I'm running a game that averages between 4-6 players and I'm trying to figure out how to create NPC's for them to fight as I don't always like to use teh stock characters provided.
Does anyone have a general system that they use to create these npcs?
I know that the BC book has the troops/elite/masters example but they don't really say how to create an NPC from scratch. They do provide a short explanation of an appropriate number of troops/elite/masters vs a human/chaos marine but after that section it goes on to talk about hordes.
Dark heresy provided a xeno generator as part of one of the early adventures after its release, but I haven't been able to find anything like that for black crusade.
I want to provide a challenging combat engagement for my players but I don't want them to feel like they are just walking through the encounters I have them facing.
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated,
