Consul is a fast constructor that can assist, repair or build wherever you currently need it. It is mainly used for laying minefields, repairing fighting troops and building light defenses and assault units on the front. It gives a great advantage over your opponent who only uses labs, as he cannot deliver his forces that quick to the frontline. Build few nano-towers next to it and set it to build a queue of a certain unit, then click REPEAT. This way it will keep making those units until ordered to stop. Most importantly it can construct Recluses, Mavericks, and Jethros for AA support.
