At the moment, I'm a big fan of Nagash, though I still have to pick up and read the novel on him. I like everything I know so far though.

Also Archaon. He's just badass on a stick.

I really like the Old Chaos characters the ones in Champions of Chaos.
Amon Charki (sp) the lord of Change was awesome. He has nearly complete control over time and peoples fate. I also liked Engrimm Van Horstmann (Sp) because he had a two headed dragon and corrupted a massive part of the Order before he fled to the Realm of Chaos.

Caradryn of the High Elves is, by far, my favorite.

Once a wayward playboy and womanizer, he is now enlightened and guided by Asuryan; he knows all that was, all that is, and all that ever shall be, yet is bound to silence. Asuryan guides and protects him, and should his considerable prowess in combat fail him, Asuryan will cast down his wrath upon the foolish soul who smote him. After that, Asuryan will allow Caradryn to rise from death, like all other Phoenix Guard (allegedly, of course) to continue his service in the names of Asuryan and the Phoenix Crown.

"In the eyes of the Elves of Ulthuan there exists no fear, only grim determination.

Until one has witnessed them in combat, one cannot comprehend the power that they possess."

Malus Darkblade - Manages to keep on ticking and fighting on even though the universe seems to constantly shit on him. You are always on his side even though he is an utter evil bastard.

Druchii in space: Just "met" Hellebron, Malekith and Morathi in W.A.R. yesterday (I play a Disciple of Khaine so had to pay my respects). I love how Malekith seems like a put upon teenager that is stuck hanging around with the boss Orc because his mum is having a "grown ups talk" with the chaos lord.

Skulltaker is freaking rad. Sure he doesnt have much of a personality being a daemon and all but he is the epitome of hardcore. He rides around challenging champions to single combat, kills them, pulls their head off and then flames shoot out of his hands to melt the flesh off of it to make a nice trophy. And once all the "brave" champions in the area are dead or hiding like little bitches he rides on to challenge more champions in another area.

And Archaon. his title is enough to make him awesome "Lord of the End Times" Whenever I picture him I see him like Sauron in the LoTR movies in the beginning where hes just wading through a battle field nonchalantly swinging from side to side killing 4 or 5 guys with each stroke. Soooooo very metal!

Notlob.

Never heard of him? Pah. Younglings. He was the first orckish artillery expert, inventing the bolt thrower (or, more likely, nicking it off some stunties) back in the days when orcs could actually crew bolt-throwers. He was one of the Orc warlords who held Black Fire Pass at the time of Harboth of the Black Mountain.

What do you mean, you don't know who Harboth of the Black Mountain is?

Reading Malus Darkblade at the moment; he's a great character and because there are 5 novels for him, you know him a little better than the standard army book fluff. I have to say though, Aenarion is an absolutely awesome character and the artwork of him fighting a huge Daemon in the High Elf army book just sums up his power. I'd like Malekith a hell of a lot more if the Dark Elves were a little more successful under his reign. He does seem like a bit of a mummy's boy with the way it's written about him, yet he's supposed to be scarily powerful.

the dark elves are successful-big M has held the throne of naggaroth for 5000 years-in that time there have been 5 phionex kings, some of them dead at his hand. they feel that they are unccsesful as the high elves still live, but in reality the dark elves are much better (the fact that the high elves have been affected by chaos in the form of infertility and the dark elves havent is also a factor.)

I suppose, but don't forget, some of those Kings chose to die. Malekith is sticking round sulking lol. For a start, the High Elves still hold the port of Arnheim in Naggarond - what's that all about?
