PostSubject: Who will you be? Build-a-hero   Mon Aug 06 2012, 16:37

Here's a little game that's both fluffy and fun.

I had a talk with one of my friends on who I would be from any codex in the 40K universe. The only rules are that you must be able to build him from a 40K codex. I think our next step is to physically build the model and paint them for use in our games. That way, you can actually be on the battlefield!

Here's me..

Wolf Lord, Runic Armor, Belt of Russ, Frostblade, Wolf Tooth Talisman, Wolf Tail Talisman, Meltabombs, Saga of the Warrior Born

For now, don't write the points out on your dude.
Why? Because there's a Part II coming to this exercise that you guys will love.

Hi, I'm a Wolf Lord. Who are you?

I have a question: does the codex have to be current?

Aww... okay then.

I am Grand Archon Dernia Cavash!

He's going to be expensive! Twisted Evil

Oh gosh! It's quite funny cause I settled on a Haemonculus character for the very reason to have some older school players to have a mini to point at and say "Yeah, that right there. That's me on the battlefield." as per the old wording of the HQs. I've got the mini made but not painted. This sounds really fun, though, so...

I am a Haemonculus Ancient with Huskblade, Flesh Gauntlet, Hexrifle, Shattershard.

You can call me Siticus and I will try to make your demise as quick and inventive as I possibly can. I'm a busy man.

a technical question:
there is codex: witch hunter and codex: sisters of battle, but these are separate dexes, with ordo hereticus being 4th ed. Can ordo hereticus be taken in to consideration?

you didnt get me...the curent sob dex is sisters of battle adepta sorroritas, but there are ordo hereticus, that are a separate thing, for in that, you have access to imperial troops as well, inquisitors, inquisitorial henchmen, etc. In C:SoB, you have eclesiarchs and priests, that are strictly adepta sorroritas.
My question was can i use a 4th ed dex, since ordo hereticus didnt get updated yet? Smile since i want to use a C:OH, not a C:SoB

No because it's a invalid codex and it'll mess up the 2nd part of the exercise!

But I guess you can do it anyway if you want.

sadly the SoB update replaced Codex: Witch Hunters Enfernux

If you want an Ordo Hereticus, just use GKs, they have all 3 types of Inquis in there

Since an Archon would be too easy, and my second choice already taken (love the Autarch) Ill guess Ill settle with my other love... Raven Guard Razz

Shadow Captain Ildric Kardus of the Raven Guard 8th Company

Artificer's Armor, Iron Halo, Jump Pack, Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield, Frag Grenades, Krak Grenades

"When the enemy hears that the Raven Guard are near by, they look into the shadows in fear. In reality, they should be looking at the sky." - Shadow Captain Ildric Kardus of the Raven Guard 8th Company

I would have chosen an Archite from the last codex:

Archite
Shadow Field
Combat Drugs
Punisher
Animus Vitae (the old one)

But since that is gone and died I would have to go to the other spectrum:

Basu'al Bax
Ancient Haemonculus of the Disciples of Rakkarth (DOR)
Flesh Gauntlet
Liquifier

A Klaivex with a demi-klaive & onslaught would be my 2nd pick.
