Aun'shi should just herd up all the Krootox's and leave with them and go far, far away because they're not worth anything!

LOL. ;D Poor Aun'shi, so little time, so many menial tasks to perform.

I would have voted for a lone suit ('o or 'el depending on what you like). The rest of the choices pretty low on my list.

I understand the aversion to Bodyguards, but doesn't taking them allow a Tau army to field another 2 Crisis Suits?* It'd only really apply to large battles, but since Tau can only take 3 elites, that's 9 Crisis Suits (or mix of Stealth/Crisis).* Taking the bodyguard option allows for 2 more suits.

Course, that's just HUGE battles I guess.* I've come over to the Shas'el is the best HQ line of thinking as it seems to give most bang for the buck.* A Shas'o in my armies has yet to pay for that 25 point upgrade....

Yeah, but even in large battels I wouldn't take them because they're a bit pricy for what they are and they take away the commander's IC rules. plus, 9 Crisis suits is by far enough.

yeah, the bodyguarrds allow 2 more crisis, but heyre overpriced and compromise effectiveness, I'd rather have another 'El myself.
