Ahriman – Ahriman is extremely expensive, but he’s got some cool tricks. He’s the only guy who can turn on Warptime, hit a squad with Wind of Chaos, and then charge in with his Force Weapon available. The man can do some serious damage for an also-ran.
Brother-Captain Stern – An oldie but a goodie. Stern lets you reroll (and give your opponent a reroll), AND he has that cool Grey Knight Force Weapon (kills, forget Eternal Warrior), AND he has the old-fashioned retinue rules. This is a man who can kill any opponent and live to talk about it.
Jain Zar – Jain Zar is my favorite Phoenix Lord. It’s not just the big hair (we like women with big hair down here in Texas), it’s also the ability to get into BtB with any model she wants to in a combat, and her AP2 shooting attack.
Inquisitor Lord Karamazov – John E. brings Karamazov around a lot; I had frankly never seen him used by anyone until Big John. Karamazov is imposing and a great model. It’s also nice to see something other than the Sisters getting their hands dirty in Assault, and a guy who looks like a Dreadnought but isn’t always throws a nice curve. I’d like to try him in Reserve, coming out to eat Plaguemarines that have come after my objective.
Well, there’s my selection of freaks and outcasts for this time. It’s been fun for me just thinking about these guys, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the ones I picked (and, of course, the ones I didn’t).
