Magic the Gathering card turned internet meme. Doom Blade just removes a non-black creature, slap, dead. It became a meme to say that all non-black creatures were irrelevant and crap because they died to Doom Blade, which was a stupid thing to say because everything died to Doom Blade.

I'm sure he's no match for nagash or a bloodthirster either, but that's because he's a different beast.
It's a release which doesn't improve the game at all. It's a model that has no effect on the meta. If you're not fast Cav (particularly Glade Riders, the strongest unit in the game; because 20" Shooting range, with Move and Shoot with a 2A/4+/4+/-/1 weapon on a unit with 14+D6" movement?).

It would be like 40K being released with Lords of War for the Imperials only with no ability to counter them. Or the maximum strength of weapons being limited to S7, with no armourbane, lance, melta, haywire, rending or gauss to help, and keeping Land Raiders at AV14.

Charandris Right, guessing the doom blade is a special character Killer or something?
Either way you can alway say that "X does to Y", the wood elf thing may die straight up to my butchers cast of the maw, or a chariot to the ace, or something.
And comparing the models is also totally obsolete, he's not a wood elf. Just like it'd be silly to compare him to a Saurus.

He's a nice chaos marauder model, and he does what he does. And he's not indestructible.

Nah, man, Dies to Doom Blade is totally a legitimate argument.

Personally, I like this Wulfrik-nee-Deathbringer to go with my horde of Marauders-nee-Bloodreavers.

Charandris Honestly the best use for him is to whack him among one of the khornate infantry units alongside a general and take the two extra attacks. With the big ace/gouged combo that's plus 6 damage as a posed to plus two, no brainier. He'll do more damage like that in a short time than a defensive one.
Even more advantageous when turn counts are taken into consideration.
Kill maim burn, he's Khorne.

SonofVulkan I guess the way he is holding the Skullgouger will make it easy to convert it into a Runemarked Shield. Depending if you want to be offensive or defensive.

Although, GW failed to put the option on the sprue.

Charandris For the sake of the model actually making some sense, I might swap the hand for one holding a head or other trophy, and ditch the punch dagger. And then say he has gouging horns to give the punch daggers effects.
That or swap his hand to one of the ones from the blood warriors and maybe give him a smaller axe.

Yeah, this model is entirely predicated on the rule-of-cool. It looks cool but makes little sense.

He has no shirt, chest armour, or helmet, but does have pants and knee armour. Doesn't make much sense.

He has a ginormous axe but based on the claw weapon's he handle could never hold the axe. Again, silly.
