Xarl's final fight was brutal. I felt bruised afterwards.

Russ Vs. Magnus is perhaps my favourite. I also liked the Mournival's final duel on Isstvan III and Corax butchering the Gal Vorbak. Oh, and I think there was an early scene of the Custodians doing their thing in The First Heretic which hammered home their difference from Astartes nicely.

I like the Imperial Guard versus pretty much anyone. I like the thought of a normal human standing up to the horrors of the galaxy but don't get me wrong I do like a good Astartes brawl as well.

It's very brief, but Chayne against Alpharius in Legion is kinda cool -

But for sheer epic scale and context you can't beat the Mournival showdown, with the result an illustration for the way things are going.

Bjorn and the other Wolves wading in to Magnus in Battle of the Fang also shows a fair amount of balls!

I just finished Ahriman and at the end there is a very cool fight between en thousand son and a space marine with a lot of bionics, epic, made me think of schorpion in mortal combat, 'get over here', so cool

My favourite kind of fight is when an author gets Eldar right. They can fight so gracefully.

On this vein of thought I liked the Solitaire's performance against the Keeper of Secrets in Path of the Outcast as well as Hradhiri's "death" in The Masque of Vyle.

Outside of Eldar that fight between Grammaticus and the Lucifer Black stands out. The idea of an unarmed human taking down a Lucifer Black so easily was brutal to read. Not to mention the clinical finishing.

I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I forget which novel that was in where Gaunt and a few other's ended up being visited by some traitor marines - that was a good fight!

I'd also throw in:

Fulgrim Vs Eldar Avatar (somewhere during Fulgrim).

Sharrowkyn Vs Lucius (however - after building up Lucius as one of the 'best' swordsmen the Legions had to offer over what, 2 novels and several shorts - a random does that. Didn't sit to well with me afterwards. Any thoughts?).

I'm sorry to mention Gaunt's Ghosts again. "Ven" Mkvenner

Moments that amused me; Sevatar Prince of Crows

(When running into Alastor Rushal "The Raven" on the Invincible Reason)
"You won't believe how I got here."

(When told that a Commodore has survived an ambush and is now the highest ranking survivor.)
"That makes him the new fleet admiral. Offer him my insincere congratulations on a rank he earned purely by being the last naval officer standing. But what's the bad news?"

Top 5 for me....

1. Xarl vs Genesis marine champion
2. Russ vs. Magnus
3. Sharrowkin vs Lucius
4. Sanguinius vs Blood thirster
5. Grammaticus vs Lucifer Black
