hi i had 2 questions i'm having a little trouble clearly resolving.

1. as far as ork warbosses go, i see none of the generic ones sold have certain upgrades on them (i.e. cybork, mega armor, etc). What would be the best way to put these pieces of wargear on my warboss? or are there any i could claim he has but not actually show? (short of like megaarmor of course). i'm playing house games only no tourny's. i know we could just let it slide but i'd like to do the best i could to show what my models have, any suggestions?

2. i played years ago so maybe this has changed or maybe i misunderstood the whole time. but as far as special named characters go (i.e. abadon and such) are these characters automatically allowed for play now (or always?) and i'm asking strictly in a rule sense i know just about anything can be done as long as players agree on it, but after reading the 5th edition rule book, unless i just overlooked it, it niether claims nor denies the use of special characters directly though it does make me believe that you're just as welcome to use Abadon if you wanted to instead of a generic chaos lord.

any help with this would be much appreciated.

1. Afaik there are 4 kinds of warbosses easily accessible, the 2 sold in blisters(1 with attack squig and one with a big choppa), the one in the assault on black reach kit (with a power claw) and the forgeworld model on a bike.
If you take the power claw one you almost automatically can also claim cyborg due to the way it replaces a hand. Besides that you can use the nob kit to loot some parts if you want some variety, all tho for the use of arms or so you'll have to buff them up a bit with green stuff for them to look proppa.
For the mega armor there is no model atm so if you want one in a suit you will have to mod some mega armored nobs or change up the ghazghkull model a bit.

2. You can take named characters for anny HQ slot you want (altho their unique so you cant take 2 ghazghkull's) you can take them with a warboss or a big mek along with them or only the named character.
There are no restrictions unless their noted with the rules of the characters themselves.
