This post is based on page 79 of the rulebook that came with the battle for skullpass set. It states that players can create their own special characters, i was wondering if they were reffering to a normal hero or lord with certain magic items which you field in almost every battle you play in or a character who you make from scratch
if it reffers to the latter than i would like to know if there are "official" rules as to how the point cost system works
Yes, what they mean there is that you can create your own character by converting a nice model and inventing a backstory, but not by inventing rules. You would have to use the rules for a standard character (or one of the Special Characters, I suppose) from your Army Book.
If you did want to create rules for your own character you would only be able to use it in friendlies with opponent's consent, but it would be fun inventing rules.
There isn't a set formula for the points cost system as there are too many factors involved to reliably get a points cost out of an equation. Whenever GW write a book, they give a model a rough points cost that feels right to them, then adjust it after lots of playtesting, which gives them an idea of whether the points cost is accurate or not.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
