Due to insistent public demand, GW has finally released the rules for the Termite Assault Drill and the Skitarii Titan Guard in Warhammer 40,000. Thankfully, you don’t have to buy an all-new rulebook to get them either; they’re bring released as a free download. So, we’ve got a rundown of the rules for the new units, as well as the download links for anyone who wants to have them as their own.
Terrax-pattern Termite Assault Drill
The Termite Assault drill is the first-ever Transport for the Adeptus Mechanicus in Warhammer 40,000, opening up all sorts of new tactical possibilities for the army. Drop a unit of rad-powered Skitarii Vanguard onto your opponent’s squishiest flank, deliver a full complement of Fulgurite Electro-Priests where they’ll do the most damage – the choice is yours. Think of it as a Drop Pod – but, in a typical example of Adeptus Mechanicus ingenuity, it comes from below rather than above. While you might not have the shock and awe of descending from on high like a host of angels, you do get a massive drill, so it’s a fair trade.
The Titan Guard units, meanwhile, have a range of uses on the battlefield. Secutarii Hoplites are highly durable spearmen who are great for guarding your Onager Dunecrawlers or any allied Imperial Knights from unwanted enemy charges.
They can utilise a range of special-issue ammunition on the fly, enabling them to tackle nearly any foe with deadly efficiency. If you’ve got a Titan, these guys are perfect for guarding it (hence the name).
Do you think this new set of rules can synergize well with your set up and make your Adeptus Mechanicus forces even more unstoppable? If so, check them out right now!
