So, this is a unit I want in my Chaos army. Too much time on a certain video game I think. Basically a Scathis is a mobile artillery unit, with 6 turrets on board. Which allow it to fire an unrelenting stream of artillery shells onto an area. It will be mounted on a Baneblade Chassis.
Scathis in action: YouTube - The Power of Four Scathi (not my vid)
So... the rules:
Structure Points: 3
Super Heavy Tank
Scathis Artillery Cannons (Primary weapons)
Daemonic Assault, Shells of Chaos, Daemonic Possession.
Daemonic Assault: Deep strikes as per Codex Chaos Daemons
Daemonic Possession: Ignores Gun Crew Shaken and Driver Stunned results.
Shells of Chaos:
The Scathis can fire 4 differing shells. Each causing a different special effect. You must declare before firing and all the shots from the scathis will have this rule.
Shells of Boiling Blood: All shots are AP2 for this barrage.
Shells of Change: All shots ignore cover for this barrage.
Shells of Pestilence: All shots may re roll failed wounds for this barrage.
Shells of Ecstacy: All units under the template must take a pinning test at -2 LD.
Scathis Artillery Cannons:
Apocalyptic Barrage (6+D3)
For the first weapon Destroyed result, the Scathis loses the +D3 from its profile. Every subsequent Weapon Destroyed result reduces the number of shots fired by 1. A Scathis may not move and fire. Although it may fire on the turn it Deep Strikes.
Cost: 600 Points
Orks: W7/D2/L3, Necrons: 6/0/1, Eldar: 4/1/2, Marines: 0/0/0
Ogres: 1/0/1, Bretonnians 0/0/0
The only thing is, something with that much dakka really seems more of an ork thing than a chaos thing, if you really think about it. That said, it looks good, though having 4 different shells may be a bit excessive.
