Skitarii Release Videos


These videos are always the best way to see the new models, and I am really liking the aesthetics of this release so far. While the Ironstriders will be a very expensive addition to this kind of army, I dont doubt that we will see many people running around with at least three of them. Fragile, yes, effective, maybe?. Most likely I personally will start off with just one to test it out (i do like the model though). Those infantry though, are what I am looking at for pre-orders this week.


Here is the latest from Games Workshop on the Skitarii
http://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/blog/blog.jsp;jsessionid=81EFF9582B5FC8605F5943FE2B5A1995




Armed with radium carbines and galvanic rifles, the Skitarii rarely, if ever show their faces, their skin and hair ruined by exposure to radiation. Indeed, many of their limbs have been replaced with bionics, for metal is strong and flesh is weak.





And these are the Ironstriders, the war machines of the Skitarii Legions. Long-legged scout walkers, they sprint alongside their brethren, blasting apart their foes with beams of laser energy or electrocuting them with a well-aimed thrust from a taser lance.

  1. Awesome stuff. I certainly see both of these kits flying off the shelves, pricey or not. The real measure of the army will be what comes next to round it out. The walkers are decent AA and AV and the infantry are pretty decent anti-light infantry, but two boxes does not a Codex make.

    1. You want to talk about pricey try playing Storm troopers! I would say a dual kit with 10 models is pretty reasonable at 23 quid

    2. well playing horde guard (conscripts and blob squads) is even more pricey, so yeah skitarii are mid range in terms of price...

    3. Perfect.
      Now I can use the Skitarii miniatures as my Tempestus Scions.

  2. Why did I just torture myself by watching this? I just started an Eldar army...

    1. They actually look better than Eldar in my opinion. Too many outdated models in that range, sadly.

  4. I'll be getting some of the troops (some of the most detailed infantry I've ever seen) but as for the walkers I have no need of them, seeing as I run armored company, these will die to serpents in ways my russes never have.

    2. As much as the small joint form the taser lance arm to the torso is (makes me uneasy), the lanceman dragoon is a beautiful model. I'm just nervous that it will very easily break off without a pin or resting the lance on another part of the walker as well.

    3. I will be magnetizing that bit with the blessing of the Enginseers. Otherwise the Dragoons will be a nightmare to stow in a case, even in the brand new GW figure cases.

    4. I concur with my learned colleague Starchild's assessment. The holy energy of magnetism contains the sacred power required to bring resolution to this seeming obstacle in the path of the will of the Omnissiah. As with all things were there is knowledge there is a way and the Omissiah knows all, we the servents of the Omnissiah are hum,bled by this even as we seek to get ever closer by accruing all the knowledge that we may.

  5. Shameless self promoting, but I think I might have spotted the next GW AdMech minis.

    2. Damn it all the way to hell - thought I was fast for once :D

    3. They look even more interesting than the rangers/vanguard.

      'Proper' mechanicus.

  6. Upon closer looks, all of these models look even more awesome than before!!!

    Also from the looks of it, the walker IS about the same height as a Riptide roughly. Also the driver looks like true Mechanicus style with little much left of any humanity, with his arms and legs both cut off and wired into the machine as well as the bolts into the back of his head.

    Just ordered 4 boxes of each of the new kits!

    1. On the last page of the new white dwarf there is a dragoon with a imperial knight behind it, it seems like the dragoon comes up to the waist of the knight, that's not including the height of his taser lance thing though. Looks like about 4 to 4.5 inches high??

  7. I wish I could look at those concept sketches up close. Any guesses on the designer? It looks like Goodwin's work but I see hints of Blanche there too.

    Two Skitarii Vanguard/Ranger boxes preordered. I really like relentless snipers!

    1. Definitely assault oriented. Elite heavy hitters maybe?
