Well, It's $20 for 5 scouts with bolt pistols and CCWs, and it's $15 for 5 SM with Bolters. If you want snipers, or Bolters, or shotguns, you have to buy blisters. Scouts are a hassle!

its easier to put the shoulder pads and bolters on catachans and they look like they went through some strength increasing process

Yeh i supose scouts are a bit pricy but the modles do look cool :D
DAmn Skippy!




Personally I'm not a fan of using guardsmen for scout conversions. And would you really use backpacks? normal scouts don't get em.

(good god how long has it been... random)

You can have as many snipers as you like.

Catachans do break the 2/3 man rule

But you still have the standard 3 elite choices limit, so if you wanted to, with catachan you can have 9 snipers.

Well for deathworld it would be helpful since they can ambush, so 9 ambushes, plus traps make a deadly combination.

Also they're practically impossible to kill since they disappear, and have toxic shells, which allows them to re-roll missed wounds.

I use the new cadian snipers for my scouts ... all you have to do is greenstuf the rifle and cut off some wires :)

I also have a Kasrkin sergeant as my scout sergeant all Idid was replace the laspistol with a boltpistol and made his kneepads rounder with greenstuff (more space marine'ish) I also have 2 standard space marine scout snipers and I'm still looking 5 for more suitable snipers cause I need to fill out the squad (don't like using the same model twice and I hate converting metal stuff) ... and yeah I do like snipers :)
