Servo Skulls, custom model

Recommended Posts

Greetings acolytes,

 

I like servo skulls. They're neato. The core book only has ideas for 4 or so of them. Are there more in the other books? I didn't find any...

 

Anyway, give me your ideas for servo-skulls! I figure they're basically floating pieces of gear (one is a glowglobe, another a medi-kit, another a laud hailer, the last a combi-tool). What other servo-skulls would be fun?

There are not any more servo-skulls in other books, but I've been working on it for my campaign.  

 

My group has a combat servo-skull; Wagner had been shooting a las-pistol at them in the middle of a fight for the other side, which the party was heavily armored enough to practically ignore.  We're talking it is flying around a guy's head taking point-blank shots as he's sniping and he just waves it off to take another shot elsewhere.  Eventually it started harassing the squishier Tech-Priest...  Who grabbed it and shoved it in a sack for later reprogramming.  He got it working right, put a bolt pistol in place of the las-pistol and slapped a carapace armor helmet on it (think WWI German style, complete with spike).  'Wagner' still has the habit of flying up to Point-Blank range to take his shots.

I miss gun servo-skulls too. Don't really know how I would implement them though. Maybe take a shot as a free action or a reaction with a laspistol or such at a set ballistic skill. Or just treat it as an alternative to the ballistic dendrite.

 

Ohh and I don't remember, Is there an auto-quill servo-skull in the base book? Because if not that should be one. I've seen them as models and in artwork a few times.

Might be a good alternative to replacing your hand with an auto-quill.

 

A servo-skull equipped with long range vox equipment might be useful too, spare someone else the trouble of lugging that stuff around.

Lingua pattern: a close combat one with a chainsword sticking out between its jaws (or underslung under it's upper jaw) maybe with a tox dispenser drooling poison on the blades.

 

Captis pattern: One with a Stasis grenade: Fly close to the target and then...gotcha!

 

Excruciator pattern: Repurposed mediskull with torturer tools and recording device.

Basically the interrogator droid from star wars.

 

Accendo pattern: One with it's lower jaw replaced with rows of underslung stim injectors loaded with a variety of combat drugs. I just liked the idea of a skul "biting" you and pumping you full of combat drugs. Or otherwise enhancing you (like a transformers minicon)

 

Daemonis pattern:  Forbbiden****rdo***Mall**s****rad*cal***mino***de*mon*** ark**mech****<redacted by the Inquisition>

OK last game session I ran - the acolytes where secreted into a Mechanicus satellite/base/cannon-thingy - anyways - within that place they had to escape using a deposited modded shuttle - of that shuttle were four blisters by which highly advanced servo skulls "popped" out - suffice to say after alot of action and eventual take off the PCs managed to land on a nearby Moon...

 

Once settled the last of the four skulls deployed and required some sort of "bonding" by which a needle came out and it wanted one of the PCs DNA - once done it was revealed that the Holy Ordos somewhere along the lines in the past had infiltrated Mars - thusly coming into possession of this very Servo Skull which is a Dual Purposed Skull.

 

- Tech Use

- Ballistic Skill (armed with a Hand Bolter) - err Better BS Skill Rating than Default

 

Otherwise STAT wise it is exactly like any basic servo skull found peppered in FFG publishing

 

"P.S." make your 40k yours!

 

Left - Only War STATs
Right - Rogue Trader STATs

How about a surveillance model? Integrated pict-recorder and vox receiver/transmitter. Would be useful to get the lay of the land before bursting in bolter first...

Kettler Pattern - Incorporates a liquid heating chamber, infusion censer, refrigerated lactations compartment and detachable beverage receptacle. Optional extras include; milk foamer, lemon slicer and bean grinder. It's nice always having a decent cuppa on hand.
