In my post the other day, I forgot to share this fine fellow. That’s poor quality blogging right there, since he’s the centrepiece of my force. So behold!
Or uh, re-behold. He’s above the text I guess, so by the time you read this you shall have already beheld.
Anyway this is Thunderchild, my Thanatar siege automata. Was an absolute pain in the arse to build, and I swear I’ll never build another one. Fun to paint though.
I’ll run him as a Paragon of Metal. In case you’re not familiar with the Heresy rules, this is an upgrade that one robo in your army can have. It means his programming is so sublime that he is effectively
a true AI not an AI, haha, as that would be heretekal. He can operate independently though, without needing a controller nearby, and is extra tough. I gave him that particular name because it’s the Horus Heresy – it all hearkens back to classic science fiction, and you don’t get much more classic than H.G. Wells.
