Default Special character

in the protfile of Aun'va in the new tau codex, it says his paradox of duality counts as a close combat weapon-does that mean anything?

Why did they have to give Shadowsun dodgy fluff and make a space-pope to replace Aun'Shi?
Why?? :'(

Screw Aun'shi, but why did they have to give Aun'va bodyguards that don't protect him and Shadowsun drones that don't really protect her. It's like they went out of their way to keep them from being ICs.

I liked Aun'Shi.... his parry ability is/was great for buying time in CC or tying up enemy units.. plus the rules for squads he joined, while not amazing, helped. I really with they had kept him....

I think they should add Puretide as a commander in the next CA. I know he would probably be dead by now but his fluff is so great, not to mention that he would give us some needed shift in command structure.

Well, ya know... if they WERE IC then they might actually be useful, instead of a big target-sign with "its like killing landraider, but without the 'tough to kill' part!" written on it
