Is it possible to build an army out of scouts only (excluding officers and such)?
Well, you could... scouts as troops and scout bikers as fast attack. But that's about it. I'm not sure if it's competetive though.
You won't have any "scout" heavy support nor any real elite. And yeah.. not to mention HQ's.
But then again.. who says a scout can't drive a tank?
looks to me like scouts are going to be elites in the next codex. (see BA and DA codicies)

It's possible, but like others have said, competitiveness would be a point to take into account with a lack of anything :p
But, as far as Officers go, ive fielded a SM Captain in scout armour and fluff-wise claimed he was in Artificer armour (so he still gets his 3+ save) but wether your opponents are WYSIWYG freaks, then you might have a small issue.
And if Scouts go Elite like they did in DA/BA then that will really suck but theres always Apocalypse

I want to make a raven guard 10th company
Im using a combined Scout/Terminator army..
I have 2 large Scout squads with teleport homers and infiltrate + a smaller squad with sniper rifles..
Then I have 2 Scout bike squadrons (again with teleport homers) and Meltebombs for tank hunting..
My Scouts objectives are to tie up units and set up teleport homers to ensure my Termies arrive safe
I think thats the best use of Scouts.. cheap, forward squads who can fight almost just as well as regular marines except for the armour save..

Imperial Guard: Viking Raiders
Tyranids Hive Fleet: Sabretooth
hmmm... i don't think u can do a scout company without the presence of at least a captain, to which is far from a scout's rank.
