Skitarii is it's own codex. This is Cult Mechanicus. Two different factions but will work together and appears to have a cross-book formation or two.

One of my new rapiers. Needs finishing but you get the idea.
The other thing this has meant is that I have the spare upper bodies of those servitors. This might change my brass scorpion plans I put elsewhere on the forums. I am thinking that I might make it like a slave galley. With a servitors but don't stick any arms or guns on them, instead either make or just buy some cable to "plug" them in to the machine in various places. At the back have 1 to control the tail and maybe 2 legs. Another 2 (controlling the remaining 4 legs) or 3 (if I have 8 legs) maybe 4 (if I give them 2 legs or leg and claw each) in the middle. And maybe 1 at front for the claws and gun.

Idea being something like



but a lot better.

Probably go for 4 of them on there, 1 controls tail and 2 back legs, 2 in the middle controlling 3 legs on there side each. The last guy at the front would have claws and cannon...
Unless I buy another pack of those servitors then I could have the holy number of 8 of them... but I think that might be a bit of a squeeze.

As far as strapping them servitors to the scorpion, that's brilliant. That would give the whole thing a delicious Dark Mechanicum feel and be a truly terrifying centerpiece for your army.

Oh look another big formation from GW.
All the cult models and skitarii bundled up to cost you £500. The Cohort mechanicus up for preorder - can't really read the exclusive rules, but pesume they're good - after all you are paying £500 for it.

Get this, here in Australia, this sells for 31.5 pounds and for 50p more I can get an entire Chaos Space Marines Tac box set.

I have just dumped any idea of starting a Dark Mechanicus Army.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Both of those are nice though... keep thinking I need some for my R&H Dark Mechanicum.

Im pretty sure the Cult made Skitarii as their basic foot soldiers... they are not a different faction AT ALL. Its just a money grab like Militarum Tempestus.

I wasn't talking about fluff.... I was talking logistically.

And it's not a money grab, fucking sigh. Producing two books doesn't do anything magical as your overhead doubles as well.

God i fucking hate these god damn financial pissings that crop up in every fucking thread i read.
