Default Best Special Character

I was possibly thinking of trying out a special character and was wondering what the best ones are. Could you also post why he is the best character?

You forgot the two greatest Characters to walk the face of 40k... Marbo and Straken (along with a few others like macharius).

But outa them Gaunt, he is the most well rounded of those characters by far.

Marbo and Straken are Catachan Deathworld, not Guard.

It's got to be Gaunt... that bastard killed 500 points of Space Wolves the last time I went against him! That's 666.2/3% of his points earned back!

I voted for Yarrick (Force field is appealing), but I actually think Creed and Kell are a better choice. Each of them cost 62.5 points and stats better than Heroic Senior Officers that are 70 points. If only they had medpacks.
