Overlord

Tue Mar 22, 2011 6:03 am

Hello.
I've read the Overlord rule multiple times now but this question I have just doesn't seem to be answered by it.
The rule reads:
Sauron and many of his chief lieutenants rule through fear and intimidation...

I've looked at all the profile entries and the only models with the Overlord rule seems to be Gothmog and Durburz. There might be more but those really don't matter right now. My question is, why doesn't Sauron, the Dark Lord of Mordor have this rule if it specifically states it in the rules? Is this a mistake on the rules part or the profile part (or both)?
Thanks!

They don't have the rule because their profiles don't have the rule? ;)

Ask GW, we don't have answers to that one.

Where do I ask GW about these type of questions? I'm sure I'll think of other questions to ask.

You don't ask GW those questions, I just said it to underline the fact that nobody knows. The rulebook is full of loopholes but if it hasn't been changed by FAQ/Errata then it is correct. Fluff has nothing to do with actual rules.

Alright. Could I use it as a house rule, that Sauron has the Overlord rule?
