Default Officio Assassinorum Poll

Who's your favorite assassin and why?

I like the Eversor the best with the Vindicare a close second.

The Eversor because he gives you the potential to rip the guts out of your opponents troops choices before they even get a chance to do anything about it and I like the Vindicare because he can pick out enemy Sergeants and heavy weapon troops from their units.

Incidentally, how do Eversors work with the Imperial Weapon teams? If one dies, another takes over. So effectively, they never lose their heavy weapon operative, right?

Special Weapons and Sergeants can go, but I still don't see how that effect works.

I especially like the Vindicares rule where it can target units in close combat as well. So go and hold that daemon in combat, and then snipe away.

Still, for 95 points, I'm addicted to the Eversor. 100 points, and you get a unit the equivalent of an old Marine captain, for 60 points, (minus the armour). Absolutely insane, considering the damage they can do.

I have been using a Vindicare for 4 years and I wasn't aware that he could pick models out that were locked in CC. I'm not saying you're wrong, just that I never knew that and now that I do, you can bet I'll be taking advantage.

Far and away, my favorite of the four is the vindicare. For once, it's not the fluff that dictates my choice, but how it works on the table. It has the most "assassin-y" feel to it, allowing you to target a specific model with each shot. Being able to pick off an Ork Nob or a Space Marine Sergeant with each pull of the trigger is worth its weight in gold.

ditto. i dont have a vindicare assassin model, or any for that matter, because i play chaos but i have played against all four and by far the vindicare has caused me the most problems. i cant say how many times he has picked off my aspiring champions and even twice one has killed my chaos lord. also it does have the right "feel" to it as he is an assassin

Here is the beginning of my fluff for my Iron Warriors Eighth Grand Company https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=51842

"A fortress is a living thing: the commander its brain, the walls its bones, the sensors its eyes and ears, the troops its blood, their weapons its fists. This tells us two things: If one organ fails, the whole dies. And if the whole dies, no single organ can survive alone."

Callidus.

For the knife in the back, accept no substitutes.

A Vindicare WORKS better overalll.... but Callidus fits my style more.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Vindicare nothing stops the big scary thing more than a peice of lead in the brain
