yep. But in combat they can be insane and 4+ invulnerable save is good too.
But for 25pts they cost too much.
But I'm still winning wiht my harlequin army so I don't care.

 :-\  Actually, it is a 4+ Cover save, so that doesn't apply in HtH.  But, their Holo-Suits also half WS, so the only way an enemy can hit a Harlequin on a 4+ is if they have WS 10.

actually I just meant 4+ save in general. I know they don't get that save in combat.

little ironic how they get a good invulnerable save(almost) that some races might like, but lack something everyone takes for granted(hth saves)... just take a look at fantasy

That is a good point there. HtH saves are the only reason I never drop my Scorps on Marines. They just dont last. IG on the other hand :'( :'( :'( I almost pity the slaughter each time. Almost  8)
