why do we have to splash out on a vindicator assasin for a sniper when normal space marines can have entire squads of them with the same save as our assasins
from a fluff point of view, because the space marines are the best mankind has and as such have to be trained in in all forms of combat.And vindicares are better than SM snipers anyway WS + BS 5, I 5,Ld10,their sniper rifles are AP 2. They can pick out individual models in squads,have special rounds and a stelth suit as well as a 4+ invunarable sv.I 'm not having a rant (thought it looks like that) just pointing out that vindicares are better than SM snipers and would probably win in a shoot out
wow. now that was interesting
This is a part where i'm ment to 'big up' my clubs forum-
Marvel at its brilliance
Marvel at its sheer scale
Marvel at the 6 core posters
well you can always just induct a scout squad w/ sniper rifles...
you can't really compare scouts to vindi tho.
scouts are for pinning/killing monsters, vindi is for killing hidden powerfists/heavyweapons.
scout snipers are too expensive for what they do (ratlings are better, to bad you can't take em).
and a vindi still only wounds 1/2 the time (unless you use a speical bullet).
Fluffwise, GK would never send their trainees into the field - the foes they fight are too fearsome to combat at less-than-full strength.
Can't you get ratlings if you induct guard? Or is that only Witch Hunters? Ratlings rock, though they look a bit silly.
Really? I must be misremembering my WH codex (I used to be an Inquisitor briefly before I transformed into a warboss!)
I thought if you had two platoons of guard you could get a squad of ratlings? Must be rough riders I'm thinking of.
Ratlings? Heresy! The Inquisition can turn a blind eye when they are used outside their presence but right under their nose!?!
