Default Aun'va, what should I do with him?

I am not sure what to really do with Aun'va. I have heard someone here say that he purposely killed him to get the special rules. i think it is an OK tactic. Imagine, a shaso always hitting on a 3 plus with 5 strength 6 hits on an enemy. a heavy flamer would annihilate him and his guards.

Here's what you do:

1) Buy about 50-60 Aun'Va Boxes
2) Get an Air Cannon
3) Go to GW
4) Pelt the building with Aun'Va Boxes until the cops show up or they get the point... Namely that

I agree with IBM there.

Other than that, remember, Aun'Va is a ginormous Pont sink (10% of a 2000 point army!) so it is a far from sound tactic...

Why the hell do they keep adding special characters that don't have any real use on the battlefield?

Use the spare parts to make either some sort of diorama, conversion, or whatever. Or use the Honor Guards as some sort of Ethereal, they kinda look cool.

Leave him in the codex, he has no use on the battlefield.

Um....that would be better off with a normal ethereal. But aun'va? You are crazy.

You are basically throwing a total of at least 200 pionts to get an effect that is pretty much undesirable for the tau.

I say farsight is the only charater that can be used in the codex.

You could do that, but then you've got your fingers crossed that your opponent will kill him for you, so I wouldn't count on it.

I think that only happens on the turn you charge, it's not always on.

IMO, yea he's probably not great. But I think he's best used with a static army. Basically if you look at him, he's meant to stand up front, give everyone a LD boost, and TAKE A LOT OF HITS. Quite seriously, with T5 and a 4+ re-rollable save, this guy is their to simply keep your FW lines standing and shooting. And once he goes down, your FW's are right their (if they pass their test), to sock it to the enemy when they come rushing in to assault your Tau. Beyond that, I don't think their's much else you can do with him. He may not be great but I'm willing to give him a try, if only to give my self a reason to make a cooler conversion of him and his bodyguards.
