Horus Heresy 2e Review: Sekhmet Terminator Cabal

Warpstone Flux Rating: ⭐️⭐️
2/5 stars. Over costed. Under-performing.

Scarab Occult Terminators to those outside the Thousand Sons legion, and standing apart from those even within the legion. These are a band of psykers who hold their minds in the highest enumerations and in battle appear to be so precise as to be automata ... perhaps foreshadowing the fate of some of their members. 

They're psykers and 2 wound terminators with the valuable WS=5, and they can buy a single psychic discipline for an added cost. The achea pattern force weapons are very welcome here as well.

The biggest negative here is the points cost. In plain language, they're just not worth it. By upgrading to a psychic discipline, they're over 300 points for 5 models. Honestly, a generic legion terminator squad would be better value at this level. Doubly so given that they would have access to at least the minor powers of the Arcana. By all means take Biomancy for the S+1 and T+1, but realize that you're better off with some basic terminators in all probability. 

Difference to First Edition.

5 Sekhmet, Inceptor with Biomancy, Grenade Harness (305 points).
Look. At. The. Points. Cost. Though.

5 Sekhmet, 5 combi-melta, Inceptor with 1 Discipline, (350 points).
Look. Again. At. The. Points. Cost.
