Default Special Characters

Well, I was playing my friend and I wanted to use The Nightbringer in my necrons. But, he didn't let me. I was wondering how do you know which special characters you need your opponents permission and the one's you don't ???

Default Re: Special Characters

4th edition proves very limiting for special characters. Codices used to hold many special characters, that are now dissapearing, and are either being replaced by lacking individuals, or are not being replaced at all. There is actually a rule where you must have your opponent's consent to play special characters, and only characters that say you do not need permission may be played without it.

There aren't many of those characters left, but they will be listed as being able to be played without permission if they are allowed. So just read the character's profile, and you will know.

actuallym due to the new faq, the c'tan are the only special characters you need to have your opponent's permission to field...

How can you be sure what you know is the truth if you haven't taken the time to ask yourself the questions that dispute it?

By not letting them field a C'Tan, you're actually helping them..
