The warklin mauler resembles some of the more exotic tropical beetle forms, inasmuch as it has many legs, and a hardened carapace surrounding its segmented body. The two legs closest to its face are awkward looking, being bent back up over thick shoulder joints, and then arcing forward in wicked scythe-like points. The remaining legs are wide, and short, holding the hard-shelled body close to the ground. Glossy black eyes peer out from within the shadowy depths of a plated visor-like shell protrusion, looking adroitly ahead. What makes it different from its armored cousin is that the shell on the mauler is about five times thicker, and hence the mauler is much slower than its light infantry relative.
Very slice resistant. More-so than the Armored Warklins. With 400 in heavy edged and blood zerk going I'm still only landing grazing to good hits. Blunts or brawling gear a must.
