Ursarax 1

If you manage to see the Ursarax coming, it’ll be the last thing you see! Designed for lightning fast, devastating attacks, the Mechanicum Ursarax tear through enemy infantry, and they’re ready to join your army today.

Mechanicum Ursarax £30

99550108154_Ursurax01

The Ursarax were developed as a heavy, rapid-moving close combat unit. Using a fusion of existing technologies sacred to the Mechanicum, they are formidable, even monstrous, killing engines.

Like the Thallax, Ursarax are thralls rather than servitors. Selected from suitable human candidates for conversion, their living components retain a consciousness and dim recollection of their former humanity, providing them with superior tactical abilities and the instincts to kill. Each Ursarax’s frame is outfitted with a powerful, chest mounted Volkite Incinerator – a weapon deadly at range, but decidedly lethal in close combat – and pairs of armour crushing power fists or flesh shredding lightning claws.

This kit includes three complete Ursarax models, each of which can be equipped with power fists or lightning claws.

Rules for using Ursarax Cohorts in Mechanicum armies in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum – Taghmata Army List.

This is a multi-part resin kit that builds three complete models. Three 40mm round bases are included.

Ursarax Cohort £90

99020187217_UrsaraxCohort01

A cohort of Ursarax can contain up to nine of these deadly, techno-warriors. This collection includes three sets of Mechanicum Ursarax to total a full cohort of nine Ursarax, each of which can be equipped with power fists or lightning claws.

Mechanicum Shock Assault Force £108

99020187218_MechanicumShockAssaultForce01

Ursasax were designed to push forward and engage enemies in rapid succession, but their advance must be supported by other units to push the enemy back and hold ground, and crack the armoured targets.

This collection brings together a cohort of three Ursarax, a cohort of three Thallax, and a Domitar Battle-automata – a destructive core force for a Mechanicum army.

 

These Ursarax are billed as fast moving shock troopers. They pack a mean set of options in close combat and also have the chest mounted Volkite Incinerator which is no slouch. These guys are Ideal for moving up quick to tie-up enemy units or engage infantry and tear them to shreds while the larger Battle-Automata cover them with the big guns. The Ursarax also fill a nice slot size wise with those 40mm bases. So if you’re looking for something to form a good counter-punch or a shock attack unit for your Taghmata Army then pick up some Ursarax!

 

The Ursarax are more machine than man now…

  • Tiernoc

    Oh Goody, even more weird faux mechanicum units.

    • Jonathon West

      What? Faux? You must not read the books much.

    • Onlinemph

      I am quite interested as to why you think these are “faux” mechanicum.

      These models and others like them have been plastered all over forgeworld books for a long time now.

      • Farseerer

        Some people are best ignored. Especially whiny, poorly informed attention seekers.

      • Severius_Tolluck

        he may be meaning since these are automata instead of actual brains in buckets?

        • Onlinemph

          Well, he is misinformed if that is his problem.

          As you can see from that picture, they still have, their skulls and brains within. Most likely augmented, but intact nonetheless.

          • Tiernoc

            I definitely WAS misinformed. This appeared at first glance to be more plain old cybernetic robots, but “Mech version” of assault marines. Consider me corrected and contrite!

          • Crevab

            It’s even in the article, silly.

            :p

          • wibbling

            I always got the impression they were made from failed/injured legionnaires.

          • Iconoc1ast

            Or the stolen remains after the ad mech pick the battlefields clean.

          • Alpharius

            Your impression on this, as on so many other things, is way off base.

  • OolonColluphid

    More Volkite Spam for the Omnissiah. Though an expensive upgrade, double Power Fist’s are nothing to laugh at either.

  • Crevab

    Yay hug bots

  • Alpharius

    Decent anti-tank unit, but pretty awful as a close combat unit. Definitely the weakest FA choice, but I like the Samus heads.
