Horus Heresy: Legions Imperialis Super-heavy Tanks

Schwere Feuerkraft, die sogar einen der mächtigen Titanen in den Staub schickt, rollt in Form Superschwerer Panzer der Solar Auxilia für Legions Imperialis an.

Heresy Thursday – Eradicate Titans with New Super-heavy Tanks for Legions Imperialis

With so many Titans and Imperial Knights stomping around in the Age of Darkness, the Solar Auxilia need the support of super-heavy firepower to put the god-engines in their place. Nowhere is this more evident than in Legions Imperialis, where the Adeptus Titanicus roam free and frequent – so it’s high-time to shrink down a titan-killer or two.

Shadowswords are massive, armour-busting beasts built on the Baneblade chassis, with all unnecessary hull weapons and bulky turrets stripped away to fit a colossal volcano cannon. A squadron of these behemoths can make swiss cheese of the largest Titans, and it’s a foolish Princeps who doesn’t treat them with the respect they deserve.

In games of Legions Imperialis, the volcano cannon packs the crucial Engine Killer (2) trait,* so one Shadowsword can blow an Imperial Knight to pieces in a single well-placed shot. But if you’re not coming up against quite so many Titans, the sprues in the Shadowsword’s box can instead build two additional variants with world-shaking weapons of their own – the Stormblade and Stormsword.

The Stormblade swaps Titan-cracking firepower for a more general-purpose plasma blastgun, which has double the rate of fire for only a slight reduction in power. Its excellent AP value makes it a shoe-in for melting tough vehicles and any Space Marine elites who stray inside its 20” range.

By contrast, the Stormsword excels at a single, vital role – blowing enemy cover and fortifications to pieces with a gigantic siege cannon. It carries the rare Demolisher trait that allows weapons to damage Structures, and with so many packed cityscapes for enemy troops to hide in, the option to callously level pesky strongpoints looks attractive indeed.

The rules for these tanks will be available in an upcoming expansion for Legions Imperialis.

* This rule means that shots from this weapon can inflict two extra, unavoidable Wounds to any Vehicle, Super-heavy Vehicle, Knight or Titan models they hit.

  • Mit dem Vorschau-Bild auf der GW Community-Seite, gestern Abend, bekam ich ja fast einen Herzinfarkt, aber dann war’s „doch nur“ Epic Scale….😝

  • Sind echt cool, ich mag den Baneblade Bausatz für LI und habe davon schon einige gebaut. Aber langsam würde es Zeit, die Einheiten aus dem Regelbuch und die aus der Erweiterung zu veröffentlichen, bevor es weiter geht mit noch einer Erweiterung.
    Und ich hätte gerne mehr Fotos von Miniaturen als in The great slaughter. Das war sehr mau
