I can definitely get behind a useful infiltrating unit in the codex Twisted Evil

Truth! They'll be coming out en-masse soon. Finally, eh?
Though they definitely got worse in CC, not having a save and all. I guess they'll get FNP eventually but still. Unless you're playing with one of the new Coven formations, DSing a Haemy with Cronos & Talos nearby to buff their FNP.
Hmm...

Tried a crew of 6 mandingo's in a 1000 game vs Space Pups and found that they are actually usable now.... They got they're but handed to them in CC but as a means of objective sitring/tar-pitting they're not bad.

My Nightfiend was Mandrake of the Match on Sunday. Smile

Infiltrated out of sight of my opponents Long Fangs, came forward, Baleblast... did nothing.  Took an ignores cover Whirlwind strike that killed four out of the five of them... but then one of my Razorwings took out the Long Fangs who'd been sitting on an objective in a crater.  The Nightfiend promptly sat on it for the rest of the game, generating tactical objectives for me and making all of his frankly ridiculous cover saves.

He wasn't worth throwing enough firepower at to kill and it certainly wasn't worth sending a squad of Grey Hunters over to duff him up in close combat!  It was the most successful my Mandrakes had ever been, and I might take them again now, even to sit on an objective in cover on my side of the table!
