Well, I don't know if you have or could get your hands on a 4th Edition Rulebook, but they have some really cool pictures of Eldar Kill Team conversions done by the 'Eavy Metal team in there. Basically imagine guardians/rangers with greenstuffed hoods, cloaks and bandoliers.

Cheers!

I would go with either a hardcore sniper team, or a Predator-style Striking Scorpions unit.

Point is, you have to decide for yourself. My favourite ever Kill team would probably be a 4th Ed. Storm trooper squad, with a sniper somewhere. You really need to figure out what you would think the most awesome, hardcore unit you can imagine, then try how it fits into the rules. If you ask other people for their opinions, you'll end up with a unit you've spent a lot of time on building and painting, and that eventually doesn't satisfy you, because it isn't your own. So take all your favourite games, movies and books, and think what you think would really be awesome.

Hope this little plea's helped

I think harlequins would work pretty good as a group of assassin/saboteur types. The obvious one would be rangers or scorpion shadowstrike/stalkers, but harlies have that 'veil' illusion power and hallucinogen grenades (ggeee captain, I don't know what happened or how they got in, I was too busy worrying about all the bugs crawling on the bleeding walls when my gun started talking to me" - which works well in a sneak-in-kill-sneak-out type of story line for a game. Not only do you assassinate the enemy leader, you leave the command staff in psychological rehab and inquisitorial questioning about the incident. hee hee. the laughing god laughs.

I dont reckon veil of tears would work well here because the brutes have little sight distance anyway :P

Not to mention that Psykers, such as the Shadowseer, are not allowed unless you break an immutable rule.

The shadowseer is technically game-wise not a psyker because it doesn't take psykic tests it's power is just 'on', like a synapse creature. It's just an ability, not a psychic power involving psyker rules, tess, perils, and so on. Besides I wasn't really thinking about game terms so much as story-type ideas on what could be a kill team. Anal-retentive autism is such a killjoy in gaming.
