What's the singular most annoying model or unit you can see your opponent pull out of his carry case?

It has to be the Tau Crisis Suit for me. Anything that jumps out, shoots me up, and then leaps out of sight and hides so I can't retaliate is downright maddening to me. What's yours?

Now that I consider it more carefully, I think Space Marines are the most annoying thing to see come out of a case. Because I have Space Marines. And I'm too stubborn to get another non-power armoured army. I just wish people played more than just Space Marines. I mean, I do. Just not much. But my excuse is more of an interest in the fluff rather than the simple fact that they're cheap to build.

Eldrad, without a doubt.
He needs to stay dead ;-)

I have to second Eldrad from a fluff POV, it's bad enough that every Eldar army is being led by one guy but he's dead to top it all.
I expect to see Eldrad and his many brothers at the GT.

From a rules POV, anything Iron Warriors- enough said.

not just one model, but usually when they pull out a whole army of Jeanstealers, you just know for a fact, that by the end of the day, your men will have no jeans lol.

Genestealers, yuk

A whole army of genestealers is a pushover. They're too expensive per model to form an effective horde-- even with extended carapace, they're too few to pose a meaningful threat. Shooting of any sort will stop a genestealer army pretty quickly. Yes, you'll fight some in close combat, but when Space Marines outnumber Tyranids, you know you're in good shape.

Mine is just there cheap to build lol, I can't afford large armies on a military pay, it sucks, so I gotta sell my guard and buy Dark Angels, but thankfully I love there Fluff so its a 2 for 1 deal lol

Also another completely useless unit I hate is the Basilsik, everyone suggests using it, well there all idiots, I have never seen a basilisk be of any use to anyone, no one I know actually owns one, even those that suggest them say they don't have one cuz its rubbish (thats irish logic for yah) there guess range minimum is a joke, your enemy moves once and thats it its useless you have to expose it, I'm sorry but people stop saying its a good vehicle, a weapon like that has only one role and thats bombard from at least 200inches away not 48".

I have to disagree with you Stella. I have one in my LatD army and it has more than earned its points back every time. Hell, it is worth it simply for the fact that the opponent is forced to deploy all spread out just to avoid being pie plated to death, but add in the fact that it can kill whole units at time, not to mention seriously damage any and all vehicles, and I don't leave home without it.

I've only played one and got beat but its not for that reason they have no character unless you know your going to play an AC your army will have no where near enough anti-tank to even get close to winning.
