I was thinking about what type of special character I should invest in for my army. I have a Terminator Librarian, and The Emperors Champion, but I was wondering if anyone had anysuggestions for other Special Characters. If you do have some Ideas, please state why you think they'd be a good addition to my army. It's a well rounded army, not focussing on one style of play. Thanks.
Well if you have the Emperor's Champion then you play Black Templar and cannot use the other special characters. However if you DON'T play BT then certain special characters rock.
Lysander: TH/SS toting behemoth in close combat that is very tough to kill, makes everyone stubborn and improves squad accuracy
Vulkan: Good for burninating armies, makes Flamer weapons, Meltas and TH's all the more sweeter.
Pedro: Makes Sternguard scoring, very very nice if they are you cup of tea, Also makes units stubborn
Calgar: Another CC monster with a ranged weapon that munches Terms, expensive points-wise though.
Since you said your army is going to be well rounded i believe that Lysander suits your needs, He doesn't require a certain army set-up though he works very well with a unit of Terminators. Hopes that help.
Well first thing, the Emperor's Champion is a special character specific to the Black Templar army; you have to be playing BT to field the Emperor's Champion. Black Templars are also expressly forbidden from using psykers, and can't take Librarian's as an HQ. So if you're fielding the two of them together, unfortunately your army is illegal. If you let everyone know what codex you're using though, people can give you some suggestions on characters to get because BT and the vanilla space marines have different sets of special characters available to them.
He's not a big choice unlike most of the other Special Characters (I mean, a Librarian can lead your army well enough on his own, you don't really need a Chapter-specific Captain) and being able to choose which models are removed from the unit you're firing at can make you a true pain in your opponent's proverbial backside!
lucky for you ur playing a black templars army and that is what i have. chuck the librarian hes junk and not legal for a BT army. If you play a big enough game use High Marshal Helbrent. He whoops a$$ and can fight the best of them. if not have a good line of commanders and chaplains. i got a total of 7commanders and 2 chaplains. then i also have High marshal Helbrent and a Emperors champion. some of them are cheap for 500pts games and others are for 1000pts +.
keep in mind when making the rules up for them, what will there role be. i got some specialized and others more for a multi-role base. want anymore tips just let me know.
NO PITY! NO REMORSE! NO FEAR!

No the previous post is incorrect. You cannot combine special characters from the Newest space marine codex, with any in ANY of the previous space marine codecies in the same army. That is a ridiculous proposal. You cant have High marshal of Black templars, and the Blood angels Chaplain, and Cheif Librarian Tigeruis (i know spelling is wrong but cant remember the correct way) in the same army.
However there is a catch, in apocalypse you can do prettty much what ever youw ant wich is why i refuse to play it against anyone but a sporting opponent who has a list that actually makes some logical sence.

What I mean is that you can use the models, but not their profile. As an example, you can use the Azrael model for representing your ultramarine chapter master or captain, but you wont get the helmet bearer, his sword of secrets or his combi plasma special weapons or can use his profile instead.
