    This is a Space Marines character I came up with. I want to get some opinions, is he too good, too expensive, too cheap, etc. I'll write the fluff eventually. (or as this guy on swg said "adventually". don't ya love it when people make up words?)

    Force Commander Dante Gage

    Points WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
    300 6 0 4/6 4 3 6 6 10 2+/5+

    Equipment terminator armour (bonuses included above), Birth & death, Phoenix Emblem,

    Birth and Death: Two razor sharp power swords, treat as strength 6 lightning claws.

    Pheonix Emblem: A potent artifact. After losing it's last wound, place the model on it's side. At the beginning of the next turn roll a d6, on a 4+ It is placed back up with 1 wound.

    That str.6 sounded a bit high..
    How did you get that? Equipment?
    The points sound high enough for me, but personally I feel there is something wrong...

    BS 0????????

    Who ever heard of a Space Marine who can't shoot?

    As for that special rule I think it sounds a bit too much... 3 wounds + a 4+ extra save in next turn? I dunno... 6 attacks seems a bit much too...

    Both the attacks and the initiative sound a bit big...
    And 6 str. in addition to that...
    Better lower it a bit...

    Well I gave him BS 0 because he doesn't have a gu nanyway, and he's a special character, so you can't change him. anyway revise the iniative to 5, attacks to 5, and lower the points cost. Also, his save agasint dying isn't even as good as the chaos "feel no pain" rule. I don't think he's any worse than a tooled up gk gm.

    are the attacks already worked out for the 2 weapons? having ini 5 is ok. and make sure that he can be auto killed and not have the re-roll id be ok with that.

    Maybe 5+ for the phoenix emblem. 4+ reminds me too much of the necrons

    Ok here's the revised versiona notice the only change from a regular Force Commander's stats are the -1 bs +1 ws. aside from that all he has is wargear.

    Force Commander Dante Gage

    Points WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
    250 6 4 4 4 3 5 5 10 2+/5+

    Equipment terminator armour (bonuses included above), Birth & death, Phoenix Emblem, armor-mounted missile launcher

    Birth and Death: Two razor sharp power swords, treat as strength 6 lightning claws, allows one reroll of a failed hit.

    Pheonix Emblem: A potent artifact. After losing it's last wound, place the model on it's side. At the beginning of the next turn roll a d6, on a 4+ It is placed back up with 1 wound. Not effective if killed by a double strength hit.

    Armor-mounted missile launcher: A rocket launcher mounted on his armor, same as normal missile launcher, but master-crafted and in addition to his two hand weapons.

    There you go. He's now toned down a bit. He would be deadly in big fights.
    You got to think of a name? Dante does sound good though for him. Hmmm, how about Virgil? :lol: Does anyone even get that?
