I like Shadowsun, although she is pretty specialized in how she can be used. Aun'va is interesting and colorful, but his character design is ultimately flawed. He is just too hard to protect, and the benefits he provides are diminished significantly now that Ethereals need line-of-sight to be effective. I have never used Farsight, but my impression is that he makes for a nice change of pace once you have a sizeable force. For me, Aun'Shi, despite the sentimentality he now enjoys, was always a little too expensive for what he did and how much support could be provided to him. O'R'Myr from Forge World is probably my favorite, but I don't find many occasions to use him.

Nobody expects a Tau who excels in CC. Everytime I've used Farsight it's been memorable, so he gets my vote.

Have never used Aun'va. I'm unimpressed by ethereals in general and can't see anything in Aun'va to redeem my opinion.

I just think and feel that there is no a real hero in the Tau army.
Special characters, commanders... yes.
But Heroes?
Not on my book.

Shadow sun = kick d'yi (sexy face... omg tau have no breasts) female comander in a mech suit

Farsight = a sick close quarters tau rocking battle suit army and a real fluffwise hero for the tau

Aun'va = someone who should be in a retirment home but refuses to stay there and has skin tougher than creamite plates because of his strange walker/cane

Aun'shi = the most ecinomic tau leader that also kicks d'yi

Kais = i'll find out when i can find the fraging book in a store!!!!!!!!!


wins:21 Draws:9 Losses:8
