Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wondering if someone can give a me good etheral army list because i need to know what to use to protect me etheral
The overall response you will get from the general community is do not use Ethereals. While the bonus is nice when they are alive, once they are dead you run into the more then likely problem of losing many of your units to failed morale rolls.
However, there are a few ways to protect your ethereal. First, put them in a full honour guard squad with maxxed shield drones for both your Shas'ui and your Ethereal. Keep in mind that any experienced player will probably drill this squad until they are dead. If they have ordnance this will be pretty quick. Also, with the new wound allocation rules, there is a very good chance they can kill your ethereal without having to kill the full squad.
You can also run him solo with his shield drones. Pack him in a devilfish attached to an under strength fire warrior squad of 9 models. The DF will soak up some initial shots and once it's down, the dire warriors can soak up a few more. Once you take losses from the FW, you can remove the Ethereal from that squad and find a higher numbered squad to attach it to.
This can work for you if you have rank and file fire teams all in close proximity. I still would not recommend it. Of course the best way to know if it works or not is to play it until you make up your own mind about them.
For me, I would never field an Ethereal in a serious game or tournament. I have played with them just for giggles and to watch my opponents drool and bend over backwards trying to get to him to kill him.

Thanks for the info and i believe i have all ill need to protect my etheral (in my army i have 4 FW squads)
I agree with haddatt but remember the new ways saves are distributed, etherials are more vunrable tan ever even with a honour guard squad.
