Description

Once the Arcus strike tank was one of the most advanced support platforms available to the Space Marine Legions, but for reasons long since lost to the past, the Adeptus Mechanicus holds the pattern as a slight against the Omnissiah and refuses to produce or repair such vehicles. Without the specialised knowledge of the Machine God’s adepts, the advanced launchers of the Arcus have slowly failed and been replaced with more common rotary launchers and stocks of its rare warheads have dwindled. Now it is used by the Space Marine Chapters that retain examples of this rare pattern as a fast strike tank, racing it forwards to saturate a target area with incendiary devices of a more commonplace provenance and using its renowned speed to escape unscathed, enabling them to clear otherwise redoubtable bunkers and fortresses with brutal efficiency.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Legion Sicaran Arcus Strike Tank. Sharing much of its details with the more common Sicaran Battle Tank, based as it is on the same chassis, this pattern is differentiated by the dual rotary missile launchers that adorn the turret. These are supplied with ammunition by dual curved missile feeds, with a sensor array at the front of the turret providing vital targeting data for the onslaught of explosives. Included are a wealth of other armaments with 2 heavy bolters and 2 lascannon on the sponsons, featuring targeters, ammo drums and shields, and heavy bolter mounted on the hull to the left of the hull’s hatch.

This resin kit comes as 44 components.

The Legion Sicaran Arcus Strike Tank is a Heavy Support choice for the Space Marine Legion army list found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes – Age of Darkness Army List book, and an Elites choice with the following keywords in Warhammer 40,000: Imperium, Adeptus Astartes . Rules for fielding the model in both game systems are available as a PDF download.

Not too sure how these screen grabbes will work.
