is there any reason to take these? They are worse than the rending claws with no AP and only re-roll one's. unless i'm missing something they seem nearly useless

The only real reason to take scything on genestealers is if you plan on blending light infantry or any mass group of little or no armor saves (like ork boys). In those instances, the armor pen from the rending claws means little, and it is more about how many hits you get to land, hence the re-roll of 1s becomes helpful.

They are also good against things with an invulnerable save only like some daemons have a 5++ and nothing else so then rending doesn't matter.

these are both very good points that i didn't think of probably because i never face off against daemons or very light armored units. its just MEQs as far as the eye can see for me :( . Thanks for the responses though :D

Seriously, the only one running around here without 3+ saves or only invulnerable saves these days is me.
