I really wanted to paint these guys. The figures are awful, but they’re the essence of Cryx. Zombies with steam powered mechanical fists. Fists!!
So yeah, I’ve played with them plus two brute thralls for a while in a 15 point list with pAsphyxious. Scything Touch on Mechanithralls just makes em hit a lot of the light infantry and hurt a lot of the medium/heavy ones. They can even scrap a system or two on a heavy jack if you get enough charges with combo smite. And then of course forcing the thing to trample away, IF it has the cortex still on.
All in all fun to play.
