Default AoD Discussion

Or Arena of Death. Some of you may remember a topic about this aaaaages ago, and I just wondered if anyone would want to participate in a new one. if anyone wants the rules, i can post them, but I'd need 4, 8 or 16 people (or 32, but I wouldn't think that that many people would want to do it) to want to do it.

Copied from an age old PM:

Everyone that enters creates a character out of any codex, they don't have to have the model, or even the army, just the codex so that they can make the character.

So, everyone takes a character, and gives it weapons and wargear (lets say up to 150pts in total, the character and the wargear), and then the characters are randomly selected to battle each other 1 vs 1.

So what happens is, the 2 characters start 6" away from each other, and they have 1 round of shooting and then an infinite amount of assault phases until 1 dies. The other entrant goes through to the next round, its a knockout toruney.

To make it fair, there are no special characters, and no Instant Death from shooting. If its a case where you would suffer Instant Death, you lose all but 1 of your wounds.

So, here it is:

1.Select a character from any codex (it must be an actual codex, or rules in Chapter Approved, no Harlies!) and give it weapons and wargear. The total cost can't be greater than 150pts. It must come from the HQ section.

2.There is no wound limit, but the character must be able to choose wargear (no Great unclean ones, Avatars etc) even though they fit in the pts limit.

3.Submit your characters to me.

4.I randomly select entries to fight each other (I play the games out with dice).

5.The winner of each game advances into the next round, and the loser is knocked out of the tourney.

6.The final winner is the Arena Champion. The best number of entries would be 8 or 16.

So, we each take a HQ selection and give them wargear and weapons that they're allowed to take, right? For a second I thought you meant we had to pick actual Characters...

Sounds cool, I'm game .

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

If someone had a Necron Lord as their choice, the WBB roll would be in effect right? If they die, they may come back?

Lords come back, but only if they have a Res Orb. Also, Palatines and Canoness' test on their Ld for Faith points.

EDIT: Also, there's another category, where you use 1 wound characters and the following restrictions:
50pts maximum
1 wound only
No wargear that modifies you stats to have more than 1 wound
No 2+ saves
No ap 2 or 1 weapons (after all, it's supposed to be an arena, not a shootout)
There is however, no limit to the shots that a weapon can have. 1 wound characters also includes things like Enginseers, Apothecaries, BA Techmarines, mutated Nids etc, just as long as they follow the rules.

How would that work for Imperial Guardsmen who have little chance of winning in combat?

And how does that work for an Acolyte in Power Armour with nought ut a Mancatcher and a Laspistol? I don't know, but it sure as hell kicked the crap out of everyone else in the last AoD I was in.

Actually you can get some real nasty IG, like Rough Rider Veterans, Hardened Veteran Sergeants and Enginseers. Or, if you think you're lucky enough, go with a regular Veteran Sergeant.
