There is a lot of VERY interesting info about a 40K codex we’ve all been dreaming about.
So we’ve all been saying for years that 40K desperately needs a new army and Adeptus Mechanicus has been at the top of the list for quite some time.
You 30K players have been treated to a full Ad-Mech armylist this year and it’s only getting bigger, but still the “standard game” players have been left in the cold.
The following rumors have been doing the rounds for the past two days, take a look:

“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.”
BUT, the big news is that a high quality image matching the EXACT description from the first half of the rumors is also doing the rounds and we can confirm its existence. So at this point we feel comfortable putting forward the information for the community.
It looks like Ad-Mech may indeed be under development.
