GW previews the new AdMech units!
This article was originally published on the Warhammer-community site.
The Adeptus Mechanicus are about to get two awesome new units – the Serberys Sulphurhounds and the Serberys Raiders. These two cavalry units add speed and incredible tactical versatility to the armies of the Machine God. It would only be logical to learn more about them.
The quadrupeds of the Serbrys corps are cybernetic organisms armed with vicious claws, allowing them to casually manoeuvre over any ground and eviscerate enemy warriors with ease. Ridden into battle by only the finest Skitarii troops, there are two distinct Serbrys units.
Made up from the most aggressive members of the Skitarii clades, the Serberys Sulphurhounds are the shock cavalry of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Weakening their enemies at range with lethal phosphor weaponry, they burn holes in enemy lines with their mounts’ sulphur breath. Thanks to the interfaces with their mounts, they are even able to dual wield their pistols, blasting apart their foes. They will then circle around to mercilessly finish off any survivors, leaving nothing but the smell of burnt flesh in their wake.
Long-range scouts and outriders, the Serberys Raiders are often employed to outflank and harass enemy forces or to destroy high-ranking assets. Rather than using the long-range sniper weapons of other races, they prefer medium-range guns, relying on the speed of their mounts to get them into (and out of) position quickly. Their riders are equipped with advanced ocular arrays while their mounts have finely calibrated olfactory sensors. This makes the Serberys Raiders excellent trackers and hunters – no fugitive can hope to escape them.
Both of these units will be available alongside Psychic Awakening: Engine War, which features a host of new units and abilities for the Adeptus Mechanicus. We’ll be taking a closer look at the rules for the new units in the future. In the meantime, grab yourself an Ironstrider Ballistarius to give your new cavalry some fast-moving fire support.
