Astraeus Super-heavy Tank build #2 from Games Workshop

The Astraeus Super-heavy Tank build #2 from Forge World (Games Workshop) contains pieces to build a hovering combat vehicle in heavy armor, armed with heavy cannons.

"An appropriately large and aggressive-looking model, this multi-part resin kit makes 1 Astraeus Super-heavy tank. It features 4 repulsor pods, 2 at the rear and 2 smaller ones at the front, configured to allow the Astraeus maximum manoeuvrability. These are connected to the 2 hull sections – the rear hull is dominated by the enormous twin macro-accelerator cannon, which extends along the entire length of the rear hull, with a detailed ammunition feed featured. Backing this up in terms of weaponry is a turret on the front hull, which can be equipped with twin heavy bolters or twin lascannon, and 2 sponson turrets which feature your choice of las-rippers or plasma eradicators. Included are 2 void shield projectors on their own mounts.  The kit is supplied with a 160mm round base and flying stem." [Forge World]
