Default Two Shas'o?

Does anyone ever take 2x Shaso? I know they are quite expensive but with the right upgrades it seems like they could be very effective, especially since no one uses etherals for their 2nd HQ slot.

Two Shas Os That is just not right Shas O is a special charecter There is only one of him so there should only be one on the field
Does that help?

Shas'Os are not special characters. They're just commanders, and it's not often that they work in the same cadre. However, it's not impossible to do so fluff-wise.

As for whether or not it should be done, I doubt it. As you said, it'd be very expensive, the basic cost nearly that of a Shas'ui Teamleader Fireknife with targeting array. I'd say two Shas'els would be more viable.

A Shas'o is not a special character. A special character is a character completely developed by Gamesworkshop, with wargear, weapons, and abilities that cannot be edited. The Tau Shas'o is a normal HQ character.

It takes a lot for me to field one Shas'o in an army, let alone two. Unlike most armies, Tau don't really use our HQ choices for close-combat, making the difference in stats between the 'el and the 'o less important. I would probably only field two Shas'o above the 3,000-point level.

errr... maybe go a little easier on the Tau font. The point of the forums is communication, after all.

That would probably be because Tyranids don't write, but this is off-topic.

It could make sense... Just have them like Twins and both in command of a force.
