    Painboss and Retinue

    I've always overlooked the Painboss for some reason, but damn, Cyborks are tough as nails.

    Normal Slugga Boyz have Strength 3, Toughness 4, and 6+ armor save
    Cyborks have Strength 4, Toughness 5 (!!!), and 5+ invul save

    Instead of Trukk Boyz, I am considering taking a Painboss and a 9 Cybork entourage mounted in a Wartrukk as a fast, hard hitting unit. Yes it costs more, but at least you'll be alot more survivable once u get to the front line (invul will help vs power weapons too)

    Anyone have any success with a Painboss and his retinue?

    well for a pain boss I would give him the mad doc tools with some grot ordelies, now with this your cyborks become slightly harder to kill since you can have a better chance to get them to stand back up

    Actually, in my 'nilla WAAAGH I use a painboss and a unit of trukkboyz as a mobile spearhead. I take a painboss and eight cyborks (why eight you ask and not the full kahoona? My warboss rides with them) and, truth be told, they chew through things like no one's buisness. Sure, there's only a max of nine of the buggers, but when they hit, they hit HARD.
    They also work well in a foot slogging army if coupled with 'Ardboyz.

    my friend had huge painboss & cybork success in a game we played (i was necrons)

    he put them in a trukk, zipped them out from behind cover and wiped out a unit of necron warriors in a couple of turns. he took 2 or 3 casualties.

    Just out of interest for any of you that are insane as I..... The painboss and retinue is a great opportunity to model some of the greatest orkses ever - MUTIES!!! Or, as they are more commonly known - Kaos Orks.

    Just in case.



    Dakka!

    I was thinking of just taking some slugga boyz and making some of those hydraulic hoses/wires (like those on the powerclaw and the warboss choppa) going from their backs to their biceps, legs, and maybe head. I'd cut out flat areas on the muscles/legs and maybe dab some metalic paint to show a metal connection

    Superglue both ends, dunno what material i'd make the hoses out of. Some type of thin plastic tubing would be ideal.

    I'm lazy when it comes to making cyborks (hey, you only need nine of the things), so what I ended up doing was leaving their arms off and using bits and peices from the various sluggas, shootas, and the chain choppa to give them each what looks like a robotic arm.
    This is called the 'lazy git' approach to modeling.
    Now, on the other hand, the link that I'm about to send both of y'all through PM will give you plenty of ideas, especially if you search for 'cybork' or 'painboss'.
    *EDIT*
    Well, I sent the link to Gus, but I can't seem to aim it at you, Lodrin. If you're interested, lemme know and I'll try again later.
