Via Faeit212:

Plastic Adeptus Mechanicus have been seen on sprue. New greens of Arco-Flaggelants and big tanks seen. The future is once again looking bright.


I have been holding onto this for a couple days, as I wanted to place it well and get it ready for posting.

I want to talk briefly about this rumor. At first look, readers will think that this is a ton of wishlisting, and while I understand this, I do not believe this segment is made up. A lot had to be removed and deleted for obvious reasons, and I have no or very little doubt on this source of information.

So assuming this is true, realize the time frame is after all current codices have been released. We have discussed the "all codices released within 3 years" for 6th edition, and wondered what would be coming afterwards. So what is this......? Sisters of Battle, an Inquisition Codex, or something More? We don't know, and either does the source. What ever all of this means, its not coming any time soon, more like late 2015 at the earliest.

Please remember that these are rumors

Some insights into models that are coming down the track.

A:I have seen a plastic adeptus mechanicus sprue with servitors and human sized (i.e. not space marine) adepts. This definitely exists because I have seen it, so don't confuse it with my second point, although I don't know where it fits in with the release schedule.

B: for over a year I have been seeing various photos of greens, and CAD print outs - so not just concept sketches - for imperial models that are familiar to the inquisition books. I have seen custodes-style models, arco-flaggelants, and ogryn-sized servitors (greens) - as well as a pretty big tank that looks like a cross between a land raider and a leman russ, in the style of the exorcist (CAD).

it seems to have become common knowledge in circles that A) the studio has definite plans for all this, and that B) there will be a 'new' race army book at some point at the end of this edition, similar to Dark Eldar.

'like Dark Eldar' I simply meant that, from the business's perspective, Dark Eldar were a new race when they got their latest codex and models. So 'new race' doesn't necessarily mean something like Tau in 2001, and I'm fully expecting it to be an imperial faction.

A and B may be unrelated. But, based on this, I am guessing that either that this is where sisters of battle will end up, or that their relaunch will be refocused on the weirder parts of the Imperium. I just want to make it clear though, I've never seen a new sisters of battle sculpt

Plastic Ad Mech? New Race? Evolution of Sisters? I dunno what this is, but it sounds damned interesting.

*throws money at the GW website*

Though I'm doubtful, as much as I want this - makes me want to go back to my old avatar -, I just can't help but feel the new tanks could be IG, or something else. If it's true like I've said.....

GIMME GIMME GIMME! NAOW

I'd love Admech to be true but wouldn't that be stepping on the toes of forgeworld something GW tend to avoid.

AdMech or Sisters rebooted, either way we as players win!

Sorry Zion & co but... I'd rather have AdMech. Still, judging by the text of this rumor, Sisters seems more likely--if it ever pans out to anything. Hopefully, hopefully...

Win Win for me, I'm an Ad Mech fanboy and also have and love Sisters.

Why do I think there is a chance I'll be hurt in the end? :p

Every year stuff about admech crops up, every year nothing is released, they have about as many rumours as sisters, yet nothing is happening with either

AdMech is the one army that I can safely say I'd start without even seeing the models if I knew for sure they were on the way. I won't be holding my breath though.

If there are already models on a sprue I can't see them waiting until the end of 6th Ed to release them. It means they have gone to the trouble and expense of making the molds, and if they went that far I can't see them leaving them sitting idle with no return off them for a few years to come.

As to the other stuff, if there is going to be Custodes models you can be pretty sure it'll be FW that do them unless GW are planning on expanding the whole HH project to more than just FW. Which would be very nice.

In regards to custodes I spoke to someone at a forgeworld seminar earlier this year and asked about three things (Corvus Marines, Custodes and Arbites!) and was told all three were definitely coming later on to the HH, Ad Mech will see a release one day but if there is anything to these rumours then it could easily fit in any number of places
