    I'm on push button invisibility side. But it should not be like you vanish in thin air. Something like PS2 and wow combined. And eldars are best in this by the lore ?

    Not quite... ^^; There are some solid contenders :)
    Tau Stealth Suits, Commander Suit (Like Shadowsun's), Kroot Spaper/Carnivore/Hound, they got some nasty stealth tech. Also, Tyranid Lictor, Ravener (tho its more underground XD), Dark Eldar Mandrakes, Ork Kommando, Imperial Vindicare Assassin and the list goes on :)

    But yea, Eldar is amazing in guerilla warfare + stealth warfare :3

    Aah! Cant wait for this game to come out. I just want to be a striking scorpion butchering enemies from shadows..

    I read in an earlier post, Behavior didn't want certain styles of gameplay. I can't decipher whether it was aimed at the sniping aspect or traditional " stealth ", But the Vindicare seem's to hit both of those on the head.

    I could imagine fielding a Vindicare... Although i feel it would be unlikely in this game. That is if they stay within the lore to a high degree. Not as rare as a culexus assassin, but it isn't a common event i'm fairly sure.

    Does all this mean we won't get Eldar Ranger's? It'd be quite strange not to have them playable.

    Hopefully we would and would get one with no "sniper only" restrictions.
    After all, stealth can also be utilized to get into melta range...

    Aaaah stealth... A long time love story for me !

    If I could choose, it would probably be simple camo or cameleoline and maybe more important the "no red mark over the head" if enemy pass the mouse over us. That would favor the use of the environmental elements and map covers and not just press hide button and run across the plain in front of everyone...

    However, Eldar Rangers are quite a common sight :D Some Craftworlds are even famous for their heavy use of rangers ^^ (2x craftworld in fact)
    However... yea, the Imperial assassins are quite few and they specialise in different fields. But I think the Vindicare assassins are the most numerous among its kind.

    If I recall correctly, they said yes to snipers and no to scout classes. But we will see. Although, stealth is a major player in WH40k, since some factions combat style revolves around it (like, eldar and dark eldar, tau to name a few).

    I can only think of the Alaitocci starstriders, what is the other craftworld?
  9. Kilgar Kilgar Cipher

    Craftworld Telennar is also using Rangers to quite good extent. They formed warhosts with Alaitoc on several occasions ^^ One of their more notable work with Alaitoc was at Medusa V when they kicked a Warboss's ars trying to salvage a crashed Space Hulk :D
