I have some skitarii models in my drawer and am looking to start a KT using them.

Anyone know how good the team is?

They looked pretty capable in the Miniwar gaming bat reps, their sniper/specialist especially so.

Necrons - 4k
Dark angels - 2k
Alpha Legion 30k - 2k

"There needs to be more necrons in 30k, when you've been asleep for millions of years 10k might as well be a rounding error"

They actually make a decent team

The sniper is pretty frikken tasty, but it's odd when I see how two of my specialists are mostly CCB, while my enginseer actually compliments the Skitarii's shooty style (plus how the sniper has a 6+ armor roll, that reroll is good).

I'm thinking to just go full guns, and drop all forms of CCW since my guns are just SO good. Any thoughts?

I'm pretty damn new to the 40k world and was wondering the same thing. Skitarii teams can get three specialist, all snipers?

I run a team of them currently.

This is a game where you need bodies.

You could run 1 Leader, 3 specialists all with the large sniper. The leader could have a omnispex, that's 1k points.

Second your hit though you go down. The army is very easy to counter. Plus any mission where you need to move around, you cant shoot with 75% of the army.
