Games Workshop has a new vehicle available for your Horus Heresy army; the Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator! Preorder now, shipping next week.
Uniquely crafted to the needs of the Magos leading the expeditionary force, Macrocarid Explorators first saw use as frontline combat and mobile command vehicles in the early days of the Great Crusade. Heavily armoured and equipped with the Mechanicum’s signature technologies and weapons, they are now pressed into service on both sides of the cataclysmic battles of The Horus Heresy.
Macrocarid Explorators can transport Magos’ or their units of deadly automata across the battlefield, cutting through any opponent foolish enough to come close with powerful weapons enhanced by augury scanners. Their heavy armour makes them as durable as the Legiones Astartes Land Raider, with the addition of extensive self-repair systems.
The Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator includes optional weapons for the vehicle’s sponsons and hull mounting points. A pair of lascannon or two irradiation engines may be fitted to its sponson mounts, whilst a mauler bolt-cannon and a graviton imploder are available as hull mounted weapons.
