I love the idea of more mobile units for skitarii. They're so good at being a stationary castle, it would be nice to build a list utilizing their sleeker models. Maybe even making the other subfactions more viable so it's not a competition of "subfaction with the best shooty castle wins". That being said I don't know a ton about skitarii outside of people's competitive lists so feel free to correct me if that''s not the case.

I didnt know I needed gunslinging robot knights riding very good flamethrower faced metal dogs but I do need those very much.

Those bat guys look neat bit i feel like by looking at that glossy jpeg of them I accidentally broke 3 of them at the GW factory.

Fwiw admech does have mobile options. It just feels like the guns they have and the melee weapons they have are designed by two different guys.

I like the Zoat a lot pretty cool model from a time gone by. I always kind of wanted one.

The high elves have a whole new aesthetic on their armor. Not sure how much I like it. I do dig the hollow armor character though. Teclis is interesting posed by flying over top his flying ginormous human masked dog. Also they have both joined team giant horn. Not sure about that one I think I'd have to see him in person.

Mechano horses were a meh for me until I saw that one variant has a flamer mouth which makes them look like giant dogs! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for conversion opportunities with those guys. The flyers remind me a lot of the birdmen of catrazza. Those wings would allow a lot of freehand potential. I could see people using those as conversion bits.

Glad to see forge world getting an update. They are a more common part of the hobby now and should be getting revisions every so often.

I'm happy to play lower points levels with people who are staring out or building up new forces

Not even a day ago I was thinking about how much I want a unit that has a sort of cowboy aesthetic and those riders are exactly what I was thinking of. Especially the ones with the dual big irons, and the long rifle!

Ad mech already have the classical Greco/Roman vibe but so help me god. The image I have in my mind to make an army built up mirroring a Pre Marian Reform Roman Manipular Legion GAHHHH ITS LIT

Velites- Secutarii Peltasts "Light Skirmishers harass and disrupt"
Hastati- Skitarii Vanguard "Front line troops. Take the fight to the enemy take ground and engage the initial elements of the enemy force.
Principes- Skitarii Rangers "Middle Line troops. Hold ground, engage tougher elements of the enemy force."
Triarii- Secutarii Hoplites "Veteran troops commit them to where the fighting is fiercest and the "harder" elements of the enemies line.
Equites- The new Serberys Sulphurhounds FUCK YES Mechanical Horsemen!

Arrange some vehicles as "siege equipment" and its perfect.

Slide this project in for Summer 2020. CANT WAIT!
