2 stealth teams would be incredible against light infantry armies such as orks and tyranids

You will see lots of tournament armies bristling with stealth suits, especially in terrain light-middling environments

Yes, the metal ones should still be available, as mentioned numerous times in the rumours board.

You can't have too many Stealths. They're arguably the best unit in the current codex.

What'dya mean!? The Krootox is clearly more points efficient.

Lol.

Back to reality. Having two Stealth teams would be a fantastic addition to the army... but you actually may wish to wait for the new Codex - in the near future, it will become possible to have a 'classic' stealth team for their superb purposes, and then a 'gorrila' team with Fusion Blasters to hunt tanks... heck, it may even be possible to give the fusion-stealths Target Locks, freeing up the rest of the team to help the other team engage light targets.

I've been using two full squads of stealths ever since I started playing mech. The groups where I play usually make "tournament" grade lists that have more or less cheese in them. Still, I can quite honestly say that the stealths have by their actions, directly or indirectly, decided the outcome of the battle more times than any other unit in the army. Considering this, their capabilities and their stats, I wouldn't leave home without two full squads no matter what.

However, IG drop troops with two plasmaguns and a plasma pistol can kind of ruin their day :P
