    I've been meaning to ask, who or whom was Lord Macharius. Was he a general. And yes i know i'm being ignorant and the beginning of my log in name is the same but i've always wondered and ain't found any fluff on the guy.

    Ok, here&#39;s how I saw it. Macharius was really awesome stats and abilities wise, but DAMN that model sucked. It didn&#39;t fit in with any model from any IG army made. It just looked terrible to me... Heh.

    I&#39;d think there&#39;s plenty of fluff info in the older Guard codices... Got them both, but as I never bother with special characters and the fluff sections I have no idea what&#39;s there.

    Well, the point is moot isn&#39;t it? Mackie isn&#39;t in the current codex, right?

    And that whole "Goes first" thing is one reason for ME not to include him.

    The same reason for which I never play with star players in Blood Bowl. I think they ruin the feel of "my team" or "my army"... There&#39;s a gazillion other players out ther with a Lord Solar Macharius in their army, why should I have one as well? It&#39;s silly. I never liked special characters much.

    I wish there was some sort of "heroic character generation system" in 40k though. Like VDR, sort of. That would be immensely cool - to be able to make a _real commander for your army.

    "Macharius was the commander of the whole imperial guard im the early 40ish mellinium."

    Wrong. He was appointed as a Warmaster, aka &#39;Lord Solar&#39;, who led a major crusade. It during the forty-first millennium.

    Did you even read that link you posted
    IG since &#39;95.
