Not sure if discussed but I noticed you can have a phobos librarian with a -2 to being hit and -1 to being wounded.

 

Stealth Adept + Precognition from ultramarines gives him -2 to being hit (plus a 5++)

The ghostweave mantle/cloak (whatever it is) gives -1 to wound against him which is pretty good too.

Put him in some cover, going terrain to terrain would also mean he would have +2 to his save as well because of his camo cloak.

 

Good distraction carnifex? I mean, as long as you keep precog up you are a nightmare to hit and he could just go on a tear about enemy units with fair impunity (even guardsmen firing lines would struggle, 6s to hit and 6s to wound from the rank and file lasguns).

Decent character killer? Certainly not a DPS beast but a force sword isn't something you can ignore.

I Chapter Master 454, Chapter Master of the Angels of Justice, Warboss of WAAAGH Gubskul, Commander of a Catachan Regiment, Phaeron of a Tomb World, Shas'O to a Cadre and Princeps of a lance of House Taranis hereby pledge that I will not take up any further models til all other prior have been fully built and painted to tabletop standards. There is no time limit for this task, there is no deadline. My oath is to solemnly complete the armies I have now, to see it that they can have their glory. Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

Tough to hit true (flamers and similar will bypass this)... However, may be lacking in punch.

Cool idea, but definitely just a distraction. At only 4 S4 attacks, he's not going to kill much. If he runs into anything with an invuln and a powered weapon of its own, he's done. He can chop through backfield fire support, so long as he doesn't eat lascannon or melta shots on the way in.

All the time he's casting precognition he's not buffing units or throwing out mortal wounds, to be honest if someone brought one along I'd ignore him until he was close enough to worry about.
