I am thinking of using one but would like to know what people's experience has been with him. He is 60 points and could potentially be a character killer at the right time, has anyone had success with him or had used him but never really got anything out of it?
Another question about changeling... is it 60 points total or i need to "upgrade" from a standard horror first so total = 72? thanks

Yes total 72, as he can not be deployed in secret the enemy just knows not to put any characters agasinst him. This is as opposed of the empre magic item which is secret so you never know which emipre hero is carrying it.
I use him! He's hilarious. My Changeling looks like a normal horror, but painted silver (like a mirror) and nobody expects it. He's beaten Ogre Tyrants to death on his own (copies their strength n WS but not initiative!) crushed a high elf (he was on a dragon, used the dragon's stats on the elf) and Headbutted a Giant to the ground (GW says that the Changeling uses the Giant's special attacks if they meet in combat)
sod the 60 points, he's damn funny
He is definitely a lot of fun. I am in the process of converting it so an empire guy is crawling out of a horrors mouth. It is tough for people who expect it but there is always a situation where they either don't expect it or you can force the target to go there.
I tried him a couple of times, but think I will use the points elsewhere. It's so situational, and I couldn't get him in combat with the right guy.
I think he'd do well in a big block of Horrors, say 30, who just sits back, and blasts away at the enemy. The Changeling will make the unit even harder to kill, since the enemy can't include it's big characters, like the Dragons, or they'll just die.
In my army though, I used 20 with him, but didn't really have a dominate magic phase, being mostly Khorne. Because of this, I has to move TO the enemy anyway, so the Changeling was less than effective.
Godd luck with him though!
