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.
Adeptus Mechanicus Kataphron Battle Servitors - Destroyers/Breachers
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!
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.
