They are indeed not the greatest, definitely a missed opportunity, as if they had gotten them right I can guarantee more models would have been sold, myself included. With my Seraphon I would run at least one if not two batallions and they were fun, thematic and made sense for the troops that needed to be selected, or at least offered a variety. Giving an extra artefact, dropping everything in the battallion at once and now a command point make them still viable, but again here with DoK more unlikely to ever take one.
This right here is so frustrating, other mega battalions can be pulled off for lots less than this. That's quite a bit of harpy tax! And then no battleshock and one round higher big deal, witch brew, items and prayers can get there too for free.
With Slaughter queen in bold key word which is good for this so can put on a cauldron or have her on foot but again this harpy tax is most frustrating why not just do the same and put the keyword and let you choose or would have been waaaaay better if it was choose 2 from either Melusai or Khinaeri, opening up 4 different t possibilities= me buying more models and maybe actually using this one.
Haha that would be amazing I want shield missile weapons! Not much besides some of the new scenarios have moving objectives so I suppose just to have the option to move around, but not much to move around if it's dead lol
Ugh I want to like this one, and might have to bite the blood stalkers fee as will be great for my buddy's ironjawz where hes planning on stacking wagghhhhs to get 4-5 additional attacks which ends up being quite a bit of mortal wound back at him for his missed 1's to hit
This one is by far one of the worst, FOUR units of harpy? And out of the 6 units required for this 4 of them already start off the board, and you can only disappear one unit of the 6 at a time. Would bite at only 2 units harpy tax.
This is the only one I was for sure going to use and started converting some stromcast into my Snakecast using dark elf bits, which look so good I can't believe it lol but now the price almost doubled and no bold keyword for slaughter queen so have to take her on foot which is a tax because I would still want one on a cauldron as my general.
