Since a termi chaplain with a stormbolter is 70 pts less than lysander, that was actually my first choice, and I was going to lose a teleport homer to buy 2 more razorbacks. But I came to 2 conclusions, the unit I want my IC to fight will be equipped exclusively with S 8 instant killing weapons, and as such any character without eternal warrior, no matter how good the save (also rosarius only being 4+) would almost certainly be killed in the initial strike wasting the points. Lysander should survive for at least 2 assault phases and in the course of them put out 6 or 7 S 10 attacks that actually give me a chance of instant killing one of the ork characters.

Also I dont have the time to build, convert (I sculpt chapter iconography for my doors), and paint 2 more razorbacks, and I need them fully painted to use them.


All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

No problem, its just otherwise I would have taken the chaplain for extra hits, and/or a librarian to give both firepower, high end CC abilities, and a force weapon to the unit
