Well in that case, id say a hive tyrant. I mean its cunning and intelligent enough to bring down any foe, it commands an army with no end to its numbers. It is a beast upon the battlefield and its tactics match even the greatest of tacticians. Also it can never truly die and learns from its mistakes.

Then I would say a Destroyer Lord, commands a fleet of unkillable (they just redownload into another body), highly modified machines that are able to calculate the most efficient means of death to all living things.

That and Mindshackle scarabs can cause any enemy to kill themselves/their armies/command in favor of the Necrons. The have mastered mind control and killing, nothing can beat it really.

They have somewhat of a seperate mind from the hivemind. It is so they can have more control of their armies. Or what I've read from the new dex lol cunning and instinct is part of his deadly form.

No, actually you specifically mentioned no: "Primarchs, Phoenix lords, special astartes characters as well as other special xeno/demon characters are off limits."

So entries such as the Tanith characters, Creed and assassins are all still valid by your guidelines. Think it's a little odd that all these should be out of contention and more from your, updated shall we say, rules, and yet you then pick Necrons overlords who are in command of potentially, thousands of worlds.

A woefully naive point of view in my opinion, but ok, whatever you think.

I'll go with whoever the current Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes is. Being the leader of the Emperors personal guard, I'm willing to bet he could successfully call on just about every single Astartes Chapter, including the Grey Knights, Guard Regiment, Titan Legion, Knight Household and every other asset the Imperium has if push really came to shove.

No they are not. Read what I wrote. I specifically stated no special characters. That INCLUDES Creed, Tanith characters and SPECIAL assassins. Nameless assassins are fine. Nameless Chaos Space Marines are fine, Nameless chapter masters are fine too, so are Ig Commisars and so on. I don't know what's so hard to grasp here.

Anyway, still sticking with the Necron Overlords, or possibly a Swarmlord.

Nowhere there do you mention non-Astartes, xeno or demon special characters.

Not hard to grasp at all. If you're going to be brash with people replying to your thread, then I'm going to get pedantic. Look at the exact wording you used in that quote of your opening post. You will see that I, am right, where as you, are wrong. End of.
