You asked for it. Now the real question...will you actually use it?

Hmm I'm gonna buy it regardless but as far as using it, it depends on how many bodies it can hold and such.

As long as it's halfway decent, yes. Bare minimum it's admech so it'll look cool, good I hope I didn't Jinx that.

it's about time, question is will it be cheaper than the termite?

Now we just need more robots in plastic or give us rules for Mechanicum 30k units.

Most likely not Transports in general are pretty over priced this edition where you can buy entire squads rather then a transport.

Hyper-hyped for this announcement. I so want to play SWAT squads disembarking and shooting down their targets methodically. I almost started playing T'au just for Breachers in their Devilfish.

Hoping for at least a 5++ for protection, I can't play with vehicles that don't have an invuln. since I started Mechanicus. 12 men capacity, 12" move, a 5++ and affordable euro and points price is all I ask.

As for the comparison with the Drill, for the price let's see: a Drill pays minimum 134 pts for T8, 10W, 3+ save, Deep-strike, a D3 shot Meltagun, 2 Storm bolters, a really good melee weapon (this thing can deal 23 damage with max luck) and 12 slots.

If we compare to a basic Rhino at 72 pts, and pimp it up with my suggestions we could get a small increase for the +2 cap, and a chunk for the 5++. Slap a Cognis Heavy Stubber that costs 2 pts on this and I think it would be reasonable to assume 92-97 pts for the thing.

I don't want anything fancier than a tanky box to place my Skitarii inside, if they start adding unnecessary rules to it it'll get more expensive for nothing.

Transports aren't overpriced this edition, people just get all huffy because mathhammer is only useful in determining kill percentages and survival percentages --- with no measure for adding value for things like transport capacity.

Right!
if it isnt useable in metabusting screw your opponent play, it obviously sucks & isnt worth anything.

Man that outlook must be boring as hell.

My Metalica Carbon60 Skitarii cant wait for this. Praise the Omnissiah!
I think filling them with vanguard or peltasts would be really good(in normal non-cuthroat play). Hoplites might work as well. It'll be interesting to see what the capacity will be. I hope it os something like 12ish so a dominus or enginseer can accompany them.

I'd say the rhino and repulsor are. One just outright and the other from all its guns

Anyway. For all we know Admech might just get access to vehicles like inquisitors, people have already made the case that they make them anyway. That being said I have no idea what to expect.

Another crawler, hover tank, regular tank, or like the forgeworld 30k transport?

So you could get a Skitarii transport, or a Skitarii HQ - looks like GW are fairly clear on which it'll be.

I was amused by the number of "Request denied." responses, though.

Depends. If FW gets around to giving me Triarios rules I'll probably just use those instead, I've already got them.

From a design philosophy standpoint if you put transports with support abilities in HQ you'd have to move Ghost Arks to HQ.

First off, as much crap as I sometimes GW this " NEW " GW, the video for the transport request was funny. Kudos for that and I imagine the Ad mech players are supposed to be the skittari and the Priest is GW, so funny that.

That said, yes I will get at least 1, if not 2 almost regardless. If they are over the top price gouging that may change. If they are meh, it may just end up as one but we have been demanding this again and again.

I am hopeful they make it good and priced cost wise reasonably for buying and using on the board. Will they be bleeding edge ? Probably not, but I know as one ad mech player this is a good press forward. Finally after making all the vehicles for everyone else, they are going to make 1 more for themselves, heck yes.

The video implies that the incessant request for AdMech transports will be granted provided the AdMech players never again ask for anything else.

Same feeling here, if this is going to be $80 like the repulsor, it better be badass or I'm only gonna buy 1. I'm not delusional and thinking its gonna be $37.50 like a rhino but man if its in between those 2 I'll prob buy 3.

Yeah I envision it being about 50, maybe 55 - 60 US dollars. Seems about their standard, I'd scan other newish transports for cost idea. So I'm seeing around Rockgrinder cost. Though for that I'd hope it had some good options and maybe a dual use kit ?

If its repulsor price I'll be a sad skittari.

If we bug them enough, they give us what we want. That what I’ve seemed to learn with this announcement and the new forge father. Spam new primaris vehicles/melee troops.

If the truth can destroy it, then it deserves to be destroyed.

If it was open topped I can imagine the grinding of teeth from the rest of the Imperium - but it could be really good.

If its essentially a chimera then its probably so-so.

I don't think that is true. GW does what ever the hell they want. If they wanted they can make a faction right now that replaces an already existing one, without anyone asking for it.

Nah, just stop bugging them for a transport. Admech makes transports for every other imperial faction and used to have them in 30k...so the lack of a transport was most likely a choice back when they decided which how to invest their sprue budgets in the admec release.

GW doesn't take FW products into account when balancing factions I think, there's still this weird separation like the two are almost concurrent. And I'm glad GW doesn't expect me to buy a 93€ piece of RESIN to complete my GW plastic army.

In 7th Skitarii had the Scout move and Relentless that allowed them to have a balancing side to the lack of transport, it was meant this way as they wanted to define AdMech to be this relentless marching army for some reason. Now that they've stripped us of this Scout move and Relentless too (can't move and shoot with the Arquebuses now, not even a simple -1 to Hit) they're right to give us our transport option.

I sure hope it's not a light flying vehicle with good weaponry and 5 man capacity, what would we do with that ? We need a Rhino equivalent with a 5++, not some weird 8" move transport that serves no purpose.

Knowing GW they could just turn round and FAQ Skitarii so they have access to Valks and Chimera.

Don't expect to get a Macrocarid.

Please note, for those of you who play Chaos Daemons as a faction the term "Daemon" is potentially offensive. Instead, please play codex "Chaos: Mortally Challenged". Thank you.

I very much doubt it GW's hit upon a theme for 40k Admech, which is that they walk everywhere. all their vehicles are walkers etc. I expect as shuch we're going to see a transport that follows this design philophesy. which is actually potentialy kinda cool.


- the new Skatarii transport?

I'd much rather they went for something like an AT-TE than an AT-AT personally. I think the lower profile and heavier firepower would look better.
