Office Space is a fantastic movie. Three guys work in a cube farm at a software company. One decides to rip off bank transactions a la Superman 2. Hilarity ensues.

maybe I'm just unlucky, but I've never had any AdMech HQ perform ANYWHERE near good in any fight they've ever been in. Heck, even Cawl didnt manage to destroy a fucking RHINO in 3 turns of combat... And that dude is geared for that shit.
I cannot imagine a TPM doing any good for me in CC..

Dude, @Thairne , does it also rain on you everywhere you go? lol
Because that's mighty unlucky

lol. that reminds me of the show match they did for GS3, where it was the three triumvirates facing off against each other. it ended up being guilliman and cawl flailing at each other in melee, unable to deal enough damage to matter, before cawl finally failed his leadership test and fled off the table

the lil' black raincloud tries really hard, but I shoo it away as soon as it gets close enough.

at this point I try to avoid as many CCs as possible with them (well in that special case.. running away from celestine is a good idea for anyone :P) unless it's unavoidable... I really don't think any good of them in CC.

lol
the image... catfighting... until one goes "Mrooooew" and hisses off

but seriously.. 4 attacks, hit on 2s, wound on 3s, against a 4+ save with D3 is not that good.
thats like.. 2 wounds on avg
not exactly a beatstick

The TPM has the mechadendrites, and adding the second set from the pseudogen is what really makes him blend
Not the primary staff hits

cawl has 2d6 mechadendrites and while obv. not as good as a genetor, he still does jack for me anecdotally unless stuck with something like cultists ;)
But anything that wants to charge him is something that does not care about those in the first place.

yeah, the heavy stuff the TPM isn't good for either, but he's excellent for clearing hordes and helping electro-priests get to the big stuff

my experience is probably coloured from fighting either daemonettes/other slaneesh fuckery or harlequins to be fair... if I do an assaulty army against guard I see your point, the average guardsman will NOT like that

I'm glad that I face SM and Necrons, for the most part
I don't deal with Daemons or Harley's anymore, "Oh, AP means dick"

@DrTobogganMD at least with deathwatch that "ap means dick" equates to "wound everything on 2s, got it"
