What a Thunderer may look like in non-Epic scale.

Squat Thunderers, just like their fantasy counterparts are units made up of the most hardened and veteran Brotherhood members. They appeared during the times of Epic, acting as a more mobile form of the Brotherhood Heavy Weapons Team. Thunderers supply withering support fire for the Brotherhood on the battlefield, devastating concentrations of enemy troops or tanks and forming strongpoints to hold the battleline. Thunderer units are exceptional in that their members are armed with Heavy Bolters, Lascannons and Missile Launchers

Tabletop on ye olde days[edit]

As previously mentioned, Thunderers act as a more mobile version of the Brotherhood Heavy Weapons Team. While they may not carry as much weapons variation or special weapons as the Brotherhood Heavy Weapons Team, the Thunderers excel at being very mobile.

If equipped with Heavy Bolters, the Thunderers become a walking, suppressive engine of Blob cleansing. If equipped with Lascannons or Missile Launchers they turn into a slow moving, engine of Rape, destroying entire tank formations from left to right, turning them into Necrons.
