So I’ve decided to add a new weekly article to AoBG every Friday called “Friday Night Fights.” Essentially, every week I’ll pit special characters against each other in a round robin competition where only one will walk away!
So how it works —
I’ve gone through all the codices and picked a number of special characters from each (Summarized below) who will be pitted against each other randomly each each. With the loser being eliminated and the winner progressing to the next round (Similar to a pyramid pairing scheme).
Each match will be 6 rounds with each character counting as charging for 3 of the 6. Tie breakers will be settled by sudden death with a roll-off to see who counts as charging.
Abilities that must be activated during the SC’s turn will only be used when they charged while abilities that can be activated whenever will be used for each round.
A SC who fails their moral test and is caught in a sweeping advance automatically loses that round unless they have special rules otherwise (ATSKNF, etc) while a model that manages to escape after failing their moral test simply continues to fight with no penalty.
Combats will be physically rolled by myself to decide combat while the model favoured to win will be decided by mathhammer.
All rules for close combat outlined in the BRB will be followed!
AND NOW ON TO THE COMBATANTS!
-Calgar — Lysander — Cato Sicarius
-Ragnar Blackmane — Logan Grimnar — Arjac Rockfist
-Lord Kaldor Draigo — Grand Master Mordrak
-High Marshal Helbrecht
-Belial — Sammael
-Dante — Mephiston — Sanguinor
Chaos Space Marines
-Abaddon the Despoiler — Kharn the Betrayer — Typhus — Lucius the Eternal
-Asdrubael Vect — Lelith — Drazhar, Master of Blades
-Eldrad — Avatar
-Kugath — Skulltaker — Skarbrand
Sisters of Battle
-Colonel “Iron Hand” Straken with 4 veterans
So place your bets, who do you think will win? An alphastrike character like Dante or Vect or an attrition character like Lysander or Eldrad!?
