To me a power scythe on loyalists looks either BAD or ASS but never both.
Could work with the Scythes of the Emperor, but it's really a minor chapter.
Yes actually. It never struck me as a practical weapon. It's heavy and poorly balanced, as it's not made for quick swings or rapid changes in the direction of your swing. It was made for a very specific task, and it was good at it, but there's a reason that when it was used for military purposes it was heavily modified and had much more in common with a halberd than the original farming tool.
That being said, it's already well established as a 40k weapon, and it's very stylistic and thematic. I had naturally assumed it would be included in EC.
Aren't they called Manreapers? I believe they are exclusive to the Death Guard.
They're called power scythes, Manreaper is a unique version of them wielded by Typhus.
They aren't officially exclusive to Death Guard, but in reality few others use them.
I want the goddamn Accursed Crozius. To hell with the Power Scythes!
This thread seemed to have came back to life. Looks like nurgle has been busy.
@Asheru please help, do not let the old thread touch me!
