The scale of these diggings require similarly gargantuan machines. For the Resistance, these became prime targets for all sorts of modifications - the vast majority not for battlefield roles, but some have proved surprisingly effective. By far the most commonly used is the Avernus platform, a quadruped design with heavy armour, designed to cope with tunnel collapses and uneven, virgin cave formations.

These mighty Mining Engines are based off of the same heavy armoured hull that can withstand the strongest of firepower. Both variants come bearing two autocannons that ignore all cover making them excellent for clearing out those hidden units.

The Avernus has a large Mining Laser mounted on the back of the hull, this weapon fires a beam and punches through everything caught in its path, be that building, armour or infantry. The Cerberus swaps the direct firepower of the Mining laser for the more versatile Vent Repeater. The shots from this weapon can deal devastating damage and in desperate times the crew can overcharge the Repeater to increase the energy of the weapon, however this can come with terrible consequences.

Contains 1 multi-part resin miniature with parts to assemble as either an Avernus Mining Engine or a Cerberus Mining Engine.

Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Any miniatures or scenery are shown for scale only and not included.

Please note that Behemoths are massive kits, and advanced modelling projects. Extra care, attention, and hobby skills will be required to assemble and paint them. Because of that, this kit it is only recommended for advanced modellers. Some parts will need heating and bending to fit perfectly straight and slight gaps might need filling.
