Okay I got to thinking about how the Grey Knights are the most elite of all Space Marines ,and have some of the most important individuals in the imperium in their ranks, and I decided they need a special character other than Brother-Captain Stern. I decided they need a special GRAND MASTER character. I mean. c'mon Grand Masters are the highest ranking soldiers in the most elite space marines chapter. So I made a special character. Here he is. I would love feedback, is he too tough, too weak, too expensive, too cheap, etc. So here he is

I used the chaos codex points values for statistic increases and charged a little more than I thought was fair for the special abilities.

Grand Master Darius of the Grey Knights

I think he looks fairly balanced. Have you made out the fluff for him yet?

As for getting point values for stat increase I always consult the Codex CSM, the prices for the daemonic gifts are a good pointer to how much they should cost. I have a similar project going on for a DA Special Character in the SM forum please take a look a tell me what you think

I haven't gotten around to writing the fluff yet I will hopefully get it done soon though. I'm hoping my opponents will let me use him :). Thanks for the feedback.

Wow... He's a tough b*st*rd! Fairly balanced even though I wouldn't like to fight him in CC with all those attacks... I'd definately let you play him!

Fluffy goodness

Grand Master Darius Augustus was of one of the first recruited Grey Knights. He excelled in training and distinguished himself on the field of battle, quickly rising to the rank of Justicar. After pushing back an incursion of Traitor Marines on Grakos 6, he received a suit of terminator armor and underwent the Emperor’s Soul Binding. After many more successful campaigns, he achieved the rank of Brother-Captain and honed his psychic abilities to the point where he could unleash a devastating explosion of psychic power upon his enemies. Finally, after thousands of years and millions of battles, he became a Grand Master. Mastering his psychic abilities, he became an almost unstoppable bringer of destruction to all who would oppose the Emperor. After single-handedly banishing a Bloodthirster of Khorne from the material plane, he was brought to Terra and received a psychic blessing from the Emperor himself.

Cool guy, good job on the points value. That guy would be expensive with those nice stats. I would also let you play with him.

Nice model, but i'd do something with the sign :huh: , center the text, maybe add a grain effect :unsure: i dont know. But i'd fix it somehow.

About the Character:
It good, its kewl, its alright by me.
Except for one thing.

He is a servant of a corpse. And soon he, and all his little buddies shall burn in the fires of Chaos.
HE SHALL BURN! BWHAAHAHAHAHAHA....

I had to...you know i had to.

i think the character is well balanced and pretty cool. However i dont really think it fits in with the grand master. Inquistors are know around the universe so this means that the special characters are very easy to do however grey knights are very secretive and any grey knight grand master like him would only ever come to fight on a very special ocassion. so it would be unlikly that he would partake in just any old battle.
