I'd go with No. seeing as it runs around on it's own... Even the gang that owns it has an issue keeping it under control.

They have a leadership of 8+. IIRC, You have to let the other player know if you are using the cranial governors, or the damn thing goes Berserk, and attacks everybody in range.

Side note- The enemy gang can capture it.

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

No rules say Ambot cannot be pinned, the only units with said rule are the (probably Ambot) Automata from Archeo-Hunter and the Cyborg from Murder Cyborg.

Yeah, I'd assume you can pin the things, since nothing says to the contrary.

In general, all models can be pinned unless they have a special rule that says otherwise. There is no special rule for ambot saying it cannot be pinned.

The Chaos Spawn also has a rule saying it cannot be pinned. The Chaos Witch affected by the Levitation spell also cannot be pinned.

Would you say an Ogryn can be pinned?

Keep in mind Gang War 3 (and all other books prior to N18) is outdated and loads of rules are replaced and/or no longer applies. It shouldn't be used for reference.

There's no reason why the ambot can't (or shouldn't be able to) be pinned. Especially given that you can potentially set it up right by the enemy gang. Close enough to try for a first-activation charge if you're feeling lucky.

Even the Ambull can be pinned if you use the fighter card as presented on Warhammer Community (although we gave it Spring Up to make it more of a threat).

Seems weird that it can be pinned in berserk mode.

It's also a balancing factor. The Ambot is a generic brute approximately the same level as an Ogryn. If it could ignore being Pinned, it would have a massive benefit vs the Ogryn. It already has Infiltrate so is better than the Ogryn in some aspects. Also slightly more expensive.

Being Pinned is the biggest weakness of these Brutes, and they have few other weaknesses.

I've been considering using the Ambots as a conversion for my Warboss in Mega Armor.

Has anyone tried something similar, or could speak to the space where the normal head would go, as I would need to put an Ork Boss head there?

I've seen someone on FB turn one into a mech piloted by a Genestealer hybrid... so I can't see why you wouldn't be able to do the same with an Ork

Theres cog details behind the head piece for the arms and neck but the head has a flat connection in the centre of this and it should be easy enough to put an Orks head in place of the Ambots.

Well, it doubles the number of models released in this prior quarter. The problem is that they went with unique personalities as opposed to a more versatile option.

FW/Specialist games early on said they have a (singular) machine producing dedicated to all their plastic production.This would imply a relatively limited production volume, where the number of new releases only diminishes as the number of supported kits and game lines increases. Last time they did a boxed game release that was said to have been 3 months of production capacity. Given that one or two kits per game per quarter is generally what we can expect.

Surprised by that and it seems like a missed opportunity those 2 figures could easily be done in resin with the plastic sprue saved for a 5 man kit I guess they just didn't have anything else ready to go this quarter.

Pretty much anything else they could have done would outsell a plastic Kal Jericho. How about a multi part squat.

Plastic (overpriced) named character(with a laspistol) instead of plastic generic hive scum and bounty hunter? or plastic weapon kits.... hmmmm who approve this?

Weird decision for such a niche character that you'd only need to buy once, and would not use every game or that often. I woulda done the escher cats on a sprue instead, or some other beast, pretty much anything else.

I got the sense that Jerico would be plastic. Nice to see that hunch confirmed. Hopefully they’re price won’t be flying rodent gak crazy.

Maybe we'll also get plastic Donna and Klovis the Redeemer next, and that's the whole 2019.

On the bright side, at least there doesn't appear be second Season Pass another round of Gang War books.
