Default Stealthsuit

Hi, what do you think about crisis suits vs stealth suits?
Why do I need stealth suits when we are able to field crisis suits?
What SSs have that CSs do not?
Cheers

in a word, nothing. They are merely cheaper points wise, not by a lot mind.

i do however enjoy using stealth suits.

You can have up to 6 of them and they have to be spotted to shot at. I don't use them a lot but when I do I have them outflank. 18 burst cannons on a target >. Put a couple of marker drones in there and you can get BS 5 and really hurt something.

The people that I play up against tend to go after the stealth suits more then the crises suits. I have used them to outflank and deep strike them.

When deep striked, they cant move or jump back in assault phase. They can either run far away from enemy or shoot to 18".

When playing against marines, their thougness and armour protects them from burst cannons. When playing against orks, their huge numbers protects them. In the next turn what I see is my SSs assaulted and slaughtered by them.

That is why you outflank with them, sometimes they will be out of position due to the progress the game has made but most of the time there is a nice rear armor or other squishy target near enough to the edge to get some shots off and do damage. Then they get the 6" move after shooting.

They are not my favorite unit by any means but they do have advantages over crisis suits. Not many but some.

Squad size 6
Infiltrate(outflank)
Stealth
