How do you kit them out? Is it different if it is the warlord?

Fairly new to the game but I've given mine the volkite blaster and macrostubber. I think the volkite is better than the eradication ray with the more reliable number of shots, especially at the range I try to keep my dominus however you can't shoot the macrostubber as well as another weapon so the Phospher serpenta may be the better choice as then you can fire both.
My logic (which now seems flawed) was that if he got caught in close combat the macrostubber would help. The 4 games I've played in 8th edition he's never fired his macrostubber!

I think the conventional wisdom is to kit him shooty with the phosphor serpenta and volkite, or the macrostubber and eradication ray for the choppy version.

That being said, mine has the eradication ray and the serpenta. I haven't used him yet, but my buddy's main army is Nurgle and Khorne heavy Chaos Marines, so any armor mitigation is preferred. I'm pondering popping off the ray and putting the volkite on him instead.

I was wondering this also so am glad this was posted.

To be honest though there is little chance I will take one and just will paint one up because he is cool looking and I have two from the start collecting boxes.

I've been wondering this myself. I believe for my first Tech Priest Dominus I'll take the volkite (is that the mortal wound one?) and the macrostuber. I like the idea of more shots, even though the stubber may be a little shorter ranger.

 

If I the autocaduceus wasn't such a good item I would probably build him with the phosphor to take the phosphoenix special weapon.

Just take two Techpriests!  :D

Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.
