Details on the Skitarii Models- Ironstrider is as Big as an Imperial Knight!



Now we have some details on this week's Skitarii releases. There are some surprises in this, including that the ironstrider is the size of a Riptide! Is this really the walker we have seen in the pics, or is there another model that has not yet been leaked.

These are rumors, but come from very good sources.

Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii
box contains 10 new plastic models. They can be made up as either Skitarii Vanguard, or Skitarii Rangers. Both units contain special and close combat weapon options.

Adeptus Mechanicus Ironstrider
Said to the backbone of the Adeptus Mechanicus Scout forces. It's a dual kit allowing you to make either the Ironstrider Ballistarius -long ranged heavy weapon walker, or the Sydonian Dragoon which is a close combat version.

It comes with a riptide size base and stand just as tall as the Riptide or an Imperial Knight.

  1. Hopefully it's a MC like the riptide too.

    1. well if it is a heavy weapon platform then it doesn't matter really, but if it is more close combat oriented then yeah being a MC would benefit it a lot...

    2. It's an armor 11, 2 HP vehicle.

    3. seems real flimsy for something so big. I predict the Long range one'll be the only one built. especially as if I want a close combat platform I can just use a Knight

    4. It's only 55 points comes with a twin linked autocannon or lascannon for 20 points more. Squadrons of 5 seems a pretty decent deal.

    5. ^ essentially a sentinel with a bit of extra doodads on.

    6. Yeah a sentinel....its not that hard to tell from the rider on top.
      Its as close to a riptide or knight as it is to a carnifex.

      Sometimes in wonder if GW staff are spreading these boasting rumors to sell stuff at higher prices.

    7. I'm thinking Dragoons running along the flank side of a Knight actually....

    8. they sure are @ Seb. not sure if it is the staff, but i am sure it is one of their members whom post here and elsewhere on the forums and they call it "leaks"

  2. This is interesting since we initially heard there were TWO walker-tanks: the Onager and the Dragoon. Perhaps there is a second walker kit that isn't the one currently shown.

    1. yeah i think it is pretty much almost confirmed right now.

      Cause there is a page for the onager dunewalker and even the wargear for it leaked already.

      So this release seems to be quite a big one.

    1. Pics leaked, it's not even the size of either of those..... It's a chicken walker with a lance.

    2. It must be that other walker that's the size of a Knight, the four-legged one. I think people are getting names mixed up.

      Delete
    3. I dunno looking at the pic closely I think it might come in at close to the size, maybe the size of a dreadknight?

      Delete
    4. that said the strider looks to cost about 29 pounds so doubt it'll be Knight sized.

      Delete
  4. The leaked pictures show a base that looks more like the Dreadknight's.

  5. Size of a Knight... lol. At biggest it's a dreadknight, more likely a sentinel or warwalker because they're expected to be taken in units of 5-6

    3. would be great if they had 3 a box. if they charge $165 Au it'd be awesome but more then likely will be 1 a box and charge $70-$110.
