    no named character game

    I used to play friendly game and tournament without no named character. For example No Saint Celestine but a canoness as HQ. I also usually play at most a thousand point game.

    All i see is list upon list and tactica with named character.

    My question is this. In this new edition of 40k is it still possible and vialable to play without named character?

    Well, I never do.... it DOES feel like GW has really been pushing them lately, though... starting with the release of the triumvirates, and continuing with the pre-8th "previews" always pushing for the main big boys of each army.

    Don't like it much, and if you're like me in that regard... then fight the power, man! Fight dat' powah'!

    We've always played with off-the-rack characters for whom we made up our own names, backgrounds, etc...

    No special characters here....every guard list I see has some bloke called Pask in it , but he'll not worm his way into mine!

    Much more fun to make up your own. A name , a backstory, a bolt pistol...what more does a true hero of the Imperium need?

    Even reading the index is confusing. I thought that celestine was an auto include. I shall not use her. But her mini is great.

    I do not even own a named character. The closest I have come is a Dreadnought Forge Father and a 30k Praetor.

    I went to a tournament the other week at 1k points and people were bringing Magnus, Celestine and Guilliman. Defeating them at that points level is next to impossible.

    Well that a sad news indeed. At that low level of point they shoudl be banned.

    did those 3 will all their games (i.e. they didn't play each other?)

    It was a small tournament so only 20 players and 1000 points. The Celestine player finished mid table after losing a game to the Guilliman gunline. The others were ranked 2nd and 3rd with a take heavy guard list winning due to not playing against either of those armies and having a few victory points more overall (the Magnus and Guilliman armies weren't fully printed so lost a few points for that).

    The mission were the maelstrom ones I think - the ones with random card draws each turn.
