Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just wanted to know peoples thoughts on our Codex's special characters, such as Wazdakka, Thraka, Snikrot, Zogwort and any others. Are they worth their points? Is a Warboss/Nob better? Do you use them?
Thraka - In bigger games, he's a monster, and well worth the points, also worth it if your playing any green tide list, 18" assault ftw!
Snikrot- Awesome against gaurd/tau who will want to turtle away from you, sneak him in with a warboss or GKT (thats thraka btw) and watch them tear a hole in your enemies ranks.
Capt Badrukk- Only reason to take flash gitz. Make them a unit specifically designed to take out termies. Give him as many ammo runt shots as you can. Only useful in higher point games though.
Can't comment on the rest, I am in the process of converting Zogwort I think he would be fun!
wazdakka is good if you like the bikers and if you kit them out well then they can be a pretty good army if they are supported properly. as for his actual combat potential then he is pretty good at killing tanks with his PK and S8 shots
thraka is good for he green tide for 18 inch assault and devastating combat potential i would strongly recommend him. i even use him in 1250.
snikrot is also a beast with his coming in from any board edge. take two burnas and a warboss then just kill everyone.
forgotten the name but the storm boyz one isnt worth it. you never want to deepstrike with stormboys cos they can get an assault on turn 2 easy. take a nob with PK instead.
mad dok and zogwort are only good for the fluff. neither is particularly competitive or add that much to the army. i would always take a generic HQ instead.
badtrukk could maybe be good but he can only be taken with flash gitz, which are useless compared to other heavies, so that sorta knocks him out of the running.
thats just my two cents
The other major plus on Wazdakka is that he can make a unit of bikes count as troops. T5 4+ cover and 18" (3+ cover) movement to grab objectives late in the game. He is good, but if you are playing missions, that special rule is graet.

Da Boss Snikrot is the only one I have used. I have used him 4 or 5 times and he has not let me down. He can add a different dimension to your game. Especially against an army like Guard that like to sit back and shoot.
