Default Shas'ui - Worth Its' Points?

Say you're gonna FoF, and it comes down to where you can either afford 1 Shas'ui or 2 Fire Warriors, but not 1 of each. Is the Shas'ui worth it for the enhanced leadership, or the 2 Fire Warriors for the extra firepower?

Default Re: Shas'ui - Worth Its' Points?

In general, the Shas'ui is worth the points b/c the +1 leadership has a pretty significant effect on the probability of passing leadership. As for whether you should buy the 'ui upgrade or one more FW, a lot depends on how many FWs are in the squad IMO - you should aim to have even #'s in the squad b/c one extra FW in a squad of 11 (making it 12) means you don't drop below 50% until you 7 FWs vs. 6 for a squad size of 11. OTOH, adding one FW to go from 10 to 11 has very little impact.
