Kataphron Destroyers/ Breachers Pre-Orders


Up today for pre-orders are the new Cult Mechanicus Kataphron Battle Servitors box set, allowing you to make either the ranged Destroyers, or the the close combat oriented Breachers. Rules for these are in the White Dwarf, and we have been seeing them extensively throughout the week. 

Games Workshop
Adeptus Mechanicus Kataphron Battle Servitors - Destroyers/Breachers
$58


Destroyers
Completely severed from concepts such as ethics, morality, or even thought, the Kataphron Destroyer is nothing more than a living weapon, wielded by Tech-Priests to further the data-hungry march of the Machine God’s chosen emissaries. Absolutely covered in incredibly powerful weaponry, the Kataphron Destroyers are the Adeptus Mechanicus’ scorched earth policy - nothing will be left of their targets but molten sludge.

Almost entirely cybernetic, the Kataphron Destroyers feature three interchangeable heads, three servitor assemblies, three interchangeable exhausts and a HUGE array of weapons: arc rifles, torsion cannons, arc claws, hydraulic claws, plasma culverin assemblies, heavy grav cannon assemblies, phosphor blaster assemblies and three cognis flamer assemblies. Twenty-four weapon options in total!

Breachers
Much larger and far more powerful than the servitors used by the rest of the Imperium, Kataphron Breachers are not so much born as assembled. Fulfilling the role of living shield and battering ram, they are used by Tech-Priests to smash apart enemy lines and fortifications on their insatiable quest for technology to assimilate. Utterly deadly at close-quarters, their heavily-armoured torsos and covered tracks carve a brutal swathe through anything in their path.

These miniatures truly capture the techno-centric nature of the Adeptus Mechanicus; only half a head and a part of their torso remains human. Included are three track assemblies(with optional armour and mud guards for Breachers), three sets of Breacher heads and torso armour, three interchangeable exhausts and a HUGE array of weapons: arc rifles, torsion cannons, arc claws, hydraulic claws, plasma culverin assemblies, heavy grav cannon assemblies, phosphor blaster assemblies and three cognis flamer assemblies. Twenty-four weapon options in total!



This multi-part plastic kit contains an impressive 157 components, with which you can make three Adeptus Mechanicus Battle Servitors, either Kataphron Destroyers or Kataphron Breachers. Supplied are three Citadel 60mm Round Bases.

  1. What to do with all the extra weapons? I've been thinking of the heavy arc weapons on Skitarii but they might be a bit too large.

    1. i wanted to magnetise between the two different builds but dont think that is possible. That said i love these models so might just get two boxes!

    1. And interestingly enough I don't see the bulky rule with them.

  3. Am I the only one who's bummed that you can't buy one for a Skitarii squad? Like a heavy weapon team?

    1. GW made a vow during 3rd edition that they would exclude heavy weapons from the troops of new armies. (Space Marine armies have been the exception but they have always had heavy weapons for troops, so they don't count.)

      Anyway, the Skitarii special weapons are almost as good as heavy weapons, so no loss.

    2. Yes.

      Doesn't even fit fluff anyway.

    3. like that has ever stopped anyone. if people want to do something it happens. fluff be damned. (besides fluff comes in two varieties official and fanmade. only official effects official events, fanmade can be used anywhere a friendly game is played, so it not fitting fluff is irrelevant)

  4. Play-tested a bit with these guys. Wraithknights are lol-easy to get rid of with Kataphrons.

    People need to get over their fear of the D-weapon Eldar. It's an overpriced, low-model-count army with very little output, and is easily countered by some of the most commonly playable units in the game.

    1. When the new Space Marines arrive next month the Eldar will have even more to worry about.

    2. and you need to be a little less insensitive....i don't see either happening soon

      Delete
    3. So if you see a new player using Knights and getting smeared by eldar you'll tell him to buy these guys as well huh? Eldar and d weapons can be devastating against some armies more than others

    4. How about csm? They're still lol-easy for them?

    5. Honestly, CSM are lol-easy for most armies.
