Der Scorpius Missile Tank der Space Marine Legionen lässt seine Raketen auf die Schlachtfelder der Horus Heresy herabregnen.
Heresy Thursday – Keep Your Eyes on the Skies as the Scorpius Missile Tank Rains Down Death and Destruction
Attention, commanders of the Legiones Astartes. Are loping Tartaros Terminators hitting your front lines faster than you can react? Do pesky Heavy Support Squads pepper your precious tanks with punishing lascannon fire? Can Seekers take out your critical characters before they act?
What you really need is a hefty dose of suppressing fire, and what better way to pin your foes than under the explosive rain of a Scorpius Missile Tank barrage?
Built on the ubiquitous Deimos Rhino chassis (seriously, what can’t that little tank do?) the Scorpius Missile Tank was designed at the request of none other than the close-combat hungry Space Wolves.
All of their huffing and puffing couldn’t blow down the fortified xenos bastion-cities they came up against in their earlier campaigns, but a massive missile launcher system was just the ticket to bring them tumbling down.
Their Barrage weaponry provides invaluable indirect fire against all sorts of targets – whether they are clad in ceramite or not.
The Rocket Barrage special rule gives these mobile ordnance platforms a reason to stay still and make the most of their 48” range. Salvos from stationary Scorpius Missile Launchers confer the Rending (4+) and Pinning special rules, resulting in a truly devastating combo.
This effect lasts until your next turn, so those Heavy Support Squads may find themselves on the receiving end of a spicy Return Fire reaction if they put their heads above the parapet.
This is an all-plastic new version of the classic Horus Heresy tank, and you will be able to add it to your collection soon. There will be another reveal for the Age of Darkness next week.
