I have realised after reading the Witch Hunter and the Witch Hunter Captain careers that in the Warhammer 3 they have banished all Witch Hunters which do not belong to the Holy Order of Sigmar (i.e. no Witch Hunters of other cults, neither independent Witch Hunters)
Due to this I have started to design a new career (or career path) for other types of Witch Hunters using the background found in Warhammer 2. I have started with the Witch Hunter Mercenary (I hope I can come with a more original name) based on the stats and skills of the Witch Hunter career from Warhammer 2. Although at the moment I am aiming only for an Intermediate career instead of the high tier Witch Hunter of Warhammer 2.
I am finding some problems to flesh it due the limitation on the amount of characteristics (two) and skills (typically 5, some times 6 some times 4) a career gives access to (I am very bad at synthesizing).
Regarding the traits I am going for Combat, Intermediate, Rogue and fanatic (devout should not be there since this is not a cult tied Witch Hunter, I will correct it later).
For characteristics I think Willpower is a must if the Witch Hunter has to face the horrors of chaos. As for the other characteristic, based on the skills, I would think Intelligence is important, but since they are supposed to be good fighters, Strength or Agility are also relevant. I do not know which one to select, suggestions?
as for the skills, I have selected BS or WS to relfect their continuous training in combat
Discipline to resist the horrors
Folklore since they should be informed of things such as legends about witches or common knowledge about necromancy, chaos etc
Intuition for interrogatories and see through the deception of chaos cultist
Intimidate to represent the awe they inspire on most humans
Probably I could include BS and WS for a total of 6 skills without breaking the game, but I prefer to stick to the average. Any suggestions here?
And finally, for the career ability I have choosen to go along the path of terror inspiring and horror resisting type of Witch Hunter.
any idea would be welcome
