The culexus assassin seems to be generally regarded as the worst or least used asn by most players. Its pretty much only effective combat wise against psychics. It's good points are the etherium (hard to shoot/assult), the anti-psychic abilites, and the s5 ap1 weapon. One thing often overlooked or underestimated though is the souless rule (all units in 12in have ld7). This could potentially screw over your inqs, Stormtroopers, inducted units, or allies. However, does anyone use this rule to a great advantage? To be able to make all your enemies ld7 and still benefit from the fearless GK's seems like it could rock, especially against high ld/ hq troops. Also, if you have psychers (gm, inq) nearby it, it gets extra shots with its animus spec. I'd probably not employ these tactics myself usually because i mostly face Black Templars, orcs, and guard, but does anyone out there capitalize on this assassin? How successful is this strategy?
I'm not really going to reply onto the tactics, but I'm going to follow what the Title of your thread says.(BURN BABY BURN) I think Culexus sucks. Its nearly completely Anti-Psker. And if your playing Black Templars dont waste your money and buy it. I say, a Vindicare assasin is good. Its rounds are hellishly good. And the Vindi is good for getting rid of that damn command squad that always finishes you off.
Well, I have thought of taking one. Remember, every GK Justicar and Brother-Captain counts as a psyker. You can hang this guy out behind a couple squads to pump up his animus attack a little, and the GK are fearless so is doesn't really matter what their Ld is most of the time.
do friendly psykers count? i thought only enemy one's count. Hmmm, it would be pretty good against a seer council
