Hi there,

I hope that's not a too noobish question: I just got Genestealers Starter Box and wanted to start building the Kill Team yesterday evening, but I stumbled over the Scything Talons. From reading the rules, I can see no reason, why I should not give every Genestealer a pair of them. Having them allows me to choose them for Meele Weapon, but as the Mini still keeps a pair of Rending Claws, it still can attack with those, when ever needed / wanted …

… so … is there any reason to not take them (except, if you don't like to paint them perhaps)?

Thanks in advance!

They're free and they give you options. There's no reason not to, really, modelling issues aside.

Likewise, you should give your first genestealer the acid maw, and your second flesh-hooks, as both are also free upgrades with no downsides.

Thanks a lot!

 

Let's see, if I can remodel the one I have already built without Talons, hehe.
