Default Lord Solar Macharius

OK, I have the chance to get a Lord Solar model, and I know there are rules for him(in fact, I used to have them!) However, I cannot find them anywhere! So, if anyone has them, would you care to share them with me?

I know that Games workshop used to have an article on 'rules for special IG characters' (had the rules for Lord Solar Macharius, Nork Deddog, and som1 else)on their site, but since the stupid site makeover it seems to have disappeared, I have searched long and hard and it is no longer there!
The only hope is that someone copied the rules of the site and still has them somewhere, all i can remember is macharius had IC, Fearless (confers to any squad he joins) and a bolt pistol, power wep, 2+normal 4+inv, 4 atks (without 2 wep bonus), and WS5 BS5 (I think) and his special version of Rites Of Battle
so here is a guesstimated profile from what I know

WS BS S T A W I LD SV PTS
5 5 3 3 4 4? 4? Fearless 2+ 4++ about 150 I think

IC, Fearless, bolt pistol, Power Wep, rites of battle (all troops LD 10 NOT FEARLESS)

I think that that is Roughly correct but I hope that someone did copy his profile of GW or it is gone forever :'(

BoLS has rules depicting Macharius at the beginning of his Crusade in their campaign book, which are fairly similar to the "official" rules. But I still have the "official" rules in paper form. So here they are:

[Rules removed because of GW IP]

How can the rules be under GW IP if they are in no offical books, nor upon their web site?

I would like to know where you got that impression.. The rules for Macharius are in the 3rd Edition Guard codex.. In fact I have them opened in front of me right now.. and if we flip to the front..

"Produced by Games Workshop

Citadel and the Citadel logo.. Blah.. Blah.. trademarks of Games Workshop..

Armoured Fist, Basilisk, Chimera, Codex, Colonel Schaeffer, Commissar Yarrick.. blah blah.. Sentinel, (Here we are..)
SOLAR MACHARIUS and Vanquisher are all trademarks of Games Workshop Ltd..

Blah.. Blah.."




So, yes.. they are copyrighted..

To post something that is GW copyrighted, is against the forum rules, you're lucky no other action has been taken.

Aaaahhhh OK sorry GW never said anythink about their copyright of the rules they put on their site and I hadn't realised that they had already been published under copyright

Waaaaittt a sec, is the 3rd ed guard codex the current one that will soon be replaced? because if it is, it does not have Macharius's rules in...

Anyway I really suggest ppl download the Macharian Crusade Campaign Supplement from BoLS, it is brilliant and you dont nececarily have to use the campain rules, I am currently converting my army into Cadian Rangers even though I don't plan to play the campaign

The rules for the Lord solar model are in the Codex prior to the current 3rd edition codex currently being used by guard players.

Locked.
