8th Army List Ideas
« on: October 19, 2010, 05:33:31 PM »
The empire shouldn't have any real compostion restrictions for heroes besides the base profile and magical aptitude. Why can't a general of the empire dual-wield a runefang and an add. hand weapon? (or even two magic weapons, but thats a problem with warhammer as a whole.) I would like to suggest that special characters should not just be cookie cutter, but should be custom built.

It would take a single amendment to 2 pages in the Warhammer rulebook to make this possible. And editting magic weapons as either single or two handed not a big ask.

It is not possible at the moment to take a normal shield with a magic weapon! WHY!
GW - wont make a special character profile for each Elector Count they should at least make it possbile to create your own unique special characters.
 
General of the Empire - upgradeable to Elector Count equipped with runefang still has 100pt Magic items.
Wizard Lord - upgrade Patriach who has Loremaster? or +1spell and maybe 150pts magic items or a unique magic item for each school of magic?
Templar Grand Master - same maybe add. special rule.
Arch Lector - same

Capt of the Empire -3 or 4 different skills/background (Hunter, Seneschal, Veteran ...)
Battle Wizard - same
W. Priest - unique prayer for each religion

THESE ALL HAVE TO BE POINTCOSTED TO THEIR ADVANTAGES IM NOT SAYING GIVE AN 80PT GENERAL A RUNEFANG FOR FREE
