The worst way to try and get your troops into battle is just having them walk there. Tac. Marines, Terminators, and Dreadnaughts aren’t known for breaking any land speed records, and they’re vulnerable to enemy fire as they approach. Sure, there’s Rhinos and Land Raiders, but those only hold a relatively small squad of guys. If you really want to get a bunch of Marines to where you need them, you might want to check out the Mastodon Heavy Transport.

This mass of ceramite and guns can get 40 Space Marines where you need them. It’s big enough to even carry Dreadnaughts. It’s armed with various weapons to take on whatever might try and stop it. Up top is a siege-sized melta array. You need the enemy walls breached? This is the vehicle for the job.

You can order yours now, with shipping to happen next week.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Do people really pay 300 pounds for these models?

      Never underestimate the amount of money that crazy British people spend on miniatures. 😉

        True, but FW prices are *twice* what they were a couple of years ago, and they’re weren’t cheap by any measure back then…
        No wonder so many smaller companies can draw sales away from GW, given that you can field two *entire armies* for the price of 1(!) FW model.

        Also, that model is ugly as sin.

          It looks like a giant version of the equally ugle Taurox model.
          I wonder if this was originally crafted for the Militarum Tempestus, before they released it would sell a lot more as a Horus Heresy model.

          This is what happens when GW isn’t knocking off US M113 APCs, M2 Bradley IFV’s, British WW1 Mark I tanks, French Char B1 tanks etc.

          You get weird steampunk gibberish designs.

        Yeah but at some point you cross over into life sized C3PO props and such.
