New 40k Transports Available to Order From Forge World

Walking into battle is so lame. Better to ride in style. The folks at Forge World feel the same way, so they've got a pair of new transportation options for you for your 40k armies. There's the Legion Dreadnaught Drop Pod, which is pretty standard like you've seen before. Then there's the Mechanicum Ordinatus Aktaeus, something that would look rather familiar to any Ninja Turtles fans out there.

From the website:

The Aktaeus is the most recognisable of the Ordinatus Minoris created and operated by the Mechanicum, a super-heavy transport designed to carve a path through the stony heart of a world to deliver its cargo of warriors to the centre of the battlefield. Known to the armies of the Emperor as the Imperial Mole, this vehicle is employed primarily as a siege engine capable of rendering even the most formidable fortifications pointless by burrowing beneath them.

The Ordinatus Aktaeus is part transport, part heavy-duty war machine! This engine of destruction allows you to deliver a battalion of troops right to the heart of the enemy, unleashing a deadly seismic quake to cover their advance before providing a blistering hail of supporting firepower. You’ll be able to field yours mounted upon the Ordinatus platform, or send the Aktaeus Earth-breaker into battle separately, making it incredibly flexible. Nigh-indestructible when faced with conventional weapons, it’ll make an impact on even the fiercest battlefields the Age of Darkness has to offer.

This massive kit is a pleasure for a dedicated hobbyist. Once you've constructed your Ordinatus Aktaeus, you’ll be able to freely remove the main body of the drill from the platform for painting and gaming. It’s sure to make an incredible centrepiece to any Mechanicum army, and a worthy companion to your other Ordinatus war machines.
