Welcome to Librarium Online!
Put simply, I'm debating whether to try and get hold of one of these beasties, and I have a few questions:
- Are they really good quality, for the money they cost? No flash on the parts, etc?
- Are the rules for the single creature available with the model, or will I have to get the entire Imperial Armour book?
- Barbed or Scythed? I guess it's similar to choosing either Barbed Strangler Carnifex or Scything Talon 'fex.
- Has anyone got one of these and uses it regularly? How do they do? Worth it or not? Do your opponents ever allow you to use them?
Thanks in advance,
I myself have been planning on a Scythed Hierodule, simply because I like it. The good thing is that it isn't CC only, since it is equipped with an Acid Spray in addition to it's Scything Talons.
However, I have no idea as of yet about the actual quality of the models.
And I trust my friends to be sensible enough to let me play with it every once in a while, assuming I'm sensible enough not to try and field it all the time. =)
As for the rules, I'm afraid they require You to buy the Imperial Armour Update. Could be that if You ask FW nice enough, they send You a copy of the specific rules for the creature. Considering how much the models cost, they definitely should...
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
Go for the scythed one. biotitans are best disposed in cc, and the model is way better. The barbed one is on two feet with its middle arms holding a scrotum ammo sac. It just looks really shite.
