Forge World Preview: Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill

Last month, when we brought you the news from the Horus Heresy & Necromunda Weekender, it included an exciting new vehicle model for Horus Heresy armies, the Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill. Today, we can bring you more information about this specialised transport vehicle.

So what is the Termite? Well, it’s a reimagining of a classic model from days past. The Termite Transporter appeared in a game called Space Marine, which veteran hobbyists may remember as the game of epic battles using smaller scale Citadel miniatures. Models like Titans, Imperial Knights and the Baneblade first appeared in this tiny scale, and the Termite is just the latest in the long line of models from that era to be scaled up for the tabletop.

The Termite is a transport vehicle – but rather than taking them across the ground, or through the air, it burrows deep beneath the earth, launched from a surface transport far behind enemy lines. It uses a combination of melta cutters, phase-shield generators and huge heavy-bore drills to chew through the ground beneath the foe to emerge behind the lines or in the heart of enemy fortifications. The Termite is armed with deadly weapons – with a choice of bolters, volkite chargers or heavy flamers in the kit – that punish any nearby foes before it disgorges its deadly cargo to bring death and ruin.

We can’t reveal the full rules for the Termite Assault Drill quite yet, but as soon as we hear more, you’ll be the first to know. 

You’ll be able to pre-order the Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill soon – keep an eye on the Forge World Facebook page for more on when.
