Default Aun'Va: A Good model with cool guards or a waste of points?

Hey i was wondering if Aun'Va and his Guards are a good choice? Is he really worth his points? Please reply.

well hes does make all guys in line of sight [] which for a static army is god like. He kinda sux for mecha armies tho, so only really use him if you have some unmounted firewarriors.

id say a little bit of both. if you make a static army then it is very worth it but otherwise just a cool model

An ugly model (insert halo 2 copyright infringement here ;D) and to be honest i can't see him being useful for anyone but static players

I was laughing at "A Good model". IMO its a poor sculpt. I don't know if its any good in large battles, but he does seem pretty resilient, so if it is I'll definitely be converting Aun'va, instead of using what GW provided :.

It could be a good showcase model, but i doubt that it's of much use in battle. He's basically one of the oldest ethereals.

I see him in battle would be every vengeful Ordo Xenos Inquisitor's wet dream.

"Aunva we have won!"

"Aunva?"

^^ LOL! I can imagine the huge war that would follow between the Tau and Imperials.

And I get the mental image of about a thousand imperial ships floating through tau space and destroying all of their orbital stations and fleets with ease. Then not even bothering with the planets and a whole bunch of exterminatuses.
