The Ad Mech Serberys cavalry are back with an updated set of rules for 9th edition. Take a look.

This image from a miniature assembly guide has been doing the rounds. It appears to be from a new repacked set of Adeptus Mechanicus Serberys Raiders & Sulphuehounds.  It is all over Reddit, and various forums.

Updated Serberys Raiders & Sulpherhounds

Some items from the updated statlines& weapons:

Serberys Raiders

  • Toughness changes from 3 to 4
  • Wounds change from 3 to 2
  • Attacks change from 1 to 2
  • Galvanic Carbine changes from AP- to AP-1

Serberys Sulphurhounds

  • Toughness changes from 3 to 4
  • Wounds change from 3 to 2
  • Attacks change from 1 to 2
  • Phosphor Blast Carbine changes from R24″ toR18″ and from Assault 4 to Assault 2d3
  • Phosphor Blast Pistol changes from Pistol 1 to Pistol D3
  • Sulphur Breath changes from R8″ toR12″ and from AP-1 to AP-2
  • Power Maul changes from S+2 to S+3 and from AP-1 to AP-2

Notes

This is an odd one, and feels like a rebalance/redesign for the unit. The combination of +1T with -1W seems like a slight nerf, but then GW lays on the extra lethality in both attacks and increased weapon stats all over the place. The Serberys cavalry will now really feel different than the larger heavier chickenwalkers.

Note the increased AP across both variants, and the overall increased damage either will do with that +1 attack. I’ll be really curious how these are costed in the upcoming codex.

All hail the Omnissiah!
