so, thanks to the kindness of some lovely guy I was able to purchase some new models... well, old, new models.
Yay for striking scorpions! I must say, on the unstripped models, the painting quality is quite good too, so if you ever want to commission an army, I would recommend Cavalier over me as I think he paints a lot faster
Anyway, as you can see from the picture, there's 11 scorpions and one exarch. I have two options for the exarch, one biting blade and one scorpion's claw. Which would you recommend?
Then, the next question, and here's where my mind really is: I'm really considering vandalizing one of the normal scorpions and cut off his pistol arm, and replace it with a scorpion's claw. That was I can have 2 different exarchs.
I have no idea if 2 6-man scorpion squads are viable at all, or if this just means I have 2 different options for the exarch while keeping the rest of the unit the same, but... both the claw and the biting blade look so awesome I think it'd be a shame not to use them both.
Cav, I'm looking at you especially here as you've been using your scorpions a while now, would 2 6-man squads be viable?
also, should I make a scorp into an exarch, do you guys think I need to fancy up his armour a bit more?
