I'm not a fan, I don't use stealth suits though. points wise she costs 20 more than what I use and has one less wound. I don't really see the point to her.

I'm not a fan either she has to get up close and personal to have any effect on vech which is what meltas are really for and when she does that she has a chance to blow up maybe one vech before being shot to death even with an invul and stealth field. On the whole in the regular codex (nothing Forge world) I would perfer farsight over her but only for a fun theme list not a real serious game. Honestly all our special characters are not good except for forgeworld characters. One of the reasons everyone is hoping for a revision of our special characters come next codex

Shadowsun in my opinion is a super ethereal with 10 leadership for everyone in 18 inches with all those shields and stealth she's very unlikely to be killed and is more meant to counter fast moving incoming vehicles like vendettas gunships or pretty much anything blood angels.

she's expensive but a great way to keep a static gunline full of firewarriprs/pathfinders together so it depends on what kinda army your fielding if you have no need of LD boosting due to a high number of vehicles/mech she's fairly rubbish.

When i first saw shadowsun in the codex I didn't think "wow!" and i still don't. Shadowsun to me is only good if you really like the whole up-close-and-personal because you need a pretty short range to use those fusion blasters. For the sort of armies I face on a regular basis she is not a good choice.
