Default Most Durable/Annoying Unit

What is the most durable or annoying unit you have fought? I'm thinking that the new Terminators with TH & SS are going to be rather annoying to deal with but the DE Archon can buy a 2+ invulnerable save until he fails it. Any others?

That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.

A tau shas'o with iridium armour, shield generator, stimulant injector and two shield drones. In affect, 6 wounds at T4 with a 2+ armour sv, 4+ invulnerable sv and feel no pain for four of those wounds. pretty good! (I actually use this guy and he has never died yet!)

not as hard as you might think, the extra point of toughness doesn't make them nastier than regular termies, since they can still be broken by killing three of them. If they were fearless, or had fnp, that would be different.....

check out the entropic reaper or remain a vagrant on the sidewalk of life.

I think a large celestian squad lead by a canoness can be really annoying. With divine guidance and the ability to have invulnerable saves it can take quite a bit of punishment.

I used to roll the dice, Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes

I'm afraid there's no authoritative source for thinking you're an asshole

I would say termies with storm shield and thunder hammer. They strike last but have amazing tanking capability with ther beardy 3+ invun which aslso means most will survive and then bring the pain with a bucket load of thunder hammer attacks. And lictors with their dodgey hit and run crap.

Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes
