there should be a special character for each bllodline, yes their are some on the GW website but that still leaves Blood dragons and Strigoi without any whilst Von carstein and Necrach's have 2! comments please and suggestions on what should be done
I wholeheartedly agree, but rather than just discuss one why not make them here!
I will begin-
Walach Blood Dragon Grand Master (Or change the name?)
Now I am not sure if we are allowed to post stats for characters we make up, so I will wait for a mod till i write them in.
Probably should have all/most powers of the BD bloodline. He should have some ability to the effect of making duels more in his favor.
The Death Brand
When Walach slays an opponent in a challenge, the unit he is with gains an additional 2 points of combat resolution. (Something else to increase str, maybe not this at all?)
Armor of The Grandmaster
Counts as Full Plate Armor but grants a 2+ save which is cannot be negated by abilities that ignore armor saves. (Can still be reduced by high strength)
The Cursed Sheild of Mousillon
Works as normal but is still negated by an ability that negates armor. (Thus for a strength 3 hit that negates armor saves he would get a 2+ save, but for a normal strength 3 hit he would get a 1+)l
Thats my first draft for now, I know there is much more to fix up and blah blah blah, but i want feedback and change too. I think he should be somewhere in the range of 500-800pts, its too tough to make a good lord for cheaper since they can go up to 400something points normally.
Vorag the First Ghoul King (again subject to change)
4+ Scaly skin (becuase he is so old and beaten from the elements)
4+ ward save
Curse of the Revenant
Summon Ghouls (He should be able to use it more than once, and be able to add to present units with it but how many i dont know)
The First Ghoul King:
Vorag Can join units of ghouls, and so can any thralls he brings with him
One unit of ghouls can be made scouts for free if vorag is the general
Please add more, take out some, make these guys balanced but still the awesome spectacles of undeath that they should be, for conquering death they should be able to conquer many a mere mortal!.
Do the website characters require permission?
yes they do.
and for the blood dragon guy I think there are too many armour rules it will get people confused... but I do agree he should have something to benefit himself in combat. maybe the idea that you can take GG and BK as core units instead of special... or you can have 0-1 BK and 0-1 GG as core units then any more you take will count as regular special...
What you are we once were. What we are you will become!!!
Didnt the BD have a SP called the red baron or simlier in the previous editian maybe revambing his rules to ift would give you one.
Yes people i know that my spelling and punctuation is awful but I am product of British teaching pollicies so what can I do about it?
yeah thatd be cool
What you are we once were. What we are you will become!!!
ive test trialled a few characters that me and my friends ahve made up for all the bloodlines i did that lahmian though ill post that and the strigoi's as that all ive got
Princess Aerinsta (personal bodyguard of neferata)
she has the vampire countess statline but with weapon skill 7, she has innocense lost, quickblood and her own stuff as well
Dagger of the undying ones
poisined attacks and all attacks cause D6 wounds
she has neferata's shadowblood cast on a 9+
Jewel of Bastet
This confers the Regenaration rule(this cannot be used on wounds sacrified using shadowblood)
she is a lord + hero and comes to 600pts
the strigoi charactor was Ushoran which we saw from somewhere else he had a strigoi lords stats he had Curse of the revenant
Massive monstorsity(making 5 wounds)
infinate hatred and iron sinews and he had a magi item(shock shock horror)
necklace of the undead foe
this gives him the abily to cause fear, i cant remeber where isaw it but i wrote it down, he costs 840pts and was a lord and 2 heroes
ill post the blood dragon rules which i found on the internet as well for Walach when i find them, but what i do rmember is that he was immune to crumbling but very expensive
I'm all for a Blood Dragon special character. It does make sense that GW would give each bloodline a special character.
Of the ones out there, I love Neferata. She kicks butt. I've never fielded Zacharias, but he seems pretty darned tough, but when do you take him? 4000 pts?
Abhorash - 480pts
WS BS S T W I A Ld Stuff
10...6...188.8.131.52.6.10...Hand Weapon, Shield, Full Plate Armour
Abhorash has all of the Blood Dragon Bloodline Powers (Red Fury already included in profile)
Aborash is a Lv.2 Wizard that always uses Necromancy
Father of Blood: Same as Blood Dragon Challenge Rule except he overrules other lords
Unequalled Swordsman: Abohrash can depatitate a man in an instant and as such he can killing blow on a 5+
Dragon Slayer: Abohrash can find the weakness of any creature and so can killing blow larger than man sized enemies, albiet on a 6+
Elder Vampire: as one of the first vampires aborash is harder to kill than even the vampire lords, this coupled with his ability to dodge almost any blow gives him a 5+ ward save

That's a pretty nasty character build and should probably go for more than 480 pts IMO.Originally Posted by BloodDragon666
