Today a little more information came in regarding a new faction. We have been told in the past by sources there will be a big surprise new faction release, and for the most part many people are assuming this is the Harlequin codex that is said to be coming in February. However, from the looks of the information coming in, we might be a little surprised this coming year with an fully realized Adeptus Mechanicus army for 40k.
I hope we get to see more of this, but please remember that these are rumors. If this pans out..... I will be having to start a new army. Skitarii supported by Knights just sounds like a ton of fun.
If you missed the earlier rumor regarding the Adeptus Mechanicus, here is the link

The new faction is in fact Ad Mech, Skitarii. As far as I know this is still a ways out, but who knows. There is only troops and elites, with vehicles. Mostly foot soldiers, guys with spider legs, and a couple tank/spider hybrids.
There is also a Dragoon which looks to be a dual kit with a rider on top of a bipedal machine. It has legs similar to the IG sentinels, but has a grafted human in the center of the machine. I am not as fluent in the background with the skitarii as I would like to comment much more.
