Warhammer 40K BREAKING: Updated Ad-Mech Belisarius Cawl Confirmed

2 Minute Read

The Ad Mech’s big boss Belisarius Cawl is back with an updated set of rules for 9th edition. Take a look.

This image from a miniature assembly guide has been doing the rounds. It appears to be from a new repacked  Adeptus Mechanicus Belisarius Cawl.  It is all over Reddit, and various forums.

Updated Belisarius Cawl

Some items from the updated statlines& weapons:

  • Statline is unchanged
  • Solar Atomiser changes from D:D3″ to D:3
  • Arc Scourge changes from AP-1 to AP-2
  • Omnissian Axe changes from S+1 to S+2


Minor tweaks on all of these. In all cases, Cawl got improvements to his weapon stats. Slight increases in AP, and replacing random damage with fixed damage seems to be the way of 9th Edition. We choose to play a game with dice, but we hate randomness… go figure.

In any case you take the big Ad Mech bossman  becasue of his special rules, not his stats, but it’s nice to see him getting a little better in the killing department.

Now that I have your attention – I want you all to take a close look at his Mechadendrite Hive (weapon #3 in the image up top).  I think Cawl’s preferred melee technique is to step on an opponent’s toes with his mecha-spider foot,  wrap his tentacle arm around their waist, then go for the kill with his set of keys! No one trains to defend against that!



All hail the Omnissiah!
