Old rumor from Natfka:

Quote:
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
The new faction is in fact Ad Mech, Skitarii. As far as I know this is still a ways out, but who knows. There is only troops and elites, with vehicles. Mostly foot soldiers, guys with spider legs, and a couple tank/spider hybrids.

There is also a Dragoon which looks to be a dual kit with a rider on top of a bipedal machine. It has legs similar to the IG sentinels, but has a grafted human in the center of the machine. I am not as fluent in the background with the skitarii as I would like to comment much more.
That is from Dec. I think that gives us an idea of what is to come.

EDIT: Just saw next week's release stuff from my FLGS:

Vanguard/Rangers box of 10 $49 USD
Dragoon/Ironstrider $39 USD

And the paints are confirmed.

I can live with that with how much is going on in the models and the size of them.

I do hope the vehicle box is in multiples but there was no note on that so likely box of 1.

Dragoon price seems fair, but the Vanguard/Ranger kit price is disappointing. I was hoping it would be something like 18-20 rather than 25-28. Might have spoken too soon on an Ad Mech army.

Well, it's always pricier than it "should" be, but I was worried we'd see another $35 US for 5 models in a box, a la Scions.

I would think that is more accurate. Considering the size of a Skitarii squad and the points cost in-game, they are a Guard-equivalent army. And 25-28 per box of Guard soldiers would be very pricey, very quickly. Makes more sense that they would be around 19-20 at Wayland Games while a Cadian Shock Troopers squad, same size but half the options, is 13.50.

I'll be putting these into my Chaos Army. Love these buggers.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

From Warseer:
Quote:
Vanguards/Rangers 10 units 31€
Dragoon 38€
Release 4th april

Bought the WD a Minute ago

Btw next week will be weapons of skitarii and "what is waiting in the dunes"? Maybe more units
EDIT:
From Dakka:
Quote:
some more pricing info from my Card Ogre newsletter:

ADEPTUS MECHANICUS SKITARII (will make 2 different troop choices) $39
ADEPTUS MECHANICUS IRONSTRIDER(a walker with tons of guns!) $49
So looks like my FLGS rep's prices were backwards.

It's blurry, but with a price tag of 23.50, I highly doubt that walker is Riptide sized.

The Onager? More likely.
