3 of them with 2 drones and 2 more from the Ethereal is as solid as it gets if youre hell bent on actually making him survive.
Just watch out for outflanking things and other surprises....

I would put him on the highest place on the battlefield in plain sight so that every soul on the field can tremble before him. Lol.

Of course I am a bit biased since Vindicare Assassins have a special place in my battle plan...

Hide him in a cave with half the army.

Or wrong foot your enemy in a suicidal charge forward?

Thanks for all imputs I hope they keep coming. It is nice to see that most posts have been productive, I know they are the worst HQ choice but lets face it some players will want to field them and at least this will give them some ideas.

YOU GUYS/GALS ARE AWESOME KEEP IT UP!!!



So I am growing my enemy.....so what I gotta kill something.

@stalarious: it was just a joke, I hate etherals I would make it hide behind my hammerhead with my firewarriors- which no one shoots at as I let it out everywhere I only take them as it is compulsory and use his bodyguard for fish'O'fury

........
Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

I'd put him in your figure case, so he can fill up a space that may be spare...that is the only use

Ok I have ran them before, I know you can yell at your screens at my stupidity but here me out.

I run with a second more reliable hq choice nearby and I charge the guy into and area that I need to deny my enemy and hold him there then when he dies(its never if) then I have the second hq their to help me troops with their morale roll it a very expensive way to get hatred but most times my opponent thinks easy points. Then when most of my men pass their test its payback time. In short i use them as a bait and swap.

Yes I have heard of the suicidal hate machine before but it just doesn't seem to me that re-rolls to hit in CC could do 5 fire warriors worth of points damage for tau unless you had a really big game but then it's more of a risk of a unit or two cutting and running.

You could...

A) Use it with Broadside camping

B) Get everyone into a vehicle, and let the poor bastard die. That's what I was told.
