally. The very mixed reaction does highlight to me what think is the big problem with the Ad Mech range. There’s just no single unifying aesthetic. The range feels like a mix of whatever felt like a good idea at the time. On the one hand you have the weirdness of Dragoon walkers with lances and this ornithopter, on the other you have the industrial utilitarianism of the hovercraft. It’s almost inevitable that no one person will like everything in the range and not think parts of it don’t fit.

I disagree. While a unified aesthetic across the range is normally really, really vital for making the range work, the lack of it for AdMech is totally on point. It really helps to reinforce the diverse nature of them as a faction, and the vast pool of different resources that they draw technology from.

That may be so from a background point of view, but I have a hard time liking Ad Mech as a faction as a result. Most factions in 40k, I either like pretty much everything, or dislike everything, which is fine. Some factions I like, some I don’t. The problem with Ad Mech is that I really want to like them, but hate half of their models (while really liking the other half).

You can get that even when there is a unified aesthetic, though. I love the design of regular Primaris Marines, for example... but hate the jump packs and vehicles.

By contrast, I've loved everything GW have released for Ad Mech so far.

The flyer is just a bit too on the nose. If it was a bit more evocative but the wings and tail looked more mechanical then I think it would be pretty neat, but it just looks a bit too fantasy-esque as is.

I love the St Katherine set though, that's lovely.

It is a bit of a shame that the Mistress of Repentia is worse than the ltd one. I hate when that happens.

They already made a flier which is quite clearly based on the MiG-17; the ork dakkajet has a similar overall shape and the distinctive intake.

It may be busy, but I do love the Triumph.....more than the flying pulpit by a long shot.

As for admech, it fits perfectly with the steampunk/classic sci-fi look that the rest of the range has. The wings also give me John Carter from Mars vibes too (at least the movie, haven't read the books)

Yeah I did see that but I expect it to be a teaser trailer for book 4 and maybe some burb about the campaign continuing and that's about it.

i think hover fans like the ones in Avatar would look better than the wings. maybe a 3rd party could do a conversion set?
