Q: I see lots of stuff in the forums about special, player-created characters, but in my book (Macragge rulebook) and my codexes (Space Marines, Dark Angels, Daemonhunters) I can't find any rules or guidelines defining how one could do this. Is it "legal" to create your own special character, or is this just a fluff/ok-with-my-buddies-in-pickup-games-but-forget-it-in-a-tournament thing?
Mostly people will name their HQs and possibly write fluff about them but conventionally they are still basic HQs with wargear.
Equally there are a number of special characters in most codecies, but if you create you own, it is strictly with chums and with their agreement. Be aware there is a system, which was part of the rules in the early versions, which equated characteristics to points, I suspect GW still use this as a guide
