This - http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/pdf/culln.pdf - Is what I think a Grandmaster should be: Expensive and elite. IMMUNE TO INSTANT DEATH!
Bump up the points a little and give him Grey Knight special rules, NFW, and there, done.
He's not bad, but I'd rather take a regular Grandmaster over him. While Eternal Warrior is great, he lacks the force weapon that our GKGM has as well as the extras (Aegis, Shrouding, etc.). Our GM also has access to some nice wargear (incinerators, sacred incense, psychic hoods) which is pretty cool.
Actually Culln is more similar to Vulkan, only I like Vulkan better due to his chapter tactics.

GW only gives eternal warrior when the character has a crappy retinue or no retinue at all. but i think they should add adamantine mantle back as an upgrade for the grand master and inquisitor lord for35 pts but make it so only one guy can get it in your army. There nothing special about that character in the link but i do think that our main HQ should have a BS of 6 just like the rest of the SM and other side chapters leaders have.
Actually, with few exceptions, only named characters get Eternal Warrior. The GM -- while a total badass (or at least a supposed total badass) -- is not a specific individual.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

As he mentions. I think that's spot on for a typical day-to-day GM. Now, what a Special Grand Master character that players would be willing to often in 1500+ games?...While Eternal Warrior is great, he lacks the force weapon that our GKGM has as well as the extras (Aegis, Shrouding, etc.).
Only two space marines are equiped with eternal warrior Calgar(who no one that ive played in tourments but me uses) and Lysander( good character only few play his chapter that i know)
Eternal warrior dosent make that character impossible to kill snipers can kill most all characters with eternal warrior. For nids theres Genestealers overwelming inv. rending save. Greyknight kill easily with grandmaster. Necrons warsycth.
If your fighting someone who likes characters with eternal warrior or is a "noob" that wants a character with easy win after that character takes a few inv.saves they usally die no issue run better army list. Make the army list anti- whatever army your fighting. Some people wont do this but i think its just plan old smarts.
Edit: Good Retinue are better than Eternal warrior IMO with calgar ive ran the box set he comes in his retinue gets just as many wounds as him and kills more when fighting massive troops.

Also, if this "bad player" decides to run with a character with eternal warrior there are many things as i mentioned above that own these characters with eternal warrior that cost a fraction of the points.
