In game - one of the most useless units since... since... oh heck, this is hard... well... he's useless.

For the sake of fluff - IMO, anyone who would let the most venerated leader of your species within a sector of a warzone should be shot of sight if it wern't for the fact that the muzzle flash would finish of Aun'Vas vision.

as far as your army goes, hes as useless as an all gretchin army. Wait, the gretchin might actually have a chance. slight but still there.

umm..... wow.... Dra'Tuisich-Novae is right, he is the most useless model in the game, let alone the most worthless character.

I've tried coming up with ways to use him in my army, cause the model reminds me of the prophet of regret from halo 2. but everytime I try to come up with a way to use him my ears start to bleed and my eyes blur until I pass out.

I think they're trying to use him as a prophet or something over in Codex:Halo. Hey, if you field him at least you'll have a very...erm...UNIQUE army, to put it lightly.

You know, I heard somewhere that a 1000 piont gretchin army can beat a 1000 piont termie army.

I think we're all forgeting the dark eldar character in the raider. All it takes is a glancing 6 to kill him.

all in all a useless little fella
i was quite disappointed, i was expecting maybe a rule upgrade with the new codex but ethereals seem to be as flimsy if not worse than before. The only ethereal that i ever considered fielding was Aun'shi but now hes been dumped >
