Games Workshop is shining a spotlight on the upcoming Gladiator Model. Come take a look at the new Space Marines Tank coming soon.
When it comes to new tanks the Space Marines certainly have stepped up their game – at least in terms of options. With the Impulsor and Repulsor, and now the Gladiator, these new tanks are bringing their Repulsor Field technology to the tabletops in fancy new ways. Today, Games Workshop is showcasing the latest addition to the Repulsor Tech family – the Gladiator.
“The Gladiator is entering the arena of battle! Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl has been fervently continuing his quest to outfit the Primaris Space Marines with the best weapons, armour, and war machines in the galaxy. This brutal armoured behemoth is the first dedicated battle tank to emerge from his forges on Mars.”
A key feature – as mentioned above – is the Repulsor Field for this generation of tanks. We can also see that this tank is based off the Impulsor chassis but without the transport capacity. That extra space has been used to pack in more weapon systems!
And if you thought this relationship mirrored the Rhino/Predator one, well, maybe this infographic will finally prove that theory correct:
Just as the Impulsor is the Primaris Rhino upgrade, the Gladiator is the Primaris upgrade for the Predator.
One Kit, Three Variants
“The Gladiator kit can be assembled as one of three variants – Valiant, Reaper, or Lancer – and each comes with its own combination of formidable turret and sponson weaponry.”
Yeah. It looks good in red. I do want one for my Blood Angels. Maybe more than one. Maybe GW will bring back formations again and I’ll get a special boost for running 3 of them…
Also, aside from some great pictures of these kits, we also got an update on when the Gladiator will be available. These will be up for Pre-order on Saturday November 28th!
