Who here prefers a tooled out Autarch or farseer to Eldar, Yriel or the phoenix lords. I left out Avatar because he is in a class all by himself. He can almost count as a special character with those stats.
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
If the points allow it, I never leave without Eldrad. Three powers per turn is just nasty. Cast doom, cast Guide, cast Fortune ( and in some cases, doom or guide again ), and let the rest of the army shoot the hell out of the doomed enemy unit.
( My oher choice is the avatar ( but you left him out, boo-hoo... ), because of his damn good stats. )
It's nothing new that Special Characters are FAR better then regular ones, even with increased point cost. That's why they are banned and forbidden (In his name...) on most tournaments. For players' sanity.
Personally, in most cases I'd use an Autarch or Farseer over most of the named characters in the codex, however there are times that I will use Yriel, who is probably the only named character I'd enjoy using. I don't see the others as justifiable with the increased point costs; more units on the table will usually win you more games than an extra psychic power per turn.
I have been running with no Psyker or Aur. Jain Zar is my bet for my current army. Got a turney this weekend at 1500 pts.
we wills eee how it wirks.
Eldrad is one of my favorite Special characters, if he is with a warlock unit he is unstoppable, or at least havnt had anyone take out the whole squad yet, even 20 khorne beserkers have trouble.
otherwise my next favorite is Jain Zar, str 7 PW on the charge is just annoying, especialy since as a banshee having I10 with furious charge is awsome (does she get the bonus after I goes up to 10 or before?)
Otherwise i just go with the normal characters..
Though i have used Yreil, he just dies to quickly for some reason, he has never survided past turn 4 no matter how hard i tried.
I was in a hurry when I posted. I was doing homework with my kid. Sorry I did not proof!
I was going to put my army list here. But I realised there is a army list forum so I will drop it there.
