Certainly give the GW power weapons a run for their money!
But as well as the models, we also got a better idea of their background and where they fit in the universe.
Assault Troopers are fully encased in power armor and armed with an energy blade to make quick work of heavily armored targets or lighter fortifications. Their ranged weapon is either the MP72, a stockless assault rifle that fires explosive 20mm rounds or the M402 eight shot 40mm grenade launcher for those stubborn targets. Each trooper wears the fluted armor of an assault trooper and a heraldic tabard bearing his households colors.
Assault Trooper are indoctrinated from the Valkir, those soldiers who show exceptional courage, drive and aggression while serving with the Valkir may be offered a place within one of the Ritterorden “knightly order” Modeled after the 14th century knightly households, the Ritterorden act as a semi-autonomous military. Although closely tied to the parent faction each Ritterorden has its own traditions, uniforms and chain of command that are unique to that household. Regardless of which household a trooper serves under, Assault troopers value aggression above all ells , charging in where angels fear to tread is just another day at work for these soldiers.
Stay tuned for more in the next day or two.
