ARMAGEDDON STOMPA HUNTERS

Traditionally, a Sentinel is considered ill suited to duelling with super-heavy, Titan-class war engines, being outgunned and out-classed in almost every regard. However, when organised into dedicated search-and-destroy teams, Armoured Sentinels hunt their quarry in large packs. Together, they are capable of unleashing a torrent of firepower that can topple giants. Amongst the most illustrious of Armoured Sentinel formations are those that patrol the ash wastes of Armageddon. On this beleaguered world, Stompa Mobs rampage through the toxic landscape and the Imperiums Titan Legions are stretched too thinly to engage the enemy on all fronts. As such, the Armoured Sentinel patrols, the so-called Armageddon Stompa Hunters, were forced to step up to the challenge. Despite heavy losses during initial hunts, the Armageddon Stompa Hunters soon began to

POINTS: 100 + MODELS

reap a respectable tally of confirmed Titan-class kills. Having tracked their quarry, the Stompa Hunters close to within optimal firing range and pounce upon an unprotected flank. Then, in a desperate attempt to halt the beast before it has the time to alter course and flatten them to scrap, all power is diverted to the primary weapons systems. Such drastic measures quickly overload the Sentinels machine spirits, forcing the walkers to enter a state of temporary shut-down whilst energy reservoirs replenish and machine spirits reawaken. During this time, the Stompa Hunters are extremely vulnerable and, without support from nearby troops, they are easy prey. The Sentinel pilots seldom have the time to contemplate the consequences of their actions for they knew too well that if their attack fails then no amount of support will help avert the terrifying fury of an enraged Stompa.

ARMOURED COMMAND SQUADRON

FORMATION:
Three 3-strong Armoured Sentinel Squadrons 1 Armoured Sentinel designated as the Command Sentinel.

SPECIAL RULES:
Strike Force: All vehicles in an Armageddon Stompa Hunters formation must be deployed within 12" of the Command Sentinel, or, if coming on from reserve, the formation must enter the table within 12" of the point entered by the Command Sentinel. Super-heavy Hunters: All Armoured Sentinels within 12" of the Command Sentinel add +1 to their armour penetration rolls whenever they hit a vehicle with a shooting attack. Divert Power to Weapons: Instead of firing normally, the formation can elect to Divert Power to Weapons. If the player elects to do this, select a single super-heavy vehicle or gargantuan creature within line of sight of the Command Sentinel as the target of the attack. All units in the formation must immediately fire twice at the target. An Armageddon Stompa Hunter formation that Diverts Power to Weapons cannot move or fire in their next turn.

BANEHAMMER SUPER-HEAVY TANK


Imperial Guard formations are not known for their mobility and rely on overwhelming firepower to achieve their battlefield objectives. As a result, many Imperial commanders nurse a deep-set loathing, that borders on hatred, for any foe that is able to advance swiftly enough as to reach the Imperial lines before the massive bombardments have taken a sufficient toll. From such obsessions did the Banehammer super-heavy tank evolve. The Banehammers tremor cannon fires massive shells that are fused to explode only after they have buried some

distance into the ground. The resulting shockwave is invariably as lethal to troops on the surface as conventional ordnance, but can also disrupt the enemy advance for a considerable distance. Banehammers have proven particularly effective in the ongoing battle against Hive Fleet Leviathan. The larger Tyranid bio-monstrosities have proven notoriously resilient to even the heaviest weaponry, but a well-placed tremor cannon shell can slow them long enough for massed fire to bring them down.

*Earthshock: When the final position of the tremor cannon blast is determined, place a suitable marker under the hole and roll 4D6. This is the size of the shockwave zone generated by the shot. The shockwave lasts until the start of the Banehammers next turn. Any units moving through the shockwave zone will do so as if they were moving through difficult terrain. Any units moving through difficult terrain in the shockwave zone will roll 1D6 less than normal to determine their maximum movement. Vehicles treat the shockwave zone as dangerous terrain including skimmers (their motive systems are particularly vulnerable to boulders and rock shards being hurled into the sky).

