With the exception of my first match, my HQ has always been Shrike (I play RG so it made sense). The trouble is Shrike tends to overpower assault squads. Generally whatever I hit with his unit is dead on my first assault phase. The marines all look around at the fallen enemies and high-five each other a bit, then right around the time of my opponent's shooting phase half or more die.
Just wondering what other people prefer to take as their captains. I mean, I like Shrike, just wondering what else was out there.
Plan B? Does running away while blindly shooting behind you count?
