Tactical squads are the mainstay of the Space Marine Legions and the force by which the Great Crusade has reconquered much of the galaxy. By the fighting power of thousands of superhuman warriors such as these, armed and armoured for battle in the harshest of environments and the deadliest of war zones, the enemies of Mankind have been crushed repeatedly. The Legion Tactical squad is a highly flexible infantry unit, able to attack or defend at will, assault heavily fortified positions and take and hold strategic objectives, or simply slaughter an enemy comprehensively in almost any situation.
MKIII 'Iron’ power armour dates from the wars of the Great Crusade, and is renowned for its use in full frontal assault due to its bulky but durable design.
This multipart plastic kit builds 20 Space Marine Legionaries, which you can field in games of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy as a Legion Tactical Squad of 20 models or two units of 10 models. Each of these Legionaries is armed with a bolter and bolt pistol, and you can optionally equip them with various additional components such as grenades, pouches, and a bayonet for melee fighting. You can also build up to two Legionaries with a Legion vexilla, two with a nuncio-vox, and two with an augury scanner.
Accessories and alternative head options are included to build a Legion Tactical Sergeant for each of your squads – the kit offers a variety of extra weapon options for these unit leaders, including plasma pistols, power swords, power fists, and lightning claws.
These models have no Legion markings, allowing Warhammer hobbyists to paint them in whichever colours they choose. However, the box includes a transfer sheet with 293 optional markings and iconography for the Sons of Horus and Imperial Fists Legions.
