A Macharius Vanquisher during the Siege of Vraks. But, also like many, I find the performance of its Vanquisher variant to be a smidge underwhelming. Even though the Malcador has that sweet ass twin-linked Lascannons, its unreliable engine, underwhelming armor, lack of a proper turret and disappointing side weaponry means that pound for pound, the Macharius Vanquisher offers more bang for your buck without the hassle of being immobilized because of reasons.

Out of all the Macharius tanks, this is possibly one of the most popular due to the power of the Vanquisher Cannons and the fact that it is a heavy tank which means it is far more sturdier than the common Leman Russ Vanquisher which is important since these big ass vehicles are going to be a giant bullet magnet on tabletop.
An easy add is to bump the sponsons up from single weapons to twin weapons, similar to sponsons found on other imperial guard superheavies.
From here we start to get into the more murky waters of adjusting roles and straight up adding weapons. For Forge Worlds seeking to secure large military contracts but lacking the necessary STC data, or who experience a shortfall in Baneblade production, the Macharius is a viable lesser alternative and has become a common sight in the regiments of the Imperial Guard.

Indirect fire could be done a couple of ways that I think would make sense. The Vanquisher Cannon is a more complex variant of the standard Imperial Battle Cannon with the most obvious difference between the two is that it is almost twice as long.
Though it is less durable and possesses less firepower than the Baneblade, it is also substantially less expensive in the fluff and more common. That’s not too bad an idea I suppose, though remember it only has a A heavy mortar, a quad launcher, half of a storm shard mortar would all be solid candidates.
A Macharius Vanquisher as seen from the left side. While stationary, they outperform the Macharius. While the regular Macharius is meant to be a baseline heavy tank, in terms of price efficiency, it struggles competing with its Leman Russ counterpart in terms of sheer utility.
Despite these failings it is still a powerful heavy tank and a whole load more useful than that silly looking Malcador; to reiterate what has been said before, the Macharius carries a very thick frontal armor and twin synchronized Battle Cannons in its main turret. Since General Vance Motherfucking Stubbs discovered that large quantities of Baneblades are prone to going missing, armies that needs lots of tanks e. So in effect the Macharius Vanquisher is more of an honest-to-Emprah heavy Main Battle Tank than the regular Macharius; capable of engaging any enemy on the ground effectively and is damn hard to kill.

Thus, most crews will fill the tank’s stowage bin with extra ammunition and strap on additional ammunition crates to the hull with predictable results.

It is the job of the munition-adepts of the Adeptus Mechanicus to rediscover vansuisher lost data, a tireless effort which can last years.

Contents [ show ]. In addition to resurrecting what became known as the Macharius, Magos Nalax also produced variants which replaced the tank’s main armament with alternate weapons. Other differences with the Macharius ‘Omega’ is the removal of the hull-mounted Heavy Stubbers, while the sponsons can mount Heavy Bolters, Heavy Stubbers or Autocannons.
Other Forge Worlds try to fill the gap in super-heavy tank demand by building heavy tanks of the Macharius and Malcador families.
