I haven't read it yet, but I still think he should. More options is never a bad thing and I like seeing things from the wider lore of the setting brought in to the game.

Maybe the dynasty should get a set of traits, but Oltyx himself is just the Indomidus Overlord w/scthye and tachyon arrow. He doesn't really have anything special, modeling-wise, to distinguish him from other Overlords. The submind-scarab thing could be really interesting though.

I don't know what Oltyx would bring to the tabletop that we don't already have. Maybe if he had different rules to reflect the different sub minds, and you chose which one or two to activate each turn.

I like that last idea. Or maybe each submind can store a command protocol and he chooses when to play it.

I think Oltyx and the Ithakas Dymasty would be excellent material for a White Dwarf supplement. Nothing super special, but nothing any different from what minor Astartes chapters got

Oltyx’ subminds would be a great mechanic for a special character. Such an iconic part of the book that they should be represented
