In a Commanders game, you'll be able to take a shield-captain as well, to give your guys rerolls to hit! In exchange, the Vanguard has the radiation effect of T-1 when close, and the Ranger/Vanguard unit compensate this with much better weapon choices: Plasma Calibers are great Assault 2 weapons, and the Transuranic Arquebus can just stay in the background sniping any enemy that might need a mortal wound or D3 damage.

The death cult assassin is there to move around the map getting up close and personal against the specialisms of the enemy, taking them down one by one in melee while they are distracted against the Team Fortress knockoff in the center of the map.

She can be squishy with only 1W and an iffy save, but at least has a save unlike the flagellants. Your safety distance in a given movement phase is 9 inches. If you send the gretchins to block the custodes' movements by keeping them in melee, the kommandoes to get the "Kunnin’ Infiltrators" stratagem to move behind enemy lines and take difficult objectives, and the boy with the rockit just in case you get lucky and manage to get one down in one shot, you can have uncontested control of the battlefield. You want to defeat the followers of the Omnissiah? auspex, omnispex, Shooting 2A) or benefit from obscurity (Demo 1) and you begin to see why you should pick something else. Keep them protected, because the enemy knows it as well. As it stands, its mostly just another example of GW's amazing writing. Counterpoint - the Repentia is very fragile, and is so good in melee that you really want to keep her there. Well read on...

Choose Ranger as you don't want this thing to ever, EVER, go to melee. A natural save of 3+ is quite good, and as such teams like Rogue Traders, SotA and Kroot (of course the poor kroot can't catch a break) will struggle. Although be aware, for example, you're not going to win against Tau in a straight out shooting match. Grey knight are still 1 wound space marines. Play it with the most adorable and small dog model you can find for maximum effect. Rangers are better for shooting GEQ from long distances, while vanguards are more versatile and flexible overall. The problem comes with the inability of shooting after moving, meaning if you want to use it, it will be a sitting duck. At least the three of them have W2, so they will be able to deal with more damage than the rest. S3 A1 won't get them anywhere in melee, thus you want them shooting. But even without looking at the list, most SM units share a 3+ save, so anything that could reliably lower that is a safe bet. Just make sure the size of the model is the current scale. Second, you're godlike in melee. After this however, the modifiers will apply, meaning that if you have 2 marines already out of action your other marines will fail their Nerve test on a 6, without their ability granting them a re-roll. Right of the bat, you'll see neither option is particularly tanky, though considering the leader is usually best on the back of your army, it should not be a problem at first. Seriously, WS3+, A2, S3 AP0 means that it won't ever do any real damage to anything remotely armoured, and with T3 6+/0++, it will die very quickly. The rest of the match after that is probably going to be very brief and very painful. Or switch a Plasma to a Transuranic arquebus for exactly 100 pts. This is a really bad limitation, guaranteeing the Rogue Trader lists will always be the same. As per the Rogue Trader herself... Do whatever you want, the kitbashing posibilities with that model are immense. Pretty much identical to the regular voidsmen, but with W2, extra leadership, 2A and a Artificer Shotgun. While overcharging plasma is never without risks, the Dark Angels seriously mitigate that risk, and make running more than one plasma weapon viable, if expensive.

Admech is also vulnerable to bringing the wrong trousers list. In this, do not be afraid to trade units with your enemies. It's a good thing too - with no Commander of your own, the enemy team could have more than a 100pts worth of extra force available to them than you have.

Also, they have a really short unit cap: one maximum voidsmaster, one maximum gunner and three maximum regular voidsmen. Not so sure... Mortal wound is during the charge. If you're trying to fight at range your choice is to either duke it out with them or move to break LOS.

They are 2 points cheaper, can shoot after moving (and running), have more shots and the better AP is vital against 2+ saves. It also has a decent pistol, but if it's close enough to an enemy model to use it effectively, you're doing something wrong. Counterpoint - Even hitting on 4+ and with no exploding hits, the Repentia is incredibly deadly.
