About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

New Plastic Hydra/Wyvern Kits Available from Games Workshop

Warhammer 40K Hydra

The Astra Militarium for Warhammer 40K now has its own codex that just released not too long ago. Players have been fielding the highest ranks among this faction in hopes to bring them to glory upon the battlefield. While the Astra Militarium work well in squads or groups, it doesn’t hurt to have some heavy firepower behind the main lines for added stability and stopping power. That’s where the Hydra tank comes in.

The Hydra is a flak-tank designed to take out any beast seeking refuge in the skies. Equipped with four massive anti-aircraft autocannons, there’s not much that can withstand a salvo from a decked-out Hydra. Now, for the first time ever, the Hydra is available in its own plastic kit from Games Workshop, so you can pick one up for yourself and give your ground troops support.

When you talk about the Hydra it’s hard not to mention its sister tank, the Wyvern. Designed for more long-range support, the Wyvern is a suppression tank that focuses on volleys of high explosive shells that rain down on the enemy from afar. The Hydra kit comes with the parts needed to construct either it or a Wyvern, so you’ll have some options for your build. The kit is available now, along with more for the Astra Militarium, such as the codex and units.
