Warhammer Fest is less than a week away. I’ve been showing you plenty of new products that’ll be available for the first time at the event, and there’s still more! Take a look at the latest unit to roll off the production lines of the Mechanicum…

Mechanicum Ursurax

The Mechanicum Ursurax are deadly close combat units that blast into the fray with their inbuilt jump packs, smashing and tearing at the enemy with Power Fists and Lightning Claws and burning them to cinders with their chest mounted Volkite Incinerators.

The Ursurax will be available first at Warhammer Fest, and soon after on the Forge World web store.

There’s just a few days left to get your tickets for Warhammer Fest, so get order yours now!

 

We got an early look at these guys all the way back in February at the Horus Heresy Weekender. Well now they are on their way to a tabletop near you after Warhammer Fest! This unit sounds pretty mean (at least in close combat) but it’s something the Ad Mech Heresy-Era list has been slightly lacking in – a fast moving Close Combat threat. These look bigger than a marine but smaller than their larger Battle-automata brothers. I think they will be a great addition to an Mechanicum army.

 

Killbots have a preset kill limit…

    Good gravy those are sweet!

  • cudgel

    Is it just me or do Mechanicum models all look like they come from a different game?

    • Daniel Lee George Zimmerman

      they all look like they are from war machine

      • rtheom

        Nah, their torsos would all be 3 times as wide.

      • georgelabour

        No…no I don’t see these as being designed by the teams each that made Final Fantasy IV, Mage Knight, or Battle Chasers so there’s no way they could possibly have possible come from War Machine,

    • georgelabour

      Since many of the automata are meant to have their origins in the whole iron-men vs men of gold bit from 40k’s age of strife then not having them fit the standard template aesthetic for most other imperial units is somewhat appropriate.

      • cudgel

        I do like them.

        • georgelabour

          Yes. They’re really showing us what a angry robot with a cannon in its chest can do.

          Now..we just need some Harlem Globetrotters..

    • Well, they kind of do.

  • Tim Kennedy

    It may be the way they are painted, but Im not so fussed on the visors, kind of old comic booky

    • jcdent

      The visors are really stupid on these. Thallax had the best ones. Or, like, you know, no visor is best visor.

  • pokemastercube .

    i have been waiting on these guys, glad to be only a short time away from owning them

  • An_Enemy

    I think they’re using the Thallax chassis so a little taller than a Terminator. These guys are cool, but Thallax are a bit more versatile.

  • Mr.Gold

    Hmmm… Volkite Incinerators – flamers with deflagrate anyone? (say goodbye to any squads with 5+ saves, just a shame it is for 30k not 40k…)

    • Blightstar

      Nah, 10″ S5 ap5 Assault 2 Deflagrate with special S6 ap2 melee-attack that can only be used against infantry/jump/jet.

  • euansmith

    There is a definite “raypunk” feel to these ‘bots; like something out of a re-imagined retro-future Flash Gordon serial.

  • Alistair Collins

    “The Mechanicum Ursurax are deadly close combat units that blast into the fray with their inbuilt jump packs”
    They don’t look inbuilt at all…
    Description not matching reality?

  • Anti-Gravity

    Hmm, these models really don’t match/fit the aesthetic of all the other Mechanicum models imo. Still cool looking, just look a little off when compared to the other Mechanicus stuff – the visors and claws are the culprits, it feels like.
