Pass in Review: Fire Support for the 187th Dragoon Regiment in WH40K


Lehman Russ Tanks and Chimera Infantry Fighting Vehicles aren’t the only means of support for the troopers of the 187th Dragoon Regiment (Composite) in the dystopian universe of .Warhammer 40,000 (WH40K).

For protection against air attacks, there’s at least one Hydra flak-tank available.

(Note:  All the vehicles featured in this post were painted by my friend Dan).

For ground targets the regiment needs to pound, there’s the Wyvern Suppression Tank.

In addition to vehicular fire support, the 187th Dragoon Regiment also has numerous dismounted heavy weapons squads.

These units come equipped with lascannons...

...or mortars:

I have a couple of autocannons, but no crews to man them.

When the regiment really needs to “reach out and touch someone,” the commander calls upon the temperamental Manticore Rocket Launcher

Finally, the Manticore is in position to rain fire upon the enemies of Mankind holding the distant hill top:

So there you have it.  All the supporting firepower available to the 187th Dragoon Regiment—due to the limit of my collection and available storage space.

My next upcoming WH40K post will feature the troopers and infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) of the 187th’s F-Troop.
