Question regarding challenges
What constitutes a 'character'? I play with a group of guys in a friendly basement setting and have been arguing for a few weeks about this. I run a Khorne Daemonkin detachment with Necron allies and obviously want to get in as many challenges as I can for all those Khorney goodies. My standpoint is anything if your codex says something 'infantry (character)' or 'jump infantry (character)' ie. aspiring champions, veteran sergeants and the like, they are able to be challenged. I am being told that I can only challenge named independent characters, such as Dante for the Blood Angels, or Lilith for the Dark Eldar. The rule book only says 'nominate a character for the challenge'. Has anyone else run into this problem and come to an agreement?
