Darrell has a look in to who’s best to attack first in close combat, and if it’s better to kill the unit or the character who’s along with them.
Mephestion has 5 wounds(and he goes first against the Ctan), Dante, Calgar and Lysander all have 4, so you really want to weaken them before a charge, even with a big nasty like Nightbringer, as there’s a good chance they might actually do enough damage back to win the combat,- even Captain Sicarius can use his special attack and oneshot the Ctan on a 6- and if you lose the combat you have to take more saves, and considering you’re taking probably 4 to 6 attacks from the terminators that are left plus anything up to 5 or 6 from Calgar depending on who charges, you may want to reconsider charging the high order marines at all, or at very least bring a squad of wraiths or something along with.
The general principle though is sound, if you’ve got a choice of spamming wounds onto a unit or trying to take down that super hard character with them, sometimes the unit is the best option (particularly if the opponent’s unit is fearless).
