I think the Skitarii kit is £23.50 at GW (So £17.60 at Wayland Games where I order all my model stuff). It's the walkers that I am really curious about, as big as a Riptide yet very cheap in-game so they can't be as expensive as Riptides and Imperial Knights because then an Ad Mech army would be bankrupting.

...Actually, you're looking at about 'Fex size for the Walker. The key is the base.

No other wording on that thing's price however.

You sure about that? Because every blog I read says the Dragoons are Knight sized. The base could be smaller because the walkers are lanky, so not as much need for room.

I think previous discussions on here say 'Fex scale. I was also talking with the guys at the local FLGS this morning, who are of the same opinion.

And honestly, if anything's going to be Knight/Riptide Scale, I'd put my money more on the Spider Tank than the AT-ST.

I think every blog is just parroting the same info from whoever leaked it to begin with.

Also this. Again, I highly doubt it'll be Riptide/Knight sized. Heck, one of the guys referred to the base as a "Flyer Base".

Ah well, still very cool looking. I look forward to seeing this "spider-walker" as well, and the Onager Dunecrawler. And if the rumours about a Secutor are true i'd love to see that as well, the Secutor in Graham McNeill's Mechanicus trilogy was a badass, both in appearance and combat skills.

The walkers are really cool, no doubt about it. They're even Shrouded! That's super cool, gives them a chance, at least, to not get insta-sploded.

Nope! They can still get Shrouded, for an even better save...

Oh right, glossed over the wording of it. Hah!

"There is incense coming out of that thing. The smoke is just obscuring the outline of that giant walker too much for me to shoot it accurately. Here goes nothing!"
