is it worth it to have colonel schaeffer's last chancers?? i was thinking bout it today, and iwas wondering if it would be a good idea??. it takes up a lot of points, and 2 troops and 1 hq if u make a full list. but i wanna hear from people ou there who have u sed them, or got any opinions bout them?? i wanna also ask bout gaunts ghosts. is it worth it to include him in ur army?? any ideas for supporting units??
personally, the last chancers are useless...they cost more points than stormtroopers and they have less of an armor save too. The gaunts ghosts are cool, but they dont really work that well against tank heavy army. My guard list is all about blowning things up with alot of power, so i dont really have expierence with them, but i have known people who have and they only use them for fluff purposes, because there are better units that cost less.

If you're trying to win a tournament, I'd shelve them, but if you're playing for fun, go for it. They'll definetally provide some flavor to your army, and who knows, you might take down a monolith, beat a bloodthirster in hand to hand, attack a carnifex at point blank range, or something else appropriately suicidal.
Ive used them once before, mainly for the shock value. I loaded them up with plasma and carapace making em 36 points a pop. Needless to say 20 of em cost way to much. But because my space marine opponent wasn't expecting it I did A LOT of damage before they died. Dont expect them to do a lot of they see it coming.
i was wondering if it would be good to use them as 1 man demo charge shuads and deep strike them behind ememy squads?? they would be pretty good, and ull be hitting the rear armour too, so a strength8, ap2 ordinace in the rear might hert for a bit. and the fact they only cost 26pts, too good. u can also use the cornnal and kage as shock troops with stormies or vets. let ur infantry squads shoot then deep strike and assualt. kage and shaffer count as a hq choice so u dont have to include a command platton -too good
