    I'm in an escalation league and the guy in charge said that special characters are going to be illegal even for the higher point games which I think stinks. However, after comparing the characters in the IG codex and the Catachan codex, none of the characters in the IG codex have any mention of being special characters nor do they require consent to use them. For one thing Schaeffer's last chancers aren't a character per se but a unit. What do you all think? I'm just wondering if my logic makes sense or if there's something in the rules I've missed.

    Karnov let all of us fulfil our repressed dreams of being a fat Russian man running around in the great outdoors and getting shot at by weird stone heads and crap. You didn't have a repressed fantasy about doing such marvelous things? Well, I don't believe you . . . [djpretzel]

    as for the last chancers, they dont count as special characters and they have to have sheafer withthem so he cant be considered a special character. nor can gaunt for the same reason.

    specific ork clans(goffs) can be led by gazkul cuz hes just a miracle warbos and the other characters are leaders of specilised squads.

    eldar can be led by fenix lords. the other heroes might be questionable though.

    space marines and chaos may not be able 2 use ther characters, same as tau and d. e.

    nids have no special characters so thats a no brainer, same as necrons

    out of curiosity wer do u play?(u dont have 2 answer)

    The newer codex's do not require opponents permission to use characters, apparently they are completely balanced. Tau, Chaos, Nids, Necrons, IG are a few I can think of.

    However, if you are at some club and the guy specifically said no special characters then that is their house rule and choice, you will have to stick with that for any army.

    If they said no special characters, then they had one thing in mind alone: C'tan.

    Most people are so darned terrified of the C'tan that I've seen special characters banned at a lot of tournaments even though they are perfectly legal.

    Personally, I love C'tan. PLEASE. Take one. I've got an 8 lascannon army. Just let me see one of those poke it's head out.

    I Play at a hobby shop near where I live in KY, USA. I think I can argue into letting me use Schaeffer's Last chancers for the reasons stated above because it's more of a special unit.
