    I think a TAC list from someone who doesn't play in large tournaments should still consider the lists (and styles of play) that show up in them.

    Then we have different definitions of TAC. When I think about TAC I'm thinking much broader than a local meta. In fact it seems oxymoronic to suggest that a list is designed to "take all comers" when you built it with only your local meta in mind.

    Yes, this is the straw-man part. It's irrelevant if you're trying to build a truly TAC list.

    I realize it's 1 CP and an 85pt deficit. But I still can't think of a compelling scenario where you pick that over the wild card. Also, the idea that an assassin loses "auto-include" status because of one's local meta is a straw-man argument. If you're building a TAC list, it's clearly better to have the wild card than not. And I still can't think of an army composition that would function better without the wildcard than with it.

    I like your analysis. I agree that vehicle-heavy lists are the worst match-up for an assassin, but I still can't think of a list that would prefer to have 1 extra CP instead of a unit that can easily grab Linebreaker, contribute to Recon, and generally camp objectives / be annoying. The Culexus is definitely the best for this "keep-away" role.

    I struggle to think of any mission in which it would be disadvantageous to use 85 reserve points on one of these assassins

    Dusldorf's 8th edition army lists

    Well BS 3 (this is 8th ed :P) and I can use the unique Vostroyan stratagem to make one of them hit on 2's!

    The poof happens pre-game when you use the strat to add an assassin

    It's different from scout snipers because assassins are a wild card. If you're up against a list that seems ill-suited for a vindicare -- POOF! now he's an eversor, or whatever you might want. You have to evaluate the utility of all four assassins at once against the utility of a unit that takes up a force org slot.

    I really hope they take a similar approach to adding Inquisition to Imperial armies

    Yes but only the assassin summoning strat, he can't summon daemons

    You'd still be battleforged since the assassin isn't part of your list. It's reinforcement points.

    13, since the summon an assassin strat is only usable once per game

    Is...is this what it's like to trust GW?
