What does darnath Lysander do?I heard he is good and I don't have my codex
He's got a bunch of nifty tricks, can't say it really adds up to being worth the point cost though.
Mostly he's a tank - the dude can soak up stupid volumes of AT fire that'd flatten any other HQ.
His hammer hits at S10 and adds 1 to the vehicle damage table, stubborn as a chapter tactic, rerolls to hit with all bolter weapons in his squad, 4 wounds, a storm shield, and eternal warrior. Plus he's a captain and can still take a Command Squad. He's a fantastic addition to a 10 man unit of Sternguard, if you can get them into position somehow.
I don't argue that he's pretty damned good, I just don't think he's worth as much as he is.
Put him with a ten man tactical terminator squad with two cyclone misisle launchers and you have a relentless devestator squad with nine powerfists and twenty re-rollable to hit storm bolter shots.
Nothing much stands up to that!
