Walking death

Where the Ironstriders crewed by Dragoons are designed for lightning-fast assault and precision strikes, Ironstriders crewed by Skitarii Rangers are invariably used for fire support. Armed with cognis autocannons or cognis lascannons, these Ballistarii hunt down and destroy enemy vehicles, using their incredible speed to flank their targets and strike where the enemy’s armour is weakest.

Made from the same plastic kit as the Sydonian Dragoon, the Ironstrider Ballistarius comes with a host of options, including three different heads for the rider, a choice of twin-linked autocannons or twin-linked lascannons for its armament and a couple of different leg poses so you can make the Ironstriders in your unit look different to each other.

From the side you can appreciate the weird loping gait of the Ironstrider. Note how the servitor’s leg stumps are positioned in the same way as the walker’s legs. When the servitor speeds up, so to does the machine he’s plugged in to. From the side you can appreciate the weird loping gait of the Ironstrider.

Cognis weapons are semi-sentient pieces of wargear, high-level machine spirits that can take over from the operator should he become incapacitated or distracted. Our advice, don’t charge an Ironstrider.

But that’s not all, because we’ve also got a video that you need to take a look at:

Our painting machine designated Duncan Alpha IV Rhodes has been hard at work once again, this time painting a Skitarii Ranger in the colours of the most famous forge world of all, Mars. You can also find stage-by-stage painting guides for the new models in White Dwarf 61, out now.
