For making special characters (Chapter Master, Company Commanders, Librarians, Chaplians, ect.) with player created Trait Chapters, is there any limitations placed on what u can add as long as it isn't overpowered. Also can custom weapons (ex. along the lines of what Tigurius gains from Tigurius' Rod) or special rules be given to player created special characters?
Well, you can't go creating your own characters/rules and expect them to be allowed in a tournament. However, in friendly games, if your opponent agrees, you're allowed to use non-offical rules.Originally Posted by Spector
To add to firedrake's comment, I would also post it in the rules developement portion of this forum to make sure it isnt to overpowered so your friend will still have fun with it.
I hate it when people make over powered special characters and think they are the coolest thing ever. Some kid I was playing made this eldar farseer that started with 3+D6 wounds and gained a wound every turn for 1000pts. Needless to say the kid had issues... But if you make a balanced character that fits in with the theme of your army and has a good background story I think it would be fun to play with.

Its frustrating because I'm looking at making a second founding chapter of the Ultramarines. I don't see the harm in making a Chapter Master who is superior to a normal Commander/Master (by giving my CM/his honor guard the ability to pass any morale/pinning checks he has to take, which he would pass 99% of the time with leadership 10 anyways) while is is still vastly inferior to Calgar and some of the other accepted Chapter Masters/special characters.
I don't bother with making up different rules for special characters in my army. I just make a character in accordance with the Codex, and make up some good history for him, maybe master craft a weapon for fluff, and voila! 'Special' Character!
I agree - there's no need to make him 'better' than the ordinary character of the same sort. Just give him some unusual equipment - like adamantium cloak - and claim that he is so tough that he fights on even with wounds that would kill an ordinary marine etc.
