    Default Smoke Thralls

    Someone brought up an interesting idea for Cryx that kinda just surprised we don't have yet. What if Scrap thralls could just willingly explode into smoke clouds?

    A 4 inch smoke AOE? That sounds nice. It would give me reason to include one or two of the solos in me lists.

    I like the idea. Would it be useful or interesting if it were a Tactics ability on a character Necrotech? He'd have all of the normal Necrotech abilities, could start with a scrap token, and would grant that ability to scrap thralls.

    Yeah I thought it was a neat way to use them and very Cryxian and it would give us at last an ability to create clouds without having to use the GD gunslingers in a way that upsets me.

    They'd also be more efficient than Mechanithralls or Carrion Thralls at 2 points for 3 models, rather than 1 point each.

    it's also no hingent on hitting good defense or removing the recursion element you bought them for like Carrion thralls and Mcthralls

    This is the best idea I've seen on here in a long time

    Agreed, thematic, useful and not out of character for a Necrotech to use to escape pursuit ect. The very idea that they are a either bombs or smoke screens instantly increases the stock of Scrap thralls and Necrotechs SUBSTANTIALLY and we wouldn't be actually trying to explain to people why Mcthralls & Birds don't make good blood mist targets

    I always kinda wished that scrap thralls could pick up some variation on jack hunter when they directly hit a jack with the self destruct. At the very least boosted damage. Hugging the target and exploding is probably as close as cryx gets to shaped charges.

    Smoke variation would be great though.

    Would be fitting...

    ...since the competative Cryx lists went up in smoke.
