The next wave of Crucible Guard releases hit this week, bringing a Colossal new Crucible Guard Jack and a couple of support solos to back up your alchemically charged army.
That’s right, it’s time to go through the Crucible–the Crucible Guard that is. Privateer Press has another wave of releases for the new Theme Force, and they look amazing. Joining Rockettroopers and Aces we have an occult solo, a rare thing in a Crucible Guard army, a mechanic, and a colossal new Warjack. Let’s take a look.

An arcanist, scholar, and experienced sellsword, Eilish Garrity of the Black River Irregulars mercenary company now walks a dangerous road to power. Those who confront him in battle discover that his scholarly demeanor belies his potent arcane skill—which some suggest was earned through nefarious means. He insists he is wielding his power for the greater good, though it seems a dark path he treads.
The Crucible Guard has a small but dedicated corps of mechaniks that maintain and repair the army’s vital warjack complement. These soldiers are cross-trained for combat, as they must often affect repairs in the midst of battle. Outfitted with sophisticated equipment, these mechaniks brave incoming fire to reach damaged warjacks on the verge of destruction back to fighting shape.
Matching the size of other modern colossals, the Vulcan is no less than a rolling alchemical arsenal. Sloshing hundred-gallon vats within its structure allow it to unleash an array of alchemical attacks. A series of dispersal nozzles along the chassis can blanket a large area in a debilitating fog of toxic gas. Its primary weapon, the Aqua Mortuum rocket, leaves trails of alchemical poison in the air and detonates with a burst of lingering toxins, while its smaller vitriolic deflagrators hose down squadrons with concentrated, high-molarity acid.
