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.
Tech -Priest Dominus
The masters of the Cult Mechanicus, the Tech-Priests Dominus have a prodigious talent and hunger for war. Their minds are filled by a constant stream of information - bullet trajectories, optimal artillery arcs, las-pack capacities - and they leverage this information to visit destruction upon the enemy with every command issued from their cybernetically-enhanced forms.
This miniature cuts an imposing figure, augmented to the point of being almost entirely cybernetic. His insectile metal legs and various extra arms lend him an air of alienation, and his two interchangeable heads mean he can be customised to fit both Cult Mechanicus and Skitarii images. He features an impressive array of weapons; included is a volkite blaster, a macrostubber, an eradication ray, a phosphor serpenta and a power axe - this is his badge of office, and is detailed with a microphone and loudspeaker.
This multi-part, twenty component plastic kit contains everything needed to make one Tech-Priest Dominus, and is supplied with one Citadel 50mm Round Base.
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.
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
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.
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.
