Hmmmm.... What is supposed to be the vast majority of the Imperium's armed
might, and to be used "like a sledgehammer" to quote the fluff, and the
unanimous verdict of the players is that you should never include any of
them in your army. There's just *got* to be something wrong here!

Anyone tried loading up their tactical stands with commisars? These SS looking
maniacs are 6 points a pop, but all those saves might be good for something.
