Just curious about one thing. How would you react if a friend of yours comes and asks for a game and he says he will want to try out a special character he has made up himself? Would it be okay if he showed the rules and you admitted it was a decent build and okay points value?
In the poll, let's assume you think it's not a uber character but with well written fluff and stuff.
Personally, I would have let him use it.
5000p. High Elves
I'd let them use it, and see how it worked.
As an amateur Games Developer (I in no way work for GW), I understand how much things like that have to be playtested. So I'd discuss said character with my opponent after the game.
As you said, it is not uber powerful and has decent fluff.
Why not let him give it a go?
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Of course you should let him test if it's not some monstrous character that's been made for the sole purpose of being unbeatable.
I would let him have a go. Only through playing with a character will he be able to know if it works, or if it is to powerful for example, and be able to change his stats/fluff. I'm all for a bit of variety!
Yes as long as the character wasnt some super insane unkillable deathmachine. Ifs its balanced no real problem. Though only if I knew the opponent.
If it was obviously broken and/or über, I'd recommend he tweak it first. Otherwise, why not?
sometimes I don't mind a challenge if I'm in the right mood.
but unless its unbeatable yeah, no point.
If it was someone I knew, not just a pick-up game, and it was fairly balanced, sure.
