I was just wondering if i should get scouts (I play BA) and if so what kind of scouts, BA scouts, or space marine scouts. and if so what weapons should i give them shotguns, pistols, or snipers or w/e else u can give them. thanx in advance....................
it seems nonsensical to give BA scouts anything other than Bolt Pistol and CC weapons
Scouts are awesome. Seriously.
As a BA player, you may only take one squad of scouts armed with sniper rifles and such. So, it looks like you'd be stuck with only the normal BP+CCW scouts, which are insanely awesome, especially when playing against armies with lots of power weapons or against choppas - the 4+ save doesn't matter in those cases.
I usually field one squad filled to the brim with sniper rifles to take out any high-toughness creatures, and the rest with BB+CCW. They really are quite effective, I recommend them.
I think scouts are great aswell. However don't forget that BA or normal scouts cannot take melta bombs. Like my opponent did, untill i said otherwise ( much to his dismay because he was about to assult my demolsher thinkiing he would blow it up). But yes i would recomend them but take the BA scouts because that blood rage thingy could be usefull in an assult.
About the sniper rifle strength X, what does that mean?

the only thing you need to know is that they always hit on 2+, always wound on 4+ and causing pinning checks.
