Ballistarii at £28 each?

Sigh, there go my dreams of having an AdMech plugin to cover my ranged anti-tank

Still possible if there is a cheaper box set or Battle force to get them in.

But yeah, it's priced well for it's size, but not usability or unit size. If/when I add these to my collection it'll be slowly.

The Pic is a bit blurry so I've probably got the price wrong. Either way, the price seems WAY too good for something "Riptide sized".

May or may not have a copy of this White Dwarf. I hadn't realized that the Ironstriders contain a slaved servitor hunched over right behind those glimmering blue eyes--even more Blanchitsu to fall in love with, for a mini that costs more $ than it fills points, base, in the Dragoon form.

CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!

via TheFang, Warseer, about the Skitarii's description in the WD:


Quote:
The description of the skitarii in the new WD is pretty good. Extensive bionics including removing eyelids and fitting visors with unguents and oils to keep the eyes working, "Blinking is an inconvenience easily solved".

The decal sheets are in the new kit. No picture of these I can see. The big one has 999 separate transfers. It's all Mars specific down to the skitarii designations. Presumably the background book (if we get one) or the codex will include alternates. All the Cydonia and Dune strider and the skitarii having legs removed to avoid the contact with the sands of Mars are very Martian orientated. Other forgeworlds mentioned are Ryza, Metalica, Agripinaa and Lucius.

Interesting background to the noosphere where the skitarrii feedback information and the techpriests take the input and reprogramme the skitarii. "this sudden reprogramming feels like the touch of the Omnissiah himself". "Spurred on, they will carry out their task to the letter, even if it leads to their own demise in the process. Misguided devotion? Perhaps. Effective? Unquestionably. Sounds like the base of the Doctrina Imperatives.

Techpriests lead from the ships and run the battle via the noosphere. The skitarii alphas and alpha primus who lead whole maniples so that sounds like the special characters with possibly no techpriest..

The walkers have to keep moving at all times or they will never move again as the Mechanicum don't understand the construction properly. Ironstrider legs can be fixed to either side of the body for maximum difference in posing.

Nothing we haven't seen before in the pictures as far as I can see. Lots of knights in the background. Rear cover shows Skitarii, Knights and Ultramarines in the same force.
