Now that combi-stasis is officially not one use only would you say that they are an auto include for anything that can take them? Even tacticals?
They lost rending from sniper vets so that’s a big negatory. I’d still take at least one on a vet squad since they’ll be charging into cc. For tacticals...we don’t have much bite in cc to warrant using them unless you have spare points lying around.
Slapping one on a praetor with a terranic greatsword is a phenomenal idea as you can nerf your opponent’s stompy squad and try to ID the other praetor before he gets to swing.
Wait, Sniper Vets no longer have rending? Since when?!
They lost it for Template Weapons specifically such as Flamers; Sniper has never been rending either its always been Ap2 on 6s to wound.
