Has any one ever used the Culexus assain with 10 or so Lanst chancer psychers? This give you an infiltrating assain with BS5 a St5 AP1 Assault10 weapon...

You sure? I don't have the codex to hand, but isn't it just enemy psykers on the table that gives you extra shots?

Yep any psycher, but you must keep them with in 12 and more than 6 inches away. If they are within 6 inches they might fallback!

Nope. "For every Psyker within 12 inches". No ifs, ands, or buts, it works with any and all Psykers.

The problems with that idea are:

*Yeah, it's powerful, but only 12" firing range. Easy to just avoid.
*You've gotta cluster all your psykers within 12" of the Culexus, putting them at risk for the Culexus' leadership sapping powers.
*That's an awful lot of effort to invest in just one gun.
* Assassins only get a 4+ save. It's invulnerable, but hit them with a squad worth of fire and he'll fold really fast.

So basically, it's a very potent weapon that isn't too useful, requires tons of preparation from you, puts lots of your troops at a disadvantage, and gets killed extremely easily. I'll stick to bolters, thanks...<_<

Yep, and some people have fun by trying to play almost perfectly. Things that aren't worth their points annoy too much to bring onto the board.

Does it work if the Psykers are in combat?

If so, you could send them into combat 8" on his side and he could shoot.
Before the combat, you could keep the Psykers infront as a Meat Shield.

Admittedly, I don't know much about these unit's stats or points, so this might be a terrible idea, but I thought I'd throw that out.

You can use an inquisitor as an elites choice.. minimum cost is about 21 points (with almost nothing, admittedly.)
While this is true, there's a problem. You are only allowed limited FOC slots when using allies - 0-1 for all of them except Troops (0-2) and Heavy (none). Since an Assassin is an Elite slot (and therefore fills the 0-1 limit), you must take an Inquisitor Lord in the HQ slot.

Remember also that these slots are from your normal FOC. A normal FOC allows for up to two HQ units, one of which is mandatory. If you use this strategy, then the Lord fills the second HQ slot, meaning you cannot have any more. The Assassin fills one of the three normal Elite slots in the same manner.
