Is gorhoof and ungol considered special characters, or are they just considered a unit upgrade? It is confusing because they are named characters but in the army list they can only be fielded as upgrades to their respective units. So, special character or unit upgrade?

My understanding is that they are (pretty hard) unit champions and use all such rules.

Correct: Each of these named champions is just that-- a champion. Thus, they can never leave their units, cannot be included alongside any "unnamed" champion, and do not count towards the characters limit of the army.

From a rules standpoint anyway. I would call them characters and champions just because any named model is a character from the rulebook's perspective. They replace and follow the rules for unit champions, however.

They are however special characters when you consider rules for tournaments that forbid special characters - a named champion is just like a named character.
