    Hero Battle Promotion

    Some of you might be aware that when I'm not painting Crimson Fists and whining about my degree I work at my local independent retailer. Currently I'm planning an afternoon promotion where customers bring in a 40k character model and duke it out in a little arena of toy soldier fisticuffs.

    Provisional rules are-

    Must be a painted and based 40k figure,

    No more than 150pts from any current codex,

    One model only! No honour guards, command squads, entourages or hangers-on,

    WYSIWYG,

    No special characters (special character models can be used to represent regular heroes, though),

    First turn decided by 1d6+ I value of the hero.

    Fights will take place in a 24"x24" arena with 4 small pillars (nowhere to hide!),

    Apart from that all normal 40k rules apply.



    So... Can anyone see any gaping holes in this idea? If so, what? Also- what character builds would you guys take?


    Thanks!

    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!

    Will there be a points limit? It sounds awesome, tbh I wish GW would do character duke-it-outs Though gaping holes would be that I would take a nice fluffy character and get owned by some ridiculously tooled out powergamer, perhaps cheese preventions would need to be put in place?

    150pt limit. And because it's just one character and not an army nor tournament as such then really it's all about the character buit for power. cheese it up, I say.

    My GW is running a 150pt Warhammer Quest-esque game tommorow, hero + small retinue. 150pt seems like a nice limit that forces you to play the 'aspiring hero' role instead of the 'that thing on my trophy rack? It's a part of the last planet I ate' style characters. What about mounts + BSBs, or ranged attack/magic?

    Check out Battle Arena rules maybe you can modify them slightly.

    Well, considering this is 40K, there isn't much need to include these in the rules, short of ranged attacks, which seem pretty simple to me.

    Yeah, but decent space wolf dreadnoughts will cost about 160.
    So no worries there.

    Hah, this actually sounds really entertaining. Who do you all think would be the "best"?

    The three that came immediately to mind for me were Daemon Prince with lash, Hive Tyrant, and Crisis Suit Commander. Maybe the new ork Boss on Bike?
