Hi chaps, a couple of questions regarding Beast Packs:

1) I suspect this has been asked before, but what are they like at the moment? I know they're not as good as they were in 5th, but I didn't use them in 5th so I haven't got much of a comparison. Razz

2) Do you think they could work as an escort for a (jetbike) Corsair Prince? He'll have a Voidblade (S5 AP3, Rending) and will be a Lv1 Psyker with Divination. He can also have a Shimmershield to give the entire unit a 5++. Could this make for a decent melee unit?

Razorwings have been beaten severely with the nerf stick and are not worth considering. Khymerae aren't bad and already have a 5++ so you could save in the Shimmershield. Clawed Fiends with a 5++ might be worth it but I'd rather have Grots!

Fair enough. The reason I'm not considering Grots (or Incubi, for that matter) is with Corsairs I finally have access to an HQ who can take Jet Pack or a Jetbike, and I intend to savour that. Wink

Would Reaver Jetbikes be a better escort, do you think?

Reavers are a decent cc unit with the HoW attacks and Hit & Run, and the Prince would add to that but I think I'd still prefer a Craftworld Autarch, due to the Banshee Mask. Prince not a bad option though, especially as a psyker.

Ah, okay. In that case I'll just use one of the units from the Corsair book as an escort.

Thanks for your help.

I've not yet got my hands on the Corsair book so it's hard to say whether beasts or reavers might be a better option than anything else in there.

Clawed fiends would be a pretty good escort in my opinion. 4 for 120 isn't a huge investment and with the shimmer shield it's a fairly tough, fast unit that packs a pretty good punch, but is still small enough to be hide-able. They also don't care too much about overwatch from anything besides Scythe-guard (or a full tau army).
