Golden Crucible Army Box (metal/resin/plastic)
WAR IS A CRUCIBLE! The sizzle of acid eating through armor, the roar of pyrophoric ammunition burning a target alive, and the hiss of gas venting from grenades, jet packs, and rocket shells?these are the sounds that accompany the Crucible Guard in battle. This army of alchemist-soldiers represents the most scientifically advanced military to hit the battlefields in the modern age. After their former headquarters was seized by hostile forces, the Guard reformed under the direction of a new patron and a cadre of radical leaders who advocate a more aggressive agenda. Emerging from smoke-filled laboratories and workshops, their faces veiled by gas masks and their bodies protected by advanced gear, they stand ready to use whatever force is required to reclaim what they lost and to secure their rightful place among the great powers of the Iron Kingdoms. Take command of the alchemical might of the Crucible Guard with this box, which contains a full army including elite rocketmen and combat alchemists along with a battlegroup of warjacks led by the warcaster Aurum Adeptus Syvestro.

The core of the army is the warcaster Aurum Adeptus Syvestro and his battlegroup of two warjacks. Syvestro is a master of his Faction?s trademark alchemy and uses this mastery to devastate his enemies. In addition to the battlegroup, this box provides a variety of soldiers. The Crucible Guard Assault Troops can weather the ranged attacks of any enemy as they move to within striking range with their Thermal Hammers. Flying above the heads of these slower soldiers are the Crucible Guard Rocketmen. They use their cutting-edge flight gear to speed across any terrain and rain down their gravity bombs where they are needed most. The army is further supported by a plethora of specialized troops. A unit of Combat Alchemist stands shoulder-to-shoulder with their allies on the front lines, using their concoctions to mask the army?s approach or to directly attack the enemy. Scattered across the army are Trancers, individuals overflowing with mental power that can be just as destructive to themselves as to their targets. Finally, from the back lines come rockets fired by the Dragon?s Breath Rocket Weapon Crew. These deadly missiles disperse chemicals softening targets for the rest of the army to finish off. This Box Set presents a great set of models to try out the new Faction and a solid starting point for building an even larger Crucible Guard army.
