    hey everyone,
    wat do u pplz think of space marine scouts in battle, i find them very effective in 500pt games in CC and in pinning ppl using snipers. In larger games, since i am a DA player i use them with naaman, who is a special veteran seargent for scouts. plz contribute so we can collect a tactica/ uses of scouts in battle.

    i find the loss of scouts the most disappointing thing about BT

    Great models, nice rules (they are surprisingly the most effective basic unit against C'tan/avatars) they and cheap

    i love my scouts, i remember one battle, infilrated close to the enemy lines (they were IG)... he thought scouts were crap so he left them alone for a bit... i ended up charging into his infantry and ripping up his heavy weapons teams... he got so cut hehehe

    but yer, the sniper rifles are nice too... and ***** is the point of a shotgun? its so sh1t the bolt pistol and CCW is much much better

    Shotguns are like Lasguns, every powergaming munchkin thinks they suck... Well one Shotgun isn't that impressive... 10 shotguns is a different story... 20 shots at 12 inches...Holy Buckshot Batman!

    I've watched the mightiest warriors in the 40th millenium die horribly in a hail of shotgun fire. Abaddon, Ork Warlords, and even a Blood Thirster...

    Scouts are one of my favorite units, they're even more flexible than a Tac squad...

    fuzzywolf5000> What?!?

    The chapter I made myself (Jungle Scars/Sons of Khan) had it's primary troops as scouts (fluffily speaking, I already had more Tactical Marines than Scouts by the time I got around to inventing my own fluff).

    yeah i cant see how you killed a bloodthirster by laws of averages you should only inflict 1 wound.

    20 shots = 14 hits

    14 hits = 3 wounds

    3 wounds = 2 saved

    theres just no way you could kill a blood thirster

    Yeah, but these things called dice we use? They don&#39;t always roll the average. That&#39;s why we need the law of averages.

    That&#39;s chance.
