Most people tend to go for the Callidus. Personally (and as I don't play much) I go for the Vindacre just because the fluff of the ultimate sniper is to good to pass up. Its cheesy but my god its good. Plus the mini is nice. But yes *ahem* back on topic, ah the Callidus is the way to go.
I think it sort of depends on what you need in the army. I like using all four of them (not at the same time, of course!) just to use 'em. The Vindicare is the most fun to use, I think, even if it's not the most effective overall. My experience has been that the Eversor is the best buy for the points, as it's quite inexpensive, it's very quick, and it'll pay for itself in close combat without breaking a sweat.
Why can't you use the vindicare anymore? Anyway the vindicare can kill indepedant characters and sergeants and on a good roll...tanks. In addition he has some awesome fluff and the model of him standing on the skull is sweet.
Sadly the vindicare isn't as cool as the fluff states. It only has less than 50% chance of wounding a model, even less if the model is in cover. Most of its cool stuff is one use only. It is a very tactical unit and don't expect it to make its point back in the game. That being said you can do some nasty things with it, picking off pw fist sergeants, or my favourite picking off the middle guy in a devastator squad to make the fall out of unit coherency.
>> I say it depends on what army your playing. If you playing as WH against Eldar wi Farseers and/or Warlocks, then use the Cellexus as its hard as fuck against psyker heavy armies. Anything else with either WH/DH, then take the one you think will fair better against enemy. Vindicare for sniping big gribblies, Callidus against combat troops, specially meqs. Eversor for just about owt. Other peeps will say differernt, but these are just my thoughts.:victory: Buy them all dude, then you dont have to decide on only one.
I field a vindicare in my witch hunters 90% of the time. If i have a very specific objective in a game i take the callidus as she is essentially a one use only assassin. You put her somewhere she kills what she's told to then she gets shot loads and dies. But she usually gets the job done.
If i'm just going to wing it i'll take the Vindicare. Sniping out powerfist/plamsa pistol champions is always a good option. If you get lucky maybe even a HQ choice
The vindicare is probably my favorite assassin. It may not get its points back but when your enemy buys 75 points worth of space marine tactical squad to field 1 lascannon by taking out the lascannon you take the teeth out of that squad and it's like they wasted 75 points. The most dangerous part of an ork mob to a Demonhunter is the nob with the power klaw. Take him out and your termies/whatever will have a much better time in cc.
The points killed by the vindicare really don't reflect its usefulness.
also the strength 5 AP 2 pistol that the vindicare carries does a decent amount for anybody who attempts to get in close to him. mine has personally forced an assaulting chaos space marine to retreat from only himself.
