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 they provide heavy fire support, saturating
the foe with fire from their fearsome array of armaments.
The Archaeopter Stratoraptor is heavily armed, its weaponry featuring two
cognis heavy stubbers, two heavy phosphor blasters and a twin cognis
lascannon. The Archaeopter Stratoraptor can also be upgraded with chaff
launchers to thwart incoming enemy fire. If you’re after a dogfighter to
clear the skies of enemy aircraft or some aerial fire support against
ground targets, look no further than the Archaeopter Stratoraptor.
This kit can alternatively be used to build an Archaeopter Fusilave or
Archaeopter Transvector 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.
