Hey guys,

someone just pointed out somewhere in the dark city that scourges can mount transports-
Hellions as well. Does someone know if this is true or is there something against that?

Does it even make sense to replace say trueborn with scourges?

There's nothing in the rules that disallows Scourges or Hellions from embarking on our transports. Whether this is intentional or not, only GW knows!

Looks legal now you mention it.
The transport rule requires Drukhari Infantry and both Helions and Scourges have those keywords.

I'm not sure it's worth it for Scourges, but it would offer Helions some protection getting across the board.

The eldar wave serpent says "other than JUMP PACK models." So that rules out swooping hawks and warp spiders for them.

Helions and Scourges don't even have the JUMP PACK keyword..

I like to imagine a star destroyer affair with a swarm of tie fighters deploying once in range of the enemy... so a raider with a literal swarm of bat like hellions flocking from the masts, deck, railing...

@Massaen YES, that is how I envision it as well, far away they hold their bords in 1 hand and hang on the side hair moving in the wind, then once close enouhgt they jump on their skyboards and soar down to the enemy.
