Did you see the big news at the weekend?
The Skitarii are coming – a brand new faction for Warhammer 40,000!
There are already two new plastic kits available to pre-order that make four different units: Skitarii Vanguard, Skitarii Rangers, Sydonian Dragoons and Ironstrider Ballistarii. Today’s post is all about the Rangers.
The Skitarii are the military wing of the Adeptus Mechanicus, a galaxy-spanning army of cyber-humans indoctrinated and augmented to become the ultimate, unflinching holy warriors of the Machine God. When the Tech-Priests go to war, it is the Skitarii that form the bulk of their armies, marching into battle without a care for their own safety, their only goal to carry out the orders of their unseen masters and, by extension, the will of the Machine God.
Rangers are often the first Skitarii to encounter the enemy. Stalking relentlessly across icy tundra, jungle floors and rad-ruined wastelands, these robed warriors pursue their foe until they destroy them or they themselves are killed.
You can see more of the Skitarii Rangers in this week’s White Dwarf, which also includes four pages of painting guides and their full rules, including all their bizarre weapons and wargear. Come back tomorrow to see the Skitarii Vanguard.
