Someone managed to fix the Malcador by kit-bashing it with a Russ. The tank’s upper turret embrasure is heavily modified to mount five separate Heavy Bolters angled to provide degrees of fire coverage. The Malcador Defender can be outfitted with a variety of upgrades and attachments, such as Camouflage Netting, Extra Armour Plating, an improved communications system, a Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher, a mine sweeper, a pintle-mounted Heavy Stubber, rough terrain modifications, track guards, a Searchlight, and Smoke Launchers.

It probably would have been a better malcadod to put this configuration on a Macharius Heavy Tank instead, though.

This shifts the tank’s role to that of serving as a mobile fortress that is often referred to as degender breakthrough tank.

Malcador Heavy Tank

Many armory worlds still have large stocks of Malcador tanks on hand in case they are needed for an urgent engagement, and they are still used by second-line forces such as garrison regiments and Planetary Defence Forces. Do note that this thing is cheese incarnate. Finally some snaps of the Malcador on the production lineā€¦ the more I look at this thing the more and more I want another and another!

While this attempt to increase the Malcador’s versatility by allowing it to perform in an anti-tank role against both regular and Super-Heavy Tanks is admirable, it remains too large and too slow to be a true “tank hunter” and lacks the durability or endurance to challenge true heavyweights like the Baneblade in open battle.

The reversed Chimera is in defdnder background as the Bikes ready their charge. Everyone in a transport too, which is nice and doable for me now that I have more of them built, including a lovely four wheeled Taurox.

The primary weapon system, a massive Twin-linked Earthshaker Cannon, is housed in a wide, centralized axis point, and features a complex hydraulic recoil suppression system.

As well very few Forge Worlds continue to produce Malcadors or replacement parts for them, though a few exceptions exist, most notably M’Khand Secundus in the Segmentum Pacificus.

Love this model, which is the main reason for bringing it. Unfortunately, unlike most Malcador variants, the Mechanicus suddenly went full retard and forgot, for the most part, how to construct these things. These tanks were used to horrifying effect to defend breaches in the heretical lines during the Siege of Vraks.

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. That and the deefender that it can deliver what amounts to a shot from a twin-linked basilisk point-blank. Its only redeeming quality is that its more survivable thanks to being a super heavy malcadro, though all of its positives end there.

The Minotaur’s deck layout is also unusual, as everything from the engine and drive systems to the weapon and ammunition storage is spaced out evenly over the entire superstructure.

Plus I just really like it, as one now seems like not enough! The Malcador dates back to the early years of the Imperium, although exactly when is a matter of mystery even to the Adeptus Mapcador. Although apologies that this might not be as in depth as it could be with turn-by-then rolls. The Minotaur is a rare self-propelled artillery piece used by the armed forces of the Imperium of Man that can trace its origins back to the Great Crusade and maybe even earlier.

A hull point was taken from a Land Speeder it was also shaken and a single Cultist was killed. It got at least defehder Explodes results both of which just ended up taking a single hull malcsdor each. I did three wounds and they failed two of their saves! The Valdor tank mounts a Neutron Laser that somehow causes an electromagnetic pulse in tanks it shoots in addition to putting a big hole in thembut also risks getting damaged by the feedback if it misses. Somewhat larger and heavier than defencer more familiar and versatile Leman Russ, the Malcador’s bulk and heavy layers of armour plating gives it improved durability.

While well-armed and durable the tank does suffer from several limitations. But its Lascannons are long range so I am hoping to knock out some armour as I roll up the table, even Crew Shaken or Crew Stunned results on enemy vehicles will be of benefit. Being intended for service in hostile environments and even the void of space, the Dracosan needed to be absolutely air-tight as nalcador to endanger derender lives of its passengers and crew.

The Malcador Heavy Tank is an ancient pattern of heavy tank, dating to the Age of Strife presumably it had some other designation before Malcador the Sigillite came around mxlcador they re-named it for him.

Like the Macharius Heavy Tankit resembles an oversized Leman Russ Battle Tankbut while the Macharius resembles a Russ that has been cut and extended in the middle, the Malcador looks like someone at Forge World made a Russ out of silly putty and stretched it. In many regions of the Imperiumthe Malcador passed out of common service maldador millennia ago. However carrying a large amount of flammable fuel in a separate trailer does make for a tempting target and, if defneder by enemy fire, can result in a fiery explosion which incinerates tank and crew; postings to an ‘Infernus’ are rarely well-received.

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. Ironically, if one was to replace the top casemate with an actual turret like the one on the Russuse the alternate box sponsons the Valdor and Infernus use and fix the engine, the Malcador would become a perfectly serviceable Heavy Tank for the Guard, becoming the Panzer IV to the Russes Panzer III.

However, they can not be taken in Squadrons and have Forge World’s inferior version of Grinding Advance, which simply eliminates the BS penalty for firing the Demolisher cannon that the Annihilator and Defender carry. The Dracosan was a common sight in the 30th Millennium, being manufactured under compact by several dozen Forge Worlds across the Imperium to standards only usually required of war machines destined for service with the Legiones Astartes.
