Default Sniper questions and markerlights

When you shoot at a command squad, are you allowed to choose who dies when you score a hit? My friend has a vindicator assassin who is allowed to choose who dies, so I'm thinking: "If his sniper can... can mine?"

Also, I was talking to another tau player who said that once a group of soldiers are markerlighted you are allowed to choose who dies. Can anyone verify this? lol, I have a bet....

Nope. Unfortunately for everyone else, the Vindicare Assassin is pretty much unmatched at his craft. No other snipers or sniper-like units have that ability. Your friend is regretably out to lunch. A Markerlight has many effects, but none of them directly relate to casualty removal.

Actually, the Imperium has one other. The crazy sniper from the Gaunts Ghosts can do the same thing. 'Mad' something.

He was a Chapter Approved addition. There might be a few more if we leave the regular codexes.

Ahh, so he's not legal anymore. I figured he was in the codex. Not my army though, it apparently shows too.
