Heavy Support Squads provide the Legiones Astartes with mobile, infantry-portable firepower sufficient to bring down hordes of enemy troops or smash armoured vehicles apart with withering hails of fire, combining devastating armaments with all the flexibility of a footsoldier. Volkite culverins emit scorching heat rays that burn through swathes of infantry, while versatile autocannons spit shells that shred troops and light vehicles alike. Lascannons are the most powerful laser weapons available to Legionaries, firing devastating beams to punch clean through tank armour.
This plastic upgrade kit can be used to equip Legionaries from the MKVI Tactical Squad set with powerful heavy weapons, suitable for use in a Legion Heavy Support Squad. The kit includes 10 volkite culverins, 10 autocannons, and 10 shoulder-mounted lascannons, along with arms suited to each weapon, allowing you to upgrade up to three Heavy Support Squads of 10 models, or six units of five models. Also included are four augury scanners which can be carried alongside a heavy weapon, allowing your Heavy Support Squads to detect and eliminate enemy units.
This upgrade kit comprises 160 plastic components and is designed to be assembled with the MKVI Tactical Squad set, which is sold separately. These components are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
