Just a quick question. I had always counted Cybork body as a bionic sort of thing because it is when you think about it, but I see many people here reccomending giving a warboss mega armor and cybork body, is there somewhere that says this is allowed or is this just interpretaion? I always figured this was one of the drawbacks of mega armor.
The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
Cybork body and Mega-armour are viable options for you to use. Perfectly fine, and perfectly fluffy (although if I saw someone trying to use one in, say, a codex-esque Snakebite list I'd thump him a good one).
The bionic bits that you are thinking of are the bionic bonce and the bionic arm, the bits actually labled 'bionic'. The reasoning for not taking these? Well, the first is kind of obvious, the second I've never really been that sure of.
Well, if you could combine bionic bonce and mega-armour, you would end up with a 1+ save. Since you can't HAVE a 1+ save, this is a no go. Although it would be a BLAST for you to have a warboss with that sort of save. Just have him go terrorize some regular ground troops and laugh as their attacks just bounce off of him.
Unfortuantly, the reasoning for not being able to take the bionic arm never really made much sense to me... it would be nice to get an additional attack with the powerklaw for having two CCWs. But, eh, not yet. Perhaps in the next codex.
However, yeah. Cybork Body + Mega-Armour = Awesome (even if it's over-priced when compared to both Beakie and Spikie Beakie Termie armour).

The only benefit there would be to having a 1+ save is that he would get a save against lascannons and plasma weapons. A 1 always fails, regardless of modifiers so he would still fail on a roll of a 1 but the LC and plasma wouldn't be able to ignore his armour.
