Default Additional IG special characters?

I downloaded the Macharian Crusade today and I noticed the HUGE amount of special characters. Would these be legal to use in my IG army? Also were these models ever made or do i just have to try to put something together using bits?

These characters seem pretty decent since most of them have army-wide special rules, which from what I hear is going to be the focus of the new IG special characters in next year's codex.

In a friendly game, sure, as long as you warn your opponent that you are using a non-codex character, and tell him what he does. However, in a tourney or similar GW event, you couldn't use his rules, but you could use the model to represent a HSO or something.

Macharius was the only person to have a model made, and the only person with official rules. Otherwise you would have to convert the character. The conversions in the book don't look too difficult. Sejanus is just a Commissar model painted to look like a Mordian, not much easier than that.

Yeah you'd have to convert them as that's an unofficial rulebook, but god it's got lots of heros!