OPTIONS: A Banehammer may be given the following

BANESWORD SUPER-HEAVY TANK


The Banesword is an adaptation of the venerated Shadowsword design, exchanging the Titan-killing volcano cannon for the fortress-pounding fury of the quake cannon. The resulting combination of devastating siege gun and nigh-impenetrable armour is considered by many to be the last word in Imperial siegecraft. Indeed, Imperial combat doctrine holds an honoured place for the Banesword, and any commander worthy of his rank would gladly exchange a single Banesword for any two regiments in his army.

POINTS: 450

It is traditional for a Banesword to be named only after it has proved itself in battle. As a result, a freshly commissioned Banesword will ordinarily be referred to by an abbreviation of its lengthy production number or its forge world of origin. A Baneswords final designation will only be determined by its deeds on the battlefield, often incorporating the name or title of one of its victims. Of course, a blast from a quake cannon rarely leaves enough of the target for positive identification, so a certain amount of artistic licence is doubtless applied in most cases.

DEATHSTRIKE VORTEX MISSILE


Of all the myriad of weapons at the Imperiums disposal, few are as revered or as devastating as a Deathstrike vortex missile a doomsday weapon of truly apocalyptic proportions. When the missiles warhead explodes, it tears the very fabric of reality, creating a raging maelstrom of destruction that destroys anything and everything it touches. So rare and valuable are these weapons that Segmentum Command must nominally sanction their use, but unleashing such a battlefield asset can swing the course of a war. A Deathstrike vortex missile is a cumbersome weapon. Not only do these technological relics require constant maintenance, they also require the utmost protection. Indeed, a vortex-armed Deathstrike Missile Launcher represents such high a priority target for enemy commanders that they are never deployed without a large, heavily Lord Commisar Von Black

armed escort detail and it is common practice to attach at least an entire Infantry Platoon to their defence. These Guardsmen must create a strong defensive perimeter to protect the Deathstrike Missile Launcher, erecting camo-netting to conceal the launch site from prying eyes and maintaining a constant patrol for enemy saboteurs and kill-teams. As the Deathstrike prepares for launch it will do so under the watchful guidance of a Lord Commissar. Only these officers are trusted with the sanctioned launch codes, for the sheer destructive power of a vortex missile is too much to grant to any but the most loyal servant of the Imperium. Furthermore, where a lesser man may waver at the critical moment, a Lord Commissar will resolutely fulfill his duty and fire the doomsday weapon, no matter the cost. Platoon command squad

DOOMHAMMER SUPER-HEAVY TANK


The thousand-year Siege of Ordana saw a new super-heavy tank design pressed into Imperial service the Doomhammer. Confronted by a renegade forge world and its associated Titan Legions, the Ordana battlezone commanders were crying out for Shadowswords and other Titan-hunting vehicles. As the campaign dragged on, the attrition rate of such war engines swiftly outstripped supply. In the end, only the retrofitting of Banehammer tanks, exchanging tremor cannons for magma cannons, allowed the Imperium to maintain the war effort.

POINTS: 450

APOCALYPSE APOCALYPSE

A Doomhammers magma cannon is closely modelled on the volcano cannon employed by the famous Shadowsword design. While it has a reduced range and area of effect when compared to its larger cousin, the magma cannon is still able to marshal a Titan-killing blast of epic proportions. At the same time, the space saved due to the smaller number of capacitors accords the Doomhammer a modest transport capacity and thus a more flexible battlefield role. This combination was to prove its worth many times over in the Siege of Ordana, and in many other warzones.

HEAVY WEAPONS COMPANY


The Heavy Weapons Company of an Imperial Guard regiment is able to deal a hammer blow to the enemys forces. Whilst it is common practice to attach individual weapons teams to the regiments other companies, it is not unheard of for the entirety of a Heavy Weapons support company to take to the battlefield as a single formation. When they are fielded so, the Heavy Weapons Company is tasked with the destruction of the greatest enemy threats, responding to huge concentrations of enemy troops or titanic engines of war with colossal firepower. Individual Heavy Weapons Squads tend to field weapons with a specific task in mind; anti-infantry weapons lack the

POINTS: 100 + MODELS

punch to threaten heavily armoured units and anti-tank waponry cannot match the high rate of fire necessary to halt infantry swarms. As a result, when Heavy Weapons Squads are fielded as a full company, they work in concert with other elements from the Heavy Weapons Company, ensuring that they each engage and destroy the most appropriate foes. The combined firepower of such companies, when directed by a competant Imperial Guard officer, is easily capable of scything down a marauding mob of Orks, shattering the spearhead of a Chaos Space Marine assault or annihilating the well-armoured tank convoys of the Tau Empire.

