A photo of a poster of the new AM has released - http://i.imgur.com/ieWX9ye.jpg

There's now more infantry, tracked Praetorian types and retro style robots (why does main GW so often come out with worse looking designs than FW?).

hehe yeah I was wondering the same thing about the robots on that poster. FW did a great job updating the Castellan why the heck would you do the exact same thing but do a much worse job of it. Why not a Colossus something else?

Regardless I guess this confirms Legio Cybernetica is still alive and kicking in the 41st century.

I am pretty happy with the tracked servitors from what I can see. Cool models.

Updates with stats. Looks like MC, 3W, 2A, WS and BS 3, 3+ save with a 5++ save that can reflect shots back on a 6. The Techpriest lets the unit either double attacks but not shoot, have FNP, or fire weapons 2x but can't move. New orders take effect on the next turn. the robots start with FNP.

The Skitiarii Codex mentions "The Titans of the Legio Astorum, known as the Warp Runners, are the only god-machines sophisticated enough to teleport straight into battle. This is a point of pride amongst the Lucians, and cause of envy amongst their fellow legions."

Wow. Where did that come from? That has never been mentioned in any of the previous campaigns featuring them.

Best ignored for the epic list for sure. If someone has a Warp Runners legion they could come up with some rules for a friendly game or scenario, but it sounds pretty unbalancing.

Awful fluff addition. As you say, best ignored, but could be fun as a small part of a narrative campaign or mega-game.

What? You mean a warlord titan teleporting in on your blitz armed with 4 laserburners would be unbalanced??! Noooo....

Only when painted up as Warp Runners titans though, no other legion teleports them.

You chose well with painting your titans up methinks Vaaish...

I wish I could claim inside knowledge but alas I cannot. I do have plans to paint up a bunch of objectives that read "I win" for my titans to teleport to :)

The rules of the new units are rather interesting.
Problem: No transport vehicles. But half of the infantry and the light walkers are 50% faster than corresponding units form other armies. Only the Onager Dunecrawler is slow like any other walker...but he has a 45cm Macro-weapon :)
