I AM using them, so don't try convincing me not to XD
That aside, how best to use them, considering their maimed movement? (no deepstrike, infiltrate)

ISTs are not useless, but they are for specialized rolls. They are not Grey Knights:rolleyes: , good at all things, you have to use them for what they can do. What they can do is shoot special weapons in short or medium range. Give them Transport to make this happen.Originally Posted by TwoHats
The two ways I use these are:
IST Squad with two Plasma Guns. Full Squads, with a Chimera. Either start this squad in cover, park the Chimera close "hull down" if possible, or move them to cover, or to a good spot. Use the squad and the Chimera for anti-troop/light vehicle pummelling. Sometimes I'll add a single Inquisitor with Psycannon to this squad, (while my Assassin does its job!):tongue:
IST Squad with two Melta Guns. Full or part squads in Rhino with EA and Smoke. Send these guys out for tank hunting. I might add a Vet Sgt and Teleport Homer to bring is some Grey Knights in where you want them.
As long as you use these guys "on the fringe" they can be usefull.
