Macrocarid ExploratorJoin us as we unbox and take a look at the Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator! Is this massive tank from Forge World what you have been waiting for?

This massive hunk of resin is about the size of the Land Raider which is essentially what it’s supposed to be, the Mechanicum Land Raider.

Uniquely crafted to the needs of the Magos leading the expeditionary force, Macrocarid Explorators first saw use as frontline combat and mobile command vehicles in the early days of the Great Crusade. Heavily armored and equipped with the Mechanicum’s signature technologies and weapons, they are now pressed into service on both sides of the cataclysmic battles of The Horus Heresy.

Macrocarid Explorators can transport Magos’ or their units of deadly automata across the battlefield, cutting through any opponent foolish enough to come close with powerful weapons enhanced by augury scanners. Their heavy armor makes them as durable as the Legiones Astartes Land Raider, with the addition of extensive self-repair systems.

Rules for using the Macrocarid Explorator in Mechanicum armies in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum – Taghmata Army List.

The Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator includes optional weapons for the vehicle’s sponsons and hull mounting points. A pair of lascannon or two irradiation engines may be fitted to its sponson mounts, whilst a mauler bolt-cannon and a graviton imploder are available as hull mounted weapons.

This is a complete, multi-part resin kit which includes a full color instruction guide.
