Can't wait to use a MD 6 to hit with a MM and burn the strat to use it again for damage.
Or to stand with the Imagifier who has the strat to give two buffs; PE's and Morties don't get <order> auras, but these walkers will.
I think the interaction with SoB army rules will help separate these out from PE's. I have the feeling PE's will do more damage overall, but the Paragons will be more versatile and actually synergize with the army. The real question: will they have the infantry keyword. If they do, Hospitallers let's just got a huge boost
Just to add on here:
Penitent Engine: No relevant traits
Mortifiers: As PEngine + Adepta Sororitas trait
Repentia: As Mortifiers + <ORDER>
Paragon: I imagine will be as Repentia + Sacred Rites
Compared to the other walkers, these should have Order + Sacred Rites over them. - Edited for clarity
Compared to the Repentia it'll have resiliency + Sacred Rites - at a premium in price, but that's a story for later in time when there's more info
Edit - it'll also have access to a lot of heavy weaponry it seems (possibly 2 Heavy Bolters + MM + specialized melee weapon). So while the Repentia charge headlong into the fray and create a mess, these seem to be more of a glide behind that initial charge, softening up strategic targets before charging into whatever hole was created by the penitent.
