Are you sure... just remind yourself what has been done by Etherals at Damocles Gulf when they left their people (including Farsigh).

Breachers can put the hurt on heavy targets a lot better than boys can. We are down only one toughness but have a better save before invulnerable. Our ethereal gives far more versitile bonuses too.

Maybe when we get out own Strats will bring them out again to justify getting extra CP's, in tournaments that require a battalion, bringing 3*5 strike teams is probably a better option.
And this is why I decided to build my lists full of Breachers on foot, to walk valiantly into the fray, get shot in the face (yay), or blast the enemy to ashes (yay too).
