The Helios. My normal 500-1000 point lists always have a Helios Shas'el with a Shield Gen.
My 2000-3000 point lists have a duo of Helios, admittedly my lists don't have many of them but they are my favourite.
Nothing seems to beat a lone guy getting the 12" and slaughtering the heaviest infantry. In my last two small scale games the commander has killed two Twin Devourer/Warp Field Flyrants.

Helios is also my favorite. I only ever face SM, CSM, and Necrons, so negating their armor saves is always fun. I'm the same as Korill... my 500-1000pt armies also have a Helios Shas'el at the head. There's nothing quite as satisfying as a successful deepstrike of a Helios behind a Rhino full of Space Marine and watching it go boom ;D

My fav is my XV-81 Centurion, SMS, CIB and PR - he is great for taking out most troops at mid-range.

Default Re: Crisis!

helios would be my favorite, I find it give my army much needed AP 1 and 2 firepower, termies beware I take two helios suits (shas'o/shas'vre) and deepstrick them in conjuction with my infiltrating stealth team and blast combat squads.
"They shall be my finest Cannon Fodder, these men who give themselves to me. Like clay I will mold them and in the furnace of war they will become cracked and broken. They will be of tissue paper and whimpy muscle. In tissue paper armor I clad them and with the mightiest flashlights they will be armed. They will be touched by every sort of plauge or disease to help further make them unhappy, all sickness will blight them. They will have almost no tactics, strategies, but lots of machines so that they can atleast stand up to a foe in battle. They are my tar pit against the Terror. They are the bulk of Humanity. They are my Imperial Guard and they will know much fear!"

Deathrain, and yes I know I did not suprise anyone with that statement ^_^ The most basic, cheapest BSF Death Rain. Works by the princeple, If the Brute Strenght doesn't work, you are not using enough.

Followed by probably Centurion for the commander. You can't pass up all those 2+ to hit ^_^. 6-7 Shots with good of chance of AP1's from CIB and 2+ hit on plasma.

Then by Hail Storm. Burst cannons and AFP. Dumps pretty solid ammount of fire power

Last but not least would probbably be Fire Surge for deepstrikes.

P.S. Recently with new body gaurd rules... and just new edition. I was thinking of Fire Stom or Blade Storm bodygaurds...

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!
