Default Create-A-Character Competition [RULES]

Create-A-Character Competition:

Dates:
  • Entries can be submitted via a PM to Dra'Tuisich-Novae from October 1[sup]st[/sup] till October 21[sup]st[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between October 22[sup]nd[/sup] and October 30[sup]th[/sup].
  • Winners will be announced on the 31[sup]st[/sup] of October.

Prizes:

1st Place - 10pts
2nd Place - 5pts
3rd Place - 2pts

(The top 3 all receive official TO winners seals too).

Rules:

This competition is your opportunity to create a Special Character of your own. Submit stats and rules for your character, including any special rules and weaponry. It can be of any race. Also, include a background story 200 to 300 words in length detailing the character's origins, deeds, traits, and whatever else you please!

Be as creative as possible but remember to create realistic and balanced (point wise!) characters too.

Note this is just creating the rules profile for the character - not an actual model!

No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Can we enter rules for a Warhammer Fantasy character, or is it limited to 40k?

So if we were to use say a Tau Commander Farsight or Wazdakka Gutzmek character entry from the tau codex as a template and guide, to know what sort of info and stats and points and rules to create - would we be on the right track?

YAY

I already have an entry for this. ;D

Just need to tweak the rules a bit and re-read the fluff, then it should be ready.

Ok, I got a couple idea in mind.

Now The Question I have is does he have to be from a Legal Codex or would a character for old Chapter Approuved or even fully house rule race be accepted so long as they are 40K?

Lord Zambia - You might find it useful to look at examples of special characters, yes. You probably don't to base your character too heavily on an existing one, though, if that's what you mean.

Boneguard - To keep things simple, it's probably best if we limit it to the codex races. I think it's best if people have at least a passing familiarity with the race in question.
