Land’s Raider Class Battle Tank(s), MkIIb Variant

The legions made extensive use of Land’s formidable mainline battle tank, favoured by all of the Astartes. By the outbreak of the heresy several chassis variants and patterns of the ubiquitous warmachine, the rout favouring the MkIIb variant for it’s refined design and the powerful phobos pattern assault ramp.

MkIIb ‘Phobos’ Pattern Raider Battle Tank

A ground assault boat, blunt in its application, the Phobos pattern Raider Tank is designed to protect it’s cargo of assault warriors in the most brutal of warzones. Favoured by the Jarls of Fenris for it’s ferocity, more than one Phobos has been garbed in the Morkai’s black shroud and enlisted to deliver those Deathsworn brothers into the heart of battle.

MkIIb ‘Proteus’ Pattern Raider Battle Tank

A rarely seen variant of the Raider Battle Tank, with the proteus configuration more commonly associated with the MkI chassis and the MkII chassis more commonly sporting the Phobos Assault Ramp. The MkIIb ‘Proteus’ does however see battle under the banner of the 6th Legion, a heavily armed and armoured tanks with a transport capacity. Used my squads and thegns to deliver kill teams, seeker squads and hunters to key objectives.

Vlka Fenryka 6000pts

Time seems to have passed at a such a considerable rate since this project was begun in April of 2016, so much so that a ‘whole army’ picture has failed to happen. So having broken the 6000pts threshold (6081pts to be exact) the warriors of the Rout have been assembled!

Deimos Pattern Predator ‘Medium’ Tank

Predator Tank, Deimos Pattern, armed with a Predator class Autocannon, which offers a greater rate of fire than it’s more ubiquitous name-sake. The Predator is employed by the Vlka Fenryka primarily in fire support role, harrying enemy light armour and infantry, leaving the dedicated tank engagements to its Sicaran kin.

 

The Predator is a highly effective medium tank designed to provide Astartes Legions with heavy fire support in the heat of battle. Whilst several patterns of Predator saw battle during the Great Crusade and latter Horus Heresy the Deimos Pattern was by far the most common.

Sicaran Battle Tank

Sicaran Battle Tank, Sixth Legion, displaying elite Varagyr knot work markings on upper track plates representative of veteran crew, favoured by a Jarl, or even the Wolf King.

The Sicaran is one of the most advanced armoured units in the arsenal of the Vlka Fenryka, or the Legions as a whole. The Sicaran utilises component technologies from various STC patterns to create a high-speed ‘destroyer’ tank to complement the more commonplace Predator and Raider designs. It is this speed that finds the tank favour amongst the Thegns and Jarls of the Rout.

The primary armament of this Sicaran varient is the sophisticated Herakles pattern accelerator autocannon, a superior rapid-firing and highly accurate weapon. It fires shells at far higher velocities than a standard autocannon, enabling it to successfully track and engage swift moving targets and pinpoint vulnerabilities in enemy armour with lethal precision.
