Blast your foes apart with the Primaris Repulsor Executioner and Skorpius Disintegrator and get your Adeptus Mechanicus infantry to battle in the Skorpius Dunerider! We take a look at these three new vehicles for the Imperium – all available to pre-order next weekend.

Primaris Repulsor Executioner
If you thought the standard Repulsor was covered in guns, you haven’t seen anything yet! The Repulsor Executioner is a full-on battle tank – a Heavy Support choice that exchanges some of a Repulsor’s normal transport capacity for a murderously powerful turret weapon. If you want to obliterate armoured targets, equip your Executioner with a heavy laser destroyer, which is essentially a gigantic souped-up lascannon!
Alternatively, if you want a more flexible (but still hard-hitting) primary weapon, go with the macro plasma incinerator.
Those weapons hit hard enough as it is, but if you really want to pour on the pain, you can use its Aquilon Optics to fire them twice!
That’s not even all – the Executioner is coated with secondary weapon systems that complement its main gun nicely. It’s fair to say that, with a Repulsor Executioner in your army, your opponents will soon learn to fear your Shooting phase!
Designed to carry up to 10 infantry models, the Skorpius Dunerider is a Dedicated Transport vehicle for your Adeptus Mechanicus army. With a Move characteristic of 12”, Duneriders enable you to swiftly get your close-range specialists – such as units of Sicarians or Electro-Priests – into positions to threaten the enemy lines.
The Dunerider also has some infantry-shredding firepower in the form of two cognis heavy stubbers and a twin cognis heavy stubber. What’s more, its Hover Platform ability ensures that you’ll be firing on the move with maximum effect.
If it’s mobile firepower you’re after, you’ll want the Skorpius Disintegrator instead. In addition to a trio of cognis heavy stubbers, it comes with a prow-mounted disruptor missile launcher that packs a considerable (and highly explosive) wallop.
The Disintegrator’s primary weapon comes in the form of a ferrumite cannon, which is an excellent option for blasting chunks from enemy vehicles, monsters or elite, multi-Wound infantry.
If you like, you can swap this weapon out for a belleros energy cannon. It may not quite match the hitting power of the ferrumite cannon, but it more than makes up for it with an increased rate of fire and even the ability to target units it can’t see!
The Skorpius Disintegrator’s enclosed hull also provides it with an extra point of Toughness over the Dunerider, adding to its durability and making it a great option for a Heavy Support choice.
You won’t have long to wait to get your hands on these awesome new vehicles – they’re up for pre-order on Saturday 29th June (Warhammer Day!), along with Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse and a host of other releases and money-saving Detachments. Check out our preview article to see what you can look forward to.
