Kharybdis Assault Claw.........................................................

260 points
Employed by many Legions as their primary ship-to-ship assault craft, the Kharybdis is a monstrous drop pod capable of carrying
large assault forces through the void and mounting significant firepower to blast a path through defending small craft. The arrival
of a flight of these ominous craft, boarding hooks extended as they approach their target, signals the end for the crew of any
vessel that dares oppose the Legiones Astartes of the Great Crusade. The secrets of these baleful war machines’ construction was
lost by the Imperium in the centuries following the Horus Heresy, but still persists in the hands of certain Dark Magos of the Hell
Forges of Chaos, who offer them up in return for a bounty of souls and slaves.
