In other articles posted since the reveal of the new Codex: Space Marines, you may have noticed talk of certain units that are new. But not available to purchase. Well the wait for the mechiest of them is over. The Invictor Tactical Warsuit will be available for pre-order this weekend.
Stats and Abilities
The Invictor Tactical Warsuit, which will be called the ITW from now on, has quite the impressive stat line:
Although it has been advertised as being a stripped down version of a Redemptor Dreadnought. The ITW is not much different from it. Sporting one less toughness at 6 and a movement of 10” this thing still will be tough to crack.
The extra movement isn’t the only increase the ITW has to mobility as it also has Concealed Position:
This is huge as you can get a good amount of firepower across the field quickly. But also provide fire support for all the forward vanguard forces.
Armed with a fragstorm grenade launcher, two ironhail heavy stubbers, and a heavy bolter pistol. The side arms of this mech are no joke, also the heavy bolter does fire as a pistol in close combat. But of course the primary weapons are also quite deadly, like the Incendium Cannon:
Being able to auto-hit with heavy flamer stats no matter the enemies charge range is huge. Plus with Concealed Position this flamer can be in range turn 1 ripping squads apart. But there also is the twin ironhail autocannon:
This is the support option to back up your advanced vanguard forces against enemy armor. Being a 6 shot autocannon is huge but with a couple of ITWs providing support enemy tanks beware. But even if the ITW decides to deploy more aggressively the strongest units will fear its mighty fist:
Being able to wound all but the toughest vehicles on a 2+. The Invictor fist will wreck enemy vehicles, plus with 5 attacks on the charge, you’ll be dropping a rhino a turn!
With a couple ITWs on the field if you want to be close range aggressive. White Scars, Black Templars and Space Wolves would be great options. Or if you want to run the supporting fire idea. Salamanders or Iron Hands would be great for keeping you alive. Plus the Salamander re-rolls. And Crimson fists would be great when facing down hordes of enemies.
The ITW is built so that many of the joints are articulated to allow for your own custom pose for the Warsuit. Even the fist is articulated allowing it to be holding the heavy bolter pistol, instead of stored on the hip.
The Invictor Tactical Warsuit gives the new Vanguard Primaris Marines the heavy weapons back up that they needed. We’re sure to see a few at the game table.
