The Horus Heresy: Typhon Preview
Mit dem Typhon Heavy Siege Tank rollt schweres Gerät auf die Schlachtfelder der fernen Zukunft, bereit die Legionen der Space Marines in der Horus Heresy mit schwerer Feuerkraft zu unterstützen.
Heresy Thursday – Turn Astartes, Tanks, and Buildings, Into Craters With the Typhon Heavy Siege Tank
There’s no shortage of things that need blowing up in the Age of Darkness. Dreadnoughts, Cataphractii, Kratos Heavy Battle Tanks, all of these and more can be torn asunder with the Typhon Heavy Siege Tank.
The Typhon Heavy Siege Tank shares a chassis with the Spartan, but instead of carrying squads of Tactical Marines and Terminators across the battlefield, it mounts a centerline dreadhammer siege cannon.
It was created by the Mechanicum after a direct request from Perturabo himself.* No stranger to prolonged and brutal sieges, the Hammer of Olympia wanted to get big guns to the front line as fast as possible and thus the Typhon was born.
As with many Spartan variants, the Typhon can expand its specific blast-tastic loadout with a choice of sponson weapons such as heavy bolters, volkite culverins, heavy flamers, or lovely lascannons.
The real star of the show however, is the dreadhammer itself. Strength 12 and AP 3 make a mockery of heavy armour, and that performance is only improved by Rending (4+) and Sunder. Beef that shot up with Ordnance and Blast 5” and a stationary Typhon can take out whole squads of Legion Tactical Marines at a time.
It’s not a long distance high explosive delivery machine, but its medium range of 24” is largely offset by the heavy protective armour to weather return fire. It’s not just enemy ordnance you need to protect against either, we heartily recommend any tank crews sent to operate a Typhon pack protective ear defenders too!
Check back next Thursday for another Horus Heresy reveal.
* Not really big on diversifying their portfolios of war, these Primarchs.
