Ok, I think assasins are great. One thing. Im having trouble using each assasin effectively and im using them against all the wrong armies. Some help please.
First of all the most important...
Do you have the Assasins codex?
The codex that came out as an extra in WD july 1999... That's just the first hint I give...
Other than that.....
You say what armies to use them on...
I'd say anyone...
Prefer to use the vindicare assasin, he's good against all.
Not not use the callidus assasins against C'tan
Everson are nice... but don't deliberately charge them into the carnifexes.
Whilst I've always thought Assassins were kinda cool, I do not use them. Unless there is some cool reason, like it works with a storyline or bonus for suceeding in a special mission in a campaign, I just plain don't field them. I guess I have too much pride in my soldiers, and I'd rather they earn the glory than some outsider...
Although the few times I've used them I've discovered they make great distractions, often your enemy will be so worried about what your assassin is going to do he/she neglects the rest of your army. They also tend to draw an awful lot of enemy fire...

I have been toying with the idea of using the Callidus Assassin vs Tau, as she can morph in, use Neural Shredder and then charge something. Her Jump Back rule is also great.
But the Vindicare seems good, although he can only get 1 kill per turn. And as I see it, he cant kill off anything with more than one W in one turn (except for Turbo-Penetrator, of course) . But seems good for being a distraction and for sniping off lascannon crew, flamermodels and the likes =) .
That's kinda the meaning of the vindicare assasin.
I ersonally like him best...
I have had bad experience with him in combat... having him in the opponents team kinda almost killed off my deamon prince.
But I have to say the Everson assasin seems like a good choice too, a real maniac in close combat, and if he's so unlucky to die he even leaves a little explosion for them to remember him by.
I do not have the assasins codex, but I am using Daemonhunters so they are in the daemonhunters codex.
IÂ´d rather get the Callidus over any other because I love its strategic advantages:
- the create confusion ability, which could give you an edge from the beginning of the game
- The ability to appear anywhere on the battlefield
So you can displace that nasty enemy unit which was going to tear you down to pieces and appear next to that other shooty unit who was going to stop your advance.
It will give you one or two turns for your HtH units to close and destroy!
dark eldar -caddulas
nercons -vindicare or caddlus
eldar ultwe - culexus
Thanks for the advise guys, see ya round.
I think the best assasin is the calllidus because thanks to her i have only ever lost one battle . If the vindicar had a triple penintrator he would be good
