Default Anyone else want an Ethereal to die sometimes?

I havebeen playing a few games in order to get used to the new codex. If you read one of my earlier posts, my etheral got sniped. Im i the only one who has a happy reaction when an Etheral dies? Sure you take tests but those who fail get boosted stats...i mean MELEE stats..

So my question. Anyone considering a army list that would actually want the etheral to die for the stat boost?

Im looking into Aun'va Melee Army and a normal Tau Etheral Army...

or am i just crazy? >

yeah i know its kinda stupid. but to see the tau do semi-well in combat once...its kinda tempting to see how far you can go, you know?

The con is that it's entirely possible half your army will run off the board before they get the Preffered Enemy special rule.

It may actually work in some armies, but it's ridiculously unfluffy. Like....... Damn, that's already been said!
