Horus Heresy: Scorpius Missile Tank
Rugged and well-suited to high-intensity operations, the Scorpius missile tank is favoured across the Legiones Astartes as a source of manoeuvrable artillery support. Often collectively referred to as 'Whirlwinds', tanks mounted with multi-missile launcher systems are a vital part of any Legion's war machine, providing long-range covering fire and trench-breaking barrages. The Scorpius itself only entered service shortly before the Horus Heresy, created at the behest of the Space Wolves Legion in a campaign against fortified xenos bastion-cities ‚Äì where its performance quickly saw it approved for widespread use.
This multipart plastic kit builds one Legion Scorpius, a mobile artillery piece built on the Deimos-pattern chassis. This tank's turret-mounted missile system is loaded with rotary racks of explosive rockets, ready to saturate whole battlefield zones with a whirlwind of shrapnel and flames. Its launchers can be assembled at a variety of angles, to suggest a devastating volley of direct fire or an arcing salvo of munitions that will wipe out all but the heaviest infantry.
In addition to its twin-linked bolter and smoke launchers, this kit includes components to upgrade the Legion Scorpius with an extra pintle-mounted weapon ‚Äì a havoc launcher, heavy bolter, heavy flamer, multi-melta, or a combi-weapon with five configurations (bolter, flamer, melta, plasma, or volkite) ‚Äì as well as a searchlight, a dozer blade, a hunter-killer missile, and cosmetic options like towing hooks, sigils, and a choice of a Space Marine gunner, spotter, or closed hatch.
This kit comprises 125 plastic components, and is supplied with a Legiones Astartes Vehicle Transfer Sheet containing 44 optional markings and icons for the Sons of Horus and Imperial Fists Legions. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly ‚Äì we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
