Faithful readers and longtime followers might remember this lovely bunch of pimps.
Last week, my buddy Eric brought all 8 of the primarchs ( well the released one anyway ) at the store and we held this tournament to figure out where each one stood in a one on one fight.
Obviously this is by no means scientific, as we took the primarch straight out of the book, and pitted them in close combat with 1 round of shooting from each. We rolled the pairings for the 1st round.
Read on for glory!
There was 8 of us, and we each had a primarch that fit our style or general persona. Obviously I got Mortarion, primarch of the death guard. Mortarion has a lot of sweet rules, none of them are good in a duel.
Winners of the 1st round were: Vulkan, Horus, Ferrus and Angron, leaving Mortarion to battle it out in the loser bracket with Fulgrim, Lorgar and Kurze.
Horus the Warmaster facing Angron, a duel of ages.
I don’t recall the exact matchups, but here’s the final standing:
Konrad, Vulkan and Fulgrim are the 2nd tier of duelling Primarchs at spot 4-5-6. Vulkan is really resilient but delivers no punch at all, while Fulgrim and Konrad are deadly but really soft.
Mortarion and Lorgar are 7-8, and despite Mortarion killing Lorgar 1 on 1, they are both worthy of duelling last place, as they have not much to offer in term of resilience or firepower, at least not in a duel context.
Then again, give me 2500 points of Death Guard to go with my Mortarion, I TOTALLY would’ve won this…
