Tarantula Battle Strider - Discontinued
Dropzone Commander - Shaltari Tribes
This Dropzone Commander Shaltari Tribes Tarantula Battle Strider blister pack contains two (2) resin Shaltari Tarantula Battle Strider miniatures. All miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly.
The Tarantula is a smaller, more agile version of the towering Warstriders. Its primary armament is the highly advanced Gravatic Magnifier (also known simply as the Grav-Cannon). This weapon delivers crushing fore to anything with mass - the larger and heavier the target, the more devastating its effect! By its very nature, it is also effective against skimmers.
It is also armed with a nose mounted micro-laser, a small but deadly accurate weapon well suited to destroying lightly armoured targets from great distances.
Battle Striders also feature anti-grav assistors and clamps on their legs and feet, allowing them to climb sheer surfaces to attack from above!
These factors, coupled with increased survivability over most Shaltari grav-tanks makes the Tarantula highly popular with certain less subtle Warchiefs who would prefer to crush their opponents than out-manouver them!
