Named after a mysterious figure from the Imperium’s earliest days, Malcador the Sigillite (-a close advisor to the Emperor during the Battles of Unification, and the man credited with founding the Administratum of Terra), the tank is a mobile fortress, heavily armed and armoured but slow. Mounting multiple heavy bolters for all-round defence, side-sponson weapons and a demolisher cannon in a limited-traverse hull mount.
Death Korps of Krieg Imperial Guard Malcador Heavy Tank in winter camouflage. In the display cabinets at GamesDay 2008. Beautifully painted and constructed.
One of the things you may miss on this blog amongst all my entries, tags and pictures, is the community feed which is down on the right underneath the tag cloud.Update: with the demise of Google Reader, the community feed has been removed.
There are usually some wonderful things in that feed, but one which really caught my eye recently was this fantastic Death Korps of Krieg army.
That is just one of many photographs of the army from the Senji Studios blog. I really like the aged and weathered look of the armoured vehicles and the infantry are well painted as well.
Excellent go and have a close look, there are lots more photos and bigger photos at that.Update: the site is now offline.
When you have a fortified position which you absolutely, resolutely need to get through, then choose the Hades Breaching Drill.
It does what it says on the tin!
The excellent new Death Korps of Krieg Hades Breaching Drill is now available to pre-order from Forge World. A few will be available on GamesDay 2008 in Birmingham and at only £26 I suspect they will go fast, very fast…
Here are a couple of photos to remind you what it’s like.
Just the thing to take out that fortified Ork stronghold that I have (not) been building.
Really nice model, nice to see something different. Now if we could see more innovative Ork stuff and slightly less Imperial Guard I think I would be happier!
At the Warhammer 40K 5th Edition bash at Warhammer World yesterday (12th June) Forge World had on display a sneek peek of a Krieg Engineer team with Mole Launcher; which has to be a Mole Mortar by any other name!
Nice model and a must for anyone using Death Korps of Krieg.
