Militarum Tempestus Valkyrie

The Militarum Tempestus, also known as the Ordo Tempestus, is amongst the most rigidly codified of all Imperial organisations, for its troops form the elite backbone of the Astra Militarum, serving as its special operations units. Though the Ordo is technically a sub-faction governed by the Adeptus Administratum, it enjoys a far greater amount of autonomy than the Imperial Guard regiments that often fight alongside it.

Alongside the Taurox Prime vehicles the Militarum Tempestus also use the Valkyrie Transport. The Valkyrie Airborne Assault Carrier is a heavily armed Imperial Aircraft with VTOL (Vertical Takeoff Or Landing) capabilities, used to ferry troops, such as the Tempestus Scions,  to and from combat zones.

This Militarum Tempestus Valkyrie was on display at Warhammer World.

Taurox Prime

The Taurox is a robust infantry assault vehicle. It is heavily armoured with thick plates and is equipped with an array of heavy weapons to support the Astra Militarum on the battlefield.

This Militarum Tempestus Taurox Prime at Warhammer World is armed with a missile launcher.

This version in Warhammer World is painted as a Taurox Prime in the Militarum Tempestus.

When the Taurox was released back in 2014, I said back then.

The Taurox Prime is a new model from Games Workshop, and I really don’t like it. I think it’s too tall and the tracked “wheels” fail to work for me.

I wasn’t alone in that though as the comments show in that post.

The Taurox can be armed with twin-linked autocannons mounted on the sides of the hull or upon the turret. Both the Taurox and the Taurox Prime can be equipped with a pintle mounted Storm Bolter, bull bars and a gunner who can be positioned at 3 different heights.
