Default Vindicare Assassin - Down fall of platforms?

Me n my friend played a 1500 pt game, his Witch Hunters vs My Altaioc Craftworld. First couple rounds, my starcannons slaughtered his battle sisters while my War Walkers and Wraithlords ripped apart any vehicles. He complained I was power gaming so we switched armies. He always used a Vindicare assassin but I took it out fairly easy on the second turn. I know the strengths and weaknesses of my army so I used his assassin to my advantage and picked off a couple Platform workers which saved a considerable amount of sisters.

Was it a fluke or was I reading the rules wrong?

It what do you mean by a fluke? You don't attack a platform, you attack the two workers. When one is dead the platform can still work but when both are dead it doesn't work. If that helped, your welcome.

Don't vindicare assassins (and other assassins) count as independent characters? If they do then it would be impossible for you to shoot it unless it was the closest man to your army.

I don't see why it's such a big deal to be honest. *The BS of the platform workers is only 3 so on average you'd get about only 3 dead sisters every two turns. *You'd need to take out both workers to render it inactive which would take at least two turns - on average more because the assassin only wounds on 4+. Therefore (assuming you're playing a 6 turn game) you'd only have saved about 6 sisters. *Wouldn't it have been more logical to have something else mow down the guardian squad (which lets face it shouldn't be too difficult) and use the assassin on much tougher units such as the wraithlord?

What was the Eldar army list you used?

The thing about this, the vindicare assassin is extremely fast and ive seen (and felt) the assassin get into assault 1st turn and totally murder my 20 man warrior squad (alot of ones on my side) i finally got him with an agoniser after 3 turns of assault...then he blew up and killed off the rest of the guys in the squad. so if you get to shoot at him hes probably the closest thing to you anyway. hes mean but arnt all eldar (including platforms, sorry dont know normal eldar) BS 4?

Not the guardians (unless they're black guardians which they can't be as he had an Alaitoc army)

CC on the first turn?? What size no mans land were you using?

I think you mean the eversor assassin, Vindicare is the sniper.
