Forge World have released a new tile for their Realm of Battle 40k terrain range. Take cover in this Primus Redoubt and use its heavy weaponry to take out Titans.
The Primus Redoubt is a super-heavy emplacement usually built by the Imperium to defend vital locations such as cities or foundries. They can be armed with a variety of heavy weapons that are more usually found on void ships, powered by a generator deep beneath the main emplacement structure. Protected by its heavy walls and a force dome, the Primus Redoubt can withstand practically anything thrown at it.
I showed this and its experimental rules to Khrystan, our resident 40k rules buff, and he described it as being one of the best buildings and most cost effective (points wise) pieces in the game.
This is not surprising as the double-barreled laser turbo weapon it can field fires off two large blast templates and gets a bonus to shooting at large targets. I wasn’t joking when I said this thing can pose a serious threat to Titans. Of course, all this comes at a price, for if the enemy manages to make the Redoubt explode, you will end up placing the Apocalyptic Mega-Blast marker as its generators blow.
In total, this is a truly impressive terrain piece that will help set the scene for what would have to be an incredibly epic siege battle. I can almost imagine a Titan, surrounded by other large vehicles, advancing as a row of these blast away at them.
