Default Rumored Imperial Assassin's statline.

So this statline has been floating about, and said to be baseline stats for Imperial Assassins.

I would assume they would be arriving with the Q1 Grey Knight codex.

WS:8 BS:8 S:4 T:4 W:2 I:7 A:4 Ld:10 SV:4+/4+i

Move thru cover
Fleet
Fearless

Thats quite the upgrade from what we have now, and is taking into account the new high BS rules from the 5th rulebook. I would assume that once dressed up with the various Assassin Clade special rules and equipment these folks would be quite nasty.

Obviously this needs to be taken with the usual large dose of salt.

That stat line does seem insanely high...

Then again, if the rumors are true about not being able to run them with GK's then I guess it makes sense.

i think i'll take a shovelful of salt with that instead of the usual pinch


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Sounds about right. It is an assassin after all, they DO specialise in killing people.

I still am confused why there is no infiltrate or stealth rules for him. They would make perfect sense.
