Default Your favourite Warhammer Fantasy Character?

Hi all,

This question was inspired by my writing Pit Fighter. It struck me that though it is fantastic to invent your own fluff for characters, there are already some fantastic characters ready developed in the plethora of fluff that accompanies Warhammer Fantasy.

So the question; who (or what) is your favourite character in Warhammer Fantasy? It can be a character from past additions if you like, or an obscure one from a published add-on, but base your choice on fluff rather than the model!

I think mine is probably Aenarion the Defender of Ulthuan, I have always been drawn to tragic heroes. Aenarion's story of sacrifice, loss of his wife, rage and passion with which he fought the Daemon hordes and finally his death defending Ulthuan is a fantastic story I think.

Mine is Teclis. Started out as a sickly, ailing child without much of an outlook, then overpowered all that and grew up to become to most feared wizard in the entire known world. On top of that, he totally bitch-slapped the Witch King without breaking a sweat! His brother might be shaggin' the Everqueen, but that's only because she knows she's not cool enough for the Tecmeister.


And he casts irresistible force on any doubles.

Bah... Morkar, Archaon, Be'lakor, Wulfrik, Kholek, Vendhal Skullwarper, Gotrek, Sigmar, Morghur, Aenarion, Malekith, Gilles le Breton...

So many choices...

Morkar - the First Lord of the End Times. "IT'S NOT A TITLE! IT'S A PURPOSE!" How. Damn Sexy? He has Armour named after him, and captured the Bloodthirster U'zuhl into the Slayer Of Kings. Whoa mama. Took Sigmar to kill him. A Man-God, to kill a Mere Chaos Lord? Bahahaha.

Archaon - the 6th Sex Lord just doesn't have the same effect, but he's a beast. And to be honest, to create the largest, most deadly incursion since the First Coming of Chaos, and hold it all together, if only to get beaten at the end by a bloody Greenskin. Not to mention just twatting the reincursion of Sigmar all over the place.

Be'lakor - "God's, I'm better than You!" "No you're not - *zzzap*". He's the Greatest Daemon Prince, tricked the bonds of Tzeentch, and created his lair once again as the Shadowlord in Mordheim, took the next Lord of the End Times as a Vassal Creature, and managed to nearly destroy Albion, and unleash the Second Coming of Chaos, and the destruction of the World. Rawr.

Wulfrik - "God's, I'm better than You!" "No you're not - *zzzap*". Haha, nothing like having a Hero with the power of Lord turn up with 30 Marauders up your Arse. Oh, and he has a magic flying Long boat.

KHOLEK!!! - First Spawned of Krakanrok the Black, and the largest, toughest meanest largest toughest strongest largest toughest Dragon Ogre. With a big Hammer. And Can shoot lightning Bolts. And a big Hammer. Oooh, I'm all giddy.

Vendhal Skullwarper - Destroyed Wolfenburgs walls when a shit load of Hellcannons failed. And then dropped his Warped Skull, and got turned to ash by a Mad Fire wizard, and a Dog of war captain. pathetic. But he can blow up walls. That's cool.

Gotrek - "Thirsty? That's all your Getting Today, Daemon!" Ah yes. A 5 foot tall (including his crest) smelly, fat, drunk, Dwarf. Who can't be killed even though he tries. With a big axe. Move over Gimli.

Sigmar - Rep to the Big man. Was born while Orcs attacked. Had Orc blood on him and his Mum died giving Birth. And the Twin Tailed Comet. And a Big Hammer, Loin Cloth, and a chiselled boobs. Probably Oiled up, with blood spatters. Sounds like an 80's porn movie. has to be a win.

Morghur - Like Sigmar. But BAAAAAA-d. (Sorry.)

Aenarion - As squeek says.

Gilles le Breton - It's King Arthur - what's not to love. Oh... He represents the French... Er... Not so keen...

Mine is Hellebron, has been for a long time.
I think that was one of my biggest moments in WaR, getting to see how they modelled her as she hasn't had an actual figure in a long time now.

Generally though, I love the idea of this embittered old woman hating the 'leader' of her cult and wanting to get rid of her but can't as shes the Queen of her Kingdom. Plus I love the Witch Elves, Death Night, poisoned blades, lunatic woman fighting in bikini's. Hehe, just great stuff and she symbolizes them utterly. Oh and the Deathsword in her hands is monstrous.

I think I'd agree with Gilles le Breton being quite a cool character, not so keen on Sigmar though, he just strikes me as Arnie in Conan the Barbarian, meh.

Oddd, I can't seem to see any new threads in the Warhammer fluff section - just refreshed it a few times and can't see this thread. Most odd.

Anyways - to contribute I can't believe nobody has mentioned Lord Kroak yet - gets killed by a taskforce of 12 greater demons, then even after his death he's still hardcore!

What is there not to like :D

Ok my favorite cahracter I think is probably Genevieve, just because I have enjoyed all the novels she's been in. Something about a 'good' vampire is quite an interesting slant.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I had the same problem, but Jez has fixed it now so it should all work as normal.

Him and Lord Mazdamundi are my favorites. I mean controlling a stegadon 3 times the size of a normal stegadon by sheer force of will, AND still being the most powerful spell caster alive. That's just badass. And Lord Kroak wiping out untold billions of demons and killing 12 Greater Deamons, in his death scream, and final burst of power! Effectively breaking the daemonic siege on his temple city and driving Chaos back. AND then saying " Fuck it, I'm not dead yet!" And "living" on for another 6,000 years and still going strong. Both stories are just biblical!

got to be Luthor Huss for me.

the guy is half wracked by frenzied insanity and travels the land killing anyone he suspects of heresy whether or not they have ever even had a bad thought, starts making noises that the Grand Theoganist is corrupt, yet no one does anything.

he then finds 'Sigmar Reborn', assembles AN ARMY and travels to take on the Emperor then what happens? the Emperor gives Huss' pet lad Ghal Maraz because he is so afraid of Huss' army!

THAT is power!
