Strategy: Intended as a second encounter, Barachiel's Breath weaponry and high LS can be quite fearsome. In addition, the "Harbinger of Tragedy" trait makes it too dangerous to simply stay out of the beast's melee range and pepper it with fire-power. However, the massive size of it makes it an easy target, and its relatively low AP and lack of offensive AT powers ensure that once it is engaged in hand to hand with one or more EVAs, it should soon fall. In addition, its long and (comparative to its length) narrow body means that agile enough EVAs should be able to attack it away from the head, along the length of the body and tail, where it can't bring the breath weapon to bear without slowly manoeuvring it's head around to face them. A competent, tactical (or even just over-eager) squad of EVAs should make easy work of it, though they may be less willing to close to hand-to-hand after the lessons of Jegudiel, if you used him as the first encounter.

Scaling for Challenge: An immediate candidate is Multiple Weapons, to make use of Barachiel's decent WS and S stats. Alternatively, Detonation could do. Unfriendly Fire could make Harbinger of Tragedy all the more worrying, and Unreasonable Demands can also turn up the heat. It is not recommended to use both Detonation and Unreasonable Demands simultaneously, unless you REALLY hate your party.
