Will you use the new bonesinger
« on: October 26, 2017, 07:26:28 PM »
So this model has been out of the game I know since 4th ed. The bonesinger is back and looks to be our tech marine. We have a d3 damage melee weapon, smite, and healing d3 wounds to a vehicle or wraith construct instead of smite during the psychic phase. 4 power or 70 points. Do you like this latest edition? Is it worth it? Will you use it?

VERY happy to see this model back in play. Games Workshop has done a great job bringing back many of these models. Iím glad I can use it as a Ďsinger and not as a count as farseer. Iím curious about the healing, which will be interesting in a fun list- I canít see the Bonesinger in a stripped down comp list. Will be a nice character to work with my six wraithlords.
Though my men may sleep, and my ships rest at anchor, my foes know full well that big guns never tire...

Look on my works ye mighty, and despair...

I will be. Probably anytime i take 3 fire prisms where i hide 1 and fire with the other 2.

The singer will hide behind the vehicle giving it back hp.

I wonder how the healing ability will work. If it functions as a psychic power. I can think that because it 1 it happens in the psychic phase, and 2 it is used instead of smite. Will you only be seeing one per army in matched play?

Is it a psychic power.

1 cast per round. Smite or heal a construct.

The data sheet said that the heal was instead of smite. But I don't think the ability has a name

The thing is, instead of rolling to manifest the Smite power, you can just heal without rolling dice. It's guaranteed.
