I really hope they get some new unit options. I mean I know they can take most of the Elite choices because they are Militarum Auxilla but some Spec Ops sentinels or heavy weapon teams would be awesome.

Great video guys!

Personally I don’t mind the lack of options. Having several armies with pretty massive ranges I do enjoy armies with a pretty concentrated range, and as such a more concentrated and supported playstyle.

Ah, the Elysian Tauros. What a model! 20 years old and still makes the Invader ATV look like a reject G.I.Joe toy… change my mind 😜

Lawrence made the move from Vultures to Valkyries at the right time since Forgeworld have stopped selling the Punisher Cannons 🙁

I would love to see the Scions get a stratagem where they pick a single objective and up to d3 units can drop onto in in their movement phase and immediately seize control of it even if enemy troops control it. Maybe forfeiting shooting but can pile-in and attack to balance it, but something that gives them an advantage for holding off and dropping in with surgical precision in later turns no matter the odds.

these faction focuses are great, though as a newbie it would be great to have a picture of the model you’re referring too.

Its funny because they have ”Punisher Cannons” and got punished…. which is also a pun… Anyhow really enjoyed this guys, I don’t run a full scions list myself, but I do enjoy running a battalion alongside my standard Guardsmen, they really are great fun and can do the business when used right. Just a quick thought about diversity in the Scions list… it definitely would be cool for GW to expand the range. A heavy support Taurox equivalent could be cool, more guns in exchange for losing the transport capacity? Otherwise, a sort of boarding-action unit, with combat shields/shotguns/melee weapons… Read more »

There came a point in 8th when I started playing only Scions, and haven’t looked back… I’d love to see you all run a Scions list with a few Bullgryn for added durability and find out to what degree that changes playstyle. Maybe a few members of the Genome received a little too much growth hormones…

New subscriber, love all your stuff.
I feel like the model prices (in real money) could probably make the ugly list for tempestus.

My Colonial Marines themed guard army are saluting you guys right now…

But after watching this I’ve got a great idea for a Wayland Yutarni corps special force containment force… hmmmm🤔

Would love to share some pics.

Great run down team. LOVE ME some Spider and B-Bone (the sexiest man on Eagle St Pier!) action!

I’m surprised you guys didn’t mention the almost complete lack of invul saves, The Tempestor Prime not having refractor fields just seems off to me, especially with the special forces lead from the front mentality implied with the scions

I always was tempted by the Scions, expecially cause I see in them the Colonial Marines (@Bone: I’ll watch that film this week end too! I love the director cut edition!)… it’s just that I have already too many armies, and when I finish the “update round” on them it’s already time for a new codex or a new unit. Right now I’m thinking of limiting myself to a Kill Team squad for them and the ‘Nids to have some Alien-like scuffle with my friends… I just need a way to include a Valkyrie. Thank you for the review,as always… Read more »

Was waiting for this! A lot of great points in here, I’ve been running scions for about two years now and I think the PA did so much for these guys. I’ve only been able to play two games so far in 9th ed but they have done extremely well ( i did go first both games however), and I do agree that scions need another unit or two or maybe a new character type. Maybe give them heavy weapon teams( specifically a sniper team) which is in the lore or the elysian buggy. Here is to hoping! Stay safe… Read more »

I love the Scions. I wrote myself a 2000 points list of Lambdan Lions which I will finish within the next month(20 more Scions and Bullgryns and I am done). I started that just because of you, Lawrence! The Scions looked so freaking cool every time.I was also thinking about mixing 2 Regiments and putting Kappic Eagles into Valkyries and the rest of the army as Lambdan Lions.

Instead of scion special rules only being plastic scions painted different colours I wish the supplement delved into regiment specified special forces. Like Cadian Kaskin, Catachan devils, Death Korp granadiers

I quite like these as it’s interesting to see how 9th has impacted various armies but then I also feel they’re a little moot pre-codex. I suppose it would depend how long the codex took to come and how big the changes were but then you guys were involved in play testing so… *head explodes*

Great review, love some tempestus. Though mentioning the elysians did make me sad as you can’t get them any more and they are my favourite guard regiment fluff wise.
