Welcome to Librarium Online!
Here's my special character wich I will use in a friendly campaign we did with the lads for fluff and fun. I'm playing with a Sanctified chaos army and this character will be one of their revered champion.
Berann, Revered Champion of the Sanctified
+5 invulnerable save
Frag and krak grenades
Wind of Chaos
Bassarau is a mighty double-bladed spear, which is perfect for completing all sorts of swirling, whirlwind-alike attacks. To represent this, Berann has an extra D6 attacks in close combat. It also counts as a power weapon.
Sanctified armour is given to any champion of The Sanctified who proves himself loyal enough to their Master. To represent the aura it generates around Berann, he has +5 invulnerable save and his Toughness characteristics is increased by 1, though as the toughness bonus rom riding a bike, Berann's unmodified toughness is used for the purposes of determining instant death.

Hi, Looks good
the only thing is that the power looks a little strange, i think it has too many differsnt things to take into account there
I would looks through the codex and add/subtract points from him depending on other units who have the same thing eg. feel no pain - plague marines
That strange power is from the Witch hunters codex. I thought of changing it for Wind of Chaos? And that Bassarau is also a power weapon, forgot to mention it.
Yeah the power was from the Codex: Witch Hunters. I swapped it for the Wind of Chaos. And that Bassarau counts as a power weapon, like almost every character has one.
EDIT: Oops, I messed up. btw how do I delete a post?
I'm guessing he would be around 150-165 points
For T5 and Fnp.. that's insane - you couldn't instant kill him with even a lascannon!
I'd strongly suggest he have T4(5)
Points costs (without FNP) should be about 170-180 I reckon.
Also, booted to rules development.
What if I make his stats exactly the same like a normal chaos lord? and the toughness would be 4(5) and WS 6 since he's very skilled using the Bassarau
Just a quick tid bit on 4/5 toughness: Pretty much the only way you see special characters receiving any kind of toughness bonus is through a modified base of 4. Only princes receive a base toughness of 5.
What's the reason for having a 5S rather than a 4S? Just curious. Is that a base stat or modified? The base strength for chaos lords is '4'.
Having a 6WS seems in line with the current chaos lord, so it would fit right in with your character. Your explanation for the increased toughness works fine.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
That's pretty much it, I just can't figure a decent point cost.
i think the S5 is ok - as it's just like an unvidived daemon weapon.
Basically, he's got a lord with the MoN and the undivided daemon weapon - what we all want for Christmas.
