I was just wondering if any of you experience IG players out there have made your own special characters, to fit with your own army and army fluff? And also, if you wouldn't mind posting them here? I'm curious, I might make my own special character.

Nobody have their own special characters? Well, I just want to point out that the special characters in our book, for instance...for 125 points, you get Usarkar Creed with very much decent stats and for free you get Kell, with even better stats than him. Also...my friend has the 'Nid codex, and Old One Eye with craploads of crap at his arsenal is only 90 pts. So it just comes to show...I think we can make our own cheap special characters for less points than should be possible.

I don't understand how one eye can be so cheap...getting your wounds back ( possibly ) at the start of every turn is cheesy...I mean hes friggin 90 pts !! Considering how much firepower you would have to pour into him, then he stands back...that could be the end of your game right there...another reason why I don't play against people who use Special Characters

You have to rememebr that OLd one eye cant hid behind anything. One nids cant cover each otehr and two he is too big ot hide behind most terrian. Gaunt is 75 points and he has very nice stats. The last chancers are great and they are pretty good for 11 pts a pop. For 125 pts you get two thats right two great charactors. One that has a company banner a power sword and get this a powerfist. Yarrick is a deal for like the 135 pts that he is worth. If you are great at rolling there is a good chance you cant hurt him. So IG are pretty well off.

Another thing I'd like to point out...mighty interesting, this is...

A Heroic Senior Officer is 70 points. Add power weapon, plasma pistol, carapace armor, Bionics, Macharian Cross, and a Medallion Crimson, and that makes him 130 points.

Colonel Schaeffer has all of those, plus one better WS than a Heroic Senior Officer, and guess what? He's 75 points. That's just kind of weird. Just thought I'd point that out...why are our Heroic Senior Officers so pricely when a Special Character with better stats and identical equipment is what...55 points cheaper?

The reason he is so cheep is becuase you have to then buy Kage and at least 4 Last Chancers.

154 points. Not so cheep now, assuming you have basically a Junior Officer, Heroic Senior Officer, and four guardsmen. OK, a last chancer is SLIGHTLY better, but not much.
