    What characters have been left out?

    Precisely what the title says: what special characters have been left out of the various Codexes as the versions of 40K have come and gone?

    The Grand Necromagus of the LO Codex: Necromancers Design Team.

    The Supreme Lance Leader of the Codex: Wasters Design Team.

    Imperial Guard: Captain Al'Rahim (sp?) of Tallarn, someone from Valhalla, Nork Deddog

    Orks: Makiri (with his 2+ impervious, invulnerable, unnegatable save!)

    Not sure about any others, sorry.

    Chaplain Xavier of the Salamanders, and Captain Cortez of the Crimson Fists both used to be in Codex: Space Marines. Also, the Emperor's Champion used to be avaliable to all Codex Chapters, but is not anymore.

    Wow seriously? I thought any army could take an Emperor's Champion, but only the BT were as devoted to the ideal.

    Also uhh... Crap I forgot his name... he's the Imperial Guard general that conquered a thousand worlds or something like that? Oh yeah Lord Solar Machairus(sp?).

    Space Wolves have lost quite a few.

    I don't have the codex in front of me but there used to be at least three more SCs.

    One Wolfguard that was stronger than others, could throw grenades further (2nd ed rules) one other who could reroll when shooting and off-course Bjorn The Fellhanded who is still mentioned in the current codex as the oldest of all venerable dreads. In the 2nd ed codex he was a special character.
    I almost forgot the special rune priest with the raven on his arm... (edit) Njal Stormcaller offcourse! how could I forget!

    So thats four lost space wolves. I for one miss them all...

    (edit) there is also an ooold model for Leman Russ, so far as I know the only Primarch available as a model...

    The Rune Priest with the cyber raven would be Njal Stormcaller. Do they still have Ragnar Blackmane? I've heard nothing about him for a long while, outside the BL.

    And the BA, you've still got Dante, Tycho and Mephiston, but what about Apothecary Corbulu (or something like that)?

    One of the Imperial Guard characters I miss the most in the new codex is Lord Solar Macharius. He is one of the coolest characters in the stories in my opinion. Based almost entirely on Alexander the Great.

    Yeah, I also miss Makari the Gretchin. Too bad they removed Ghazghkull's sidekick...

    I believe Lemartes is still in production: I recieved a White Dwarf with him enclosed. On second thought, GW might be getting rid of old (possibly OOP) models. Tycho did die on Armageddon, but I think you can still use him. For now...

    Apothecary Corbulo is still in the current (3rd Ed.) Blood Angels Codex, and I believe there is (or was, at least) a model specifically for him. Again, on second thought, maybe the picture in the Codex is a conversion. I don't know. But he still has rules.

    Yup, the Emperor's Champion is no longer in Codex Space Marines (4th Ed.). I never really used one (Blood Angels Chaplains are oh so much better), but I suppose it would have been cool to do so. In the new Black templars Codex, I think you buy vows as part of his wargear, and since Chapters from Codex: Space Marines are not supposed to be too extreme, thus, no Champion.
