Currently fixing up an old chart that me and a couple Warhammerites made back in the day that can accurately generate point costs/restrictions to make actual balanced custom characters. It features everything from extra stats/Special Wargear/Extra Rules and has even been used to make everything from a 1984pt Chaos Lord to a 22pt Tau Stealth Suit Commander.
Ill repost this as soon as its finished... but in the meentime feel free to post your ideas for custom commanders and ill throw them through our chart just for kicks. any suggestions are welcome.
All is Dust! Hail to the Changer of Ways!
Could you maybe share the original too? ^^;;
I'm agreeing with these two, any chance you could let us have a butchers please?
Well I have a rough draft for you. keep in mind it is a rough draft and I am looking for a cool name. I came up with one I liked.
Chief Librarian Trager Arcanium
And They Shall Know No Fear, Combat Tactics, Independent Character
Trager has gone mad with the warp. He can hold himself from being possessed by daemons but he is known to take rash actions. Trager must assault the closest enemy if possible. However, due to this power that flows through him his weapon skill and initiative are increased to 6 because his senses are honed in to the battle.
Scythe of Mortarion: The scythe of Mortarion was given to Trager before he turned to chaos. The scythe counts as a force weapon and grants Trager Arcanium with two additional attacks (already included above).
Built in psychic hood: Trager has a built in psychic hood in his helmet. The same rules apply.
Fusion bolter: This bolter contains the power to shoot melta-slugs. These bolter shots have the melta special rule and are strength 6, AP 3.
Trager Arcanium has access to three psychic powers a turn.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
K yea. Im not at my home computer right now so ill try to get the old ver up. Ill also post the new one soon as i am almost done it.
Yes the Chart can make C'tan. It can make anything. The new chart can also make custom units.
All is Dust! Hail to the Changer of Ways!
Coolio, this will be cool to see when its finally up!
How about a 3 wound, 3 attacks Chaplain with Terminator Honours, a powerfist and a Jump pack?
5 5 4 4 3 5 4 10 3+/4++
Combat Tactics, Independent Character, Honour of the Chapter, Liturgies of Battle
Wargear: Crozius Arcanum, Rosarius, Powerfist, Terminator Honours, Jump pack.
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
I have one for you.
Endymion, a chaos sorceror
WS BS S T W I A L SV
6 5 4 4 3 4 4 10 3/5+
Endymion's Staff, Endymion's Bolt Pistol, Doom Siren, Mark of Slaanesh, Daemonic Aura
Psychic Abilities and Equipment
Warp Talisman, Doombolt, Enhance Senses (described below), Minor Psychic Powers: Fuelled by Pain, Touch of Slaanesh,
Endymion may use this power in his own Shooting phase. It requires a Psychic test to use. May target any friendly unit within 18". If the test is passed, the unit is at +1 WS and BS until the beginning of the caster's next Shooting phase. This power may be used in addition to any shooting Endymion may have, and may be cast on units in combat.
Endymion's Staff is a daemon weapon that ignores armour saves, counts as a Personal Icon and grants him +1 Attack but lowers his Initiative by 1 due to its large and heavy nature (both bonuses are included in the profile above). If he is in combat with multiple enemies, Endymion's Staff grants him another additional attack. Endymion's Staff also negates the need for Familiars.
Endymion's Bolt Pistol
Endymion's Bolt Pistol is a bolt pistol inscribed with arcane sorcerous runes. To represent this, it counts as being master-crafted, and having an AP of 4.
That was based on the last edition CSM rules though
I'd be more interested to see the actual process you're using to generate the points costs. Then we can all share the wealth, and offer you come suggestions for tweaking it.
Sounds pretty awesome, too. I'm surprised GW hasn't made a system like this already - or have they? It would fit right alongside the VDR, TMC creator, critter/plant creator...
Tyranids: 2500 pts
Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
