Any of my regular opponents will tell you that its very rare for me to include a named character in a normal game. This is in part because I like to save them for fitting encounters, but more because I prefer my leaders to be something a bit more unique.
Last weekend I my Tyberos model turned up and I immediately set about converting and painting him over to an Iron Warrior warlord. This all went very well (and as soon as I get a decent picture i'll get it posted up), but next comes the tricky bit: how to try to make him more of a 'character' within the rules
In this case I started with a Chaos Warlord profile and added the terminator armour. To this I added a Mark of Slannesh to represent his heightened combat ability and the fact that i felt he'd be more 'agile'. I could have given him claws, but this didn't quite capture the unique chainfist/lightening claw combo he actually has. Instead I opted for a DaemonWeapon. The combination of extra attacks, extra risk of self damage and the instant kill ability seemed to now make my character a much more dangerous proposition and much more fitting the look of the model.
The next challenge? Cypher
