If I'm honest, I loathe this idea that GW has come out with. I still think the Wraithknight's ridiculous (It has a crotch-shield for the love of Khaine) and I find these giant walkers silly. My distaste for them aside, however, I think some sort of coven engine that can regenerate wounds, floats slowly around and takes a lot of shots while dishing out negative effects to enemy units (such as fear and other ailments when wounds are made) could be useful.
It would render some enemy units useless, take a lot of fire and make it easier for some other units to do their job.

All kidding aside I have a few ideas on what could pop up for a more heavy unit.  But realisticly It probably will be another skimmer if at all anything.  I have a feeling that we won't get an upgraded codex until a 7th edition.
Joking aside. If GW wanted to give us a fluffy awesome unit everone would buy, that fixes a much needed weakness we have, they'd give us this.

Sure that's the bird from bioshock infinite, but same principle. Imagine a grotesque scourge. Monstrous flying creature. Tougher than our skimmers and can literally go toe-to-toe with a helldrake. You'd put them in base contact just to look epic.

I think it's funny that a wraith knight can't just pluck fliers out of the sky or cc attack the third tier of a ruin, size and all.

But on point, since scourges have to buy their body upgrades, why not a seriously enhanced one (insert "you won't like me when I'm angry!" here) About as big as the Dread Knight (like Expletive Deleted has suggested) . A skimmer upgrade that has a special kind of grenade launcher that prevents overwatch as well as hand ones for wyches, kind of like tau marker lights but just one in the unit, rolling to hit for it to work. AND back on point, an actual dias model would be nice.

In Fist of Demetrius (May 2013) there was the following:

Chapter 20: fighting going on between IG and DE.

Size and description:
..I saw a scuttling form loom, a gigantic arachnid figure with clicking claws. It reminded me of a Titan, although it was smaller ...

There were men in the grip of those claws, ...

Weapon
The man seemed to be shrinking, dwindling, like a deflating balloon..

Armor
It gripped them like a drunk holding his last bottle even as the Baneblade and Leman Russ within our camp sent blast after blast stabbing into its body.

------------------
So, we have a DE monstrous creature that looks like a giant spider that can withstand hits from a Baneblade and Russ while staying alive. It appears to have a spirit leech weapon like the talos...

Seems like a solid contender for a large monstrous creature when DE get a 6th Ed release. I know BL author's sometimes take "creative license" with the IP; however, I have noticed several books over the past couple of years that pretty closely described models which have been released recently.

Hmmm, well this does seem like what we want. I'm all about it. Now if there was just a pic somewhere.

I...I can see a big spider like thing but that would push DE way into drow territory. I don't think we need arachnid looking anything only because someone from GW would bring in some kind of spider daemon and ruin the whole thing.

I like the spider idea alright, but it seems a bit redundant as Necrons already have a spider-like model. More of a fan of a giant FMC bat or something, in our fast attack slot, since fast attack is probably our weakest slot anyway. Give it some sort of sonar blast with the haywire effect. And laser eyes. And you can place a bat symbol where you want to deepstrike it.

Anything we get, it propably be something to do with hemmie covens... But I am big fan of coven lists and such. I have no problem if its spider thingy but like pointed out spiders are necron thing. We probably get something scorpion like or Octopuss like, big versions of Talos / Chronos. But one thing it has for sure: Tentacles. Lot's and lot's of tentacles.

Ohhhh "Space Kraken" would be a nice idea. Probably some kind of shadow type critter.

What about a Giant Grotesque? Like I am talking a Wraithknight sized Grotesque (more muscular and bulky though of course)

I had an idea called the Sorrows. Coven type FMC that were winged twisted beings.
