Forge World Taking Orders For Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill

No, this isn’t a story for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles minis game. Though I can guarantee that I had this toy back when I was a kid. No, the Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill is for 40k, and you can order yours from Forge World now.

From the post:

A specialised transport vehicle, the Termite is capable of deploying a full squad of warriors onto the battlefield whilst bypassing enemy fortifications and sentries. It is capable of tunnelling rapidly through even the densest of materials at speeds comparable to surface transport craft, thanks to the grinding drill of the Termite which utilises a linked array of melta-cutters and phase-shield generators to aid in its progress. Once at its target location, it emerges onto the surface, or even directly into the lower level of macrofortifications, scattering nearby enemies with its melta-cutters before disgorging its deadly cargo.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill. Designed with practicality in mind, this vehicle eschews the aggressive look of many of its contemporaries – spending much of its time underground, this drill is more concerned with moving earth than striking fear into the enemy. As such, it is essentially a long capsule – able to transport up to 12 models – with 5 sets of tracks along its body, which serve both to pull it along the tunnels it digs and deposit rocks and earth behind it. At the rear is the engine assembly, with covers and exhaust, but the front is where the real fun is to be had – an enormous drill assembly takes up the whole of the vehicle’s front, with 4 rings of blades giving way to a large ring of grinders and crushers. 2 weapons can be mounted, either side of the drill assembly – you have the choice of included heavy flamers, volkite chargers or twin-linked bolters, and a hatch on the hull can be modelled closed or open.

The Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill comes as 39 components. Rules for fielding this model in games of Warhammer 40,000 and The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download.
