Forge World has some new toys for the Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii – Secutarri Hoplites & Peltasts are here!

via Forge World

The towering God Machines of the Adeptus Titanicus can destroy companies of tanks, and bring fortifications to ruin, but if the enemy can get close enough even a lowly trooper can cause the Titan great harm. That’s where the Secutarii Titan Guard come in…

Secutarri Peltasts

Today you can order the brand new Secutarii Hoplites and Secutarii Peltasts Upgrade Kits. These kits each upgrade a unit of Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii to be powerfully armed warriors of the Mechanicus, dedicated to defending their Titan charges with their advanced weapons and their very lives!

Secutarii Hoplites go into battle armed with Arc Lances and Mag-inverter shields, weapons that enable them to hunt war machines and vehicles that would threaten their charges. Akin the arc mauls of the Skitarii Clade officers, and the far larger of the mighty Cerastus Knight-Lancers, the arc lance inflicts damage through short range blasts of coruscating energy that can burn through xeno technology and render mute the machine spirit of even the most heavily armoured vehicle. Mag-inverter shields provide the copious power needed by arc lances, and resists blows which would otherwise slay its bearer instantly through utilising a powerful and sophisticated inversion generator at the shield’s core.

SECUTARII PELTASTS UPGRADE SET £23.50

Secutarii Peltasts seek targets of flesh and bone that would attempt harm on the great God-Machines of the Legio Titanicus. Armed with a Galvanic-caster, the Secutarii Peltasts are equipped for all manner of targets. This electro-galvanically driven, multi-function projectile launcher has multiple firing modes that may fire rapid bursts of low velocity, razor-edged metallic flechettes; attack concealed targets with retina-burning ignis charges; fire an armour-piercing inert slug-shot at supersonic velocities; or even fire a barrage of blind canister shot to confuse and disorientate the enemy.

I like the look of these models. They have some pretty interesting options when it comes to weapon modes. The Galvanic-casters remind me of the special issue ammo from Sternguard/Deathwatch Kill Teams. Used defensively these guys can really hold the line – plus the ability to give Super-heavy units Shrouded is pretty useful too!

 

That is some scary looking bubble wrap!
