    Mazdamundi

    Ok. It says that if you have your opponents permission (I have) that you may create your own special characters. Can somebody please help me make fair and balanced rules for this venerable slann who is described as:

    "No wizard alive in the world can match his powers of the magical arts..."

    I'd say pretty simmilar to Venerable Lord Kroak but on a stegadon + a few nasty items (maybe his skink has 2 attacks or something) I'd say about 1500 points. What do you think?

    Lol, Omg this would make my army 5.5k points with 3 Slaan..... Lol.

    You probably want to change that statement to "No Being alive can match him.. " or else the Tomb Kings and Vamp counts will feel left out

    To keep it balanced think of some disadvantages he may aswell, low save just to counter act his effectiveness of magic use.

    aaaawww...... your no fun.... high save is what makes kroak so cool.... when I said fair and balanced you must kno whtat I really meant cheesy super killing machine.

    But I guess that kroak and nagash don't count as alive so he can't be that good.... but then again.... he'd have to be better than any 2nd generation slann and Teclis.

    There actually ARE rules for him, but don't ask me where they're from. In Army Builder (the 3rd party program, NOT the GW one), they include Mazamundi. He's like 900-something points, rides a Stegadon, and REQUIRES two units of Temple Guard. He also has like four unique spells. Dunno if it's legal to post the actual stats and rules and whatnot here, though. And like I said, I don't know where these rules are from. Hell, chances are they're from a previous edition and aren't exactly balanced anymore.

    I can't see how it could be balanced if he's 300 cheaper than Kroak and in fluff he is better.

    Please post it because:

    a) it is not the current rules (there are no current rules)
    b) if a mod thinks it infringes copyright he/she can delete the content of the post.

    Oh, ok, sorry. I just assumed.... Can you tell me what issue of white dwarf it is, i'm in Australia.

    Was there ever a model for him? Sorry, I wouldn't know, I came into the hobby 4 years ago when we and my other army bretonnia were without an armybook or special characters.

    EDIT: I just made some experimental rules, please feel more than free to change them drastically, I assume they are very unbalanced.

    Lizardmen Army List:

    Lord, 2 Heroes, Rare: Lord Mazdamundi ----- 1500

    M WS BS S T W I A LD
    4 5 3 4 6 8 3 3i 9

    Unit Strength 5

    Stegadon:
    M WS BS S T W I A LD
    6 3 0 5 6 5 2 4 5

    Magic Items:

    Cobra Mace of Mazdamundi
    (If the bearer is attacked with a magic weapon roll 1 D6 once before working out the attacks (once per turn). On a score of 5+ the blow is parried by the mace and the enemy’s magic weapon is destroyed)

    Amulet of Hexoatl
    (Magic Resistance (2) and adds one to the dispel dice pool of the Lizardmen player, in addition, any attacks made by magical weapons against Mazdamundi are at -1 to wound.

    Blessed Crown of Eternity
    (Adds one to the power dice pool of the Lizardmen player)

    Sacred Plaque of the Old Ones
    (Adds one to Mazdamundi Initiative and weapon skill values. (already included)

    Special Rules:
    Aura of Domination:
    (Anyone attempting to charge at Mazdamundi must roll a leadership test at -2, In addition, Anyone Mazdamundi Charges must take an immediate panic test.)

    Shield of the Old Ones (see Kroak)
    First Generation Spawning (see Kroak)
    Ruination of Cities (see Kroak)
    Drain Magic (see Kroak)

    Mazdamundi must always be your army General. In order to field Mazdamundi you must have at least one unit of Temple Guard in your army and you may Never take an Oldblood.

    since he is such a good wizard, +3 to cast spells? it would be very costly in pts to add the skil though. it'd be fun though....

    If you just want to see how it plays out, and you want a powerful slann on a stegadon. Why not just take kroak, throw him on the back of your stegadons howdah, add the points of them together, make themt ake up the defined slots, and play him out? Either way, neither of them will be tourny legal, so theres really no difference.

    He&#39;s coming for you...
