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,
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?
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?
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?
Oooh Would give me the push i need to get some of my Mini's painted!
Where abouts are you Stationed Mr P. Monkey? (it says NZ, just wondering thats all lol)
I'm Chch of South Island myself
Hmm, well i cant think of any 'gaping holes' right now, but how many players are you planning on having on at any one time?
Nice idea though 8Y
In the name of the Emperor and for the Glory of the Imperium... Gimme Back My Girlfriend! :(
Great idea, damn it making me want to come now
Check out Battle Arena rules maybe you can modify them slightly.

Yeah, but decent space wolf dreadnoughts will cost about 160.
So no worries there.
Turtles For the Turtle God!
Shells For the Shell Throne!
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?
