When things go badly for your SpecOps HADES team from ClearHorizon Miniatures then it’s about time to send in the Power Armoured Mark X Wraith Troopers to clean up the mess. See what you think of them…
So what exactly are these troopers…
“Each operator selected for the elite Wraith squads must have at least all four appendages and spine cybernetically replaced and enhanced. This allows the operator to directly link with the Wraith armor.
The operator’s head and torso are in the torso of the suit while an advanced sensor suite occupies the “head”. With the cybernetic uplink engaged the operator and suit act as one and are a deadly force on the battlefield.
Each squad will come with six Wraith-armored operators armed with a hyper-velocity, large-caliber rifles. One operator is armed with a heavy anti-material sniper/support weapon that can be used in either role. The weapons can select fire each round to provide silenced, normal, armor piecing, or high-explosive rounds.
HADES Wraith squads can be dropped from low-orbit and can spend months behind enemy lines causing havoc and disrupting even the largest forces.”
I think these are awesome. Flat out awesome. The idea of bringing in these suits from orbit and just smashing apart the enemy is an image I can’t quite shake out of my head and the actual sculpts look great too.
I love the idea that you play out a game where you send in the SpecOps troops to begin with, get enough intel on the insurgent compound, and then drop in the HADES Power Armour to clean up the enemy.
Will you be using them?
