Is there a special meaning to having the Aquilla on every 13th tread?

The 12 regular track links represent the High Lords. The 13th represents the Emperor. The idea is that every world on which the Land Raider is deployed, has an imprint of the Imperium's authority in its very soil.

I presumed it was not by chance. Thanks for the answer. Are there any other special things like on IG boots?

shoe phones too. they discovered an ancient dvd of a series of Get Smart and confused it for a STC template

sojourner, i'm not doubting you, but where did you hear that? seems like quite a waste of brain space to just know that bud :)

also, i thought it was 13 high lords. it'd make more sense so they'd never be deadlocked.

It was in the land raider design article with Jes Goodwin when it was first released.

And there are 12 Lords - deadlocks agogo.

i concede then. goes to figure why nothing ever gets accomplished.

Why does everyone assume that big E doesn't communicate? Remeber kids, everything you have been told, is a lie.

Every 13th Rhino chassis is made into a predator. Was in White Dwarf.

I once had a boot that had a large button like tread on the heel and on that button was the text "Release The Pleasure." Sound like a Slaanesh trooper boot to me. Motivates them to march on.

The waffle about the land raider was in the issue of White Dwarf on or near the release of the land raider kit.

I'm physiologically incapable of forgetting magazine articles, it seems.

Is that true? Can you tell me more about the predators in the article i was talking about, I no longer have it... :D

For more superfluous information;

The fact about Land Raider tracks is also seen on the Land Raider poster. Which, of course, came with White Dwarf. :)

15-06-2007, 20:04
And it never ceases to amuse me that Chaos Land Raider has exactly the same treads. Even though 12 Lords were introduced post-Heresy IIRC and all that Emperor-hating should stop CSM from sporting his badge on their treads.

I always hated that too. Thank God for Forgeworld.


Ok, so I spent 10 on some tracks... But it just felt right!:D

Well, that and Tzeentch whispering in my mind...:angel:

I don't thin it was quite that; I remember that every 13th hull gets additional blessings (and every 666th is melted down as a sacrifice), but I don't recall reading about every 13th being made into a Predator.
