Hey guys,

Scourges are awesome, i guess we can all agree on that. But one thing that bothers me is the thought of their speed.

In the Codex we learn that they get there bones hollowed, get some extra muscles and adrenaline injectors, but that just doesent seem enough to me. I cant imagine that a Scourge can get very fast, just by its own power. Sure, it can glide on the airstreams, or dive from a high point, but without some kind of acceleration (Anti-Grav Unit?) i imagine they would only be able to slowly flap into the air.

What your view on this?

I don't think I can comment intelligently on the bio science of transforming Eldar into semi-birds Very Happy

Scourge are really at their element in Commoragh. Thats where they were mainly designed to operate.
SO I think they areodynamics are adapted more for manueverability then speed.

Makes me think they should be jetpack infantry.. and I'm ok with that.

Don't question 40k logic. If you do then question Space Marines and all their cheesy no.

In a world with daemons, and magic... er psychic powers, you think to only question the speed of genetically altered fictional aliens?

This is a race where their science seems to humans to be magic. That is a licence for being able to write about anything happening.
