Magos Macrotek

A bit of a short update while I have some spare time:

I bought the new Tahgmata Army List book and the Macrotek/Servo-Automata bundle when it was released.
I’m loving not having to carry a 8lb book to every game I play! having a self-contained Codex style book for my 30k Mechanicum is fantastic.
A few of the new things in the book particularly interest me.

The Ordinatus Minoris Macro-Engine

It’s like two or three Krios tanks got together and tried to lug around a warlord titan’s armaments…
Except for the fact that there are -two- versions.
One can carry a Bellicosa Volcano cannon (normally mounted on the Warlord)
The other is a Sonic cannon of such prodigous size and power that Noise Marines whimper and cry and go home. Eldar fall silent in awe, and even Goff Rockas stand slack-jawed in shock.
Draw a 7″ wide line across the table from the gun, 72″ long, or to the table-edge. whichever happens first.
Now kill roughly 5/6ths of the models under it.
Do it again, every turn. until all the enemies are dead.

I sorta want one, and I sorta don’t.

Macrocarid Explorator

In previous Mechanicum lists, they could take the Build-Your-Own Land-Raider kit.
Apparently that wasn’t good enough. Now they can take the Macrocarid.
It’s basically a land raider in all but name, but lacks the front assault ramp and can take a few weapon systems the land-raider couldn’t…
For example, sponson mounted Irradiation Engines.
Because torrents of cancer is funny 😛

I’m thinking this is my excuse to buy and convert a Land Raider Proteus.

The question remains of where to get the Irradiation Engines from, the only kit that actually has them is the Myrmidon Destructor kit. which has one in each group of three dudes.
What I’m thinking is that I can pull the irad engines off two of those kits and replace all the weapons in two squads with the Graviton Cannon, a solid and potent weapon I’d quite like to field in any case.
I can convert the graviton cannons using grav-gun bits from my bits box (I have a lot spare)
And that will leave me with at least two spare volkite culverins and two conversion beamers.
Always useful for other conversions…

But in any case. on to the matter at hand:
I made a thing.
It took me about two hours.
