Default overall best statline

what single model has the best overall statline

ie if you add WS+ BS + S + T +W +I +A + Ld

for a marine its 31

for Kharn its 44

so whats the highest

(i didn't count save as that is usually confer ed by armour and is also measured differently (ie lower is better)

I think the single best statline is the nightbringer. The numbers for it equals 52
The deceiver equals 49. I don't know the statline for the bloodthrister though.

The greater deamons might be contenders, I don't know the exact statline but the lowest WS among them is 7 or so.

It also might be the Heirophant from Forge World... big ugly bug.

Here's the greater daemons:

Bloodthirster has the statline total of 46
Great Unclean One has the statline total of 44
Lord of Change has the statline total of 47
Keeper of Secrets has the statline total of 46

So the Nightbringer probably has the best statline total. Of course this is not counting ForgeWorld models, which I would guess Wile E didn't intend to include anyway.

Does this include Chaos Lords that are configured? They're characters after all. Or does this only include pre-made characters, like the special characters, greater daemons, avatars, C'tan, etc?

If so, we could have something like:

Chaos Lord
-Mark of Khorne
Daemonic Strength
Daemonic Essence
Daemonic Mutation
Daemonic Resilience
-Terminator Armor
-Power Fist
-Power Weapon

Which is: WS5, BS5, S9, T5, W4, I5, A7, Ld10 = 50. Just under the Deciever, but greater than a Blood Thirster.

Now, if we used a variable setup, the stat-line would alter if we used other war gear that has random modifiers, such as the Manreaper and Nurgling Infestation, which could potentially add 2 to 12 to the modifiers. Example:

Chaos Lord
-Mark of Nurgle
Daemonic Strength
ManReaper
Nurgling Infestation
Daemonic Mutation
Daemonic Essence
-Terminator Armor

This gives us: WS5, BS5, S5, T5, W4, I5, A5+D6+D6 (A7 to A17), Ld10 = Which is a minimum of 46 to a maximum of 56.

And of course... we could probably get even more from another configuration... but this is already higher than a C'tan's number, but it's variable, so it's not quite as impressive.

And just for surprise factor, Inquisitor Karamazov of the Witch Hunters (throne of judgement) is a 42 Not bad!

Now what about vehicle characters? Such as Nuadhu 'Fireheart', Wild Rider of Saim Hann? Because if you count all his stat-numbers up, he's 54!

Aun'shi is a 36... normal Ethereal is 31

Farsight is 42 with his monstrous creature scores... without them he's 38

the tau really need some better special Characters...

Moriar doesn't count... a Normal Dreadnought with a Dread CCW is 58... without one he's 54

EDIT: dread #s

A Hive Tyrant without Biomorphs is 41 :-\ ...but with Biomorphs he can be bosted up to 47! ^-^ Respectable no?
Why did I do a Hive Tryant? Because the basic Carnifex is only 37... :P :

Vehicles don't count, Land raider has 46, but you can't compare Facing Armour with Initative.
