Magister Assaulter WIP by TheDrowningEarth Magister Assaulter WIP by TheDrowningEarth
The rumors about Heavy Assaulters capable of spellcasting turned out to be true - or almost.

"The Vesitanians have determined that some Revelation magisters opted for incarnation as Heavy Assaulters. A curious choice on their part, considering that magisters do not typically rely on heavy weaponry, unless it is specialized, such as a guncaster design based on a crew served weapon. Furthermore, the large size of a heavy assaulter is not advantageous in room clearing, while combat in confined spaces limits the use of its quickboosters. On the other hand, their size, strength, and speed are devastating in melee combat.

One such assaulter (Henceforth to be referred to as a Magister Assaulter) was observed carrying a shock-lance into battle. A shock-lance is a polearm with a projectile weapon attached, usually a mass driver. Shock-lances are also equipped with gyroscopic stabilizers that can improve their balance, reduce recoil from shots fired, and increase the impact of any blows delivered. The barrel is strong enough to withstand striking an adversary without harming the reliability or accuracy of the weapon's projectile system. However, they are seldom used since Heavy Assaulters prefer to use weapons dedicated to pure melee combat or ranged firepower.

The same Magister Assaulter was also observed using a psychic barrier to deflect incoming projectiles, while using its shock-lance to direct concussive blasts at Allied troops.
