Default Indian in the cupboard – 40k style

Ok so if we haven't all seen the movie, boy has magic cupboard, if you put toys in the cupboard, lock it, unlock it and open, the toys come to life. My question. If we were to put every 40k miniature in the cupboard lock it, unlock it, then leave it, who would be the last-miniature-standing? Lets say no titans or apocalypse models, just to keep it interesting

It's actually a book series. The film was based on the first. Just FYI.

Yep well thats my mistake, sorry about that. I may have to say something C'tan, maybe nightbringer, but that could just be cause he creeps me out.

Add to that the fact he/she/it is a God... With a capital G for emphasis. :

I would say the devceiver for this reason:

The night bringer will rush forwards to attack the enemy attracting attention meaning it attracts fire eventually destroying it self. The deceiver will use illusions to hide it self and instead of attacking directly it is the one who whispers In the ear of another making them do it's without ever revealing itself.

Woot 700th post- i seem to be behind compared to most members, :-X

I reckon the Avatar would have a good chance, but then again, he is sort of a God too.

A fully kitted-out Carnifex can be nasty. Granted I have never seen one fight any of the C'tan, but it would be a problem for the more mundane (read: non-C'tan nor Daemon-possessed Statue) models.

Are we working on the assumption that there just plastic/metal models?

Or do they really really come to life and have the powers etc that they do in the game?

If there just plastic/metal then then an old school metal Dreadnought (the perfect dreadsock kind) would be clearing up everything else.

Otherwise, I'm not sure.

Probably The Avatar though.

The cupboard is supposed to make them real. So if a model is sculpted plastic depicting metal, then it will become metal. Living models will become real flesh and blood and so on.

After a brief moment of thinking, I will have to switch my vote to the C'tan. If their weakness is the warp and psychics, I think that we are all in trouble if someone brings one to life, as I am not sure a 'warp' exists in our reality. Given their ability to change shape and apparently size as well, there is an extreme possibility that if someone were to put a C'tan in the cupboard and bring it to life, it would probably doom all human life as we know it.

The Avatar could possibly kill it before it got out of hand, but how long can an Avatar last on a single sacrificed Eldar soul before it becomes inert?

My blood angels would mop up the rest of the 40k models as a warmup, due to sheer numbers. They would then continue on to the giant pile of Brettonians, resulting in wholesale slaughter.

They'd then fire up the ridiculously large amount of vehicles, including fliers, and take over the world.
