The newest Ad Mech vehicle is coming and it has some cool battlefield tricks… Come take a look at the Skitarii’s big hitter:
WS3 BS4 S5 I2 A1 HP3 Vehicle (Walker)
FA12 SA12 RA11
Comes with interesting Equipment options, for example the Icarus Array instead of the Eradication Beamer oder Neutron Laser. The walkers have energy shilds (6++) which increase by 1 for every walker within 4″ (max. 4++)

Eradication Beamer (Dunecrawler only, Basic weapon): 0″- 9″: 10/1, 9″ – 18″: 8/3 blast, 18″ – 36″: 6/5 large blast
Neutron Laser: 48″ 10/1 blast, concussive

There are 6 Doctrines. At the beginning of each movement phase you may use one of them (one use)
