A Vartijan Exo-Driller[1]

Vartijan Exo-Drillers are a rugged variant of Squat Exo-armour, that is widely-used by Necromunda's Ironhead Prospectors.[1]


Named after the legendary engineer Valya Vartijan, the Vartijan Exo-Driller, like all Exo-armour, was designed to protect Squat miners in the most hostile of environments. They are armed with a piston-powered pulverising fist and seismic crusher. Over the centuries, the Ironhead Prospectors of Necromunda have also upgraded their Vartijans with heavier weapons and better defenses to protect them in the Hive World's hostile Ash Wastes. These include a heavy flamer – which can also be replaced with a heavy bolter. Armed with the Vartijans, the Ironheads can fight off hostiles who attack them, or use them to claim prime dig sites in the Ash Wastes.[1]

Slabs of plating are attached onto its massive mechanical form, making its sheer bulk enough to turn aside all but the most dangerous of weapons. The armour also carries comprehensive suites of sensor equipment, able to detect valuable seams of ore and hostile gangs alike.[2]
