Single most powerful mansized fighter: Aenarion
Most powerful monster: Probably Galrauch, despite his shitty shitty rules in the current codex.

I want to see Teclis vs Nagash in order to see who's the most powerful caster...

90% of people think they are above average.

Yeah but he only knows necromantic magic. Teclis knows every Lore for every wind of magic as well as High Magic (the most powerful school of spellcasting). He also banishes greater daemons for fun.

Fluff wise, best melee fighters have to be Slayers, and yes they pwn HE all day, four words; war of the beard, who won?

Tabletop wise, Swordmasters are absolutely insance in CC, especially against dwarfs; 2 Strength 6 attacks, always hitting first with re-rolls for misses. Work that one out.

Erm... Swordmasters are S5. They're base strength 3 with a GW. Only Nobles/princes/white lions get to S6. Go and have a chat with whoever you're playing against with High Elves, and point it out to them, and then watch as they scurry over to the nearest box of lions and purchase them. Swordmasters are insane in CC, it's a shame that most people with common sense will shoot the bujeezus out of them with their T3 and heavy armour only.

I think that Malekith, pre-burning, post-circlet is in the running. Stronger than 100 High Elf soldiers, and uses magic to do all kinds of awesome stuff (i.e. turning into a giant blue fireball comet thing).
