New Release: Warhammer 40K Adeptus Mechanicus Onager Dunecrawler from Games Workshop
Haven't been big on the newer Warhammer 40K models, but the Onager Dunecrawler for the new Adeptus Mechanicus is pretty nice. The model will run you 66.00 USD individually or get a squadron of three for 198.00 which is a whopping savings of ..... nothing. Available for pre-order from Games Workshop, will ship April 18 2015.
Owing its origin to the lost knowledge of millennia, the Onager Dunecrawler is based on the Mars Universal Land Engine; itself inspired by the bad-tempered beasts of burden that transported their masters across Holy Terra in ancient times.
The Onager Dunecrawler, rather than being a mere people-carrier, is absolutely brimming with advanced, powerful weaponry capable of reducing worlds to wastelands.
On the subject of weaponry, included in the box are four variants: an eradication beamer, twin phosphor blasters with sensors, a neutron laser featuring a coaxial cognis heavy stubber or an Icarus array - an awesome anti-air assault package comprising twin autocannons, a gatling flak launcher, an armour-piercing missile launcher and a radar dish.
The Onager Dunecrawler, a light walking tank, features four crab-like legs with optional armour plating.
The armoured cabin and reactor are complemented by a huge variety of modelling options, with searchlights, smoke launchers, cognis manipulators and mindscanner probes; and the cupola can be modelled closed or open, featuring a Princeps wielding a heavy stubber.
You get a massive amount of configuration and customisation available even before applying weaponry.
Included with this 119-component multi-part plastic kit, making one Onager Dunecrawler, is a small Adeptus Mechanicus transfer sheet and a 130mm round base.
