Default Thanatar Siege Automata Available for Pre Order

Thanatar Siege Automata



The Thanatar is a heavy Siege-automata, designed as a mobile artillery platform rather than a general battle unit. It is armed with a Hellex pattern plasma mortar, a terrifying weapon able to launch dense spheres of blazing plasma on arcing trajectories over defensive barriers and into the heart of enemy fortifications, incinerating anything in their blast radius with a liquid tide of sun-hot fire.

The Thanatar’s frame, built to accommodate the huge weapon and the power systems and fuel reserves required to supply it, is considerably larger than even the hulking Castellax. Its frame is also heavily reinforced, both to withstand the stresses of firing its principal weapon and protect it from incoming attacks. This factor, alongside the use of an atomantic shielding array, make Thanatars notoriously durable. Such is their resilience that Thanatars are beyond the ability of most small arms, no matter how advanced, to harm.

The Thanatar Seige-automata is a complete multi-part resin kit, designed by Will Hayes. This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Monday 30th June.

It does look pretty awesome.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

For those wondering, Thanatar are beastly Heavy Support Monstrous Creatures, with 4 T8 Wounds and 2+/5++ (versus Shooting, 2+/6++ in CC) putting them out of the reach of most things short of Power Fists. That you can take them in Maniples of up to 5 makes them just as naughty.

The obvious thing about it is its Plasma Mortar - a S8 AP2 Ordnance Blast rerolling successful cover saves, with only limited range.

These things tear apart the Astartes, but they're a hefty expenditure, and having a 12" minimum range means no shoot+assault with it, but it does have a Back up TL'd Mauler Bolt Cannon - a Heavy 3 S6 AP3 Pinning weapon, so even then the Legions do not get off the hook so lightly.

It has range 48 if it stays still, it's halved if it moves.

Just checked the price, for £70 quid that is a steal, with p&p that works out not much more than a knight in euros I must possess 1

To keep it accurate, 12-48/12-24. The Minimum range means unless you roll boxcars for your assault move, you're unlikely to be able to shoot your mortar and assault in the same turn.
