First one, I'll bet on Wolf Priest. I3 5++ versus I4 4++, plus the usual Chaplain shenanigans? I somewhat doubt Straken getting through this.

Second, it's Emperor's Champion. I don't even care if he's up against almost guaranteed instadeath powerklawing, the Emperor's Champion accepts any challenge, no matter the odds. Only in death does duty end!

Straken simply because he's hardcore and the Rune Priest... isn't.

Big Mek because with the armour saves the contestants have in the fight, the claw will beat the sword. Plus Instant Death always helps. Razz

Straken is a monster in CC.
Big Mek has the better odds.

Ima go with the crowd votes here and say Straken and Big Mek as well. Though I hope in the next division we see a Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun for lolz.

I like Space Wolves, but Straken is too badass to lose.
I'm betting on the Mek for the other match.

First off - vote tallies and point totals

As always - point out anything I missed or got wrong.

=============================

Archon Farath Mure - 3 - Straken Big Mek
Aroshamash - 3 -
Barking Agatha - 1 -
Cavash - 4 - Straken Big Mek
Darkgreen Pirate - 2 - Straken Big Mek
Devilish - 2 - Wolf Priest Big Mek
Enfernux - 2 - Straken Big Mek
fatyl5 - 3 -
Komm - 2 -
KnightSeerValkia - 1 -
Lord Clazaryn - 2 -
Mushkilla - 2 - Straken Big Mek
NiteOwl - 2 - Straken Big Mek
Nomic - 2 - Straken Big Mek
PartridgeKing - 3 - Straken Big Mek

Siticus the Ancient - 3 - Wolf Priest Emperor's Champion
Starstrider - 1 - Straken Big Mek
The_Burning_Eye - 3 -
Tiri Rana - 3 - Straken Big Mek
Zanais - 2 -

A couple of decent moves up the ladder this last round. Cavash currently holds the lead, but the field is still too tight for any relaxing at the top.

I think the BT weapon is only ap3. He has a hard time wounding the Mek and needs multiple wounds to kill him.
He actually wounds very easily - the Mek's advantage is his 2+ save however.
You are correct that the Champ's sword is only AP 3 though, and that is a big deal now (under 5th edition rules I don't think this fight would be half so heavily favoring the Big Mek in the votes).

@Mushkilla wrote:
And he doesn't have an invulnerable save from shooting... Even if he makes it through this round he won't last long.
His 2+ save (and option of 5+ cover save) should do him pretty well though, his bracket is relatively safe for shooting threats unless the Archon or Autarch makes the semi-finals.

I'll admit Emperor's Champ vs. Chaos Lord would be a nice matchup though.

Hopefully not too late for me to join in...
You are never too late - and you're even hoping in at a relatively safe point to do so as far as still being in contention for a win.

If I remember right uphold the honour of the emperor prevents him from using cover. Might have got FAQed I played Templar a long time ago. Sad

You may be right - shouldn't matter in this fight though.

Straken will win.
The other match up is tougher but I think the Big Mek should win.

By the way, this has been a really cool idea Thor, thanks.

Big Mek and Straken

Sadly if only Straken was T3 like a normal guardsmen, then the wolfpriest would have a chance

Definitely Straken, and I'm not too sure for the second, both have their strong points. I'll just say the Big Mek though, as it's easier for the Big Mek to sneak that one attack through than the Champion to repeatedly break through the armour.

I'm voting for the Big Mek and Straken . I love how Thor includes a win to loss table even though if they lose, they die and get knocked out of the competition...

It will matter if/when I manage the middleweight division - better records will be more likely to be allowed to show up to represent in those battles.

Also, thank you very much to those digging the battles, that doth please me greatly.

The current plan is to post the batrep sometime mid/late next week and to get the pre-battle for the next one up before/on the weekend. I'll be heading out of country the 16th-27th so hopefully I'll manage to leave you all debating an upcoming battle during that wait.

Straken, sure.

I think the Emp's Champion has a good chance against a Mek though, big or not. Emperor's Champion.

Thor, will the winner of the lightweight division automatically be given the opportunity to fight in the middleweight division?

Yes, that's the current plot. (and most of the entrants are capable of making that weight class as well, so it's an easy shift)

I'm not sure if I'd hold my breath on that score if I were you - it's not exactly the best Ork build for this setup.

My intention is to have the batrep up on Thursday.

New Pre-battle up sometime...thereafter...theoretically prior to my departure on Sunday, so probably Saturday as long as all works out.
