We took a look at the Cthonian earlier in the week, so it's time to even things out a little by looking at Hurley, the Vanguard mobile tactical resource unit. Hurley is an autonomous AI capable of offering both tactical support and backup, along with serious offensive capabilities. Hurley's ace card is the ability to deploy and control drones, which are are able to fulfil several different support and offensive roles.

Here is a piece from the Rule Book about him -

The Vanguard Hurley is a tactical mobile combat information centre that interfaces with the Vanguard tactical network. Designed to provide Vanguard troopers with defensive and offensive support, the Hurley fulfils multiple roles through the use of autonomous drones that respond to the Hurley AI’s own instruction. The Hurley uses a class obsidian firewall, and is capable of preventing network intrusion and viral attack on the Vanguard Tac-Net.

It is also armed with a Kinesis Cannon, frequently referred to as the Comfort Gun.

Here is the original concept from Steve Tappin -

Here are pictures of the finished sculpt -
