Default Re: Kill-teams...

Though I am still building my army, I'm planning on using kill-teams often. Currently, I've lined up a drone sniper team (or at the least, 1 spotter and 1 sniper), a stealth suit with a marker drone, and a pathfinder or two...

Said kill-team would be ideal in assassination/ambush scenarios.

isn't there is a limit to the amount of heavy weapons you can have?

Cheers!

i don't have my rulebook at the moment, but isn't that a mutable rule?, and if so, then you can break it as many times as possible.

Anywho, my favorite kill-teams are stealth teams and pathfinder/FW teams.

I do believe there is a rule against heavy weapon units, but I don't have my books either.

How possible would it be to field a spotter and a single sniper drone? What would the point total be there? 40?

I personally run 6 Fire Warriors with Carbines and 6 Kroot Hounds. Stylish, Functional, and it's 12 models :P

Actually, one of my favorites is quite simple: 10 Stingwings. Meets the point amount exactly, a large force with strong guns. Plus, after you complete your objective, The jump infantry is nice for getting the hell outta Dodge.

Humm, I never looked at the kill team part of the book till now and I think I may be able to talk my friend into playing it a few times but I have a question. It says that for the tau boss it is a shas'ui and if I am given enough points could I potently take a Stealth suit or (oh lord help me if he brakes this much rules) a crisis suit or am I just stuck with a Fire Warrior Shas'ui?
Also the use of the vespids seems to be a good idea for a kill team.
