The Kratos Heavy Assault Tank is based on an Ancient Terran pattern fielded during the Unification of Old Earth, redesigned after the Emperor's treaty with the Lords of Mars to serve as the spearhead of the Great Crusade, a line-breaker and foe hammer. This grinding battle tank is all but impervious to enemy fire, and its steady, inexorable advance provides an indomitable core to any assault by the Legiones Astartes, enforced by a barrage of overwhelming firepower.
This multipart plastic kit builds one Kratos Heavy Assault Tank, a nigh-impenetrable war machine bristling with heavy armaments. This impressive vehicle can be built with one of three powerful turret weapons – the versatile Kratos battlecannon, tank-busting melta blast-gun, or searing volkite cardanelle. It also sports a co-axial autocannon, a pair of hull-mounted guns – autocannons, heavy bolters, lascannons, or volkite calivers – and a separate pair of sponson weapons – heavy bolters, heavy flamers, lascannons, or volkite culverins.
The kit also includes components to upgrade the Kratos Heavy Assault Tank with a pintle-mounted weapon – a havoc launcher, heavy bolter, heavy flamer, multi-melta, or a combi-weapon with five configurations (bolter, flamer, melta, plasma, or volkite) – as well as a searchlight, a dozer blade, a hunter-killer missile, and a number of cosmetic options, such as towing hooks and a choice of a Space Marine gunner, spotter, or closed hatch.
This kit comprises 233 plastic components, and is supplied with a Legiones Astartes Vehicle Transfer Sheet containing 44 optional markings and icons for the Sons of Horus and Imperial Fists Legions. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
