I'm curious as to what is the point of a needle pistol?
From the looks of things it couldn't penetrate any vehicles armour (not even a sentinel).. is this just a weapon that has been lost over the generations?
It's one of the hold-overs from 2nd ed when nearly every sort of weapon had a pistol, rifle and heavy version.
The needle pistol is just quirky, and only really taken to the field on any regularity by the eversor assassin. The daemon- and witch hunter armies evoke a lot of elements from 2nd ed 40k.
I'm moving this to the daemonhunters forum, since it's not really a rules question.

You're right, the Needle Pistol can not pen or even glance against any vehicles. But what it can do is wound ANY non-vehicle model. The Needle Pistol always wounds on a 4+, so whether the target has a toughness of 4 or 10, the Needle Pistol will wound it on a 4+. It's not an overly huge weapon as the target still gets a save, but it does have the potential to take down Monstrous creatures.

Well, it's essentially a sniper rifle without the to-hit bonus, no? So it'd be good for Monstrous Creatures -- or really any high-toughness unit. Also, it's way cheap, at least for Daemonhunters.

haha and here i thought if i put it in the DH forum it would be moved to the rules section.
Okay so it is an old gun, but could be useful on an =][= or such that is going monster hunting
Personally, my favourite choice for monster hunting is almost always either a Grandmaster with appropriate gear or an Eversor Assassin - the GM's Force Weapon only needs to make one wound, and the Eversor is easily capable of eating a Carnifex or Wraithlord for lunch in one charge.
