im trying to decide between the two. the scorpions superior speed and lower cost along with the ignores cover demolisher cannon are nice, but the D weapon and the long range s8 on the LOS are great plus psychic powers don't auto perils when you cast on it. you guys have any thought on which is better?

Depends whether you think you'll be tarpitted by a large infantry squad (in which case the Scorpion is better, with extra stomps and all) or if you think you'll run up against super-heavies (Knights and such), in which case the LoS might be better. The Be'lakor Invisible LoS is a pretty cool combo, I admit... expensive as hell though it is.

I was thinking along those lines. not too sure what i'll be running into. might throw in a dread claw full of melta to take care of knights or ranged d weapons. elder/dark elder, bike spam, and drop pod swarms are likely to be in the mix.

well, given the retarded looking model of the LoSkulls, i'd always opt for the brass scorpion...

they could have done better with it. I wish chaos had some cheaper super heavies.

Whoa now, let's not slander the names of those out there who are developmentally delayed by associating them with yon Mr. "My stubby axe arm can't reach anywhere near the ground."

...for all that a Lord of Skulls being made invisible by Be'lakor is a tempting option, I can't help but feel like going with the cool model is the better option. Plus, hey, when the GBSoK explodes, it should be in the heart of the enemy line, taking a whole lot with it!

so very true. you can still book the scorpion and cast cursed earth near it so its not too bad as it is. just no invisibility

I have a few baneblades, they just feel like cheating if I use them with my CSM or demons.

I tend to use them with my traitor guard, renegades and heretics, or whatever theyre called this week. they feel right in that army.
