Default Your Opinions?

I've been debating about getting a Stealth Team or a Stealth Armor for a while now and I just wanted to know everyone's opinions about which is the most helpful in battle. Thanks

Aren't those two things the same...? I was under the impression stealth teams wear stealth armour.

According to the GW webpage they're different things aside from the fact they cost different amounts:

Stealth Armor

Stealth Team

In regards rules, they're exactly the same. The larger suits are the newer version however, and are plastic sets, so they're also much more fun to model

Also, for what it's worth, be a little suspicious of the rules on the GW site - they tend to be broadly accurate, but really the codex is the way to make your selections

I'm fairly sure they cost the same point wise and have the same stats. It's more a choice of personal preference really.

Yep, those are the same thing. However, if you are going to have a lot (I mean 3 teams of stealth teams), if you use the XV15s for one of them, you'll find psychologically it messes with opponents, cause the smaller suits draw less attention when there are still bigger suits around. Just a fun fact...

The bigger ones are actually cheaper, as they are plastic and come in a box of 3, with accompanying Marker Drone and Objective Marker.
