Hmm... Im In a bit of a tricky situation here. Im deeply considering painting my recently collected marines in the scheme of the steel bretheren. Only recently have I realised that all of the special characters already have other legions/warbands. WHY!?
I am currently ...*Turns Page*... Flicking through my codex and am ... *GHASP*... OMG!!!! Look at Kharns stats! Look at is rules! Look at... Oh... hes a world eater. Damn.
Brain Wave... Could I posibly have the slightest chance of even just maybe succeding at designing my own special character and giving it Kharns rules? Plz?
SOME TIME LATER
Our hero emerges, brain battered and body scared, but drawing: Comlete.
Ok, heres my plan. My Kharn impersonator will take the following apperance *Looks at drawi- Scribble*. A helmet with huge horns, the one on the CSM accesory sprue, with the torso on the same sprue. His legs will be from the possesed sprue (currently undecided on which). He will have a plasma pistol, and in the other hand will hold the loyalist champion power sword, hoisted high above his head, this will have the same rules as gore child (Obviously). I also want to give him an iron halo like hurons. Ive also just managed to order a 2nd edition chaos back-pack off the web too.
As for the paint scheme, the normal Steel Bretheren have silver armour and a red insignia. For my character, I want to reverse this... so that he has deep crimson armour and a silver crest.
As for the fluff... god knows. I dont want him to be mindlessly violent, so will have to think of some reason for him to have the Betrayer Rule. Other than that I think im ready to go =]
One question... When I go ahead with this, do you think people will let me use this in games? I dont want to go through all this hastle and just end up with some neat looking champion barely worth 45 points.
Ill post some pics when I've built it!
You can use the "Counts As" rule. Since it's a converted model it technically wouldn't even be valid as a playable piece without that rule. As long as you don't field the actual Kharn model, yeah you should be fine. Just make sure you let the opponent know ahead of time what the model Counts As.
Looking forward to piccies!
Wargamer Haven, my little cyberspace blogspot.
Whoa! Quick Response!
Yeah, The only reason I'm doing this conversion is because the Kharn model itself doesnt fit in with the fluff of my army, so I wont be fielding him aswell. Infact, the only way I can even fit this model into my army is by dropping one of my (Uncollected) lash princes, so I'll be damned if im gonna drop my other one to take kharn himself.
Thanks for clarifying I can use it in games. Much apricciated
EDIT: Oh yh, about the piccies. I've got the Head, Torso Front & Plasma Pistol, and ordered the rest literaly right now. Unfortunatley, Im going on holiday (To The MALDIVES!) On wednesday, so if the parts I ordered dont arive by then... Well you'll be waiting for quite a while (2 weeks).

Aslong as your counts-as model is WYSIWYG and that you point out that it's Khârns lessly known - but equally capable - long lost relative I don't think anyone would mind. I certainly wouldn't. Cool conversions are to be encouraged!
Heres Piccies, Enjoy =] I'm going on holiday tommorow for 2 weeks so unless you post literaly right now I wont be able to reply for quite a while. But by any means, Dont stop posting! I want to hear all of your comments =]
Lol Picture 4 Look Behind You! =]
It just occured to me how easy this is to do. My friend wants to do the same thing with Arihman, so he just took the banner pole from a CSM squad and put a personal Icon ontop of it. Viola, Instant Black Staff Of Arihman. ofcourse, we dont call It the black staff, Just like my Kharn Dudes gorechild isnt a gorechild... Were trying to think up names for our characters and weps.
Any fluff help will be appriciated =] We were contemplating some sort of shadow sword for my "counts as" Kharn. Maybe?

An iron halo on a CSM?
That's like the antifluff!
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
why can't you use the model of the characters? Just paint it up in your legions color and say this is magnus the brutal killer which uses the kharne rules?
I shall call him Squishy, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy.
I Hate Metal Models
Its Funner This Way!
My Charactrr fits my fluff much more with this model
I cant be bothered to spend forever and a day filling khorne icons off of kharn just to end up wiht something that looks like a loyalist with a big axe and funny ears.
But Thats just me... And Im Strange =]
I like it.
On the using in games, you can use it in friendly games, provided you get your opponent's permission, but you wont be able 2 use it in tournaments.
But luv da piccies
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
