Are you sure on those numbers?
Read the Legion of the Damned by Rob Sanders. A Blood Crusade was stopped in it's tracks after killing an entire company of Excoriators (save for 1 character). The Excoriators did a fine job defending the cemetary world from the blood crusade, but like I said, they were almost killed to the last man. The Legion intervened and obliterated what was left (still countless chaos worshippers) with zero casualties on their end.
They are very powerful, yes. I dunno if they are borderline mythical or not... in an MMO's case however, it may be easier to leave them out. Remember that ghost army in the Lord of the Rings movie? like that. Imagine if all the garbage people say about Chuck Norris was real? yes they are that.
Power Level: Chuck Norris
Definitely not playable - they are Uber powerful, near mythical spectres. As a special event it could work!
This is pretty much exactly what they are. Legion of the Damned are basically the ghost army from Lord Of The Rings. Lore wise, they steamroll everyone.
I love the mystery about them. Theyve got the same magical mystic that the Emperor himself has. No one's even sure if theyre human or spirits.
They can recruit, it was in the LoTD short story bundle BL released a few months ago. They can also 'die', but evidently just get respawned when Centurius uses his skull artifact on anyone.
Perhaps they can just put them in the game and treat them like the rest of the chapters just to have them more or less because someone thinks they look freaking awesome and want to play them I know I probably would pick them just off appearances.
quiet! Like i said, myyyyysteryyyyy!
