Well, this is generally a thread for you to post your opinions on special characters. Specify in your post what character you think is worst if you choose "other".

Worst special? Either Ahriman, simply because hes overpriced or Aun'va as he doesn't add that much to the tau army for the risk he (or any etheral) brings

The Avatar is not a special character...

My vote would be for the Tau Space Pope (can't even remember his real name, because he's never used by anyone, ever).

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Definitely the Space Pope, has REALLY crappy stats, does practically nothing for you the entire game for a whopping 200+ points, and when he dies you have to take a morale test, then you get preferred enemy(or was it furious charge?)....but only tau...what were they thinking?

My advice to you is to get married, if you have a good wife you'll be happy; if you get a bad one you'll become a philosopher.

In the grim darkness of the future the economy has even hit daemons, The Changeling is working at White Castle and Skarbrand is giving head in the alley next to Fateweaver's.You ever receive fellatio from a rhyming demon? It's a bad scene man.

Sticking your junk into a fang-filled mouth that breathes fire doesn't strike me as particularly smart.
Which is why that option should be available to any willing to take it.

In fact, there should be fang-faced, firebreathing demons on every streetcorner offering to pay 100 dollars to give BJ's. The gene pool would be vastly better off without anyone incapable of thinking it through.

Aun'Va, no contest. Farsight is a close second.

Aun'Va!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got the model because he's the leader of the Tau, but his stats really turn me off. Shaowsun and Farsight are pretty bad to, but nothing compared to Aun'Va. Seems like Tau have the worst characters .

If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

I voted for Marneus Calgar as I am not terribly fond of Ultramarines.

Marneus Calgar..the WORST special character? 4W with Eternal warrior? ap2 storm bolter? and twin Pfists? No way.

I am think the Space pope or Lucius the Eternal, a Regular Chaos Lord with MoS and Blissgiver does his job better than he does.
