Seeing as this thread has made a triumphant return- what are thoughts on the mighty Stone-Crusher? I always liked the concept for it, but how does it perform?
I'm not a fan of the stonecrushers most recent rules.
For one thing, they took away the Monstrous Brood rule, so you can no longer fit up to 3 in a detachment slot.
But my main problem with it is they stuffed up its wargear options.
The model is sold with either a pair of wrecker claws, or with a single wrecker claw + a flail. However in its current rules it can only choose between the pair of wrecker claws, or a pair of flails. This invalidates the claw + flail loadout, and there's no way to represent a pair of flails without converting the model.
Adding to this, a second flail does absolutely nothing more than a single flail. While the wrecker claws rules have been written to give them an additional bonus (re-rolling hit rolls) for having two of them, but there's no way to have a single claw right now, which makes the rule a bit weird.
It's like whoever wrote the weapon rules had one idea of how it should work, but the person who wrote the wargear options had another.
It seems easily fixed. Just requires GW
to notice the error and write an errata (I did email them about it back when the book came out).
