Games Workshop has heard the prayers to the Omnissiah and delivered – it’s a brand new Archaeopter for the Adeptus Mechanicus!

Are you an Ad Mech player? Have you been wishing for your own Flyer? Well, apply the holy unguents and light your activation incense because the Omnissah has heard your pleas. Meet the Archaeopter:

Adeptus Mechanicus Archaeopter

“Festooned with sensors, tech-gubbins and a truly terrifying array of weaponry, the Archaeopter will look right at home raining death on your enemies above your Adeptus Mechanicus army!”

“This archaic-looking aircraft can be assembled in one of three patterns – a gunship, bomber or transport variant – and will provide your Adeptus Mechanicus forces with a suite of new tactical options.”


That looks pretty great! It certainly has an Ornithopter look. In fact, I suggested this look way back in 2017. I don’t know if GW listened to me or not – but this is a flyer I’d can totally see fitting in perfectly with the Ad Mech aesthetic!

Looks similar, but different enough – I like the design! I’m also really excited to see what GW has cooked up for the rules for this flyer as it’s going to be a multi-role vehicle. With three different patterns this kit is surely going to be loaded up with some really cool extras and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Ad Mech Players, congratulations on this new kit and kudos to GW for making this dream a reality.


The Skitarii take to the skies in 2020!
