Engine War – Requisition Approved

GW is showing us some fantastic new models from the upcoming Psychic Awakening book!

This article was originally published on the Warhammer-community site.

Engine War is the seventh chapter of the Psychic Awakening saga, and it brings a whole host of new rules and models for the Adeptus Mechanicus. Today we’re taking a closer look at the book, including the reinforcements that will soon be executing the will of the Omnissiah across the battlefields of the 41st Millennium.

Aerial Attack

If your enemies are resistant to the teachings of the Machine God, then it’s only logical to come at things from a different angle – such as from above. The Pteraxii are cyborg warriors equipped with flight packs. They come in two different units, the Sterylizors, who are honed for aggression…

…and the Skystalkers, who seek out the best vantage points from which to pick off targets with their flechette carbines.

The Adeptus Mechanicus are also getting a new flyer, the Archaeopter. The new kit builds three different unit options – that’s 11 if you count in binary! The Transvector is an aerial transport craft, capable of delivering your infantry in speed, style and safety.

If you prefer bombers, choose the Fusilave and drop payloads of ground-penetrating, tectomagnic bombs that cause seismic shock waves.

Finally, the Stratoraptor is the ground-attack variant, soaring in to strafe targets with its heavy phosphor blasters.

The kit is incredibly customisable, with optional wargear and the ability to be built in flying or landed mode, with the landing skids and legs modelled in different positions.

Ride to Victory

The Adeptus Mechanicus are also getting some new options on four legs too. Only the finest Skitarii are promoted into the corps of Serberys cavalry. Once there, some of them join the Raiders, long-range scouts who excel in outflanking enemy units.

Others join the Sulphurhounds, shock line-breakers who smash through defensive positions, leaving no survivors.

Who doesn’t love mechanical fire-breathing dog/horse creatures? All of these new units are going to provide some incredible new tactical options for your Adeptus Mechanicus army.

We’ll be taking a closer look at these new units and their rules soon – make sure that you’re signed up to our newsletter so that you don’t miss out on any of the latest updates.

    Every time I see that flyer I think of a Thopter from Dune.
