They are servo-skulls, not servitors. They are used as familiars for Librarians and Inquisitors. For IW fluff wise they would make sence... mutilating the skull of an enemy / friend into a skull servant, but game wise not sure how you would fit it in.Originally posted by bebe@Feb 5 2005, 15:32
I'm relativerly new to 4ok. I'm picking up some flying skull modeld from a friend. Can these only be used as servitors or can i somehow incorporate them for fluff in a IW list?[snapback]321463[/snapback]
A Sorcerer's familiar perhaps?
No it ain't. for IW use servitors.a slightly line of thought ... I noticed that some peoeple were using chaos hounds as familiars ... is this in keeping with IW flavour?
Hell no, the IW don't have anything to do with the kind of work from Fabius, they rely on their weapons and their artillery, not soem mumbo jumbo magic cocktail from him.Also i have a Fabius Bile nicely painted ... is he in flavour with IW or should i just sit him on the shelf?
... but that shouldn't stop you using him if you want to.Originally posted by Dreachon@Feb 7 2005, 217

The iron warriors use a semi-organic virus to create obliterators. So fluffwise and ruleswise, why shouldn't a biologist be working with a bunch of cyberneticists?
Much as I would like to say yes, I'm afraid the answer is no.Originally posted by Melikor@Feb 5 2005, 17:28

Servitors are crafted from the remains of enemies of the Emperor, forced to work for him and his followers for the rest of time, while servo-skulls are the skulls of the loyal followers who wish to continue serving the Emperor in death. Of course, they don't start off as skulls, the skulls are decades old, the flesh is actually left on as a demonstration of the reward you get for pure and outright loyalty.
So unless you could convince your opponent that it was captured in some way and re-programmed, you probably couldn't get away with it.
In additon, I read that a normal Servo-skull as a familiar grants +1 I, but a Medi-skull grants +1 W, however when the first wound is removed, the skull is removed. Of course it only costs 15 points, so what do you expect?
