Default KoC's Ultimate Unit game #5 (Hero edition)

Welcome to KoC's Ultimate Unit game #5.

Rules are slightly changed (again) from the last game.
Be sure to read the details below!

You must think of a single model. The model can either be a character from any FOC choice (including things like Marbo), or else a single HQ model (such as a Chaos Lord or a Warboss).
You can NOT take a special character that is normally purchased as an upgrade like Lukas or Telion.
No retinues are allowed. You can only have the 1 model.
NO VEHICLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You have 200 points to spend on the model.

No reserves, deep strike, or outflank.

No terrain.

Send the details of the unit to me via PM, and you will be entered into the tournament.

Players will be randomly paired, and play in a knockout-style tournament until there is 1 person left.
The method of battle i will be using is as followed...

ROUND 1
- Units are placed exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 1 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed back exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 2 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed in base-to-base with unit 1 counting as charging.

ROUND 2
- Units are placed exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 2 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed back exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 1 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed in base-to-base with unit 2 counting as charging.

If a unit rapid-fires, then it will be unable to gain the benefits of charging that round (unless it has a special rule allowing it to).

Victory points will be calculated on a "per-wound" basis, and added up from both rounds to calculate a winner.
If both units are basically tied from both rounds, then i will run the battle a second time.
All shooting and combat will be rolled by me with dice.

Blast weapons have a 66% chance to hit.
Large Blast weapons have a 75% chance to hit.
Any Template weapons will count as hitting, providing they moved at least 6".


The number of players will be either 32, 48, or 64.
If the entries slow right down at 32, ill keep it at that. If they keep coming in, then ill go all the way up to 64.

The amount of +rep and the positions that qualify for +rep will be announced when the entries close.

Good luck everyone!

I think this contest will be the most interesting one yet. So many potent combinations for HQ's between the codices.

Entry entered. Although I dont quite think mine is a "hero" in the proper sense of the word. Id say my entry is a hero to the race, but not a hero

So he's an Ork with gigantic fists?

So what do you mean by 'character'?
Are MCs allowed? Is the only restriction that it has to be a single model, non-vehicle unit?

I suppose.
Go for it.
As long as its either a Character, or a HQ choice.
So no Carnifex's or Wraithlords for example, but Hive Tyrants or Doom of Malan'tai is allowed.
