    Not sure... Rangers/Pathfinders

    Rangers/Pathfinders, are they worth while and if they are how best are they used? Pretty strait forward.

    I would rather get pathfinders than rangers because they get ap1 on a roll to hit on 5+ and improve cover even more. There use is to take out high armored units and to pin low leadership squads. Good for terminators, and high toughness creatures. Put pathfinders in a 4+ cover and they will be unkillable specially if fortuned. Make sure you Doom the unit you are shooting at because they hit on 2+ but wound 4+.

    Extremely worthwhile if you know your facing MEQ's. I've found them invaluable against Nurgle Marines. I try to always have a squad of them.

    I took 5 pathfinders every game back before I used storm guardians as troops.

    They always did fairly well, killing a few guys and being a nuisance exactly as they;re meant to be. Generally they aren't worth it against many kinds of enemies but when I went up against armies like Nurgle, Death Guard, Necrons (BRILLIANT against the toasters) etc.

    When I just needed to kill another tough guy to force morale/bring it below scoring or deny We'll Be Back or take out the enemy's last heavy weapon guy or whatnot they were always there to pick it off. I tend to verse many Dark Angel players and the termies simply couldn't kill off my nasty little pathfinders. 5 of the buggers killed 40-80 points every turn, bringing every enemy unit below scoring.

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
