Forge World have once again decided bigger is most decidedly better and unleashed the Thanatar Siege-Automata on the tabletop. See what you think of this rather brilliant looking addition to the Mechanicum’s arsenal…
The Thanatar is meant to, as you might imagine, siege things! It has a Hellex pattern plasma mortar that will be lobbing huge gobs of plasma over the walls of defensive outposts and melting all inside. I’m sure it could do a number on the actual walls themselves as well. They are also incredibly well armoured despite their back line role in the fighting and small arms fire has no effect whatsoever on it’s frame.
As you can tell it’s also rather bloody huge! It stands at least another miniature above it’s closest rival in terms of height and looks awesome for it. Forge World do make some rather amazing stuff and while it’s cool to think about Titans I think something as big as this at this scale is even better. It’s certainly more wield-able on the tabletop!
Thanks to deaddave for poking us in the direction of this one!
