Default Should I....?

i was playing around with this idea about protecting my commander. i thought about have a bodyguard and giving him the uber protection. i put it on that wonderful list we all make, the-not-to-important-point-spendings-but-would-be-nice-to-have-so-ill-just-spend-it-if-i-have-any-leftover-but-probably-will-not-anyway
list

yea.... you know what i mean

i have commander farsight leading my army and reading he's stats over and over again he's somewhat vurnable. he's armour save is OK but this is the commander we're talking about here! also he may suffer instant death (NOOOooooo), and that would totally suck! but he does have that shield gen but i still felt its not enough

SO i thought i could take a bodyguard, give him the stim packs maybe a shield gen AND shield drone, that way no one may touch farsight so easily!

is this a good idea or am i just paranoid wasting alot of points? is farsight ok by himselve usually? as always much appreciated!

Your being way to protective. No commander has 100% chance of surviving, and if you spend to many points on him your army will have none left for the main units.

He is safer by himself, at least from shooting. If you are worried, surround him with a squadron of gun drones. Or keep an Elite Crisis team nearby. But don't give him a bodyguard unless you really need to cram a few more crisis suits into your army.

He is a special character correct? From memory, I don't have my Codex here on base atm, but I'm pretty sure that you can not buy equipment for special characters above and beyond what their profile in question stats they come with.

Agreed. His IC status will protect him from almost all shooting and if you really want to protect him you can probably keep him out of a melee with good use of his maneuverability.

But that's boring, give him a chance to kill something.

Either keep him alone, or give him a full compliment of cheap body guards with good guns, it is a tad more expensive however it gives him the same amount of protection with great firepower too.

Err that was a Serious comment. In total Farsight with a tooled out body gaurd with sheild drones comes to around 900 or so points, so i have no idea what you seem to be raveing on about :-\

Of cource IC as others have noted dose offer the best protection
