This question specifically came up when I wanted to cast the first spell in the Beast Lore (can't remember the name). I wanted to cast it on a Temple Guard Revered Guardian, but my friend said he wasn't considered actually considered a character. A Character would be like another hero unit. I thought it just meant it was casted on one specific model.
We are both new to the game and couldn't really figure out who was right by looking hrough the rules. So we just rolled off and kept going. But if someone could answer this and give me a page location if possible...
Characters are essentially Lords or Heroes. (page 72, little rule book)
Unit Champions (page 81) are not characters, however they are able to use some of the rules which otherwise apply only to characters.
The spell to which you are referring, 'The Bears Anger', cannot be cast on unit champions, other command models, or anything that is not a lord or hero obeying the other restrictions of the spell.
When life gives you lemons, beat it over the head and take its wallet.
Emperors Children: 66/27/19
Imperial Guard: 71/27/10
Space Marines: 9/17/2
High Elves: 35/27/6
In referencing Empire Warrior priests, it does say that you can target unit champions with some prayers. I say this just to illustrate that there is a distinction between characters and unit champs.
