Default Which Special Character is your favourite?

Those are all I can think of- I'm sure there are more. I have not put in individual SM chapter masters (Logan Grimnar etc.) but I will if someone wants them.
Personally I pick Creed & Kell as you get 2 for 1, both are good, they have cool fluff and nice models.

Tut tut, i can see the mods not liking this post for the pure fact people end up arguing. Same with the "Which army is best?" questions that pop up.

Good luck

That.. is a long poll. It's hard to compare when you don't know all their point costs or statlines - which you can't post here anyway. So rather than saying "who is the best?" - perhaps it might be better to ask "Who is your favourite?" and giving the option to suggest say, up to 5 characters. Because frankly I don't think there is a 'correct' answer to what is the best. They should all be balanced and so you would be paying however many points that they should be worth.

I'm going to have to throw a vote in for Yriel - he's downright cheap for the vicious assault capacity he has, the only failing being a lack of mobility... but a Falcon Fortress can easily fix that.

Well in a straight up fight Abaddon smashes pretty much everybody besides the Nightbringer.

I dont really like any of the ones you listed besides Chypher.

I cant recall if Shaffer [sp?] was on there? if so, him. He's awesome in the 13th Legion Novels.

There is no High Marshal Heilbrecht or Reclusiarch Grimaldus, Hero of Hellsreach either

Mine has gotta be the High Marshal or Grimaldus though, OH look, you charged me? I get D3 extra attacks!

Oh look, you killed me? Leadership test, I pass, I still live.

As much as I resent these types of topics, I have kept to the spirit of whatever this vote will achieve and I voted for Abaddon.
