Abaddon. Can deep strike, can't be instant-killed, can instant-kill anything on a 2+, and can have a retinue of terminators. Broken.

Anything from the chaos codex. or any special character that can be included without yuor opponents consent.

In general, it is my opinion that special characters have no place in the skirmish game. they should be fluff only.

So what you opinions on Star gods ;D

Also some special characters are fine for skirmish games (the Dark angels super scout)

Simple: ignore them. Their army will have phased out long before they can do any damage...

What about Ghazghkull Thraka? His Power of the Waaagh! makes both him and any accompying Mega-Armoured Nobz totally unstoppable (if only for a single turn - all he needs). Being slow doesn't matter to him, he can get in a fast moving truck. When he's actually in combat, he'll be throwing tons of S10 attacks at you (as will his bodyguard) and can rip anything to shreds. Who cares if he goes last, his power can give him a 2+ inv save against anything that's a threat to him!
