-stats and points as normal, but there is an optional upgrade:
Ancient: 30 points.
The Autarch has spent eons fighting; her bones have hardened, along with her soul, and she fights with the grim determination of the old.
-1 W, +1 S, T, Eternal Warrior, forcefield save improved to 3++
So that gives us:
ws bs s t w i a ld sv
7...7..4 4 2 7 4 10 3+/3++
I think that would be okay. Those are some truly significant benefits, but the reduction of a wound is also huge. With those benefits, I would still have to think hard about taking an Autarch, but I might actually do it. It'd be better than taking them only as "+1 to reserves, with a meltagun".
Upon reviewing what I just wrote, the only addition I would like to suggest is that after "she fights with the grim determination of the old" one could add, "(suck it, Dante! She gets EW!)"
