Default Most Worthless Unit?

In your opinion, what is the single most useless unit in your opinion? Consider points value as well as battlefield application-- a really good unit that's too expensive can be a bigger detriment to an army than a really cheap unit that doesn't do much!

SM scouts what is the point in them? when for an extra two points per figure you could have a regular space marine tactical squad which also has more h/wep options a better armour save and in my oppinion look much better perhaps the only good thing about scouts is pinning or infiltrate.

SW wolf scouts are totally worth it,

anyway most useless unit i think for SW, Blood Claw Jump packs like 40 pts each

Despite kitting up some fancy looking bikes I think I'm gonna have to second the opinion that SM bikers are pretty worthless compared to their points. They die just about as easily as a footed marine and cost a hefty deal more points. They have their uses, sure... but I've personally never been able to get them to really work for me.

I find nothing useless (e.g. some people thought that grots were useless, ended up almost killing a terminator squad with them beefore the game finished :D)

I'm not insane I just lack sanity, there's a difference....................somewhere

biovore-not an effective heavy compared to others also a 0-1 restriction
inquisitor-way to many points just fluffy not efective
techmarine-to hard to use (really bad in the dark angels codex)
pariah-not necrons, slow, expensive
scout bikers- 4+ save on a bike pure crap
land speeder typhoon-never even seen one on the table
lictors- to many points, unpredictable east to kill, non scoring, also a 0-1 restriction
repentia-to expensive, to hard to use, not fast enough.
there are probably more these are all equally bad in my book.
