Add to this the previously released new dual tank/transport kit, the Dunerider/Distintegrator, and suddenly an army that used to be played so often in a ‘castle up’ style could now have lists which focused more on mobile firepower. They must have forgotten about our sweet drill boy. Coherency checks makes stringing these guys out not as fun as it used to be, and blasts make the 12 man blob probably not worth it. Knowing nothing … The Adeptus Mechanicus are the keepers and manufacturers of technology for the Imperium of Mankind. They have a 4+ BS right now, so if they did have to move you really needed to have CP to buff the BS back up, with stratagems such as Rage of the Machines or Elimination Volley. This grants your flyers protection, and also gives them a much more cinematic and narrative ability to perform sweeping maneuvers over your enemy. Rangers, being the great 30” rapid fire guys, really took it with their 2-point cost increase. Here’s our list. Vanguard and Rangers both went up to 9ppm. You can read my review of the book here.

Cawl has only gone up by 10pts which is surprising, I was expecting him to jump up further. With big squads, comes the issue of the previously mentioned Blast weapons. $5.10 0 bids + shipping . Hoplites and Peltasts also went up a point each. I was concerned that we’d see the Blackstone Fortress characters moved over to Legends, however they still have points in 9th, albeit with a 5pt increase, which means we can still have the Daedalous in our Ad Mech armies! That same package is now 270. If you don’t clear the chaff, then you can’t fire your Blast weapon. Each is utterly dedicated to enacting the will of the Omnissiah at any cost.

It looks bleak with the main chasis going up 45 points, but the guns got discounted so the net is only up 15 (115 total) for the Icaraus array and 23 (140) for the Neutron laser. They sure exist. That wraps up our view of the Adeptus Mechanicus, who sadly never really got a fair chance to dominate the meta with their new toys in 8th edition, but may still have lots of value and versatility in 9th. The same is true now, however, that Character must also be within 3” of a unit with either 3 or more models or a model that has the Vehicle or Monster keyword.

This means your army will naturally have to move more in order to obtain line of sight on the unit you want to shoot at. Are things as “doom and gloom” for the Adeptus Mechanicus as our initial pass in our Munitorum Field Manual review seemed to indicate? The Fusilave and Transvector also can be built from the same kit, so they have that going for them, I guess. Corpuscarii priests are in a similar boat, a 2 point increase isn’t the end of the world, but they are short ranged, fragile, and with the loss of their gauntlets only exploding on unmodified 6s really put them from the maybe good pile into the bin. In 9th Edition, the woods are Dense Cover which means you can shoot through them, however you are at a -1 penalty to shoot. But now the little guys. Realistically they are only a point above the pre CA19 changes, but both are completely outclassed at their jobs by new models.
