named characters gone?
« on: September 08, 2017, 09:01:49 PM »

So I watched a doom and gloom video today about the warscroll compendium update.  Did they really get rid of/homogenize most of the named characters?  Queek headtaker is just a warlord?  Wth have you done GW?  I was looking to get back into my rats, but most of AoS is basically just herohammer for me.  If I have to say "and this warlord will..", instead of queek devours your face... I am just disinterested.

I'm pretty sure they're still around, you just use the points cost from the 2016 book. They didn't include the legacy stuff in the 2017 update since it didn't really change.

Hopefully.  The new skaven warscroll compendium seems pretty hard and fast that they are to be substituted for their generic alternatives.

Maybe you'll have issues if you play in a tournament, but no one here is going to care, especially since these guys actually have rules.
