Default Enclave or standard?

Aun'shi and gun drone squads are sweet, and Kroot Carnivores are kinda cool. But does that compare to O'Shova, the Tau's only monsterous creature and the ork fighter upgrade? :-\

O'Shava and his Enclave are a waste. Anyway, they veered from the Aun's teachings.

I prefer normal, but I'll eventually get O'Shova.

I'm an avid Enclave player because I find it interesting and challenging compared to a standard Tau army.

I'm not an enclave player because I love my kroot and HH ;D, I can almost see the attraction of enclave(not really :P) but its a personal preference thing, IMO enclave doesnt offer a significant enough benefit.

but as an aside Aun'shi is a waste of points, he's bad his fluff is bad, its generally not a good unit.

O Shovah certainly is no waste, plus he sort of makes things more challenging, so worth a look if your getting bored with standard tau... Plus its funny for a CC orientated army to laugh at O Shovah and then have their strongest unit demolished by him.... so entertaining, especially when the model in question was a Tyrant...

just get a normal army and an o'shava model then you can switch between the two. plenty of people at my game club use an o'shava model as a normal shas'o they just say the dawn blade counts as as shield gen. seems fair enough.

When playing an Enclave army, you will always be the centerpiece of underestimation.

LONG LIVE THE ENCLAVES! When I am done with my Eldar army I am going to start a enclave army.
