Default a quick game of who can...............

...... design the dirtyest character possible

not sure if this has been done here before but i have tried this at my GW and everyone seems to love coming up with their creations.

these are the rules:


you have the following statline:

WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
7 7 4 4 4 7 4 10 -



you may select 3 items of equipment or armour. this includes individual combat weapons etc. you are completely free to choose ANY armour or weapon that exists in current 40k rules, even if it is weilded/worn by a special character. IT MUST BE INFANTRY PORTABLE (drach'nen - abbadons sword - was popular)

you may select 4 abilities or rules from anywhere in 40k (including special characters). synapse was a popular choice. IT MUST BE FOM EITHER THE RULEBOOK OR A CODEX (exceptions might be made, ask and ye shall find out )

you have the independant character rule as a given and it does not take up one of the 4 choices you get.



i normally use these as commanders in apocolypse, with killing them being an objective (or an objective each time you kill them depending on your choices )




i will run through a couple of choices to get everyone started:


Character 1 - the sniper.

equipment - shadowfield
equipment - eldar jetbike
equipment - railgun

rules - fortune
rules - iron will
rules - marksman
rules - strands of fate





character 2 - the combatant.

equipment - drachn'yn
equipment - mark of slannesh
equipment - GK Nemesis force weapon

rule - enhance
rule - fortune
rule - soulless
rule - synapse




i have deliberately not made them as powerfull as possible, i want to see your creations
(and see how they compare to mine > )


have fun

Well, since no one has started, I'll give it a shot:

I'm Spartacus! (Maybe it'll catch on... ;))
Spartacus, Lord of the Dance!
(Profile includes bumps from his gear and abilities)

WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
7 7 4(8) 4(5) 4 7(8) 4(5*) 10 2+/4+

*Spartacus gets an extra D6 attacks from Drach'Nyen

Equipment:
  • Drach'Nyen And the Talon of Horus - This appears to be a single Item, according to the codex.
  • Terminator Armor
  • Mark of Chaos Ascendant

Abilities:
  • Fleet
  • Feel No Pain
  • Honor of the Chapter {Space Marine Chaplain ability}
  • {Space Marine Captain/Commander ability}

If any of my selections are off (for example, you might feel that the Mark of Chaos Ascendant should be equipment), let me know and I'll fix them.

Edit - Fixed the mangling of my post by Spiritbw. Sorry for posting psuedo-rules with the gear and abilities. Remind me to show you how to use the [ list ] tags at some point. ;)

Also changed the assault cannon out for the MoCA, as El Magnifico has declared it to be equipment. I popped Fleet in the empty ability slot.

I think this may be an improved "Sniper" Darn well could be impossible to kill...

Equipment:
Eldar Jetbike
Heavy Gauss Cannon(On Jetbike)
Eldar Missile Launcher

Abilities:
Veil of Tears(Harlie's version of Stealth Field)
Skyleap(in case I run out of room to run around)
Crack Shot
Fast Shot

Perhaps this would be a lot more diverse if we:
1) Chose a Codex as a "home" codex. We get the stats of an "average" front-line trooper(though save of "-"). Each upgrade from a different codex costs 150%. For abilities, it costs as much as the individual which gets the upgrade(Gah, feels like I'm doing something for DnD).
2) Start the character off with all 3's except for Initiative, Wounds, Attacks and Leadership, which would be 2, 1, 1, 6 respectively. Each increase would cost X points. And then we find a way to charge for weaponry/abilities.

Might be a little fun to have a mini battle or something on Vassal with these ;D

Edit: Thank you SpiritBW for modifying this for me. Guess I wasn't thinking

Just a quick note, no posting what the rules or addons do. Otherwise go for it.

Chosen only out of BA codex for more challenge. Otherwise I had an essentially immortal god of carnage. I suggest checking out C'Tan special rules for much fun.

Equipment: Artificer Armor, The Red Grail, Master Crafted Chainfist

Rule: Lord of Death, Inspiring, Infiltrate, Feel No Pain

2+/4+Inv/4+FnP, the ability to butcher anything in melee, travel as with a jetpack, has preferred enemy vs everything, furious charge, yadda yadda. A possible eight attacks on the charge just rocks. Bring on those mobs of ork boys you mentioned.
