I think I remember a female warrior or something, but it doesn't really matter what the footsoldiers look like, right? You can only be so cool when everything else on the field is kicking your arse.

Changing the subject again, anyone out there have any thoughts on the devourer. Was kinda tempted to get one since the changes, like the whole innate bolt& defensive magic idea then saw his CP!Now just kinda figure its a bit of a waste as will hardly ever work in defence or attack(cept maybe to finish off damaged multi track models)and the devourer not really worth its points otherwise(might as well have 2 soultenders 4 example). Still suppose its better than the original!!

CP 2 isn't all that bad if you simply look at it being similar to a model with Defensive shot and RAV 2. I don't think huge amounts of points are being spent on this ability.

 

Otherwise he is somewhat similar, although slightly less powerful than a Celestial Lion, a model which i am beginning to like th elooks of. You might very well prefer 2 Soultenders, but the Devourer has alot more staying power, and is far more useful should it take a wound.

I think the Devourer's new stats are awesome and I can't wait to take him. I've never done really well with the Soultenders, but I did the best when I had two.

 

Something I've noticed is that other models with Innate also have the mage or cleric SA that matches their innate spell, whereas the Devourer doesn't. Does this mean the Devourer isn't supposed to use its Bolt offensively? Innate doesn't that it needs mage or cleric to work so maybe I'm just noticing something thats not there.

No, it can be used offensively, it just can't purchase any other spells, the Necropolis Elite model 'Nightspecter' has Innate Spell (Fear), and no CP (therefore default CP 2), and no Mage/Cleric statistic. As the model doesn't have defensive magic, and Fear can't be used with defensive magic, it is a sure bet you don't need Cleric or Mage to cast spells, only to purchase them.

I never noticed that about the Nightspecter before. Thanks SE.

 

Has anyone come up with a list using Guros now that he seems to be a more viable leader model?

I still dont agree bout the bolt. if was range attack could shoot things of dv7,8 or 9 fairly ok but lowest MD (correct me if wrong havent got all faction books) is 10 and therefore much harder to get. unfortunately my most regular enemy crusaders who have MD11 so even worse! ::(: However havin read your posts i realised i was just lookin at it as special use creature& havin now compared stats to equivalents (eg celest lion) i guess ur rite SE it not a bad mid range beast between tender an spawn, may even get1 especialy as only spawn mini i havent got!
