Yes or no? I need to know if they're worth it at all. They don't seem too bad.
From what i have heard, they are not worth it at all. HOWEVER, the box set is worth its weight in gold from a conversion standpoint.
War is my master; Death my mistress.
no, they're very unreliable, though they are the sexiest models ever
a random number of attacks
a random amount of movement
i think its a random direction too.
As a unit you pay points for, no they are not worth it. They chase the nearest enemy, slowly, with no saves unless they walk through cover, and get random number of attacks, and you pay a lot of points for this crap?
However, if you have the Gift of Chaos power in the army, it's a whole nother story. In KP games, you just kill the models you hit with the power. the rest of the time you slap down the spawn instead, nicely in with some enemies before they can really do much of anything to it, providing distraction and backup and hopefully sniping off an annoying weapon, sarge, whatever.
So, the model has it's uses, I just wouldn't pay army points directly for a spawn.
Plus they're sexy for conversion stuff.

I only use them paired up with 1 or 2 Dreadnoughts when I'm in a refused flank tactics mood. They make for a great distraction used like that.
