No sir
That good
Well I mean good for me
Not so much for my opponent. Conceded bottom of Turn 3.
Now he was playing Dark Eldar, so I can't say it was a super-great test of the list's ability
But man...all those Scions dropping in everywhere...Bike Captains are brutal...hit like a ton of bricks...their hurricane bolters are actually deadly to T3 models LOL

The mobility really makes it good
Well that, and everything has a solid purpose
I wish I could get more CPs but taking the Scions on their own unlocks their regimental doctrine, which, with Plasma...is really decent
Exploding 6s on plasma gun fire? DON'T MIND IF I DO!
The relic bike is also really good. 2+/3++ FTW

Feb 09 2018 05:10 UTC
you think taking scions in a scion detachment is that good in practice?
I've been debating it for a while
I was originally just going to dump them in with tallarn stuff
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 09 2018 05:21 UTC
So in my very limited experience (one whole game) it actually generated several extra shots
And with hot-shot lasguns giving them front rank, second rank would generate more
I imagine psyker-heavy armies would wreck my list though
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 09 2018 06:23 UTC
hmm
I think
what I might do
is take a 'tallarn' patrol
for the chimeras
and shovel the guys that matter into thier own battalion

Happy B-day! It seems I'm almost exactly 4 months older (10.10). I have to say, unexpectedly, a lot of things changed for me, and for the better. A coincidence, but what a great one ;D

np :) i don't mind writing out walls of text to explain stuff
I don't get angry at these folk cos I blame GW for causing the confusion by mixing daemons into the CSM books

Ask @Kohato; if I have to write more then 3 sentences telling someone how they’re wrong, it gets... less then polite lol

@alphalas, we've had about half-a-dozen or so of those (#2445) since I took all the Daemons out of Heretic Astartes.

This all reminds me of a line for a Parliament song:

It would be nice if it let you sticky a post so it appears at the top and a generic explanation of why the daemons were removed could be pinned there
