Looking back, is there anyone else that found this release actually quite disappointing? I mean, how many plastic kits actually are there? 5 or 6? And even then they had to sell it as THREE separate books (Skitarii, Cult and Knights) for maximum shekels.

>GW finally has the gumption to do AdMech
>basically everyone relevant from the Design Studio has either left or is in a figurehead role like Jervis Johnson, leaving the kids

I wonder how it might have worked out if people like Andy Chambers and Rick Priestley were still around when GW insisted that every army needed a Super-heavy and a flyer making.

My main disappointment is that I always imagined the Skitarii as 30% high-tech, best-of-the-best soldiers looking like something out of a USMC recruitment ad made by Robert Heinlein, 10% special snowflake weird science Magos, and 60% robots and servitors.

But that's really a personal opinion thing.

Well, they are still pretty damn elite compared to the Imperial Guard. Just not compared to Space Marines or Sisters.

>5 or 6?
rangers
infiltrators
dunecrawler
ironstrider

kataphron
kastellan
electropriests
techpriest

Even ignoring the dual kit nonsense (in basically every kit), you've got eight. Miniatures-wise, it was an excellent release.

My biggest complaint is they took the cool independent character Electropriest from ancient 40k and turned him into a slow, weird assault unit.

An Electropriest is a quirky techno-kung fu master hq.

Units of Electropriests are fragile lunatics.

I dunno, I thought it was pretty cool.

I'm just upset they're terrible. Such nice models deserve better.

Well if you for some reason imagine something to be completely different than it is portrayed in the fluff, you're bound to be pretty disappointed.

Where on earth did you get the usmc skitarii impression from?

what, the modern miniatures? Just google 'em, m8

if you're talking about the older rules

I do agree separating them into so many difrent codex's was a mistake

>>44708585
Not a USMC impression, but rather they're like what the USMC marketing team presents. Fluffwise they're extremely well-equipped, highly trained, and are bionically augmented.

> they're like what the USMC marketing team presents

What have you been smoking anon?
They're enhanced soldiers for the adeptus mechanicus, the superstitious machine-worshipping cult that's usually represented by crazy cyborg wizards with eclectic weapons and unique gadgets and gizmos. I don't see how they are anything flavour wise like the idea of USMC marines.

I mean, hell, fluff-wise the skitarii vary immensely from legion to legion according to the ideas and requirements of the individual magos.

Invicta Skitarii, as an example are geneboosted, heavily augmented techno-barbarians with modified fangs, brutal arm-guns, crazy melee weapons and bulging muscles.
