So I'm rating adding this to my torne list what you think?
1 Techpriest Enginseers - Surveyor, Bionics
4 Heavy Bolter Servitors
Okay Bionics was extra points, but as far as i can see this is IG's only really viable surveyor user, and it should use it well with 4 Heavy Bolters, the Techpriest although i only play 2 tanks can heal them if needs be, but most importantly, as far as i read he isn't independent as longs as he's with them? so that mean a 5 wound powerfist/powerweapon.
Not bad.... or is it?
It's not that bad; its just has a low model count. If you're only taking it for the surveyor, then personally I wouldn't take it. Its not like any good infiltrator-user is going to set up within 24" in line of sight of an IG army anyways
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

lol ye, basically i'm looking for something thats gonna "fit" into the current list at around 150pnts. It looked like something fun, it'd be mostly for shooting
Ratlings would be cool, but i dont wanna put them up front and give my opponent a leapfoot
Veterans, well thats what i have now, but there irritating, usually die in some way
Russ, only have 2 bassies so it'll get shot to pieces
Sentinals, well i dunno about them but i imagine they'd die quicker than the servitor
Meh i'm torn. I've had this extra point problem for ages, never finding something quite right, usually the rest of my list win regardless, but it be nice to find something that bolsters my power
This squad is almost as point efficient then a normal Heavy Bolter Support Squad.
It has 12 BS 4 shots for 152points (19 points a hit [18.125 if you drop the surveyor and the bionics]) whereas the normal squad has 9 BS 3 shots for 80 points (17.78 points per hit).
The techpriest squad has one less wound then the normal squad but has much better saves for those wounds.
The unit rocked. Layed down a massive amount of ACCURATE fire, deployed as an elites choice (which is close enough to HQ that it doesn't matter much), and was fluffy (I took my skitarii, and the whole unit is heavily converted).
(Btw, he remains an independant character regardless, as nowhere does it say "he loses independant status" or similar, so it doesn't matter if his servitor retinue is present or not - in hth, he will ALWAYS be treated as a seperate unit, and thus can be picked out before attacking. This unit, in my experiance, does not do well in hth!).

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Its good. I prefer 3 heavy bolters and a plasma cannon. Given a signum, you should have no troubles overheating.8Y
Don't servitors count as wargear? I thought the techpriest could only take 50 points worth of that?
Boo on you just read up and ye seems so, oh well 2 heavy bolter is still cool
It's kind of unclear, since under the Servitors entry it says he can take up to four, but makes no mention if they are limited by cost.Don't servitors count as wargear? I thought the techpriest could only take 50 points worth of that?
I think you need to spend more time on your floor.

"Techpriest Enginseers have access to the Imperial Guard Armoury. Servitors do not count towards the Enginseer's wargear limit." (Page 43 i believe)
i think i'm going to put some tech priests in my army now
