What makes this really scary is if you roll a 8 and above: It’s understanding and playing within a rule set and attempting rulees be as competitive as possible within that structure. Like the Macharius Heavy Tankit resembles an oversized Leman Russ Battle Tankhank while the Macharius resembles a Russ that has been cut and extended tules the middle, the Malcador looks like someone at Forge World made a Russ out of silly putty and stretched it.

Your ad here, right now: The Defender’s ability to put out 21 Heavy Bolter shots in addition to sporting a Demolisher cannon is incredible, but when I saw that the Annihilator variant could field twin lascannons and autocannon sponsons I also drooled a little bit. As Danny so eloquently put it, you can always burn them with fire!

In addition, apparently Big Bobby G. As a result, they are rarely deployed amongst the Imperial Guard’s armored regiments. Is flame weaponry a better deal for Guard armies than other armies?

It doesnt make sense but its easier, so for most people it works. If you are already a member then feel free to login now. The Malcador Infernus tank can be outfitted with a variety of upgrades and attachments, such as Camouflage Netting, Extra Armour Plating, an improved communications system, a Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher, a pintle-mounted Heavy Stubber, rough terrain modifications, track guards, a Searchlight, and Smoke Launchers.


Perhaps a Militarum tempestus detachment to augment your forces and let you go seek out some key targets. While not yet in common use at that timeImperial logisticians had projected that its services were likely to be required in ever greater numbers Oh how they are wrong given the circumstance of the 41st Millenniumespecially where Loyalist Solar Auxilia were called upon to fight the Traitor Legiones Astartes and the heavy armored vehicles they had ready access to.

Due to this fact, it’s rather surprising the Kriegers don’t love them. In retrospect, this was not one of their smarter designs though in their defense a few real world tank designers did this as well.

Creed returns from his special mission. Other then the numerous problems as listed above, there is also the consideration on how much this tank gets treated in-universe as well. During the 41st Millennium the Minotaur is a rare relic of war that very few will ever see, with the number of Forge Worlds capable of producing them having dropped malcwdor over the last millennia. Unfortunately, its drive was always temperamental at best, and between the loss of knowledge that occurred during the Horus Heresy and ten thousand years of repair and attempted retrofitting, the Malcador of the 41st Millennium is no faster than any other tank and prone to engine malfunction, rles in-game as a fifty-fifty chance of being malcadod immobilized rather than slowed down by engine damage.

I’m leaning towards avoiding the Annihilator Malcador at the moment anyway I won’t be buying one for a while ruled so I have time to change my mind Does anyone know how easy they are to magnetise? Arkaniss and librisrouge like this.

So you might expect it to draw most of the anti-tank fire, which, as I pointed out earlier, is good. Time spent shooting at it just means your chimeras will live longer to get troops in position.

Mqlcador used to be quite good during the Horus Heresy, as its advanced engine made it Fast, and it could mount a Demolisher Cannon and fire its main cannon at full BS and make a Flat Out move.

As you already know, the Malcador’s main engine plant, a thermic combustor design that is a variant for military use of a common pattern used in industrial and agricultural machinery across the human-settled galaxy, is underpowered in maocador to the Malcador’s sheer size and mass.

Both have some great benefits and some weaknesses and are more than capable of spearheading infantry assaults while also providing some monster overwatch benefits. That said, you can definitely get more offensive output by using the Hellhounds over the Malcador as you could get 4 of them for the points.

The Infernus or the Defender would be a great choice for spearheading infantry assaults. So with deep striking units like that, you need to create a buffer.

Though malcadod has a longer range and higher strength than the mini-Inferno Cannon used by the Hellhoundit has the unreliable engine compared to the Fast Hellhounda hull-mounted primary weapon which is disastrously impractical especially for such a close range weapon and has a tendency to explode when catastrophically damaged.

Back to top 9 Arkaniss Posted 09 May – This can mitigate the design’s inherent problems and its firepower and considerable protection can make it a valuable asset to Imperial forces for both offensive and defensive engagements. Malcador Heavy Tanks are Gen 1 Baneblades.
