The Shadow is one of the Scourge’s most dangerous close action killers, and that’s saying something. Armed with the terrifying Magnetron Lash, it fires arcs of energetic particles that are particularly adept at super-charging heavy armour, rending it apart before delivering a destructive payload.
Trading firepower for supporting ability, the Umbra has a more subtle approach. Its defining characteristic is the Oculus Booster which pre-heats targets at weak points, softening ships’ hulls for oculus weapons to bore straight through.
This set contains 1 Scourge Battlecruiser, able to be built as either a Shadow or Umbra class.
Working with the infamous Scourge profile, these Battlecruisers start off sleek at the prow before opening out at the back into a mass of fins and tentacle-looking extrusions. The prow features a dizzying array of weaponry, while the fins house launch bays for added threat.
The Shadow’s Magnetron Lash cements it as the Close Action killer in a fleet full of Close Action killers. With the Mauler special rule, this unique weapon combines Close Action Burnthrough damage with the Scourge’s typical Scald, making a weapon that is as dangerous as can be. The Umbra takes a more back-field approach. Its Oculus Booster provides a bonus to friendly ships firing at a target that it has softened up. Increasing the range and potency of Scald on other Oculus weapons, this ship is a true force multiplier.
Contains 1 resin miniature and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.
