I was wondering in your opinion what is the best HQ choice thats including special characters.
an asdrubal vect looks good for any army

Vect is a huge point sink though...
The best HQ choices would be a Lord with either a retinue of incubi, a Lord on jetbike or skyboard (personally i use a jetbike Lord), or an Archite/Lelith with a retinue of wyches. All these variants have proven to be effective, it depends on your personal preferance which is better for you (and of course on your opponent's army).
I think that Archon w/ combat drugs, poisened blades and a splinter rifle works the best. If you're willing to pay the points, Incubi are awesome, but never take more than 5, they're to expensive.
Ehm...no shadow field? No weapon which ignores armour saves?I think that Archon w/ combat drugs, poisened blades and a splinter rifle works the best.
A typical Lord equipment is shadow field, drugs, splinter pistol, agonizer, hell mask
or shadow field, drugs, tormentor helm, punisher, hell mask
or SF, CD, power weapon, t-helm, haywires, reaver jetbike, hell mask.
Poisoned blades can be used in addition to the above equipment just for the case that you face daemons with inv saves or an avatar, but besides that a weapon which ignores armour saves is a must for an Archon.
Mine'd be a conflict between the Kroot Shaman Eldar and the Master Shaper. I like them both but I cant decide which I like the most.
I'd have to say Lelith Hesperax. She has all the things that a lord needs (except for combat drugs) and her retinue of wyches can choose which combat drug effects them. If you add up the stuff she has and put it on a normal archite the archite would be much more than only 90 points.
my favorite HQ is a Dracon or Archon (i actually prefer the Dracon) armed with Agonizer, combat drugs, splinter pistol, shadow field, and plasma grenades. The retinue i give it is 4 incubi, 2 warriors, and Drazhar works in very nicely too.
Vect is too expensive, and besides, i dont use the kabal of the black heart
Kruella is cool, but no shadow field, and besides, i dont use kabal of the flayed skull
Urien is very neat, but he's a bit too expensive and he's more situational
Decapatator is pretty cool (i actually took the time to make my own decapitator model, props to green stuff), but he's not great all the time either
lelith is by far the best special character i'd have to say, but i dont run a wych army either, so adios lelith.
