    Penitent Engines?

    Does noone ever use them? The models are amazing, and though they are lightly armored, they seem like they could ravage things in hand to hand as long as you keep them out of sight as much as possible.

    See this thread on why they look cool, but aren't good to field.

    I field them from time to time. It depends on what army I'll be facing. I have used them successfully against Blood Angels and Imperial Guard so far.

    my 2000 point list will include 3 PEs, and 19 Repentia! I'm Crazy!

    As for the comment in the other thread about the Priest, he'll fit in nicely with my Repentia!

    I'll bre taking them no matter what, mostly because I want a challenge when I play. I don't want to win because I took 3 Exorcists, I want to win because I played a tactical game, using everything as effectivly as possible, and never giving up, trying teh imposiible, and maybe succeeding every now and again.

    If you want to use them go for it, let your opponant laugh when he may face 18 DCCW attacks.

    hmmm i don't use them coz i dont want to spend £90 on three models, i have other things in my life that require money other than warhammer

    Other than that I wouldn't mind using some once in a while but they'd be in units of three :/

    Me personally run them in my smaller point army i run 3 and just walk I mean there armor is bad but that’s why you hide them in terrain then have them pounce out I mean 6 inch move could fleet in sense another 6 then charge 6 your going to catch them im getting ready to run it in a tournament and ill let you know how they do.

    Ok this tournament does not count as any proof of the goodness of the engine.And no I didn’t do bad I did great but of course it would against the army’s I went against. Game one I went against a fire warrior lover who had like one anti vehicle weapon in the whole army and well I went first and got some nice terrain and slautered him. Game two necrons which at first I was afraid but that soon disappeared when he ran towards me turn one and had his scarabs yes disputing scarabs try to get me to no avail while well flamer charge massacre game rather soon when I shot 20 shot at one glancing it to shake it to heck which as you know I ignore then 20 shots again to immobilize it which was pointless because after all three flaming it was pointless because he would need to save all but like 5 to stay alive which didn’t happen
    and poor lord ran away from my assaulting machines no sweeping dow .Then last game which was the only good one where yes I finally used my sisters as something other then a distraction. I played thousand sons and it was annoying it was like psy atk psy atk ki away nooooooo.Until finally he lost a large squad to a ki and it contained the HQ which was psy atk constantly until pentient 3 came and finished them off. I lost 2 that time to I think bolt of change our something like that. Well from these sad games ive determined there good against bad players our noobs and non cc army’s imagine that. Of course I didn’t play daemon hunters our black templar all 5 of them that were there. I came in first as well I love victory points.
