Adeptus Mechanicus Sicarians
Initially an elite assassination squad, the Sicarian Ruststalkers proved so effective at the art of killing that they were repurposed as front-line, physics-manipulating commandos. Their transonic weapons hum and resonate with sickening efficiency, passing through the strongest armour as if it simply didn’t exist.
The box contains 5 different, cybernetically augmented gasmask-clad Sicarian Ruststalker heads, covered in sensors and data-gathering devices to further the quest for knowledge. More machine than man now, their bodies are encased in pressurised armour. An impressive array of armament options include two transonic blades each, or a loadout of chordclaw, transonic razor and grenade pack, making a total of twenty-five included weapon parts. Their princeps includes a prehensile dataspike.
This 117-component, multi-part plastic kit contains all the parts necessary to make either five Sicarian Ruststalkers (including one princeps), or five Sicarian Infiltrators, and comes with five 40mm bases.
A workhorse not only of the toxic Martian skies, but of distant worlds at the forefront of the Tech-Priests' expansion for millennia, the Archaeopter is an agile fixed-wing aircraft. Piloted by a member of the Pteraxii caste, whose legs and scapuli superior are hardwired into its controls, the nano-carbon fibre-weave of the Archaeopter's wings is capable of morphing – a property it shares with the Pteraxii flight packs
One of many specialised castes of cyborg warriors available to the Adeptus Mechanicus, the Pteraxii are optimised for instinctive reaction and agility. Pteraxii’s reflexes are accentuated by paring back elements of cogitation that impede their primary function.
To be promoted from the Skitarii maniples to the Serberys corps is a great honour. They ride swift quadrupedal constructs whose razor-clawed limbs allow them to manoeuvre easily over the most shattered terrain, while their riders are mag-locked in gyro-stabilised positions.
The Skorpius Disintegrator of the Adeptus Mechanicus drifts gracefully across the dunes, its anti-grav motors thrumming quietly in stark contrast to its thundering guns. As it accompanies the advancing Skitarii phalanxes, the Skorpius Disintegrator delivers punishing salvoes from its ferrumite or belleros energy cannons, while its cognis heavy stubbers and disruptor missile launcher spit death at any who would threaten the armoured vessel.
The ruling castes of the Adeptus Mechanicus are the Tech-Priests – robed zealots whose flesh is replaced over time with bionic enhancements. These technosavants carry a bewildering array of titles, and each one specialises in arcane knowledge and esoteric lore, perpetuated with religious fervour.
