The last of the six heroes available to play in Last Stand, the Lord General wasn’t included until Dawn of War 2: Retribution. Overall I’d classify him more towards the support hero role and in some senses, in the same vein as the Hive Tyrant. The Lord General’s prowess will largely come from his minions and can be a little underpowered until you unlock the guardsmen (first set of minions) at level 5. He has access to a variety of weaponry, allowing you to better determine his damage dealing capacity. He can opt in for melee, grab a flamer for AoE damage or a sniper rifle that deals high damage to a single target (as well as other weapons)
