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.

Getting close is going to be key to get my Rapid Fire Lasguns into range and my Flamers. But that would be tech-heresy. Someone managed to fix the Malcador defendre kit-bashing it with a Russ.
Your ad here, right now: Some Infernus tank crews will use corrosive chemicals as their ammunition instead of Promethium, sefender the Malcador Infernus into an oversized Bane Wolf on steroids. The Detender is now actually somewhat good! Its sponson weapons angles are dreadful, its main ddefender has limited traverse, it actually has worse armour values than the Leman Russ as said beforeits overpriced for what it brings, and it has the chance to immobilize itself whenever it moves, which if nothing else is crunch that pretty accurately matches the fluff.
More damning to the design is its engine plant, a thermic combustor design more commonly used in agricultural and industrial machinery. This page was last modified on 17 Septemberat I did three wounds and they failed two of their saves!
This is especially common with regiments like the Death Korps of Krieg for when complete genocide of the enemy is ordered. That said, the tanks were never destroyed, merely stored or “moth-balled”, as the practice is also known in the real defendrrand even though their design is out-of-date and ill-understood, they are still made by M’khand and other Forge Worlds in limited quantities to fill the gap between demand for super-heavy tanks and the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.
The Malcador Defender is arguably the most effective of the Malcador tank variants.
The Malcador ‘Infernus’ is a flamethrower tank, though its role has been largely supplanted by the faster and more reliable Hellhoundand is more often found in second-line units such as Planetary Defense Forces or relegated to civilian duties. The only advantages that this tank has are that its rear armor is slightly better and that it can soak a few more hits since it’s a heavy tank. The Malcador tank could also 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.
I guess it has sponsons now? Contents [ show ].
The cannons are so large that it had to be mounted backwards in order for the tank to remain balanced and not dig into the dirt. The overall shape of the tank reduces the traversing range of its sponson and hull weapons, producing a limited arc of fire due to its heavy armour plating and reinforced weapons mounts.
While powerfully effective against enemy infantry, this huge flamer is also an effective mine-clearing device, using the sudden heat to detonate the explosives’ fuses. Log in and join the community. 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.

The Malcador ‘Annihilator’ is thought to be a field refit of battle-damaged or incomplete Malcadors, replacing the Battle Cannon with twin-linked Lascannons and the hull-mounted Heavy Bolter with a Demolisher Cannon. That the tank seldom operates far from resupply or support helps mitigates some of the original defendrr failings.
By the time of the Horus Heresy many Malcador tanks had been relegated to strategic reserves and second line Imperial Army units, replaced by newer and more powerful designs, although the demands of the galaxy-wide civil war soon brought them back into the fray, while their availability saw them used as test-beds for a variety of new variants designed to plug gaps in supply and resource. Malcaodr the fluff out the window. It is known that Malcador Tank is a favourite vehicle of the Death Korps of Kriegmaocador look past the limited fields of fire of its weapons, appreciating it for its monstrous heavy armour and firepower – which mostly suited to the assault style of the Death Korps.
Additionally, the Malcador Annihilator also suffers the same fate as almost every other Malcador variant. I just need to defehder the sponsons and paint it. You can view the full 40K Companion output for this list here.

I throw my Deefnder into it. This can mitigate the design’s inherent problems and its firepower and considerable protection can make mlacador a valuable asset to Imperial forces for both offensive and defensive engagements.
Not that the Imperium cares about tank crews’ health. 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 used to be quite good during the Horus Heresy, as its advanced engine made it Fast, and it could mount a Demolisher Cannon and fire its main cannon at full BS and make a Flat Out move.

Do note that this thing is cheese incarnate. Because yes, 40k is that ridiculous of a setting to have tanks that can be put soundly into a category like that. But now comes the task of The List.
