The Helium Voidflyer is a slippery adversary and a worrying technological twist in Shaltari naval combat. Troops on the ground are sadly familiar with the aliens’ capricious ability to teleport battlefield-level vehicles in and out of hot zones via their gate network. On a strategic level, naval planers have considered this tech limited to deployment of smaller constructs – not so, it seems.
The Helium can leverage the existing voidgate network to teleport across the battlespace instantaneously. That the Helium is orders of magnitude larger than anything previously known to possess this ability has raised concerns at the highest level as to what it means for the future – is this new tech, or have the aliens simply deigned to switch tactics? Either way, the prospect of whole starships vanishing and appearing at will likely chill the blood of any captain, despite the small size and short ranged weapons of this new threat.
This set contains 6 Shaltari Helium Voidflyers. In a horseshoe design, these ships are covered in the standard Shaltari detail – hope you like painting dots!
Cast in a single piece, the model has fine detail and an aggressive look. The Helium is unique in the Shaltari arsenal in that it is the largest ship able to use the Voidgate network to teleport! Put a squad near a friendly Voidgate and they can teleport down the chain to another part of the battlefield, ready to fire with their Pulse Blasters.
Contains 6 resin miniatures 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.
