    Stealth Army

    From the latest White Dwarf in the UK, a number of comments seem to mean that we could create what is essentially a stealth army.

    While the compulsory fire warrior squads ruin this aspect, the majority of the army could have stealth generators

    1 x Shadowsun ( she has experimental stealth suit )
    18 x XV25s
    36 Gun Drones accompanying them ( XV25s get a battlesuit support system, and one of the support systems in the codex is drone controller )
    27 Sniper Drones ( get stealth generators too )
    3 Spotters

    in a 1500 point army the rest of the points could be filled with fire warriors to make the army legal, but most of the army itself will be extremely hard to hit

    Though this is all speculation from the notes in the white dwarf, so not real rules as such but it would be nice to field such an army. imagine the backstory

    You could ship the fire warriors around in a transport until you were in combat, and they wou;dn't be totally shot to bits, and could act like re-inforcements, but not officially. I like the idea, but you'd porably need more punch somewhere for when combat came.
    I also think the idea of a stealth generator should be available to more armies, seeing as several would definitely have teh technology fluff-wise - Eldar, Dark Eldar (in character, too) and Necrons, if not more.
    Hell bent on twisting the rules of Inquisitor to my dark desires.

    Mod Edit -
    Ignore this person. What a waste of perfectly good oxygen. There are kids in Antartica or China or Korea or some other country that would kill for the oxygen you are wasting with each passing minute.

    I think taking a few squads of fire warriors could be a good thing -- put them in devilfish and get in the way of things

    I like the stealth idea, though =o

    Sniper teams come in groups of 3 drones and 1 Spotter based on what I've seen so far.

    You can only have a maximum of three sniper teams in one army because you are limited to using a sniper drone team in 1 FOC slot but that can have 3 detachments. What were they smoking? If I'm wrong, I'm sorry (if they weren't smoking anything at all.......).
