Eriochrome (see 'comments') has quite rightly noted that I've muddled my words: apologies. What follows is the corrected version (corrections in red). Thanks, Eriochrome!
Now as a rule, I don't use unique characters (UCs) for a number of reasons. They don't fit with my army, I often dislike the models and I can spend the points elsewhere. Still, it would appear that the current trend for new codex releases is likely to make UCs a more central feature (albeit one open to interpretation) so I was wondering: anyone interested in some rules I've drafted for an UC of my own?
