I've got a Techmarine that I've assembled and primed, and considered using as part of a list. Looking at the cost of his attached Servitor unit, though, I can't see how they're justifiable for their cost. Why wouldn't I just pay for more Marines and het a better deal?
You can run the servitor squad separate from the techmarine if you want. Put them with some heavy weapons and they can act like another tac/dev squad. But generally, they are used as extra wounds for your techmarine. That way, if he's running around on his own, you can place wounds on the servitors, not him. Even just one is a fairly cheap extra wound.
So if the Techmarine joins a unit of Servitors, he can't be singled out in assault?
Servitors are like Ogryns--they're both fun and potentially valuable units that GW just can't seem to get right. It's easy to see how just a tweak or two would do the trick, but it never seems to happen...one Codex after another.
