I dont recall. I dont have my codex at the moment but you might be right. One could still take it even so, and another a stim injector for more survival ability. Still, the whole unit could take shield generators and or shield drones but the point cost would be horrendous

7 XV8 suits with irridium armor and sheild generators with twin linked flamers still charge for 2 attacks (14 att) at Str5 WS3 and would have a 2+/4+invul save plus Farsights in there too. Thats not too shabby but REALLY expensive. Its totally putting all your eggs in one basket and making your army do something its not geared to do.
Is Iridium Armour not a special issue item, only available once in the army?
It is.

My 4th edition Ninja'o was one of my favorite units, especially against squads with no power weapons and big guns. I've tied up many a devastator squad with him. Now, of course, GW doesn't want us having viable assault tactics, so they nerfed the Hit and Run rule to the point where a Ninja'o is about 33% as effective as before.

Crisis suits are more effective shooting than assaulting, so if you think you'll be locked in assault for more than one turn, I'd advise against it. It'd be better to shoot. On the other hand, if you're out in the open, and a squad of three marines is within assault range, why not? If you're locked in assault through you're opponents turn, he can't shoot at you. You have to evaluate the situation before doing anything.

My Crisis suits are veterans in CC, they've taken down a lot in their time, including a Space Marine Chaplain, a Librarian, a 5-man squad of Possessed and a few APC's.

Leave the CC up to the kroot. My brother plays orks and I have killed off several advancing ork squads by outflanking.

Use your kroot wise. Outflank. You WILL destroy/put enough wounds on a unit to start to see your oppenent travel the middle of the field in the next game.

What sort of rolling was that to kill an Autarch? Almost whatever upgrade you give an Autarch can kill a Crisis Suit: Meltagun, Reaper Launcher, Power Weapon, etc.

I agree with using Kroot by Outflanking, mine have ripped apart many a squad of Guardsmen.

He fired a Meltagun, saved an Invuln, and he struck with the lance, I failed 2 Invulns there but after several rounds of CC, was able to wound and catch the son of a bitch somehow.

like the other day my crisis commander got charged by 10 assault marines and 2 turns later he ha killed 9 and caused the last one to flee off the table and only took 2 wounds
jammy dice rolls and nothing more. 10 assault marines generate 30 attacks on the charge. now where was the sergeant with the power fist? that guy alone will stomp your commander. the rest of the assault marines are ablative wounds.
