Yeah the scions of mars ability. Just wandering what your opinion on this is.
personally, i don't use many vehicles, so i don't like the idea of a techmarine hq. wut was GW thinking? Servitors have lower stats than spacemarines, yet the combat servitor costs more than a basic SM (because of powerfist). there are other hqs that are much better. Unless u have lots of vehicles, I wouldn't even take a techmarine.
Sometimes, you've just got to say, "what the f***" and take some chances.
ive actually been giving a lot of thought to using techmarines latley. not as an HQ choice really, but for a mere 100 points you've got a multiple wound, 2+ save character with a power fist, a twin-linked plasma pistol, and a flamer. correct me if im wrong on this one, but a techmarine with full harness gets 6 attacks on the charge...
2 both servo arms
1 two weapons
this guy is a close combat dynamo, who i wouldnt hesitate having lead a tactical squad. hell, he can take wargear so let's raise his cost to 130 points...and give him a bike! there's no other HQ choice i know of that has those stats and that wargear for the same cost.
yes, i would take one of these guys as an elite or hq.
on the scions of mars note....although it would be a bit expensive...how 'bout a veteran squad all decked out with that 15 point cost termie armour...and the infiltrate skill =0 (now then, how to model a termie with a plasma cannon)
EDIT: in response to Walrus' post above....deffinitely don't use servitors. just have the techmarine lead an exsisting squad

Firstly, you can't give a TM a bike if he has a servo-harness. He also comes with a Bolter and Power Axe, so you need to pay for a bolt pistol.
However, take one normal TM, add BP and Combat Shield. Chuck him in a rhino with a cleanse and purify (meltas or flamers, or one of each) tactical squad. This makes a very nice squad and MC killer.
why can't you give a full servo TM a bike? it doesn't say he can't have a bike...it just says he has access to the armory, wherein Space Marine Bike is an option. it may not make sense, or seem realistic....but neither does being able to fit ten marines in one rhino...
warhammer isn't realistic and so isn't GW. you just have to accept these kind of weird things.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Give him a MC plasma pistol and pump 4 basicaly twin linked plasma shots into anyone getting to close. Plus a powerfist as you only lose I4 instead of I5. Its very fluffy but he basicaly becomes a super veteran sargeant rather than a leader (rites of battle).
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
He's a horrible HQ choice.. 4 INT and 4 WS basically means he's an extremely weak CC character and that is what marine characters need to be
There is really no reason to take him as a HQ choice, +1wo doesnt change the fact that he has 4int and 4ws
I cant see a TM as a HQ, IMHO they are more of a squad support unit, I'd never take one with servitors but I can see adding one to a Assult unit(sans jetpacks) or a tac squad.
breath, sight, squeeze.
now double tap just for grins
and Another One bite's the dust.
A bolter round for all that oppose the Emperor.
