This kit can alternatively be used to build a unit of Serberys Sulphurhounds instead, meaning that regardless of which unit you assemble, you'll end up with plenty of spare components for customising your collection.
To be promoted from the Skitarii maniples to the Serberys corps is a great honour. They ride swift quadrupedal constructs whose razor-clawed limbs allow them to manoeuvre easily over the most shattered terrain, while their riders are mag-locked in gyro-stabilised positions. Serberys Raiders are long-range scouts and outriders. They excel at outflanking enemy forces and picking off unprotected assets. Advanced ocular arrays implanted into the riders’ skulls are noospherically linked with their mounts, ensuring maximum accuracy, while finely calibrated olfactory sensors and a suite of sensitive augury equipment make them dogged and feared trackers.
Serberys Raiders are well equipped for combat at every distance, with galvanic carbines offering ranged punch and finely crafted cavalry sabres for melee combat. The squad’s alpha is also armed with a hard-hitting archeo-revolver. They make for a versatile vanguard unit, able to ride ahead of their fellow Skitarii and even snipe at enemy command assets.
The incandescent flash of phosphor and the stench of charred flesh surround Serberys Sulphurhounds. Appointed from some of the most aggressive Skitarii clades, within their forge world’s temples they patrol lumen-lit enclosures as fell guardians, while on the battlefield, they are shock line breakers. Once released by their Tech-Priest masters they smash into, then through, defensive positions before circling back for any survivors.
Serberys Sulphurhounds bear two phosphor pistols, though one in three of their number can be upgraded to carry a multi-barrelled phosphor carbine. The squad’s alpha is armed with a more powerful version of the standard armament – a phosphor blast pistol. Their flamer-mawed mechanical steeds can also sear enemies with gouts of sulphurous breath. They are both swift and hard-hitting, making them a fantastic complement to the other units of the Adeptus Mechanicus, either as an aggressive or counter-attacking asset.
This kit is supplied in 103 plastic components with which to assemble three models, each supplied with a Citadel 60mm x 35mm Oval Bases. Also included is an Adeptus Mechanicus transfer sheet.
