We all know that, as far as leadership purposes go, an Elector Count is really the only choice for an empire army to work effectively.
Considering there are only ten of them in the old world (if I'm not mistaken), I don't quite feel comfortable taking one of them to lead my Empire army. I feel as if I'm doing something wrong as far as the background goes.
For example, in 40k, I can just create my own chapter or minor craftworld, and be able to take a chapter master or farseer with absolutely no problems. Likewise with something like, say, Fantasy orcs; there's hundreds if not more different clans in the world, and just outright creating one with it's own warboss is no problem.
However, in the case of the Empire, there's really only 10 choices as far as colour-schemes go (different takes on which aside), and if I want to take something other than a pure state army, I feel as if I'm being robbed of one of my best Lord units. In all honesty, it feels more or less like a special character than a basic lord.
Then again, I could just do as the alternate list appendix at the end of the army book says and just rename him (and all the magic items) something less empire-centric.
-As an aside, what about White Wolf knights in non-middenland armies? Would I be able to have leeway with that and convert them to carry, say, bastard-swords or something?
I kind of understand you, and once faced the same problem. I simply gave mine its own name, and gave him an unusual choice of items and equipment, perhaps making him even more un-fluffy, but he didn't feel as much as an Elector Count, but infact an Army General. To cap his un-fluffiness off, he is riding a Griffon. :p
I think I may just do that.
Still, I originally wanted a Hochland or Middenland based army, but it wouldn't feel quite right not using the rules for Aldebrand Ludenhof, or Boris Todbringer.
Though, is there a list of currently-ruling elector counts anywhere?
When writing my list - i write my elector count's name - and in brackets - elector count. I just call him my 'general' - or, by his name.
the rules for the elector count's is fairly well to use for a burgomeister or important general... just don't give him a griffon and not to good magical equipment
You could say there from a different time period or just call them something else.
By day he fought with sword and shield.....
By night he fought with pen and parchment.....
He was....The Warrior Poet.......

Do you have uber micro...????
When I created my army i didnĀ“t think of him as a "Elector count", it was just a name for that kind of Lord, like Elven Prince, Mage Lord, ect.
I created my own historie about him and his equipment, to fit my converted Lord.
Cool, do you think you could post the history?Originally Posted by The Beast Lord
Have any of you guys heard of Arch-lector? He is kinda like a captain and warrior priest in one... if you don't like elector counts or wizard lords, you should try him out. His rules are in a WD magizine 3 or 4 months back though. Just in case you don't really wanna go for the elector..... but hey
