Officio Assassinorum

Officio Assassinorum Tactical Summary as of 10-26-16

Imperial Assassin’s are one of the coolest aspects to the Warhammer 40k universe, having playing a role in many stories and battlefields over the years.

The Officio Assassinorum may look like an odd choice for allies. With only 4 Elite options, and each one costing over 130 points for only 1 model (The most expensive one is 150pts), they will lower your model count drastically. All the assassins get Move Through Cover, Infiltrate, and Fearless along with 4++ and an absurd stateline of WS8, BS8, and I7. They also have a special rule where enemy characters take a -2 penalty to Look Out, Sir! rolls for any wound caused by them. Each assassin has something special and unique to bring to the table, all with a specific role and goal. You’ll never see your opponent more annoyed at a single model than these assassins.

In general the assassins are good with three things: pester the fuck out of the enemy, provide a great distraction, and gun down the Warlord. They’re allies and support, nothing more. They’re Battle Brothers with other Armies of the Imperium, so you’ll rarely see assassins in xenos or Chaos armies. Since they can’t join other units and they’ll most likely be out of range to be affected by any Warlord traits or psychic blessings, the benefits can be dependent on the user. Another thing to note, since all Assassins have Infiltrate you won’t have that much of a problem with One Eye open if you play your cards right.

This consists of one of each type of assassin (Vindicare,Callidus, Eversor and Culexus.) The formation grants them Preferred Enemy against the Warlord and a bonus victory point if they kill it. Not bad in objective games as the extra objective point wouldn’t hurt, but you’ll need at least 570 points to drop if you want to field this formation.

Below you find all the quick reference material you need to build an competitive or fluffy Officio Assassinorum army.
