Default The Emperor

This has probably been done before, but I made up a statline for the pre-heresy Emperor.

Points WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
600 9 5 5 5 5 6 10 10 2+/3+

Weapons: Sword of Flame, Plasma Pistol

The Emperor may only be used in an army of 3000 points or more.

Special Rules
---------------------------
Sword of Flame
Raises strength by 2 when in close combat(not vehicles)
Power Weapon (ignores saves)
Re-Rolls To Wound and To Hit in close combat
For every wound the Emperor takes, add 1 attack to his profile
------------------------------
Fearless
Furious Charge
"For the Imperium!"- All friendly models within 12" of the Emperor become Fearless
"Big, Godly Armor or Whatever"- The Emperor may not be killed by Instant Death or Special Weapons that ignore wounds(*cough*fabius bile*cough*)
I don't know if the points value is fair, but I've had some battles against stuff in that points range and it seems pretty fair. I'm also working on Horus, but I'm not done yet...

A bit weak... Also, I think he had a personal titan (if he didn't, why?).

This guy is pertty powerful - I don't know if he should have S and T of 6 however. I don't know any fluff on the Emperor, is there a reason why he should be as buff and tough as a carnifex?

Well, I edited my post, so he has 5s now. S 6 is probably overkill, he gets +3 when charging anyway. The only reason I gave him T 6 is so he wouldn't be instant killed by, like, railguns or something, just because that would suck for a 600pt model, but I made another special rule to cover it. His armor isn't 6 good, but seeing Horus in the rulebook, he probably would. The Emperor's armor is just really shiny. I would almost think about giving him a "disorient" special ability because his enemies are blinded by the shiny...

The Emperor is not designed for the scale of a game like 40k.

You cannot try to make his stats... so don't waste your time.

Is that 10 attacks? Cause if it is, I'd say it's a bit much. Also wheres all his psychic doohikkies, after all wasn't he one of, if not, the greatest Psyker to ever live? Besides all that, I think it's a bit too much to make Emperor stats, but that's just my opinion. Mostly because he needs so many more Special rules... Still seem fairly good for a start. One more thing, doesn't he have a Power Fist/Lightning Claw in the drawings?

honestly, the emperor would need better stats than a blood thirster... or any deamon for that matter.more than likely, it would be straight 10's....
