Forge World just gave Sisters fans a huge ray of sunshine as it looks like the new Kharon transport is one step closer to hitting the table tops this summer!
Games Workshop has a new Forge World teaser for us this morning: the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor for the Sisters of Silence!
Like the vehicles of the Adeptus Custodes, the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor is a skimmer, albeit one of a more ominous and covert provenance. Aquiline motifs like the winged tailfin and the beak-like front of the vehicle tie the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor to the rest of the Talons of the Emperor, but it has a distinctively brutal silhouette, complemented by the iron-maiden style hatches on the sides of the vehicle. These are not for the Sisters of Silence but for their unfortunate psychic quarry; the Sisters themselves disembark from the irising hatch at the skimmer’s fore, embellished with the icon of their shadowed order. It’s easy to imagine just how terrifying seeing one of these in the 31st Millennium would be, psyker or no!
In-game, the Kharon Pattern Acquisitor is a versatile and powerful transport for Horus Heresy armies, either laying down a hail of fire with its weapons (you can see these at the front of the vehicle) or disrupting incoming fire with an array of cloaking technology (like the sensor pod running along the vehicle’s spine). Sisters of Silence units equipped with short ranged weaponry (like the flamer-wielding Witchseekers) or power weapons (like the Vigilators) are going to be harder than ever to escape when attacking out of one of these.
The Horus Heresy Weekender showcased the new minis for Thousand Sons Custodes, and Sisters of Silence. Checkout the close ups from February on the Kharon:
