Sounds more like 4th. Special characters were very rarely used in 3rd Edition, except for being sawed apart to build other characters.

Then again GW shot itself in the foot with 4th and later editions because they nerfed their most expensive kits- transport vehicles- to the ground.

Other companies have hooked into including powerful character figures in their games, because it's a nice cash cow.
So it seems. Narrative and roleplaying always seem to play second fiddle to greed.
