Default Best CC HQ?

I really like my chaplain with thunder hammer. I know he's not the best but making his squad re-roll to hit on th echarge really helps my army out. So whats the best CC hq? Either individually ie as in dueling someone or as in the chaplain helpin out your armies

I like my BA chplain with dual lightning claws. Really nice if I can get the charge in and get +1 S and WS from his furious charge.

But then, my brother's daemon prince is pretty damned scary in CC. Berserker glaive, high strength, monsterous creature, mutation, feel no pain, etc. He ends up with something like 9 attacks on a charge while my chaplain maxes out at 6 on charge

World Eaters Daemon prince is by far the best close combat HQ choice. A space Mairne Librarian with Veil of Time is a close second.

A fair sized Death Company (8-9 + Chaplain) should be able to take him down though.

Coming in at only slightly more too - 217 standard.

We've run a couple 'duels'. It all comes down to who gets the charge. If my DC charge, he's toast. If Super Killguy charges, I can kiss most of my DC goodbye.

Your brother should drop the Berserker Glaive and give the DP wings and the Axe of Khorne. My DP has dished out as many as 12 attacks before from the Axe of Khorne. I hope to get it higher one day.

DE Archon, only CC HQ to be able to kill it is a DP with dreadaxe, which costs almost double as much.
