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.

Additionally, the Malcador Annihilator also suffers the same fate as almost every other Malcador variant.

Not that the Imperium cares about tank crews’ health. The turret was given five heavy bolterseach of which covers a roughly degree arc, ,alcador the tank can shoot at least one and up to two heavy bolters at anything in any direction in addition to the sponson weapons–lascannons, heavy stubbers, heavy flamers or autocannons.

As you may realize, the Malcador seem to suffer the most in terms of getting the short end of the stick. Do note that this thing is cheese incarnate. The pattern’s detractors hold that the variant is a hybrid intended to carry out two roles, neither of which it can fulfill with any real ability.

I distinctly remember my first turn of shooting. The centralized positioning of the weapon system allows the artillery piece to remain stable while firing its weapons even when positioned on difficult terrain. Oh yeah, it also mounts a Demolisher Cannon in its forward hull. Given their fluff cheapness to mass produce the Malcador and probably this variant and the annihilator, that is and therefore it’s common use in PDFs and the Tyranids coming The resulting chemical ‘jelly’ jets out and sticks to any surface, burning with intense heat.

A couple of people asked for a battle report for this list — so here I am, fulfilling that request. That said, the tanks were never destroyed, merely stored or “moth-balled”, as the practice is also known in the real worldand even though malcafor design is out-of-date and ill-understood, they are still made by M’khand and other Forge Worlds in limited quantities to fill the gap between demand for super-heavy tanks and the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 Minotaur’s deck layout is also unusual, as everything from the engine and drive systems to the weapon and ammunition storage is spaced fefender evenly over the entire superstructure. 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.

Despite this, Forge World has given it 2 Heavy Bolters in 8th Edition, likely because they just doubled the weapons of a Basilisk. While not yet in common use at that timeImperial logisticians had projected that its services were likely to be required in ever greater numbers Oh how they are wrong given the circumstance of the 41st Millenniumespecially where Loyalist Solar Auxilia were called upon to fight the Traitor Legiones Astartes and the heavy armored vehicles they had ready access to.

Posted By Jake — malcadog December ‘ Initial production runs were channeled to the elite Solar Auxiliain particular those cohorts operating against foes ddefender with heavy tanks or in the case of the myriad xenos enemies still infesting the stars, tank analogues.

More damning to the design is its engine plant, a thermic combustor design more commonly used in agricultural and industrial machinery.

This brings them down to only two models and the Demolisher Cannon attempts to finish them off at close close range. It scatters back and takes a single hull point off the Malcador and kills a single bike. 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.


Unfortunately, unlike most Malcador variants, the Mechanicus suddenly went full retard and forgot, malcadpr the most part, how to construct these things.

Defebder of this means that the Malcador became immune to all forms of penetrations except for ‘Explodes! Heavy Bolter 2 x Heavy Flamers. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Equipped with a fearsome array of weapons of its own, the Dracosan could steadfastly defend itself against malcadir counter-attack and pound enemy positions to dust before the auxiliaries disembarked to storm what remained of their objective.

While a few Imperial Guard regiments continue using the Malcador out of a sense of tradition, in most cases the large part of defencer tanks are either held in strategic reserves or relegated to ‘second line’ forces such as PDFs.

The Defender was just different and malcaeor further from a Leman Russ than the other two variants so I went for it. 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.

But I will capture the essence of the game and how the Malcador Defender List performed. This article is about the Super-Heavy Tank ; for the other usessee Malcador.

By the kalcador of the 41st Millennium, however, the Malcadir Mechanicus have lost all knowledge of how the engine works so they get extra finickiness while moving the same speed as every other tank. Finally some snaps of the Malcador on the production line… the more I look at this thing the more and more I want another and another! So while they still have certainly not dethroned the Leman Russ as the lord and master of Imperial armor, taking them is now actually a valid tactic.
