Necromunda: Escher Cutter Preview
Das Haus Escher entsendet seine Gangs ebenfalls in die Aschewüsten jenseits der Makropolen von Necromunda, mit den Escher Cuttern bekommen diese auch eine besondere Art von Gefährt.
Take a Spin on the Escher Cutter – A Lightning Fast Jetbike For When the Floor Really is Lava
The Escher Cutter is a solution dreamed up by the engineers of the House of Blades, who are clearly enjoying slightly too many of their own Clan Chymists’ chemical creations.
It’s a jetbike in its purest form – a giant engine propelling Escher gangers at staggering speeds, granting them a Movement of 9″ and the ability to soar over buildings and rivals. Combine that with the underslung weapons – a choice of twin-linked grenade launchers, plasma guns, or heavy stubbers – and these beauties really pack a punch, no matter where they are in the engagement zone.
Perceptive hivers will note that Cutters don’t count as vehicles – instead, much like the dirtbikes found in the Book of the Outlands, they grant the Mounted condition. That means they’re personal equipment, and can be handed to Queens, Matriarchs, Prospects, or even Death Maidens. Of course, with a 9” move, if your gang leader is clipped at top speed, she’s really going to feel it when she reconnects with the ground. Better hope that famous Escher Initiative helps her cling on…
Then there’s the small matter of the gas trap launcher – because it just wouldn’t be House Escher without the 41st Millennium’s equivalent of a stink bomb.
The rules for the Escher Cutter, the Goliath Mauler, and specialist vehicle crews for both gangs are only some of the goodies being made available in The Aranthian Succession: Cinderak Burning, the upcoming narrative supplement for Necromunda.
