It is common for a Genestealer Cult to thrive on industrial worlds. When the cult rises up to overthrow its oppressors, they employ all manner of improvised industrial equipment from their arsenal. Among the largest and most impressive of these is the Tectonic Fragdrill, a huge piece of mining gear often found in a Sector Mechanicus that can cause targeted earthquakes.
Realm of Battle: Moon Base Klaisus
The perfect way to start a collection of Citadel scenery, this is literally a battlefield in a box! The best way to play games of Warhammer 40,000 is on specially-made terrain – it just feels that bit more immersive to move your models around a true representation of the war-torn far future, instead of just the kitchen table. Moon Base Klaisus has been designed as a great entry point to this side of the hobby – it requires no painting, takes 5 minutes to set up and put away, and fits on the average family dining room table. Included in the box:
- 4 fold-out gaming boards, made of extra-thick, hard-wearing card. These sit next to each other on your table to form a 5'5" × 3'7" battlefield. The boards are double-sided, one side featuring the ruins of Moon Base Klaisus, and the other featuring a Martian landscape;
- 4 push-fit plastic scenery pieces - no glue required – representing ruined wall sections, which your models can take cover behind. Each of these is able to slot into the others in any combination, allowing a variety of scenery – especially when combined with the 3 plastic ruins, access hatch, and Inquisitorial crate that are included. Each of these scenery pieces are designed to be match the Sector Mechanicus scenery kits available, making expansion easy;
- 3 Crucible of War missions, designed to be played using the contents of this box. These can be played individually, or linked together, giving you a campaign.
Even the box this set comes in is useful: it’s made of strong card, making it perfect for storing your disassembled scenery set between games.
Wherever Khorne's followers do battle they raise up Skull Altars – dread monuments from which to offer tribute to the Blood God and receive his blessings in return. Rising from the ground, the Skull Altar is formed out of the violent tributes heaped in offering for Khorne’s Throne.
Formed from the bones of those killed by an abhorrant’s insane magic, a Charnel Throne exudes madness and necrotic energies. They are the seats of power for Archregents and Ghoul Kings, blazing beacons to mordants, and structures of abject horror for the enemies of the Flesh-eater Courts
