Eldar and Chaos. Contrary to what everyone seems to think the Avatar is far
from useless. Although I probably wouldn't pay much for him, it's all in
the placement. My Avater has killed a number of enemy models, averaging 1
or 2 per game. He's captured a number of objectives; usually 1 per 3 games
with supporting units, but sometimes all by his lonesome. So, if your
beastman champion always dies, then place your beastmen so charging blindly
forward is desirable (or take minotaurs - my personal suggestion). I know a
number of Ork players (including me when I had an Ork army) who throw their
Goff Nobz in battlewagons and charge across the board while they leave the
boyz mob on autopilot. You may screw up a few times, but it IS a workable
