Horus Heresy 2e Review: Legion Armistos

Warpstone Flux Rating: ⭐️⭐️
2.5/5 stars (rounded down). The rules mean that this HQ is playable, but you're unlikely to see it on the tabletop, even in small points games. 

An officer of the legion with a relatively calm and even temperament that looks after the arsenals of the legion. They work to improve weapons and field test things that come under their purview and are sought after by the Master of Arsenal for their organizational skills. In short, this is a qualified support officer.

The get an augury scanner and cosnis signum for free along with the chance to purchase a master crafted heavy weapon of some kind (except the heavy flamer which comes twin linked for some reason). That's it. Nothing special really other than the ability to get a heavy weapon. In some ways an inferior version of the Imperial Fists Castellan

With candour, this is a cheap way to get an extra heavy weapon on the gaming board. That's it. Yes, the cognis signum and augury scanner are welcome additions, but there's not much here to bang on about. You are getting what you pay for more or less. 

Armistos with master crafted las cannon (90 points).
Stack with a las cannon back line squad. Most builds with other heavy weapons will follow this build and I therefore won't list all of them. 

Armistos with master crafted multi melta and melta bombs (95 points).
Bit more of a mid-range option here with some flexibility.

Armistos with combi-melta, power fist, melta bombs (120 points).
The idea here is to take this Armistos with a support squad of melta marines. Use the cognis signum immediately to help the squad take out a vehicular threat, or maybe after the combi part of his weapon has been used up.
