Slower is true, but so much more durable! Another HP and another point of AV all around. More S10 attacks, too.
Yeah I can see your point... though it is just that they walk soooo slow!. 6" +D6" without reroll on running is so much worse than 12" with +D6" with reroll from Fleet. And the reroll 1-2 dice on Charge is nice as well. Though the formation bonus can do it if the Scorp goes in on the same turn.

@mayegelt nice to hear you bashed some knights
I think at end of game I had lost 2 1/2 Maulers and wiped him out due to chasing a few units down and eating the rest.
It is suppressing how quick a turn goes when you have only 9 models to move and only 1 that can shoot

Brass Scorpion with 1st War of Armageddon (735)
4 Maulers with 2 Lasher Tendrils (500)
4 Maulers with 2 Magma Cutters (540)
1 Void Shield Generator with 2 shields (75)

Just had the Scorp in the middle and flanked him with all the Maulers (4 per side). Had the Void shield just to make up the points and take a couple of shots out of the game.

I charged a pair of knights with 2 Maulers with Lashers and 1 with Magma and the Scorp. So -2 attacks on each knight took that down to just the 1 chance against me before I could smash his teeth in. Not to mention having 4+ Daemon saves then laughing at anything that did get through.


Only sad news is that I was told "Not to bring that army anymore if I want to play again."
TBH though I think I could bring the army again, I would just have to inform the opponent in advance so he could plan a little better, as Space Marines with a ton of Heavy Bolters and having bought enough skyfire to down any Princes or Thirsters that popped in to existence was not the best thing.

Had to use a few substitute models as the Scorpion isn't built and I only have 4 Maulers ATM.

mayegelt They were out of stock when I ordered Flesh Hounds through my LGS and they were back in for order in about 2 days. Seems like if you give them a ring asking for them they will take your money and print some off soon.
The other option you have though is going for some Flesh Hounds http://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/...unds-of-Khorne what are £30 for 5.
but also go for some Chaos Warhounds http://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Chaos-Warhounds what are only £15.50 and you get 10!
So you practically get 4X as many for your money.
Most people don't tend to care if you have a mixed pack of both.
Personally I have 10 old Flesh Hounds before they became finecast nonsense.
Arbaal the Undefeated's Flesh Hound normally acts as a Herald

Also have 10 finecast ones to make up
and also have 10 Warhounds as well.

DaisyDuke The other option is to use "fantasy hounds of chaos". Then you get 10 for less than the flesh hounds.
