Just to get the arena area a bit more active, I wanted to make a post and came up with this. The aim is to post a character here using whatever race you want, using magic items from whatever race you want. So you could have a Chaos Lord wielding a High Elf sword. The aim is to build the most rediculous character you can. The following rules apply:
-There is no point limit on the magic items allowed so you could in theory have 200 points worth of magic items if you wanted. Only limit is no Daemon Princes or Greater Daemons. In terms of Dwarves being able to make some insane items they are limited to 2 runes per item rather than the usual 3.
-Choose one race so an Ogre Hunter or Black Orc Warboss...whatever you want really
-Choose your set up using magic items from any army book you want
-Normal restrictions on magic items apply so only one magic weapon, one magic armour etc
-Unless you are a Daemon you can't select daemonic items, Vampire(you can't select vampiric powers) or Warrior of Chaos(you cant select Marks of Chaos or gifts of the gods). Same applies to Khainite powers. However, Ogre Big Names can be used on anyone. Only 1 of the listed items may be chosen.
-No Dwarf Runes on Magic Items
-Items that have restrictions such as "only Goblins may use item" no longer apply. Only on foot/mounted restrictions still apply
-Only mounts allowed to race of your character may be used
• Goblin Warbosses (Night Goblins included) may go up to 20 points over their magic item limit providing that they do not exceed 250 pts in total.
• Skink Chieftans may go up to 20 points over their magic item limit providing that they do not exceed 250 pts in total.
• Skaven Warlords may go up to 20 points over their magic item limit providing that they do not exceed 250 pts in total. The Appendix Plague Lord is no longer permitted.
• Vampires get 35pts extra – they may not exceed their magic item limit.
• Tomb Kings get 25 points extra, they may not exceed their magic item limit.
• Empire characters that do not take a Runefang may go up to 20pts over the magic item limit providing that they do not exceed 250 points in total.
• Wood Elf characters get 20 points extra; they may not exceed their magic item limit.
• Dark Elf Assassins are counted as Hero choices for all intents and purposes.
• Bretonnians must pray to gain the Blessing, allowing their opponent to charge them and gain all the benefits thereof in the first round of each combat. A Bretonnian player who does not wish to pray should specify this before the match is rolled.
The following items are banned, they are found to be too powerful or have an unfair advantage in an Arena of Death game.
- Tress of Isolde
- Sword of Fate
- Van Horstmann's Speculum
- The Daemon Sword
- The Fellblade
- The Bane Head
- The Grudge Rune
- Kurbog's Curmudgeonly Klobbera
- Virtue of Confidence
- Annoyance of Netlings
- Palanquin mount
- Pendant of Kaeleth
- Any item that includes in its rules "nominate one enemy character" is illegal.
- NO MAGIC OR BOUND ITEMS
I think that covers everything. Anyway, this will simply be a voting thing so if everyone chucks a character in, i'll draw up a tournament tree in photoshop or something. If someone thinks this contravenes the limited Arena Rules then i wont do it, but this is not an arena because there won't be write ups or anything, just literally people voting for what they think would win. So yeah, if you have a problem with it, just say.
Anyway here is my entrant:
Name: Garshok the Head Smasher
-Weapon: Basha's Blood Axe
-Armour: Heavy Armour, Shield (Master Rune of Adamant, x2 Rune of Fortitude)
-Talisman: Master Rune of Spite, Rune of Warding,
-Enchanted Item: Tricksy Trinket
-Other: Mark of Nurgle(BoC), Big Name Mawseeker
Offence Summary: 6 to 11 Attacks, WS6, I5, S5 (6 for first round)
Defence Summary: T7, W7, 4+ Armour, 4+ Ward
Misc. Summary: 1 Reroll(would use on Ward), Ld 9, Ignore Ward Saves
1. Garshok the Head Smasher - robtheguru
My Arena Champions: Kharn'eth The Bloodcleaver and Gorzag Iron Jaw
I don't mean to be a drag, but shouldn't you wait to see if you get 16 people before entering a character of your own? Also, I think you have another arena goin on in Rezephua which has yet to launch.
I am heading off to the Peace Corps. It is bery likely I will not be back. Good luck to all of you endeavors.
However, since you did reserve a spot, it would be unethical to lock this thread. I'll have to assume you can juggle real life with two arenas.
ED: If, however, you're after characters and I'm in a character-making mood, here's what I got:
Vambraces of Defence
Sea Dragon Cloak
Virtue of the Knightly Temper
Mawseeker Big Name
Here's what he has:
4 WS7 attacks at I7 iirc; have Hatred; all hits wound automatically with no armour or ward saves allowed; for each wound he does on the charge, he gets to make an extra attack (with hatred, as it's still in the first round).
-1+ armour save (yes, a better save than 0+ - on an elf) that is re-rollable; T4, magic weapons have no effect whatsoever on him, 4+ ward.
On the downside, he has Stupidity.
ED2: I think the equalisers are a little moot in this arena .

Alright, now I'm just a bit confused. We currently have:
Daelrog's Summer Arena
Avatar's Off Seasonal Arena (waiting for last entrant)
Tux's Arena (just started yesterday)
I'm pretty sure that makes 4 user arenas at the moment. Add to that that Rob, your name is below mine on the Reservation page...
I've been waiting for the 3 arenas that I listed to start or reach half-way points, and Dael's to end before asking for the massive sign-up for mine. Now I've got to add one more to the list.
or i'll just unlock this and rename it an off seasonal arena fixing the problem entirely
after all, avatar's arena is not an off seasonal, its a user arena.
technically speaking we are leaving summer now so its off seasonal time.
spambot kill tally: 79
[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
I may join, but I think that letting contestants take whatever they want from whatever they want is a little stupid, ecspecially with no points limit. I think either a points limit should be added or we can only take magic items from the characters' army book ie; only dwarves may take runes, and they may not take anything else.
