    Strongest/toughtest model for its size?

    The problem with my question is that 'str' and 'toughness' are stats
    What I have noticed is that tougher models are usually bigger. A Dreadnought is bigger than a Terminator which is bigger than a normal Marine.
    But skill/magic/technology should make a soldier relatively tougher for its size. The Tau weaponry tends to be better than Imperial weaponry.

    So, which model is toughest relative to its size. Or, better way of asking, what's the 'toughest' model that relatively small?


    edit: shoot. Meant to be in 40k General Discussion.
    Until I'm PM'd with better ideas, I suggest that this is the best pro-active transhumanist charity opportunity for this decade.
    Alternatively, for those with mechanical talent and ideas.
    My goal, to get us up a level. How? My suggestion, help with the ratcheting there.

    The Watcher/Lion Helm bearer is both small and invincible, so I think he runs away with it.

    By this reasoning the hamadrya and choosers of the slain give the watcher a run for his money.

    Ratlyns from ig codex. Great save, tiny targets and can kill anything with their shooting.

    Rippers are smaller than ratlings but enough of them will kill everything on andconvert a planet into a barren husk. How can you match that?

    1000 year-old lords of the walking dead? Chosen avatars of the dark gods leading horrible creatures from another dimension? Ancient members of the civilization who created the very world upon which we wage our wars? Bah! We're skittish mutant rats. We've got a bell. And we're going to ring it till your ears hurt bleed. Bitches.

    Yeah, that seems to be a real leader right now. Lacking invul and super-duper shooting, but it's way up there.

    Squat Ancestor lord....last published stats...

    S5 (with power fists, force weapons, etc available), T6, Exo-Armor (so terminator equivalent) and psychic powers that make him tougher. And they're smaller than a marine.
    Occasionally accused of being helpful and constructive.
    One ring Book to rule them all, one ring place to find them, One ring Codex to bring them all, and in the Darkness future bind them. Time for the unified Marine Codex.

    Old metal tomb spyder, an mc with shooting, tough, good save, can nullifiy psy powers(now they can) repair vehicles and shoot plus small enough to get cover in most cases and strong enough to kill a Titan. Oh they can also boost the numbers in an other unit all for dirt cheap(<100pts).

    Archon with shadow field. One of the few models that can stare down a tau gunline and escape free of injury.

    What is the strongest/toughest 'man-sized' character that is allowed to take a shadow field?
