Default Who is the Biggest bad a$$

So I'm sitting at home and asking my self the question "Who or What is the most expensive unit in the game. So what do you guys think is the most expensive non vehical unit (i.e. fulls up a single choice on the army list org. chart) not only in points but also in dolar amounts too.

If you want to go ahead and post the most expensive tank.

Forgeworld Bloodthrister.

Edit: Oops. I misread the post. I thought he was asking single model not squad or vehicle.

Three very expensive options I can think of off the top of my head

10 Wraithguard w/ spiritseer, conceal, singing spear - 399 points
About $270 canadian before tax.

Farseer on jet bike w/ fortune, doom, singing spear, runes of warding
10 Spirit seers on jet bikes, 1 with enhance, 1 with embolden, 8 with destructor, all with singing spears
813 points. About $260-280 Canadian.

Farsight and full bodyguard. You can easily make this squad 800 points, probably 1000 if you wanted.
Cost $250 Canadian.

Not to mention some of the Chaos command squads you can make, that have literally infinite points values.

Forgeworld manta.

It's the same cost as an army, and costs an arm and a leg as well (just over £870 I believe)

And the FW LoC when it comes out. simply because the other 3 gods have point values equal to their sacred number but in triple digits. 666,777,888, so the LoC will be a lot.

It's ulthwe, and as of the 4th ed. eldar 'dex, it no longer exists.

Tau manta is massive though, ~2000 points, twin railCANNONS, 6 ion cannons, who knows how many burst cannons underneath...
I don't think anything can top that.

Mmmm, angorath, cheese demon. Honestly, the whole balance of those units is just...sketchy, to say the least. But, in terms of single non flier/titan models, they've gotta win.

Highest costing tau unit would of course be a tricked out farsight retinue.

The Minor Psychic Powers make some stuf infinite, does it not?

The Tau Manta has to be the biggest baddest vehical, but Tank is the baneblade, hands down.

Non-FW? Farsight and retinue.
FW? Manta.
This isn't counting the units with the "infinite" points....
