Emperor's penguin, you're my hero!!!

That thing looks incredibly nasty. what exactly is its battlefield role? Also, do we know if its plaggy or all metal?

I'd say it's a defensive/utility unit

It can take command of models like the brain bug, it has REALLY hard hitting CC, but it's slow movement makes it hard to be used as part of the main attack. It is also a tank, it's almost as tough to kill as a tanker bug!

The best part though is that it gives you a cheaper way to buy psychic powers. You can take the overseer bug and keep him in LoS and not have to worry about him as much as you would with a brain bug.

It's sort of expensive points wise as is, but it still has its uses.

Whoa..You could even use it as a Hive Tyrant, and no one would say much, exept maybe "wow...where did you get that cool model from?".

I dunno. Nice as it is, the paintjob makes it look depressingly lacking in fine detail.

And the wings are farrrr too diddy...and thick. Odd combo I know, but Bug wings are membranous....not bloody solid.

I think a lot of people will, thats an awesome sculpt!.

I almost bought SST the other day but ended up with warmachine instead, still intend to get it though and i certainly want one of those!
