Death Squads comes with a truckload of special items. My regular opponents all have the patience to go through the listings and see what stuff they like. I simply don't. Wink

What kind of items would you recommend for my - by now very shooty - Cadians?

Thanks a bunch!

P.S.: In case you're wondering: nope, I did not help in the design of the items. Wink

Well, Skavenslayer seems to love the reflex scope (great for shooty cadians!). Also a lucky charm is never a bad option early on. Hotshot packs are great for lasgun upgrades.

Rope and Hook are necessary for squads like my Orks (particularly in my new campaign), but might help your Cadians reach elevated shooting positions more readily.

Scope is a real winner... part of the "poor man sniper" kit. Lucky Charm is a "must have"... It can save your skin. Any item that could Cause Fear would be good, as it can protect you from Assault.

VISORS... if you get lots of smoke, you want them (as they let you see through it).

Items I would like for a shooty IG:

Reflex Scope: +1BS, yes please, work for most shooters.

Cameleoline, Clip Harness and Rope & Hook: are all ok´ish, dont go out of your way to get them, but if you got a few rarity searches and credit left, they can help.

Lucky Charm: is always good, start by getting you Captain one and see how credit and the game evolves.

Red-dot sight: If you use pistols, these can help a lot.

Tarot cards: The risk is great, but so is the reward.

Auspex: if your apponent got infilatrators, this can help contain him. (make sure the Auspex is given for a member with a 24" weapon: Autogun, Lasgun, Bolter or Hellgun)

As Mordheimer said, if your apponent use smoke, you should get some of the visors that help against that.

But, sometimes it can be better to buy, ex. Hotshots Packs every game for 1-2 members, thet looking for and buying a new item after every game.

Hope this helps Very Happy
