Haha that's what I get for not reading the earlier posts in the thread.

I think I'd rather save up for a Kharybdis. For now, I'm focusing on my Daemonkin and not my CSM. It will also give The Dark Works a chance to release his rapier carriages (and for me to buy one).

I am not buying a real Brass Scorpion, but making one like



or maybe



The first one takes 2 almost complete defiler kits and a few other bits like dozer blades and stuff. The 2nd takes a 1 1/2 defiler kits and a few bits off a Dark Eldar raider. If you get another defiler (so 3 in total) and another Dark Eldar raider you can actually make 2 Brass Scorpions.

That is how to make the 2 for 3 defilers and 2 old 3rd edition raider kits. So total of £103 for the defilers, and ? for the old raiders, but TBH I think I could probably make similar spikey front by cutting plasticard sheets in V shapes but don't know...

Loving the rules for the Electro-Priests. Either a potential two extra hits per mode per 6-rolled, or a 3+ invulnerable save for the game if the unit wipes out an enemy. Very very nice. The models are... ok. Truthfully I wasn't expecting anything exceptional since they are bare-chested men, but what they have done is pretty good, and the weapons look cool.

The Dominus as well has sweet rules, (VOLKITE IN 40K!), and it is very good to see that he can heal your vehicles and your units, a Medic Warlord. I am curious how many points he costs, since I will definitely be putting one in my army with a bodyguard unit of either Kastellan Robots or Kataphron Servitors.

I am a little disappointed in the new super Formation. Really, it's just another Decurion, although backwards. Instead of giving you a giant detachment with bonuses, and then letting you fill it with formations, you start with the formations, and add the bonus.

And like most Decurions, I dislike being told what to play. Even if the options and bonuses are nice. The free upgrades alone makes the army worth it, because you're effectively playing a few hundred points more than your opponent.

The fact that the electro priests are 18 points per model of T3 with only FNP and a 5+ invuln (at first) for a save, it looks like... makes me wary and weary.

Does anyone know if the legs of either the tank servitors or onagers are similar in size to tau broadsides? I really want to use their legs (X on the broadside).
