I had a quick question... can I choose special characters from the SM codex such as Kayvaan Shrike, Captain Lysander, Tigurius, Cassius, Calgar, etc... without choosing the specified chapter?
I'm playing my own chapter with custom colors and custom traits... therefore I'm not exactly "Ultramarines" or "Raven Guard". In the codex it states, for example, "Kayvaan Shrike is a special character. He may be used in a Raven Guard army of at least 1,500 points as an HQ choice."
But since I'm obviously not Raven Guard... can I choose him? If no... then that means I cannot choose any special character because I'm not choosing a specific chapter?
Sorry for making it so long-winded.
Another question... rather than creating a new thread -
Melta-guns... can I fire a melta-gun only once per battle like the multi-melta, or do they have unlimited shots throughout the battle? Thanks.
? Multimelta fires as many shots as you want per game, where did you read that it has limited shots?
And no you cannot use special characters, you just stated the ruling. You must use an army consisting of 1500pts of raven guard. That means 1500, not 1000 pts of raven guard and 500 pts of demonhunters. It has to be 1500 of the army they specify so if you arent using that army you can't use them
I see about the chapter and multi-melta thing...
I think a games workshop employee told me that the combi-melta that my Master was equipped with could only fire once per battle... is this a combi-melta special rule or can the combi-melta fire more than once per battle as well?
Thanks for reassuring me on the chapter rules. That's kind of a bummer... what do I do to make a unit that is as powerful as one of those special characters then? Is it even possible? And is it a big enough drawback to creating my own chapter?
It's right in my codex concerning combi-meltas... one shot per battle.
