Default Ka'Bandha and Angron at Terra

Kind of curious how they are going to pull this one off. You know these 2 are going to have to meet, how do you think that will go? If you think about it, them meeting could be the reason the traitors lost.

Ka'Bandha says "tastes great"
Angron responds "less filling"
(old beer commercial)

And than it is a battle to the death where 1000s of space marines die.

Angron's brother's know him, and give him space because they know he is bat shit crazy. But meeting another alpha male khorne daemon... well its on.

The way I would write it is that they do tear into each other and Ka'Bandha humbles him. Angron recognizes Ka'Bandha as his better. That sets the stage for Ka'Bandha's final defeat at the hands of Sanguinius. Which in Angron's mind means Sanguinius>Ka'Bandha>Angron.

In some way I would draw a parody between Russ and Guiliman escaping Angron's wrath, and Angron escaping Sanguinius's wrath. With Sanguinius I would focus on the rage it takes to beat the Blood Thirster, perhaps have it start raining blood as if this could be Sanguinius's ascension. With Angron I would write it as an utter humiliation. He was awed by Ka'Bandha, and to see him destroyed by Sanguinius is like he (Angron) has been pulled away from battle like Russ and Guiliman were by their men - except for Angron he was pulled away by his god.

There's enough going on during the siege, I'm sure they are not obliged to meet and share niceties.

I'm sorry, what?

Why do Ka'Bandha and Angron have to meet and subsequently fight each other?

It's a good idea, but may I offer a different twist on the tale good sir? Instead have Angron beat Ka'Bandha and humiliate him in front of his forces. Therefore when he goes up against Sanguinius he has nothing to loos and everything to gain. A fight to the death with Sanguinius to regain his lost Glory and Respect. Then Sanguinius kills him and Angron just laughs, using him as the "time old example," of why he is such a bad ass for all future generations of CSM.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

There is no reason for them to meet. As CotE says, there is so much going on during the siege already.

The intent and result behind this proposition make no sense to me. I hope that wasn't too rude; maybe I'm missing something vital, or maybe I'm too focused on Liverpool hopefully not blowing it against Cardiff and taking over the top spot in the Premier League... if only for a day or two.

Or maybe there's nothing to be gained by taking away from one the apex that Angron and his World Eaters reach before they are forced to retreat from Terra and - subsequently - see their Legion torn to pieces. Especially given that it adds nothing to Sanguinius' vengeance and moment of glory prior to his death at Horus' hands.

More Conjecture at this point I think Phoebus. The idea of how and when these mighty warriors will meet there end. Personally I'd love nothing more thna an epic show-down where Ka Bandha is beat down by Sanguinius and then, from the shadows, Horus just steps in and smacks Sanguinius over the head and kills him. That would be an amusing thought. :p

One of the most important battles in the history of Chaos.....and you think Khorne would allow Kha'bandha and Angron to fight. Also remember that Angron doesn't know the bloodthirster and probably doesn't give a shit. His father is in that castle. The progenitor of every horrible thing that ever happened to him. Why would he give a shit about another bloodthirster of thousands. Also, I'm sure Kha'Bandha would be more concerned with slaughtering Sanguinius or turning him. Angron's already on the team. Basically these creatures have absolutely NOTHING to discuss other than who gets to try and kill Sanguinius or the Emperor.

Their single minded purpose so pure for bloodletting ironically removes one another out of each others harms way?

I was going to say the same thing; if anything it should make them bitter rivals to kill whomever it is they so please to destroy. Thus the possibility of meeting, while perhaps low, is still there.
