Forge World have gone big once again with the Mechanicum Ordinatus Ulator. If you want to blast something into a heap of slag then I think this is the way to do it. As the description of it says, it’s one of the most potent weapons in the Imperial arsenal…
“In the time of the Great Crusade the Ordinatus macro engines were rarer than even the Battle Titans of the Legio Titanica, and only a handful of Forge Worlds had the resources or indeed the doctrinal blessing and religious authority to produce or maintain such embodiments of the Omnissiah’s divine wrath.
Such was the sacredness of these machines above all others, that an entire subcult of the Mechanicum was devoted to their worship and propitiation.”
Volkite Culverins are this warmachines secondary armaments on the sides of the vehicle which are devastating in their own right but the main weapon is the Sonic Destructor which generates a ‘wave of annihilation’ which rips apart anything its way. I don’t imagine I’d want to see what it could do…
I’m not entirely won over by the design of this and I think it looks like something that would have appeared in Thunderbirds rather than finding a place in the Horus Heresy. I’m sure that others will feel very different about this and want it in their life but I think for me it just looks a bit too weird.
What do you think?
