Default Generalissimo Arkadia Vladimir Stankov

Hey! Just heard about the new board... Simply awesome!

Anyways, here's Arkadia Vladimir Stankov, who has a title too long to write.

Points BS WS S T W I A Ld Sv
* 5 5 3 3 3 2 3 10 5+


Weapons: Bolt Pistol, Axe of Saint Bertrusk

Wargear: Carapace Armour, Refractor Field, Purity Seals, Macharian Cross, Sash of Kilmbridge, frag grenades

Special Rules:

Axe of Saint Bertrusk- The Axe of Saint Bertrusk was carried by the Siant Himself. It was forged with holy, blessed metals, and was gifted to Stankov in his fight against Nurglish infestations by the Eccliesiarchs [sp?]. It counts as a holy relic, as well as a master-crafted power weapon. It can be swung with one hand to the effect of a power weapon, or with both hands as a power fist. When swung with two hands, his I is reduced to one. If Stankov dies in Close Combat, the enemy steals the Axe as they would a regimental standard. It may change hands throughout the battle. All units within 6" of the Axe on that faction are Fearless.

Old War Wounds- Stankov was once a sprightly young campaigner, but many decades of battle and injuries have slowed him down. He always strikes at Inintiative 2, unless being assaulted in cover.

Sash of Kilmbridge
- Awarded to Stankov for his shining participation in the Liberation of Kilmbridge, it is a scarlet sash worn from the shoulder to the hip. It counts as a trademark item.

Anyone know how many points that would roughly be? I'm very bad at the calculations!

Thanks!
Stankov

woah, woah, woah there buck-wheat.

WS and BS 5 is way to high for this dude. This is the sort of thing that Veteran Space Marines haven't quite yet aspired to, and no matter how skilled Stankov is with his ol' axe there he just couldn't possibly have it in him to be 5. 4, at most.

dont you think the axes is a bit over-done? 6 inch fearlessness, str 6, ignores saves, holy relic, master craftness. thats quite alot of stuff for just an axe.

Ellesar's right there also. The "two handed vs. one handed" thing is another piece that belongs in marine-dom, and only marine-dom. This goes back to the point I made earlier- a guardsmen is still a guardsmen, even if he's some kind of well trained officer he just wouldn't have the strength to make a power weapon into a power fist. That feat takes pure mucsle.

and it's rather pointless. the downside to using it as a powerfist is reduced initiative, but your guy is In 2 anyways, so no one is ever going to use it single handedly.

Well, the I is because he's old... perhaps if its 2 handed, it will be +1 S. Does that sound better?

And, its a special axe... a REALLY special axe... but I see your point. It was either give him all that, or roll it into the axe so he looks less marine-y, and the axe looks more godly.

Thanks!
Stankov
