During recent engagements, UCM observers have reported the presence of a new Scourge heavy tank chassis with two distinct variants. Thankfully, these tanks forgo the familiar Slayer-type hull’s transport capacity, but this allows the mounting of larger weapons. Whether these are newly developed is unconfirmed, although AHQ has cited this as an example of the enemy’s capacity for innovation and rapid deployment of new assets while under the strain of invasion—a troubling prospect.
The Executioner mounts a slightly smaller version of the loathsome Bio-Mortar, a weapon previously only encountered aboard the massive Eradicator Chamelopod. This allows the Executioner to liquify the internal organs and flesh of emplaced enemy infantry from a distant, concealed position. Although it’s only been reported in combat for a short time, the Executioner is already a dreaded foe and has led to mass-desertions. Priority should be given to destroying Executioners before freedom of troop placement is entirely lost.
The Decapitator is especially unusual. Initially, observers thought this tank to be unarmed, if amazingly fast compared to other large skimmers. However, once the Decapitators closed to point-blank-range of their target, their central engine mount rolled 180 degrees to face forward. Although all speed was lost, that engine’s thrust could then be channelled into a laser-thin beam capable of slicing through virtually anything. Other heavy units, even the largest behemoths, are highly vulnerable to this new threat.
Contains 2 multi-part resin miniatures with parts to assemble as either the Executioner Heavy Tank or the Decapitator Heavy Tank.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled.
