All those special rules are why I don't like him. That and the fact that he worships the corpse emperor.

agreed KittyClaw, but Aun'va definitely holds the crown, eventhough I haven't played against him nor have I used a Tau army in order to use him but every Tau player I have ever known since his release not one has ever spoken highly or anywhere near of this character.

Space pope.

Probably holds the title for 'most useless unit' in the current way of things.

Shadowsun or Aun'Va. They're as bad as each other.

Only one I can actually think of that actually nerfs your army is AunVa.

I'm also thinking Cortez isn't that far behind, for his cost in an Over Priced Army, being built for assault with stats not built for an assault, in an army which favours shooting on the whole.

Aun'Va aside, i think Lucius the Eternal and Ahriman are both right up there.

Lucius can't win a fight against dedicated assault units to save his life, despite CC being his entire focus. His Doom Siren is a saving grace, but for just over his points you could take a 5-man Noise Marine squad with Rhino and Doom Siren champ.

Ahriman will lose in a 1v1 Psyker fight with just about any Psyker in the game, since Chaos has no psychic defence. Kinda sad when a 250 pt model can be taken out by a 150 pt Rune Priest without it breaking a sweat.

The worst isn't on the poll. It's Aun Va, hands down. He's the worst. He doesn't even do anything, and if he dies ( and he will) you pretty much lose.

You have pretty much lost just by taking that guy...
