    Death Cult Shooter

    Please someone tell me why DeathCult Assasins have a BS of 5? Is it purely just to tease us...
    I mean that they are just as accurate as a Vindacare Assasin someone who was trained to shoot a gun shooting, when they have been trained in the way of twin c/c weapons...

    Is there something i'm missing?

    I think its just to represent the general skill of the assassin. AFAIK they would never be in a situation where BS is relevant. (Then again I may be wrong.. )

    This similar kindof discussion came up in the Necron forum about Flayed Ones.

    They have a ballistic skill for Balance. They have extensive training, so if the oppurtunity ever came up, they can fire a gun with ease.

    That's all.

    Is there anything to stop you giving one a gun of some sort?
    It wouldn't be too hard to convert the model so WYSIWIG wouldn't be a problem.

    Um, the entry in the codex does not give them the option of taking any upgrades or wargear, if i recall correctly. Otherwise people would have been giving them plasma pistols a long time ago...

    I think it is because they use weapons such as throwing knives and needlers, but the Inquisition doesn't *hire them to shoot (they got enough of that already) they *hire them to mutilate the enimy up close and personal.

    I would assume that all the models that can't use shooting weapons, have a BS because some people like to run campagins or such that allow their models to get other weapons and such, some people like doing that stuff

    Yep. Or just to fill in all the blanks.
    Its not that they don't know how to shoot, its that they have only cc weapons.

    I recall times w/ my eversor that I regretted shooting. I killed the guy and lost my extra 12" move from charging.

    But not having a gun you won't be tempted to put them in LOS sooner than you have to.
