Which Assassin do you think is the best value for points?
Although Vindicare is cooler by far.

Vindicare is the best:ninja: he stealthy and he can choose who dies and has AP2 and can cause 2 wounds..whats not to like ok your Chaos Lt. dies or i just shot your Tau HQ twice and he died..or oh i dont like that rocket i think its dead. tell me whats not to love about targeting
I think the best is the Callidus, and the best for the points is the Eversor.
Callidus is so Nasty, and used with Improved Comms from an IG tank, she comes in early to mess with enemy lines.
The Eversor is very flexible. Good at anti-Tank and anti hi-Toughness creatures.

as much as I love the idea of a hidden sniper as an assasin, I think the Eversore's got it as far as bang for the buck.
Callidus is real sweet also.
If the Vindi could pop off two shots, I'd never leave home without him. I still love taking down HQ's/squad leaders.
over all, I think it's really a matter of which one fits your needs/playstyle.
except culexus. not found too many reasons to use him, outside special scenarios.
Callidus for me, while her solo combat ability may not be as hazardous as the eversors I value the fact she pops up anywhere on the board. For this reason she always see's action...quite a flexible assasin IMO.
well i voted for the evorser naturally cus he said best value for points, best assasin on the other hand is the callidus hanjds down awsome cc potential nasty gun special deepstrike and the oh so butiful whisper in your ear rule there is no greater killer

"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how i soar" ;- serenity
Eversor assasin is IMO the best bang for your buck while I like the vindicare a lot too. Though in the end I'll probally get both sometime as I like the rules for them.
The calidus doesn't impress me much as from the times I have fought them they are more of a nusiance then anything (though that may be because my army is Godzilla so not too much it can do too me really). Not to mention for how many points she is she can die fairly easily so really a one shot person most of the time.
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

I'd have to say Callidus, as I like the Word in Your Ear ability. In my opinion, it's the best ability of any unit in the game, not to mention the fact that she basically deep strikes anywhere she wants without any chance of scatter, and is allowed to move, shoot and assault on the turn she arrives. Brutal, I say!
Now, I understand that she does poorly against large numbers of enemy models, but I've put her to excellent use when it comes time to assassinate an Imperial Guard Officer to break a Vox network, or to knock a Chaplain down a few notches.

Anywho i cant vote on this, because i have had terrible luck with all of them, except once when i was playing a black legion army in a tournament.... on turn one i fired a hellfire round from my vindicare at a daemonvessel forcing a bloodthirster out who promptly died at the end of the turn from instability after killing one seraphim.... (pictures the vindicare scoping out every member of the chaos marine squad, then seeing one guy in there mutating and looking like hes gonna bulge from his body and s***, and being like, wtf, then popping him and the bloodthirster coming out and being like, WHOA, WTF!!!)
