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. But I will capture the essence of the game and how the Malcador Defender List performed.

Some of the Legions also took it into service to support their Fellblades and Typhons. Like other Malcador patterns the ‘Infernus’ still suffers from an underpowered engine, causing it to struggle on steep inclines and overheat. Additionally, the Malcador Annihilator also suffers the same fate as almost every other Malcador variant.

Its main armament is the venerable Battle Cannon while secondary fire comes from a hull-mounted Heavy Bolter and sponson-mounted Heavy Stubbers ; in some tanks these weapons are replaced with Autocannons and Lascannons for additional firepower. A heavily armed and armored carrier, the Dracosan was large enough to accommodate a fully strength Solar Auxilia Infantry Tercio of twenty auxiliaries, and heavily armored enough to protect them from all defdnder the most intense of enemy fire.

Malcadof 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. In addition, apparently Big Bobby G. My arms ached from the fist pumping after that!

Three rolling across the table would be amazing! Unfortunately, its drive was always temperamental at best, and between the loss of knowledge that occurred during the Horus Heresy and ten thousand years of repair and attempted retrofitting, the Malcador of the 41st Millennium is no faster than any other tank and prone to engine malfunction, represented in-game as a fifty-fifty chance of being completely immobilized rather than slowed down by engine damage.

I guess it has sponsons now?

Malcador Heavy Tank

Some Infernus tank crews will use corrosive chemicals as their ammunition instead of Promethium, turning the Malcador Infernus into an oversized Bane Wolf on steroids. That said, the tanks were never destroyed, merely stored or “moth-balled”, as the practice is also known in the real worldand even though their design deender out-of-date and ill-understood, they are still made by M’khand and other Forge Worlds in limited quantities to fill the gap between demand for super-heavy tanks and the production of “proper” super-heavies like the Baneblade.


Because yes, 40k is that ridiculous of a setting to have tanks that can be put soundly into a category like that. Meanwhile the Malcador Defender misses again with its Demolisher Cannon, some other weapon from the Malcador does a wound to the bikes and one dies.

Given the necessary resources and expenditures to build such an exceptional vehicle, the Dracosan was employed almost exclusively by forces configured in the Solar Auxilia pattern, whether these “regular” Excertus Imperialis units or other forces following the same order of battle, such as the household troops of certain Rogue Traders Militant or, occasionally, the defended retainers of high status Imperial Commanders.

That and the fact that it can deliver what amounts to dsfender shot from a twin-linked basilisk point-blank. These tanks were used to horrifying effect to defend breaches in the heretical lines during the Siege of Vraks.

Someone managed to fix the Malcador by kit-bashing it with a Russ.

This is especially common with regiments like the Death Korps of Krieg for when complete genocide of the enemy is ordered. Plus I just really like it, as one now seems like not enough! Although the Malcador Defender is very cramped, fitting a malcaor crew of 8 into its tightly-packed and blazingly hot hull, it is as prone to engine problems as the other variants of the Malcador tank, and its battlefield role means that it seldom operates far from support or resupply.

Retrieved from ” https: 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.

Due to this fact, it’s rather surprising mmalcador Kriegers don’t love them. This can mitigate the design’s inherent problems and its firepower and considerable malcadkr can make it a valuable asset to Imperial forces for both offensive and defensive engagements.

The Malcador Infernus tank 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 pintle-mounted Heavy Stubber, rough terrain modifications, track guards, a Searchlight, and Smoke Launchers.

Initial production runs were channeled to the elite Solar Auxiliain particular those cohorts operating against foes equipped with heavy tanks or in the case of the myriad xenos enemies still infesting the stars, tank analogues.

While the vehicle is equipped with a Searchlight it lacks typical Smoke Launchersinstead generating an impromptu smoke screen by injecting fuel into its hot engine. Ads by Project Wonderful! In many regions of the Imperiumthe Malcador passed out of common service many millennia ago.


This sometimes bites the Imperium in the rear; during the Siege of VraksMalcadors were withdrawn from storage and pressed into battle by the traitor forces. A Malcador Defender Heavy Tank, this vehicle was damaged and then abandoned by Planetary Defence Forces during the defence of Amarah Prime during the Orphean Warit was later restored and pressed back into combat by the Necromundan 8th Regiment.

The Malcador is now actually somewhat good! This page was last modified on 17 Septemberat Poor bastard can’t catch a break. Community Forum Discord Server. Immolating enemies is not the only thing the Infernus can do. For anti-armor, they kept the hull-mounted Demolisher Cannon. Unfortunately, unlike most Malcador variants, the Mechanicus suddenly went full retard and forgot, for the most part, how to construct these things.

The Melta Veterans and Land Raider before its popped. As Superheavies, they are totally immune to the entire vehicle damage table. During the Siege of Vraks the 88th Siege Army’s intelligence officers believed that there was no more than 30 Valdor tanks stored inside of Vraks Prime’s vast Departmento Munitorum storehouses, and these tanks were not utilised by the Vraksian Traitor Militia until much later in that infamous meat grinder.

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. 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. The few Malcadors that remain in the Emperor of Mankind ‘s service have been relegated to the Departmento Munitorum ‘s strategic reserve, to the arsenals of second-line Planetary Defence Forces or are maintained in active service only by a few units of the Astra Militarum due to ancient tradition.

The Chaos Spawn just ran around their end assaulting and killing everything.

While perfectly serviceable in its normal roles the engine is underpowered in relation to the Malcador’s size and weight and can be more easily knocked out by malcdaor fire.
