Warhammer 40,000 - 59-22 - Adeptus Mechanicus Archaeopter
A workhorse not only of the toxic Martian skies, but of distant worlds at the forefront of the Tech-Priests' expansion for millennia, the Archaeopter is an agile fixed-wing aircraft. Piloted by a member of the Pteraxii caste, whose legs and scapuli superior are hardwired into its controls, the nano-carbon fibre-weave of the Archaeopter's wings is capable of morphing – a property it shares with the Pteraxii flight packs. This affords great manoeuvrability and enables it to operate within changing pressures as it swoops overhead to drop payloads of ground-penetrating, tectomagnic bombs, designed to cause seismic shock waves among the enemy ranks.
The Archaeopter Fusilave is armed with no fewer than four cognis heavy stubbers as well as a bomb rack of tectomagnic munitions which it can drop on enemy ground forces from above. Archaeopter Fusilaves are great options for countering enemy assaults, blunting their advances with bombing runs that are equally destructive and disruptive.
This kit can alternatively be used to build an Archaeopter Transvector or Archaeopter Stratoraptor instead, meaning that regardless of which unit you assemble, you'll end up with plenty of spare components for customising your collection.
This kit is supplied in 94 plastic components and is supplied with a Citadel 170mm x 109mm Oval Base and a Citadel 115mm Ball Stem with Tang Adapter.
