    Challenges

    Quick question, Can a single character challenge another single character? Say.. Karl Franz on griffon challenge Lord Kroc-gar on his carnasaur. Both characters are not in any units, just by themselves (and there mounts obviously). So is that just a normal fight? or is it a challenge?

    Sure, you can challenge. All of the reasons I know of for doing it are fairly beardy and won't get you in good with your friends, but it's fine by the rules! =)

    The overkill bonus, potentially (See the combat res section for details).


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    Well, I shouldn't be so quick to call things 'beardy.' Using an item as it was designed to be used is just playing the game. If you leave your beefy character hanging out somewhere and he gets plowed by Van Horstmann's, don't be so careless with your characters.

    I was thinking more of tricks involving being locked into hitting that character. e.g., I know a particular character doesn't have a magic weapon for whatever reason. Challenge him with a banshee or spectral vampire. He's now locked in a combat with a model he's incapable of hurting. Pile a horde of zombies on the side for a nice +6 combat res that can't be hit. And so on.

    That seems no less fair to me than having the single character win the combat by slaughtering said zombies and killing the other character with combat res.
    Put the box on the table by the window in the kitchen.

    /shrug, My perception was that the hazards of combat res are a built in and intended liability for undead players who let their characters go solo (and ethereal models in particular), and the challenge mechanism was a clever redirection of a rule in order to circumvent it =)

    Hence that sort of thing is always subjective, and the OP has long since been answered, so I will shut my trap.
