From what i have seen, if the imperial guard are going to have a single character at that points cost, i would like to see some changes, please comment on whether i am a bit OTT with this?
The battle klaw was recieved from a ferocious battle against an ork warboss who ripped his arm off with it, with one sweep of his blade, yarrick cut the warboss's head off, taking his battle klaw as a trophy
The battle klaw counts as a power fist in all terms but due to the addition of bionics in yarrick arm, is even more powerful than before, Yarricks strength has been automatically altered in his profile when he uses the Battle Klaw.
Bale eye (read IG codex)
Force Field yarrick holds on himself a powerfull force field that can nullify the strength of even a lascannon to a mere lasgun shot! when yarrick is hit in both close combat and ranged attacks, roll a D6, from that result remove the number rolled from the strength of the attack, if the attack becomes lower than S1 than it is ignored, after the rolls have been made, you may roll to wound as normal on that strength
Rosarius sick of seeing other Lord commisars and commanders around him carrying a refractor field and getting obliterated from torrents of fire, yarrick took heed of the missionaries rosarius which allows them to take a flurry of fire. Yarrick has a 4+ invulnerable save with the rosarius
Independent character, Eternal warrior, Aura of discipline, Inspirational hero (read IG codex), Iron will (read IG codex)
After using yarrick, it just got very irritating to see him compared to other units around him, for example, a lord commisar with powerfist has more assaults due to 2 close combat weapons and the same strength (If you look, yarrick in essence had only 2 assaults without 2 close combat weapons!), they can also have carapace armour, yet have a refractor field, giving them an invulnerable save.
After fighting Ghazghkull thraka, it seems that he should be better at fighting, afterall they had "similar" fighting capabilities, so should have a similar ability.
with S6, you just don't get enough back for having I1 when he's meant to be able to take on orks, Having S8 seemed too unfair so i thought that a compromise of S7 in his profile is the only fair way to achieve that.
I just feel that yarrick is overly glorified in the stories and is one of THE worst HQ's in the entire game, anything can kill him quite easily, a mere space marine can kill him with ease! so i though i'd do him justice and change him slightly, he has all the same wargear as in his codex version like stormbolter, powersword etc, just more bang for your buck.
The first force field was replaced with the 4th edition force field just to mention, and he has a rosarius, not a refractor field, so he only has one field as i can see.
Also, what are you mentioning the single powerfist rule at? my quote "(If you look, yarrick in essence had only 2 assaults without 2 close combat weapons!)" or the one about the lord commisar? cause even then, i think yarrick essentially has less assaults on their "basic" profile, as with the bale eye (yes that means 3 power fist assaults) but with a lord commisar, they have 3 already, then the 2nd close combat weapon uses their normal profile which is S3 I3. So still, they have one "more" assualt than yarrick so still they are better in that way?
Just by looking at his equivalents and even units in the same codex who are cheaper like straken are so much better than him, for 185pts a model has to be pretty good and i'm sure there are few 185pt characters that can get killed by one marine on tabletop rules, if he can take on ghazghkull, he can take on alot of things with ease!
Ah but there you are,you must not mix rules with fluff.
Praise be to the Emperor!!
IMO the strength reducing device is a field which is why he doesn't already have one.Originally Posted by 323rdpraetorianIf you have a powerfist you get NO second weapon bonuses (unless you have a 2nd powerfist), even at standard S and I, so Yarrick and a Lord Commissar have identical numbers of attacks.Also, what are you mentioning the single powerfist rule at? my quote "(If you look, yarrick in essence had only 2 assaults without 2 close combat weapons!)" or the one about the lord commisar? cause even then, i think yarrick essentially has less assaults on their "basic" profile, as with the bale eye (yes that means 3 power fist assaults) but with a lord commisar, they have 3 already, then the 2nd close combat weapon uses their normal profile which is S3 I3. So still, they have one "more" assualt than yarrick so still they are better in that way?
Ahh, misread the rule, i read it as the model's bonus attack uses his standard profile if he had a powerfist, thunderhammer or lightning claw (don't ask me how!) ok my bad, so he does have the same amount of assaults in CC as a lord commisar, i'll change his profile to meet that.
Also, i'm a bit confused as to what you mean he doesn't already have a field, he does? he has his normal re-roll wounds field as in the codex, the force field rules in 3rd edition were changed from transition to 5th edition, i just prefered his old rules for his force field, which i thought were much fairer on him. it would explain how he could withstand all of ghazghkull's klaw attacks at armageddon without dying in one sweep.
