Default SM Sicarius, thoughts?

My buddy has the figurine and i'm figuring on borrowing it for fun, that made me wonder what some of you might know of running the 200 pt. captain of the ultramarines second.

Any takers?

Belive you me, good against nids, ko-ing fexes (albeit not very often) can swing the way the games going

Yeah he's not bad, I like him. Whilst I never used to use special characters, I use Sicarius all the time as I field the 2nd Company and I find him to be good fun, without being overpowering.

He makes your whole army fucking hard to break, he gives you a 30% chance to Seize the Initiative, and he makes a single Tactical Squad awesome.

Seriously, he opens up some great tactics for you, infiltrating Tactical Squads isn't to be scoffed at, since their transport gets it too, you can get a first-turn Meltagun right up in their face!

Scouts is less useful than Infiltrate I'd say, but still has uses

Tank Hunters is obvious, that combined with a Plasma Gun is pretty powerful, basically another Missile Launcher.

And you probably wouldn't bother with Counter-Attack.

Sorry mate, I'm not entirely sure that's correct as awesome as it would be. Sicarius merely grants the Infiltrate special rule to a tactical squad in your army. The infiltrate rule (page 75) states "If a unit with this ability is deployed inside a transport vehicle, it cannot infiltrate."


The rhino, whilst bought for the tactical squad is a separate unit entry (that doesn't use a force organisation slot) and does not gain the infiltrate ability, it makes as much sense as a Rhino with counter attack.

In every other respect Winterous is right and whilst I don't think Sicarius the most powerful character by any mean, he's certainly a lot of fun and characterful!

Aah I got it confused with Scouts, and I was too lazy to check
Scouts is granted to a Dedicated Transport the unit is deployed in, but not Infiltrate.