ROUGH RIDER COMPANY


Rough Rider regiments are rarely deployed as a single fighting force; their specialised skills are instead often divided up to support other, less mobile formations. On those occasions when they are fielded en masse, they present the foe with an inexorable wall of muscled steeds that tramples anyone foolish enough to stand in its way. Rough Rider Companies rove ahead of the main Imperial Guard force, tasked with overrunning and destroying isolated groups of enemies. The Rough Riders roam the landscape in search of the spoor of enemy formations and can track their quarry for days if necessary, awaiting the perfect time to strike. Of all the Imperiums Rough Rider regiments, it is those from feral and barbaric worlds that excel at this kind of warfare, warriors that are used to

operating as independent, nomadic bands of hunters. However, the warrior pride and tribal mentality of such regiments often leads them to pursue ever greater glories and take ever greater risks. Though bloody and costly, some of the greatest victories in the Imperiums history have been won as the result of a Rough Rider Companys reckless charge. When a company of Rough Riders commits to the fray the results are as deadly as they are terrifying. The Rough Riders themselves are heard before they are seen; the land itself heralds their arrival as the beat of hundreds of hoofs sound like an ominous war drum. The growling tremble of the ground is soon joined by the war cries of the riders, lances lowered as their mounts gallop towards their quarry.

SHADOWSWORD SUPER-HEAVY TANK


Amongst the many super-heavy tanks in the service of the Imperium, the Shadowsword is the one that mounts the largest and most powerful primary weapon in the arsenals of Mankind the dreaded volcano cannon. This awesome weapon can cripple the largest war engines with a single shot. Nothing short of the most powerful energy shields can hope to stop a direct hit from a volcano cannon no amount of armour or cover can offer protection from it.

POINTS: 450

Throughout the history of the Imperium, Shadowsword tanks have proven to be the natural enemy of Titans of all classes and sizes. Differently from their towering antagonists, the Shadowswords lie in ambush until the other units in the army have taken out the Titans shields. At that point, they open fire with their targeter-guided volcano cannon, delivering the killing blow with precise shots aimed at the Titans weak points.

STORM TROOPER STRIKE FORCE


The Storm Troopers are the most elite fighting force at the Imperial Guards disposal. In exceptional circumstances, several Storm Trooper squads are required to combine forces to strike at a heavily defended, but vital objective. The Storm Troopers role is not to hold or secure the location, but rather it is to eliminate all enemy presence, scouring any threat from the position. The casualties sustained in these actions are invariably high, only death or glory await those who undertake such missions. For the Storm Troopers however there is no better way to test their skills and no greater honour than to die in battle.

POINTS: 150 + MODELS

The Storm Trooper regiment is one of the few to have a permanent pool of Valkyrie Assault Carriers to carry them into battle. With the speed of these aircraft to deliver them to their mission coordinates, the Storm Troopers take their enemy by surprise, smashing through windows and doors before the enemy can mount an effective resistance. The Valkyries provide covering fire for the Storm Troopers as they towards the objective. Without pause or hesitation the Storm Troopers sweep through the enemy-held structure, cutting down their quarry with efficient bursts of highpowered lasfire.

The Stormsword was originally a field conversion of the Shadowsword, using a salvaged chassis with a new weapon replacing the volcano cannon. Christened the Stormsword by troops, this super-heavy tank carries a large Stormsword cannon. Used for street fighting and siege warfare, the tank excels at close quarters.

POINTS: 450

The siege gun fires huge rocket-propelled siege shells, each weighing in excess of 180kg, with enough explosive power to flatten a building in a single shot. In addition to its main weapon, the Stormsword is also formidably equipped with secondary weapons for combat in the close confines of city streets.
