how good are assasins and can they go into a puritan grey knight army
Assassins are great, and can be used in your non-radical daemonhunters. You must first use an inquisitor, and then use an elite slot to take one (or more if you include cultists) assassin(s). You no longer have a pure Grey Knights force, but you still have non radical daemonhunters and are still allowed to take GreyKnights. The only limiting factor is the Inquisitor.
On their greatness you can do a search and find some recent threads that cover which assassins are perfect for which occasions.
take an elite inquisitor with 3 acolytes, and a callidus assassin.
It depends if you mean 'puritan daemonhunters army' or 'puritan grey knights.'
Since they're not grey knights, including them in any army means you aren't playing a grey knights army. :tongue:
But yeah, that's really spurious. You can include assassins in a Daemonhunters army provided you have an inquisitor. Doesn't matter if it's puritan or radical.
Assassin are specialized "tools" that can really compliment a Puritan Army well. I favor the Callidus and Vindicare in large games, and the Eversor in small games.
You really have to think about how to use them, but I really like them in a walking Grey Knight army.

You can include assassins in any Daemonhunters army provided you have an inquisitor and an open elites slot. As for the best assassins, I find the eversor is the greatest(and he cheapest).

Absolutely, the assasins are great, but the culexus is very hard to use. Yuo can usse them in your normal army for sure.
The gold grey knight man. These are hardy men who like cheese.
Ever thought of how cheese was found?:
`` I say sah, the milk in this barrel smells foul!``
``Oooohhh, give it a go!``
''Quack, damn you!''

The assassins are all very useful, but also pretty expensive and very specialized.
Use the Callidus assasin against stand-and-shoot armies to disrupt their deployment, making their first one or two turns less destructive, and letting you put at least one model right on top of them without risk.
Use the Eversor against armies that are vulnerable to power weapons, like Space Marines, Chaos and Necrons. His insane number of attacks and high Initiative let him tear up MEQ squads, and the "poisoned weapon" status of his Neuro-gauntlet makes him all right for killing enemy Monstrous Creatures too, like Wraithlords and Carnifexes.
Use the Vindicare NOT to snipe your opponent's HQ- you probably won't be able to Pin him, neither will he die for about 5-6 turns, and that's the end of the game. Instead, shoot expensive single-wound models out of your opponent's squads, like Exarchs, hidden power fists, heavy weapons, etc.
Use the Culexus against psyker-heavy armies...consider him against Tyranids, since all Synapse Creatures are Psykers now...losts of shots against Warriors!

"Negative! The soda bottle is the Carnifex!"
"Dang proxy models!"
