The Malcador Defender is a variant of the venerable Malcador Assault Tank design. It is not widely used by Imperial armed forces at the present time and is in . My Malcador is now built. I just need to magnetise the sponsons and paint it. This list should its first outing on Tuesday, December 6th. It will be. be as in depth as it could be with turn-by-then rolls.

This shows most of the enemy forces. Defedner a few Imperial Guard regiments continue using the Malcador out of a sense of tradition, in most cases the large part of existing tanks are either held in strategic reserves or relegated to ‘second line’ forces such as PDFs. But the latter means it can merrily chug up the table moving through terrain without worrying about being immobilised or losing hull points. The Minotaur’s deck layout is also unusual, as everything from the engine and defenrer systems to the weapon and ammunition storage is spaced out evenly over the entire superstructure.

Roll them into your fortified gun line, let their forward mounted weapon savage the enemy, and with Lady Luck and Admiral Awesome on your side, your Malcadors and any supporting forces will peel back to another fortified position before the enemy defendeg dish out too much retaliation.

Getting close is going to be key to get my Rapid Fire Lasguns into range and my Flamers. The Malcador is now actually somewhat good! Although it is rumored like always that the Minotaur is stockpiled by those greedy fucks in the thousands inside of Departmento Munitorum storehouses, only specialized siege companies of the Imperial Guard will ever get to deploy their awesome firepower.

The Malcaxor ‘Infernus’ is a flamethrower tank, though its role has been largely supplanted by the faster and more reliable Hellhoundand is more often found in second-line units such as Planetary Defense Forces or relegated to civilian duties.

The Malcador was mass-produced for the Imperial Army during the Great Crusadewhere it distinguished itself from other tanks by its speed.

Poor bastard can’t catch a break. Contents [ show ]. The only advantages that this tank has are that its rear armor is slightly better and that it can soak a few more hits since it’s a heavy tank. That and the fact that it can deliver what amounts to a shot from a twin-linked basilisk point-blank. The reversed Chimera is in the background as the Bikes ready their charge.

Views Read Edit View history. I guess it has sponsons now? It got at least two Explodes results both of which just ended up taking a single hull point each.

Thought to be older than the venerable Leman Russthe Malcador is intended to fulfill the same Main Battle Tank role despite its larger size. Additionally as a light super heavy they allow to use superheroes rules without your opponent wanting to strangle you for bringing a baneblade to a friendly game.

Ancient records found at the Scholastica Bellicose on the planet Mordia show that the Valdor Tank Hunter was most widely used during the Great Scouring after the Heresy, when the Imperium led the great counter-attack against the Traitor Legions, driving them all the way to the Eye of Terror. Do note that this thing is cheese incarnate. While well-armed and durable the tank does suffer from several limitations. The Malcador Infernus variant has been mostly replaced by the faster and more reliable Hellhound in front-line Imperial Guard regiments.

Because there wasn’t enough room in the tank to put shielding around the reactor that powers the laser, the tank is more prone to catastrophic damage and its crew is at an increased risk of getting cancer.

Malcador Trench Rails — Sweet!

Combined this with its stupid design choice and general underpowered firepower for something its size and you will get the Imperial’s equivalent of a wet lemon. This can mitigate the design’s inherent problems and its firepower and considerable protection can make it a valuable asset to Imperial forces for both offensive and defensive engagements. Like other Malcador patterns the ‘Infernus’ still suffers from an underpowered engine, causing it to struggle on steep inclines and overheat.

Still, against other, more conventional armored vehicles when it is part of a larger offensive force, the Malcador Annihilator can still prove its worth in the hands of a skilled crew.

Due to the nature of its armaments, it is well-suited to close-quarters combat, trench warfare and urban warfare engagements. Everyone in a transport too, defrnder is nice and doable for me now that I have more of them built, including a lovely four wheeled Taurox. More damning to the design is its defende plant, a thermic combustor design more commonly used in agricultural and industrial machinery. Somewhat larger and heavier than the more familiar and versatile Leman Russ, dwfender Malcador’s bulk and heavy layers of armour plating gives it improved durability.

The original stretched Russ, except it has weaker front and side armor than the Russ and its turret can’t spin all the way around. Recognizing that the mostly-fixed-forward turret was a problem, the Adeptus Deffender thought up the Malcador Defender. It’s an Inferno Cannon taken from a Titan and mounted on a tank.

With the 6th and 7th editions, maybe they can now. In game terms, it really does deserve to have its front and side armour buffed to be on par with the Leman Russ Battle Tank.
