"We got tactical smart missiles, phase plasma pulse rifles, RPGs. We got sonic, electronic ball breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks."
I originally built this to run as a Vortex Missile in Apocalypse games, I think it has actually gotten a shot off once (it seems to draw a lot of fire for some reason) I may start including this beast as a Deathstrike in my lists for the lols if nothing else.
The missile came with a playset that my wife got for my kid, he outgrew it but then Apocalypse came along and re-purposing occurred.
The launcher is an insert that slides into a generic Chimera chassis that has been host to a Hydra and/or a Colossus Mortar, I used a combination of plastic tubing the mount from a dozer blade and some sheet styrene. It tilts from travel position to launch position.
Getting back to the opening quote, I've got models for all of those goodies, except one... Guess I need to build some Sgts. with power-mauls.
I've modified an IG data file to cover the Astra Militarum codex. Look hereif you're a Battlescribe user and would like to try it out. Feel free to give me feedback. There's another one here that's not my work. There's also a Militarum Tempestus data file here which is not my work.
--- UPDATE ---
I've updated the file with corrections that I found after building a few lists.
--- UPDATED (AGAIN) ---
A few more corrections and some profiles added
For a grand total of 1315 points, so 75 more points. So to make this work I need to find 70 points (I was 5 points under after all) I can get 40 points easily by dropping the HB sponsons on the Vendettas, now I just need 30 more points; Well, the 100 point Rune Priest is primarily a Divination bot, but then again, I could swap Njal for a level 2 RP with Runic Armor and a chooser for 180 vs Njals 245; that leaves me with 35 points to play with. Maybe a Priest to join the blob? Many possibilities, also for the price of the upgrades on the level 2 RP, I could just use a Primaris Psyker
as another divination caster. Heh, heh, with some juggling I could have a 5 divination psykers just using the AM and SW books. That's a lot of chances to get the powers you want.
This is all just minor tweaks to my list from last year; If I go for a complete overhaul, I'm sure I can do better.
