The Kharybdis is here and it is easily one of my favorite Forge World kits of all time!

Drop pod, flyer, rogue machine spirit, all of these things accurately describe this gigantic model.

This kit has been a joy to assemble, and is very well designed from its locking leg joints that can actually support it’s weight to its super detailed exterior.

If this is a sign of how Forge World will be designing their bigger kits from now on, look for more amazing things in the near future.

Plus it even has rules now as well!

The Kit

Kharybdis Assault Claw is available for 145 pounds (~$236) from Forge World.

Employed by many Legions as their primary ship-to-ship assault craft, the Kharybdis is a monstrous drop pod capable of carrying large assault forces through the void and mounting significant firepower to blast a path through defending small craft.

As a fully operational dropship, Kharybdis assault claws also serve as orbit-to-surface transports, a role that allows them to use the firepower of their storm launchers and melta cutters to scour clean their chosen landing zone before disembarking their deadly cargo.

Some aggressive commanders employ the Kharybdis as an effective tank hunter, ramming enemy armour in daring low-altitude attack runs.

Complete multi-part resin kit designed by Will Hayes.
