True true, but if points are a limiting factor then a standard bastion with a weapon mount on top will work.

If I had a large arenough game id try out storming the aegis defence network. Have seen such a game, and unless you can get up close and personal very quickly, sheer firepower and unlucky rolling may ruin your day.

I believe that Varakir is asking about Prescience since the default space marine Librarians don't have access to Divination for rolling on to generate powers. Tigurius and some other SM codexes (Space Wolves, Dark Angels), sure... but not standard Librarians.

Damned Tiguris....

I find that having a Warpshmith/Techmarine behind an Icarus is fun - BS 5, attached to a cultist/scout unit is kind of cool - Cursing enemy vehicles is pretty fun too; or a techmarine on bike makes it easier for him to zoom aruond fixing things should the need arise.

True, I rarely take any other form of librarain due to the divination discipline. Without this however there are other interesting sorceries that can help you from behind a defence line (such as endurance or enfeeble- nice to give an tactical squad with lascannon and plas gun FNP, It will Not Die and Relentless. Good to perform a pincer movement on a unit that is essentially pinned by fire behind the ADL.

Aye that was what i was referring to. If i could give a libby prescience they would be a lot more common in my games. Using an inquisitor is a nice option now that we have access to them, but it does bump the points up in smaller games.

Well, nowadays I imagine you could bring allied Guard and run up to 3 Primaris psykers with your allied detachment (not even as your mandatory HQ). Pls a Wyrdvane Psyker squad if you want a 4th Prescience.
