Destroyers often sport weaponry much larger than their small size suggests, offering admirals the ability to compete with any enemy vessel in a small and lithe frame. Quick and decisive hunting is synonymous with the Shaltari method of warfare, so it's no surprise that the Chromium, Mercury and Cobalt are often seen in Shaltari fleets.
The Chromium is unusual in that it features a thermal lance cannon, a weapon very similar to the Burnthrough weapons of more primitive races. Where as the Mercury class destroyer features an extremely rare weapon type known as the Pulse Ioniser. These weapons establish an energetic link with the target at close ranges, the potential power of the weapon increasing in relation to the density of the target’s armour, ensuring that nothing is safe from its onslaught. The Cobalt class homeship is essentially a smaller version of the more ubiquitous Emerald class mothership. Its only purpose is to physically convey Shaltari ground forces to the battlespace, from which they can be teleported to the surface via the Voidgate network.
This set contains 3 Shaltari Destroyers, all able to be built as either Chromiums, Mercuries, or Cobalts!
If you like winding arms and strange, fully 3D designs, look no further! The three Destroyers are built in very different ways, making some weird looking ships! The Chromium has a big burnthrough laser - a rare occurrence for Shaltari. Meanwhile the Mercury is a bit stranger still, its Pulse Ioniser Bank giving a lethal Mauler weapon which rolls to Lock equal to the target's Armour. Finally the Cobalt trades in much of its offensive weaponry (although not all) for the ability to launch ground assets - it's a mini-mothership!
Contains 3 resin miniatures and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.
