It appears that this shows up every few years...

Maybe, with GW's "new look" its a maybe, I mean it may help round out the Imperial Knight dex.. but I think it should be taken with much salt.

Yeah, as much as I'd like it to be true, this crops up periodically, and has never come to anything. I'm not seeing a whole lot left for GW to do with all the fantastic AdMech stuff FW are putting out.

Yeah. I wasn't sure as I've figured Ad Mech stuff has kind of been covered.

Just for curiosity sake: what went on in the year or so before Tau got launched? Was it a big surprise or was it a long time coming?

2001 was a very different time, we had the net but it wasn't anything like it is today, and GW handles information very differently. So I wouldn't draw parallels..

But there have been Admeck rumors since I have been on forms (so about 2000 to be honest)

Well TBH if they do put out a 40k AD Mech army list it will likely be a FW one. Cos tbh they have made a load of models for 30K AD Mech, and probably wouldn't be a great hardship to make transferable rules to update them to 40K stuffs by stealing a load of specialist gear that no longer exists and adding in a few new bits that have come in to use.

I'd rather see Sisters updated to a full Plastic line before I see a new faction, especially if said new faction is an Imperial one.

I could see a AdMech army mini-dex being released, possibly something similar to the Tempestus mini-dex. At this point, it wouldn't be really that hard to do, there's already precedent. They'd basically be superguard with different toys, in much the same vein that Tempestus is, IMO. Allowing some of the FW HH Mechanicum units in 40k would also not be unheard of - we had Hydras and Manticores a long time before they had plastic models.

I'd take the rumor with as much salt as allowed however, since we've heard it before, again and again.

As it stands right now, every dex has been redone in the last couple years. With Necrons coming out early next year, they'll need something to create more releases, and AdMech and Harlequins and things like this... it makes sense. Small options, like the Inquisition digi'dex. Model waves were only 3-4 kits in a month anyway, so they could build a Skittarri (however you spell that) box, and maybe one or two interesting vehicles, and make them a detachment, and there's a month. Just like Harlequins get a few units to slip into an Eldar or Dark Eldar list.
