I will be buying 2 or 3 squads of these bad boys and i was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers on how to equip them and what tactics to use with them? Ive heard some people say camo cloaks are a waste where as ive heard some people say there good? Is it best to keep them in squads of 5?
From my experience, mostly playing against Orks or imperial guard, They've been quite hit or miss. Espcially since the downgrade of BS so there harder to hit with now which is quite dramatically different you will notice game to game. I would recommend placing telion in a squad maybe filled with more models with snipers, The 4+ wound is mostly good so if your against tyranids you can take down fex's or eldar kill the wraithlords easy, but apart from that there uses are annoyingly limited.
As i've been playing against an ork player the abiltity for the snipers to pin was useless as his boys squads are fearless until they get below a certain number of models.
If you require more insight or advice or any of my experience with them just reply.
I have mostly seen people use them as a missile launcher platform because they are cheap. Also with the missile launcher they can sit back on an objective and be in relative safety.

They are absolutely fantastic for taking down MC's and other high T units. Other than that, I guess their pinning makes them fairly good against most infantry, but its truly a sight to see when they rip that wraithlord apart.

I suck at staying on task.
Five Scouts, camo cloaks, and a missile launcher. 100 points for a cheap scoring unit that has decent firepower, the ability to infiltrate, and they are hard as nails in cover. I see no reason not to take them. Use them to hold or deny the enemy objectives and to use as a buffer to your regular fire support.
The only thing you have to worry about when using Scouts is AP4 or better flamers. Getting hit by one of those can really make your day
I've seen and had good use out of them as a squad of 5 with sniper rifles and heavy bolter.

It might just be me, but I have never seen sniper rifles perform well except against C'tan and the Eldar Avatar. I recommend opting for one of the other weapon choices and saving yourself a few points. The missile launcher would pair well with BP/CCWs for making a small firebase and bolters plus a heavy bolter would grind out the hordes. Frankly, I think the best sniper choice is that Telion guy...the ability to assign wounds is much more powerful than ignoring high toughness.

Yeah Lost Nemesis is right there free. Was just thinking of there abilties of holding a objective with camo cloaks and sniper rifles for MC. Gonna get 2 squads and see how they do thanks for the info everyone.
For 100pts even if they do bad it wont be that bad i mean 100pts is sssooo cheap.
