Ok, in my local club, we are playing a map-based-campaign.
My opponent had a emissarie from the Albion-list. (6th edition)

Are these characters allowed in an not-Albion campaign???
Can u use 6th edition special characters that are not in the armybooks???

Let me know soon!!!

They are Dogs of War, thus they are legal. I use one in my force.

Also, Dark Emissaries and Truthsayers are not special characters. Annual 2003 had rules on how to use those characters as DoW in non-Albion environment (the rules are also somewhere on GW website).

I love the Albion special characters! The truthsayer had pride of place in my dogs of war army for a long time. The supportive magic works great!

I also really like the fenbeasts but 85 points is a bit steep (mine always missed) thank god they were unbreakable.

Their rules can be found here..

As said, they're not special characters, but I'd find a "fluffy" reason why they're wherever they are, rather than just saying "yeah, he showed up, deal with it".

Simple answer: ask your local club guy.

Mine ties in with the force theme of it being from somewhere boggy, thus they escaped Albion before the Lizardmen showed up.

vampires are cool!
