So after this weekend's preview, thought it was time to set up a House of artifice thread. Pics & Links of the reveals to follow.
They may have shown some before the VS preview - I only just cught the end of the VS preview so It's possible they showed some FW goodness first... Bur from what I saw - No. It seemed a pretty short preview TBF. We'd have to see how the house of blades & Iron brutes get treated before we can estimate too much for VS, but I would expect the Khimerix, phyrr cats, and Lugger servitor, before we get the VS brutes from FW.No pets at all?
God I hope not. That would be some incredibly lazy writing... (If in doubt shoehorn in something from the wider universe)Anyone else getting serious Necron vibes from both the Archeoteks (high collar, segmented loincloth) and the Neotek Grav Sleds?
Combine that with their spider motif and the Necron scarabs...
Hopefully there's more but looks like no pistol options are available, and only the heads are different in the shown examples of the neoteks... And they are so similar it looks like mouth open and mouth closed versions of the same damn head...Those hoverboards will take up half the single sprue we are getting though, and i can't say i'm thrilled about it.
I highly doubt they’ll spell it out, but they’ve been pretty good with dropping “hints” in the Necromunda background without being too on your nose about it so I’m very interested to see where this’ll go. Whatever else one might want to say about the House books, the background for each of the Houses has been great so far, and together with Delaque, Van Saar have the most “mystery” to their history, so I’m very curious to see what they’ll do with that.God I hope not. That would be some incredibly lazy writing... (If in doubt shoehorn in something from the wider universe)
Now you've said it though...
I also thought the Archeoteks reminded me a lot of Warp spider Aspect warriors... Again fingers crossed that's a coincidence!
I‘m not too fond of the hover boards either. So far the expansion sprues for the gangs have had very little options not shown right away (though the Escher had an extra head and I believe some extra throwing knives), and only one (Subjugators) had a weapon option not shown on the box.Hopefully there's more but looks like no pistol options are available, and only the heads are different in the shown examples of the neoteks...

Me too, although I might cut down the boards a bit - but honestly these fit right at home with skimmer or flyer bikes in my campaign's houserule vehicle set.
