I think that's fair. He's got much the same potential as before, but now his suppressing powers are potentially counter-able by an opponent. So the slight cost reduction is probably about right.

Updates from the Discord:

  • Godslayer psychic Mastery Levels will all be using the discounted 15 points/level to account for their completely defensive nature and limited application (A note will need to be added to the Godslayers rule page somewhere to ensure that Librarian Consuls also get this reduced rate.
  • After some discussion Godslayer Librarians will be unchanged and have full use of their Force Weapons. The fluff behind their weapons will be unrelated to regular force weapons (WIP), but they will function identically from a rules perspective.
  • Taking all this into account Alexander has been double checked and now stands at 185 points as stated previously.

With Alexander passing muster, we return to Karl Volkov. In truth, I know little of his character, except he is Zbruchan and yet another man who was with Koschei before the Emperor arrived. Crunch shows that he's one of the muggles of his legion.

 

And he's still incredibly pricey. Nothing has changed from last time, so he needs no revision, but I'm nervous about the average special character cost compared to the canon field. 

 

That means we come to the Dreamer himself. As always, Primarchs are tricky beasts since there's no such thing as a 'default' Primarch. Originally, he was compared to Roboute, but we're really trying to translate him from the Pariah to the Psyker system. Just adding up all of the points from the Pariah stuff comes to a total of 60 points. 

 

Like Alexander K., Koschei wields no Force weapon so skips the Force debate. That also means it's purely calculating the mastery levels. Four levels with the discount is... 60 points. Huh, go figure.

 

Unlike last time I did a full run, Koschei has grenades, but that was addressed in a couple of posts later. It was determined that Koschei would have grenades and be priced at a flat 100 points given the Lorgar calculation. 

 

So, really, the only debate is what powers should Koschei have. Grifft has given him Empyreal Shield (4++ against psychic powers), Nullification Field (Ranged DtW), Quiet the Tempest (Psyker has to reroll a successful manifestation roll), Rend the Veil (+2 to Perils roll), and the Invisible Weight (+1 to manifestation rolls). 

 

I have no issues with these choices. This all means that Koschei simply needs to be approved by Blind for the Godslayers to be completed. Blind?
