A few months ago when I was struggling to come up with a suitable (and cheap) model to represent a Necron Warrior Wordbearer came up with the concept of a spider like robot: [link] [link]
Not bad for an Imperial dog
I loved it as it reminded me of the Tachikoma robots from a favourite anime series of mine called Ghost In The Shell. But then another obstacle for the project appeared which were the 5th edition rules. This caused me to ditch the spider robot because with the true line of sight rules a robot that short would be a nuisance for both me and my opponent.
All the models so far were coming out well but I was beginning to have my doubts about the Interceptors model: [link]
They were a pain to paint to a good standard and some Forgeworld stuff have the worst mould lines ever, which on a model this small is a problem. This made me reluctant to use them. Then I remember Wordbearers spider design. So I sat down with some bits and a new robot appeared
The Steel Scorpion! Overall it looked fantastic and was kind of cute due to its small size; however I could only fit two to a base.
The way it works in regards to the scarabs jet bike movement is its ability to jump great distances making it very agile allowing it to get where its need quickly. Kind of like these robots but without the webbing: [link]
Now Ill let the people decide on whether I go for the Interceptors or the Steel Scorpions?
