Citadel Ambull (OOP)
Ambulls are subterranean xenos creatures native to the desert death world of Luther Mcintyre IX
Ambulls can easily survive extremely hot temperatures, which has led
to attempts at domestication on several hot desert planets. As a
consequence, Ambulls can be found on desert planets throughout the
Ambulls have huge barrel chested bodies and an ape-like stance,
their arms reaching almost to the ground, while their legs are crooked
and short. The Ambull's most characteristic feature are their huge
expandable jaws. Their eyes are able to sense heat.
The Ambull's limbs end in iron-hard claws used for digging
through the soft stone of their homeworld. Ambulls will excavate tunnels
in which to live, spending most of their time underground. These
burrows can often form extensive underground complexes. Their tunnelling abilities have also defied attempts on many Imperial worlds to domesticate or corral them.
Due to the intense heat of Luther McIntyre's sun, the Ambull's
subterranean lifestyle is shared with many of the death world's
inhabitants, including the Ambull's favorite food, the Crawler. Ambulls
will pursue prey through soft rock by tunneling at considerable speed.
Ambulls were sighted on the Ice World Simia Orichalcae while the Valhallan 597th were protecting a valuable promethium refinery. It was later speculated that they had arrived through a warp portal opened from some unknown desert world by a Necron
scouting force that deployed to Simia Orichalcae. These rogue ambulls
killed several promethium miners in the lower tunnels, while Commissar Ciaphus Cain and a Valhallan scouting party slew a great number of the beasts in the
tunnels. It was noted that they could tunnel through ice as easily as
sand or rock, and were remarkably survivable away from their normal
After the Simia Orichalcae campaign, Cain dined with Inquistitor Amberley Vail at an upscale hotel, which offered ambull steak on its room-service menu. Logash, a Tech Priest, had earlier told Cain's aide Ferik Jurgen that ambull meat tasted much like grox.
I'm not sure is model has been stripped or not as there's no evidence of paint! The nub that should be on it's left foot to connect to a square slotta has been shaved but this does not effect model detail at all.
