so look I'm new but I feel way more confident in my opinion since hearing myomer say the exact thing I've been thinking on mayacast's last show.
his abilities tell me I should be aggressive and commit orders to him to go kill people. so I'm going to have a 30pt model get my precious regular orders to move up and gank people from excellent positions.
but if he's killing some basic front line LI or MI they will probably be BS 12, so hitting him on 15s while he's hitting them on 16s. great dice are in his favour but if they succeed which will happen quite often he disappears in a puff of smoke with ghulam armour. what a chump? now you've spent a lot of orders and points on a model that got to where he is using super jump so maybe its hard for a doctor to go get to him because your doctor doesn't have super jump. sure if you can find lots of shock weapons you'll get arm3 but that's less often.
I mean I'm not a fan of the zhayedan but even it is better because when it shoots it takes cover but ignores the enemy cover. that's a stat swing in your favour on top of active turn dice benefit which means that the unlucky failure will happen less often.
so okay the khawarij is easier to kill, harder to keep alive while ramboing, and has the most minor defensive buff in the game but is all that worth super jump, bs13 (rare in haqq) and PH13 (rare also).
meh... +1bs? the zhayedan gets marksmanship so its be 15 regularly. better again. the govad that everyone talks badly about is 29pts with the HMG so you get a better weapon (if you prefer the HMG to the spitfire which is personal taste), better armour, better BS vs camo, a breaker pistol all for cheaper so its less points invested in the guy and when he does go down he's probably easy for a ghulam doctor to get to.
so how would I buff it? frankly I think buffing it would be unfair because its stats are lovely but too expensive. 22pts for the shotgun version, 25 for the rifle (I mean, if that's the cost of a lasik, why on earth would you pay MORE for a kawarij? is it 5pts better than a lasik?) 25 for the doctor (it has a shotgun only so cheap) and 27 for the spitfire.
no stat changes, just less investment so I can support the glass cannon with other models.
though if I really had to buff it to make it worth the points it curently has then I would give it hyperdynamics and automedkit.
