I love Arco's i think they have sum of the coolist fluff in the 40k universe and they help point out that the Imperium is not a happy place for heretics. (or sum one with a big mouth like me)
one thing that i cant stand is that they can not ride in a transport this slows them way down and seeing as there a combat unit that well.... makes getting them into the fight not so ez. you can hit the crazy button and rage/run them down the field but this will most likely kill most of them. the best way to use them is in a allied list with IG firing at rang and have Arco's sit back and wait for them to try and assault or hit back with a counter charge. i don't have much else to say about Arco's but that i Love the fluff and im sad to say i cant fit them in my list.
-Good in Combat
-4+ Invulnerable save
-Cant Ride in a Transport
-Small Squad Size
-Die on Six's
-I need a Priest what in the name of the Imperium am i going to do with a Priest!?

In combat however a 6 or two can polish off the squad, 210 points gone. Though if you rolled a couple of 6s odds are that anything you were in contact with at the time is deader than disco.
84th Valhallan: 3/1/0
Inquisition forces from the 84th Valhallan and Adepta Soroitas: 6/6/1

Arcos would be great if they didn't kill themselves on 6's. Even if they can't ride in vehicles, your opponent can either shoot them, which they will always get a save (unless playing like GK or something) and that's one less shot into your other units, or they can ignore them and will be in for a surprise when these guys tear him limb from limb. Personally, I think they should be allowed in vehicles if they haven't popped their sims (because they just go bat-shit crazy) and shouldn't need a priest, but instead and Inquisitor or something.
I thought about putting the priest required for arcos in a group of flamer-dominions in an Immo, since they still can fire their flamers and hopefully there is no one left to charge after.
Another option would be in a squad of celestians with standart, hf/f and canoness, but then again those wouldn't fit in an Immo, only rhino and that would be sucky again.
I'm not using Arcos because I can't get them to work with my list(s)....but I'd love to.
