Default Stealth suits worth it?

Well, i bought 2 packs of xv 15 stealth suits, 2 for 10 bucks, not bad, and i got 2 shas ui's. they didnt have any more regular suits, so now i have two leaders, but hey, i got 6, just what i wanted, now i want to know, how handy will they be? are they only good for small battles, or good for large ones as well? Just want to know, cuz i got them now..

yeh they can be handy all the time..harrassing, sniping rear armour, infiltrating, taking objectives....great multi-purpose unit, they tend to work best vs. non power armoured opponents but even then they really are a great point for point unit. Useful in patrol mission size too i find....a nice squad of 6 (or less in smaller games) should be able to fit in and do an important role in most places...

Realisticly you want quite a few Crisis because of their diversity, especially with their weaponry, 2 squads of 6 Stealth could work, but i would only do that in 2000+ games...

I'd take two squads of Crisis with ya, one with fireknife and the other either 'tank hunters' or 'anti-infantry' squads.

by 2 HQ's you mean Shas'O/El with bodyguard?

if you do mean that, I wouldn't take that bodyguard, as it's a bit of a waste of points IMO and I like having my Shas'O/El being an IC. I'd then split the Crisis squads in 2 groups of 2.

Why would you take an anti- infantry crisis team over a larger stealth team of the same amount of point? Not only that but that same stealth team also comes with the stealth suit and night fight special rules. I myself never take anti- infantry crisis over stealthies as i see my XV8s value in taking out my opponents best units.
