Hi there,

My group has just started a DH campaign and I'm playing an Arbitrator. I'm interested in picking up a cyber mastiff for my character and I see the rules in the IH, but I don't see a specific cost. Can someone help me out?

Sorry, just had to.

Seriously though, they really skimped on that whole section. Overall, I love DH, but I was disappointed with the cherubim/cyber critters/servitor section. You could do a whole supplement on that stuff.

I think it's more something you're "awarded" rather than buy for good service etc.

and MaximGatling that's brilliant, I could just imagine a hive with posters on the wall..

Disagree. Cyber-mastiffs seems like something that nobley-types would want guarding their estates, and also other people in need of a good guard animal. I always assumed they were similar in cost and availability to trained guard/attack guards today.

Yummy free meat, that is a deal.

Well yea I could see nobles buying them but I mean more from the fact the OP mentioned he's a Arbitrator so I asume they would be given it for good service or specially trained to handle them. arf!

7500 thrones is a full suit of Power Armour, not some servitor beast that's supposed to be available in every precinct house...

 

 

I've just realised there IS a cost Rosenet.

By using table 5-5 on page 145 of the Inquisitors Handbook you can work out the cost of a Cyber Mastiff.

I reckon you're talking about 5000 thrones and that's me throwing a few things in for free that the example Cyber Mastiff has. 

I mean your at least 3000 for the cyberising then another 1000 to take it up to machine 4 plus another 250 for Fearless. Thats 4250 before you even take into account the thing has Brutal Charge, IR Vision and Filter Plugs and the cost of getting the dog in the first place.
