Luckily its up for pre-orders in only a few hours from now.

  1. Some great new toys for my Techpriest to get his mechadendrites on!

  2. Some fun stuff so far!
    I really hope they get new relics though, because that is one of the major flaws of the Codex, they are scrambling do have one decent relic in there. Which is surprising, considering who we are talking about..

    1. Karma, eh? They hoarded all the goodies, then hid them so well not even they can find them!

    2. Their tech is unique, but also isolated. Wonky more than necessarily good. They're a cult more than they are a science lab.

    3. Which is exactly why they should have wonky, one of a kind relics, yes.

  3. Although I can see why some people might be put off by the DaVinci-esque wings, I gotta say I quite like these new flyboys. If nothing else I can use them for fun conversion parts when combined with guard and marine bits.

    1. It also makes sense being that they are isolationist cults more than just scientists. Their tech would be weird; advanced is some areas but in a way that seems inefficient to others.

    2. You're saying there's a lore excuse as to why the models look terrible?

    3. And its not even a good excuse either. Like, look at those wings and tell me that they look like something from humanities golden age of technology

  4. AdMech stealing designs from Eldar confirmed.

  5. The bomber is kinda weak with only 4 stubbers and a bomb run gimmick. Though at first read I thought it could only damage Monsters and Tanks.

    The Raiders are really cool.

    1. It only costs a hundred points though, right? And the stratagem that halves movement of a unit that was bombed could be really annoying I think.

  6. I love the look of the flyers and the raiders. What I can’t figure out is why the cavalry is t3. I feel like small arms is going to eat them for breakfast and locally I am paying $1.60/pt

    Also there was a nerf to taser weapons (natural 6s only now) and either kastellan robots dropped to 65pts/model or there a typo for the 0pt heavy phosphor blasters.

    1. My guess is they are only toughness 3 because you get 9 wounds with a 4+/6++ and a heap of "go fast" special rules for under 50 points. The price is ridiculous though, I will agree..

    2. Yeah I dont understand why those dudes with the paper wings have the same toughness and only one wound less than the dudes on the robot horses

  7. The Alphas have even less wargear options than primaris sgts. And primaris sgts (excluding intercessors) basically have no options.

    So these models look like they are all monopose and have no weapon choices either. Only one out of every 3 sulpherhounds are lucky enough to have carbine. The bird guys should have had atleast 2 sets of weapons to chose from, like how sicarian ruststalkers and infiltratirs do it. Honestly, the flechette carbine I could easily have seen on the sterylizors as they are both anti horde weapons. The carbines could have been 18" instead of 24" and the other variant could have been something with longer range but less shots.

    Or perhaps leave them as is but give them the option to replace their guns for a pistol and ccw combo or something. I donno.

    Anything to make those models actually worth buying

    1. Yeah they have been going towards monopose, no option models quite a bit lately, except maybe for Sisters? Not sure, haven't seen their sprues.
      But I'm gonna bite the bullet, because I love everything about these dogs and want at least one team of them, even though they're so ridiculously expensive.

    2. I like the look of the sulpherhounds with theyr flamer mouths, but Im not sure about the raider' horses. Im not sold on the raiders' because they look too "normal." If they had like optics lets say, and a more practical mouth (because right now it looks like an animal's actual jawbone) then Id probably loke them more.

      I do like the rider though and I love the look of the weapons, especially the phosphor ones, which is ironic because I hate the look of the phosphor blast pistol. Overall I like the Serberys.

      The flyguys on the other hand dont just look bad, but they are also the first and only admech jump units as of yet which makes it even more dissapointing.

      And then theres the frog copter... That thing has legs, and a cool looking rear mounted turret. Those are the only redeeming qualities of one the most out of place models in the game, as well as being the worst looking model in the admech range. They are even more dissapointing than the flyboys because an admech flier was high on peoples' wishlists
