Default Ninja configs with Shas'vre

Ok I have heard of using Ninja COnfigs (anything with VRT's) on commanders but I was wondering about effectiveness with a Monat 'vre. I currently have my two commander spots filled (Running a O'Shova force and then an Aurora config commander) ANd really want to put a ninja style config in for a monat tank hunter. Any advice would be appreciated.

OK, what is an Aurora configuration for a crisis suit?

Commander with CIB and either a Burst Cannon or Plasma Rifle

Don't run a ninja 'vre. They aren't good in CC. really hurts when you get hit on 3+.

Actually Ninja configs are good at any heavy weapons squads (Devastators, IG heavy weapons teams), since they lack any special CC ability/weapon (when did you see a Devastator squad sargeant equipped with a powerfist?).

My Long Fang Pack Leader packs a melta rifle. I figured that when then enemy is that close... why not.

The only ninja should be a Shas'O... I4, WS4, High number of wounds... everybody else will be useless in combat.

Agreed. Ninja'O is the only way to go.

BTW - what are your experiences with people saying the Hit and Run move is or is not legal against a WS0 vehicle?

In my area, people argue it's an exploit and while technically they can't find a RAW reason against it, they call it cheese so I don't use it. I'd like to, but I don't in order to be a "good sport" about games and our league (lots of others do the same, so it's no major loss).

You can hit and run with a vehicle because you aren't in a hand to hand combat, as the vehicle has no WS and doesn't fight back.
