Space Marine Stalker/Hunter New Release for Warhammer 40K

We missed this one from last month, the new Warhammer 40K Space Marine vehicle box set can build either the Stalker, or the Space Marine Hunter.

With the plethora of new aircraft for Warhammer 40K this new kit will create an anti-aircraft tank to be reckoned with. The Space Marine Stalker can target multiple enemies, stitching the skies with a hail of armor piercing bullets.

The Space Marine Hunter, meanwhile, scours the enemies from the skies with its surface-to-air missiles.

The main weapon of the Space Marine Stalker is the Icarus stormcannon array; whilst the Skyspear missile launcher is the primary gun of the Space Marine Hunter.

Whichever version you choose to make, there are options to include re-enforced armor on the sides of the tank, as well as pneumatic pins along the base.

Both variants are built upon the Space Marine Rhino hull which is included in this set. This includes a back ramp which can be left unglued so that it opens and closes; interior detail including a control panel with spare boltgun; and 2 side hatches that can be glued open or closed.

Also included is a sprue of vehicle upgrades with which even more detail can be added to the model. There are a choice of 2 top hatches 1 of which has the option to mount a storm bolter.

You get enough parts to make either a Space Marine gunner within a turret, or an automated weapons system; a hunter killer missile; a pintle-mounted storm bolter; a sensor array; a searchlight; 2 smoke launchers; 2 towing hooks; and a name plate for the tank.

The Space Marine range is designed so that all of the plastic parts can be swapped between different kits.

The Space Marine Stalker is no exception, as it uses the Rhino hull in its construction many of the parts found on other Space Marine vehicles can be added to this, allowing the opportunity to create truly unique collections of miniatures.

Have a Great Battle,
The Old Crow
