Default Ahriman v Eldrad

My friend runs Ahriman with 10 thousand sons and a sorcerer w/doombolt, would eldrad and a retinue of warlocks beat that? (I love fluff and was considering taking them for a mega psyker battle)

Eldrad might be able to make Ahriman's head explode with mind war. Doombolt hurts though.

agreed, but warlocks have a 4+ invun, not normal. I was hoping to combine this with fortune and just try to mind war ahriman to death.

If you want a mega psyker battle, why not make it an Apocalypse game? Then, you can have Eldrad Ulthran leading the Seer Council of Ulthwé against Ahriman leading a Thousand Sons Warcoven (located on page 3).

Runes of warding.... Ahriman has no pschic defence, whereas eldrad has a cheap upgrade that makes Ahriman wound himself.

And imagine 8 heavy flamer templates that re-roll to wound..... Followed up by 2+ to wound charge....

Eldrad honestly would beat Ahriman easily as a psyker. If ahriman didn't use psychic powers and kept at 24 inches and kept shooting, Eldrad and his locks may be in a bit more trouble.

Ahriman is too expensive for what he can do....

Thats why I said if arhiman gets it off.

They serve completely different roles though, so it no use comparing them.

Ahriman is an offensive psyker

eldrad is a support/defensive psyker.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Comparing fluffy armies that each would lead however: Ulthwe would win.

A T-sons army against an Ulthwe army would be in trouble, because T-sons are anti-MEq and Ulthwe (while occasionally being Mech) are not what they are good at fighting.

Yeah I really can't think of many armies I'd rather face with eldar than slow moving enemies with medium range firepower and a smattering of psyckers.
