who's *look's around* oh mine! I dont really know but a suit is a little more offensive than an ethereal,right? i'm going with the suit. not to mention the suit doesn't come with that messed up morale check rule.

All depends...

If you want a surefire suit, the shas`o is great.( he rocks in my opinion)

but the ethereal is highly useful. At 50 pts you have an hq choice(if you want to keep your hq cheap), he can reasonably fight, and that inspiring presence is wonderful. Contradict me and I`ll elaborate why its wonderful.

Go for both I say 8)

It feels great to paint the cape.

PS: I advise you highlight the hem of the robes(really royal look effect)

That would be a Shas'El with the Fireknife weapons configuration. Fireknife seems to be the most common config around and consists of a Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod and Multitracker. Thats about it really...
