Forge World’s Astraeus Super-Heavy Tank Pre-Orders Begin

November 18, 2017 by brennon

Forge World has now opened up pre-orders for its Astraeus Super-Heavy Tank, the first big monster of a vehicle for the Primaris Space Marines.

Astraeus Super-Heavy Tank #1

Here's what they had to say about the tank itself, which is ridiculous but I'm sure a lot of people out there do like this beast...

"The Astraeus is a super-heavy tank, similar in form to the smaller Repulsor transport in use by the newly created Primaris Space Marines. It mounts a formidable array of weapons, designed around a pair of immense macro-accelerator cannon.

Providing a stable firing platform for these temperamental weapons are banks of enhanced repulsor plates, allowing the inexorable advance of the Astraeus to continue unhindered by hostile terrain or the vain defiance of the foe, while its layered void shields can shrug off even the most devastating weapon strikes. The Astraeus is a symbol of the Imperium’s might, unbowed by the dawning of a bloody new millennium and unbroken by the onslaught of its foes."

Astraeus Super-Heavy Tank #2

I can't help but think that it would have just been nicer with tracks, but then again I suppose they have to do something different with the Space Marines rather than just rehashing some of their older vehicles.
