The Adeptus Mechanicus are FINALLY getting a transport and it’s definitely got a unique look!
Games Workshop teased us with a video about the Ad Mech possibly getting a new ride to battle. Turns out that wasn’t just a possibility – it was already in the works:

That’s right – as some of you cunningly worked out from our earlier preview, the Adeptus Mechanicus are finally getting a dedicated transport in glorious multipart plastic! Goodbye wheels, hello barely understood, deadly technology from the Age of Darkness. The Skorpius Dunerider opens up the option for a new type of Adeptus Mechanicus army – a force of mobile infantry, whether bringing the brutal short-range firepower of the Skitarii to bear with deadly efficiency or dropping fully charged Electro-Priests right in the middle of your foe’s army.
That’s not all either! This is actually a dual kit that can also be built as a Skorpius Disintegrator!
It also shares some design aesthetics with modern hovercraft, too:
GW has managed to mix the Retro-futuristic look of Adeptus Mechanicus with some modern military equipment and the results are really unique! Get ready to storm the beaches of those no-good heretics for the glory of the Omnissiah!
Anyone else thinking about a Saving Private Ryan/Mars Attacks cross over? What? Just me?
