All it would take is someone like St. Caul saying they dreamed about "a righteous victory over evil, lead by a rat bearing a spiritual light", and Cawdor would be making them that day.

Maybe. But if we're talking Cawdor and their general looks, I can't imagine them spending a lot of their spare time rat grooming.


Rats tend to groom them selves A LOT.

i think its the lack of stitchs, and pox you get with skaven type rats that make them look off. but i honestly think they are fine.

They don't sneak, they run towards their 'goal'. And to 'guide' them from distance it's quite necessary for Fred and George to see their furry companions (and avoid their path if the trick doesn't work). And even with a candle they're too small for an easy target.

Well, you could use the candles to habituate the rats to day... er... hivelight to avoid disappearing in the next hole. Or they remove the candle in the training after the rat has done it's job.

The rats with candles are like tracer rounds for the other 5 rats without.

So during the Great Patriotic War the Russian trained dogs with bombs to run under tanks and blow the tank (and themselves) up.

The only problem was they used Russian tanks to train the dogs. Which smell different from German tanks.

So the first time they released them...

Just one of the many amusing stories in the history of attempting to weaponize animals.

I still think the Bat Bomb would have worked.

Those rats are cool, but I'm not sure I could actually use them in a game. It makes me sad to think the little fellows blowing themselves up.

I was intrigued when I found out that the Ambot sprues leave you with spare legs. Dunno what I can do with them, but I have lots of AdMech stuff, so who knows.

So I bought a box.

Combine them with the galvanic servohaulers somehow? Could have walking servitor rigs that way.

More like "how do you know the rat isn't running back to you?"

I feel like they missed out on the opportunity to give the Ambot some 40k Admech rules... possibly GSC, since the Ambots are for mining. So I wrote them some: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/772414.page

No re-roll aura or ability to cause Mortal Wounds? 0/10. Would not spend a command point on them!

Extra legs are for scenic basing of a collapsed tunnel. Just chop up all your left over sprue and cover a base where the top part of the model would be and then attach the legs.

If all else fails, add a bomb rat .

Just house rule that any gang can use any kind of pets. No reason why they couldn't really, and Necromunda is basically made for house ruling everything.

On the one hand the Cawdor rats with the candles on their heads. Which when removing the flame came be easily converted into tophats.
On the other hand the Anvil rat with the flight goggles can have its explosive sticks converted into a small jetpack..
