The Mechanicum just got a new Robot to play with – The Domitar Battle-Automata is up for Pre-order NOW!
via Forge World
The Domitar Class Battle-automata was a sophisticated variant of the ancient Conqueror pattern. Larger than the more common Castellax alongside which it would serve, the Domitar was also swifter, designed to cross the open battlefield at speed, and built expressly to crash into the enemy with shattering force.
To this end the Domitar’s shock-protected and armoured frame was itself a weapon, while its blows were amplified to colossal proportions by the Battle-automata’s inbuilt gravitational hammers, allowing it to pulverise battle tanks and, as it would later prove, even Legiones Astartes Dreadnoughts in combat. As a line-breaker, the Domitar was unparalleled in the Mechanicum’s arsenal, and its tactical flexibility was further augmented with a missile launcher armed with a variety of munitions.
The Domitar Class Battle-automata is equipped with a pair of graviton hammers and a missile launcher. Optional parts are included to mode the missile launcher’s housing open or closed.

The new Domitar Battle-Automata were teased at the Horus Heresy Weekender earlier this month and they are out now for Pre-Order. They are larger than the Mechanicum Castellax but not as large as the Mechanicum Thanatar. This new Robot looks like it fits perfectly inbetween the two in terms of both size and price. If your wallet was trying to hold out before starting a new Mechanicum force don’t let it see these new Battle-Automata from Forge World!
