Welcome to Librarium Online!
im thinking of using a special charecter but which one im looking at shadowsun because she can still let me use kroot and vespids unlike farsight
We are the Ultramarines, the Sons of Guilliman. Whilst we draw breath, we stand. Whilst we stand, we fight. Whilst we fight, we prevail. Nothing shall stay our wrath.

I would just go for a XV8 commander and I would even advise avoiding all the special issue gear and weaponry, just take a Shas'El with helios or fireknife, they will be much more useful and cheaper with all the IC benefits.
Yes, the Tau special characters are very lacking in my opinion. With all of our technology, you would think that they would be able to realize that CC is an important part of the 41st millenium, and make a powerfist or something. I think GW should give us cooler Special characters, especially since Necrons are running around with star gods, and we have another person in a cooler crisis suit.
Its called imagination. If only we could imagine some sort of Tau embodiment of a god.
(Eldar, Chaos, Necron, seriously.)
A Tau God? Ha! The Auns laugh at you.:ninja:
Anyways, yeah, Shadowsun seems a bit too specialised. She's fairly hard to kill, yes, and she can pack a punch with tanks, but she'll definitley be getting the attention owed to her and will probably be killed rather quickly. I play a tank-hunty Commander (FB, PR, SG), which is similar to Shadowsun. Except he can Deepstrike and cost less. And I always expect him to die. Save your points and use them for battlesuits or a tooled Commander. I would much sooner take O'Shovah and field all those spiffy battlesuits he allows. Long story short, if you want Kroot and Vespid in successful armies, stay away from Special Characters.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
