Heavy Support Squads provide the Legiones Astartes with mobile, infantry-portable firepower sufficient to bring down hordes of enemy troops or smash armoured vehicles apart with withering hails of fire, combining devastating armaments with all the flexibility of a footsoldier. Heavy bolters are the largest bolt weapons available to infantry, unleashing a storm of shells that tear apart enemy formations, while missile launchers are prized for their versatility, offering a variety of explosive munitions suited to eliminating infantry, tanks, or aircraft.
This plastic upgrade kit can be used to equip Legionaries from the MKVI Tactical Squad set with powerful heavy weapons, suitable for use in a Legion Heavy Support Squad. The kit includes 10 heavy bolters and 10 missile launchers with arms suited to each weapon, allowing you to upgrade a full MKVI Tactical Squad set into two Heavy Support Squads of 10 models, or four units of five models. Also included are four augury scanners which can be carried alongside a heavy weapon, allowing each of your Heavy Support Squads to detect and eliminate enemy units.
This upgrade kit comprises 120 plastic components and is designed to be assembled with the MKVI Tactical Squad set, which is sold separately. These components are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
You will need a copy of the Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – Age of Darkness Rulebook and either the Liber Astartes: Loyalist Legiones Astartes Army Book or Liber Hereticus: Traitor Legiones Astartes Army Book to make full use of these upgrades.
