Telion carries the Stalker Pattern Boltgun, which has a nice 36" range, and is rending and pinning.
Snipers carry sniper rifles, which have a nice 36" range, and are pinning. I do not have a copy of the rulebook in front of me, so if this information is wrong or incomplete, feel free to correct me.
Now, I have recognized my own tendency to go overboard when thinking of unit loadouts and unit combinations (I just hope everyone has forgotten the Chapter Master + Honour Guard with nothing but Relic Blades). So I ask you, to review this idea.
3 Scouts with Sniper Rifle
1 Scout with Heavy Bolter
That's 5 shots to pin. Is that too much 'pin' coming from one unit?
In my eyes that isn't enough snipers! Scouts now only have a guardsman's BS so you'll need a greater volume of fire to make up for it.
Definitely grab more snipers. To pin you'll need to get some kills first, and 3 snipers won't be enough. Besides, most units have a high Ld anyway so pinning isn't too reliable. The rending and always wounding on a 4+ is more important.

Okay, so I'm convinced that I need more snipers. Thanks.
Any thoughts on adding Telion to this mix? The range of the weapons is a perfect match, and they're all 'heavy.' But could his talents be put to better use in a different unit?
remember telions gun is basically a sniper rifle with a strength value instead of always wounding on 4+ so its a little bit worse unless your fighting toughness 3 armies (hmm tau, guard, tyranids and elder not a huge minority) its also means its slightly better then regular snipers at taking out tanks which no one else seems to want to do with them (10 raiders, a land speeder, and one overly glanced dreadnought and counting to my 5 snipers). But thats not the point behind telion what you use him for is picking out charectors. "But all the have better armour" i hear you cry though the folds of time. Yes but im thinking heavy weps, chaos icons, vox officers and now those lovly little guard infantry platoon (if you havent seen the new guard codex yet its really fun not much different from before but now yarrick beats gazgul thaka up more often then not). Any way thats what his for his basicly a vindacor asassin.
