Meh, personally opinion wise, O'Shovah, or just a Shas'O. bodyguards are a waste of pts IMO and I'd rather have the IC rule.

What? waste pts. on what, O'shovah or a Shas'O??

Bodyguards are not really much of a use as you lose your Independant character rules and they're pricy for what they are.

I mean the 25pt waste of Shas'o compared to Shas'el. Also bodygaurds are good because it means more firepower....which is what I like...hehe...

Bodyguards are a waste. For 15 pts more than a normal Crisis suit, they limit your HQ's abilites. Take em out for a normal crisis squad.

hmm, theres no option for commander on his onw, if there was then its the fireknife shas'el or possibly 'o, in fact it doesnt have to even be fireknifed, jsut configued to make up for what your army lacks (eg anit-marine - plasma, not many shots - burst cannon)

Yes you can but the two Plasma Rifles become one Twin-Linked Plasma Rifle.
