As the proud new owner of a CSM Boxed set (and plastic lord and obliterator) I am foraying into CSM's.
It did occur to me that posessed marines are quite frankly, hideously bad for the cost.
Am i missing something?
P.S. Rules niggle: when you roll their ability you get the aditional skills or equipment. The only equipment is a power sword.
They come with a ccw.
does that mean they then get a additional attack (Power weapon and ccw)
- It seems to me they do, so there's a one in 6 chance they're usefull.
What's everyone else's opinion of them. (Beautiful parts and sprues though, I saved the wings for possible raptor conversions if i can get more)
I also decided to just paint them quick, (Oh god more things to paint. Moving from IG to wfb O&G was a mistake.) and I am going to undercoat white, wash and detail. Job Done in a couple of weekends. If it work's well i'll post the results in a tutorial, anyone got any advice on CSM painting like this?
For your rules question I think rolling a 6 on the abilities chart converts their CCW into a PW rather than in addition. Don't they get an extra attack to make up for the fact that they only have 1 close combat weapon.
You are sadly right however. For competetive play they suck.
When I bought the £50 box set I just mixed all the possessed bits into the 15 normal CSMs you get to give me 20 CSMs. It makes them more interesting when some figures have the running legs and others get the odd lobster claw or mutated chestplate.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
You can always use them as Daemons, or bits for Daemons, or lend them to your Fantasy playing friends for use as Forsaken. Oh wait, those suck too
