ORDOS INQUISITION - Vorian, Grey Knight Grand Master (Vor)
* In validating this character I found that he didn't meet the WYSIWYG standard in that the submission included a Chariot of Khorne whereas the mini clearly had just the Juggernaut, so I made an adjustment. The Chariot of Khorne was replaced with the Juggernaut, forcing something to drop, so I dropped the Blessing of the Blood God. This put the character at the 145 point limit and matched him with WYSIWYG.
Congratulations to all those characters/members that are representing their chosen forum as champion (even those of you that are doing so by default because no one else entered a character - we all know that they were too terrified of your bloke to even hope to compete ).
So where are we now?
Well, it's time to commence with some inter-forum butt kicking.
It's only fair to tell you up front that the method I'm going to use to pair up combatants for the first two rounds is to match up Chaos characters with Loyalist characters (i.e., Chaos characters won't face each other until round 3). Beyond that, all match ups are determined randomly, with one lucky contender getting a bye. We'll leave the Dark Angels slot open until we have a named champion, though that slot will have a placeholder until that time.
So here are our first round match ups:
Battle 1 - Vorian vs Aru'Bael
Battle 2 - Captain Bral Reiko vs Fentor
Battle 3 - Captain T'Sen vs Angerecton
Battle 4 - Marshal Wilhelm vs Captain Karlaen
Battle 5 - Brother Captain Silon Almach vs Wolf Lord Garm Ironhand
Battle 6 - The Dread Lord Korotur vs Interrogator-Chaplain Jason McAdoo
Bye - Ferrous Ironclawb*
*Note that each character gets only 1 bye for the entire Blood Duel AoD. So that means that any characters that got byes in their intra-forum competitions won't get byes in the inter-forum (unless we somehow reach a point at which all remaining characters have a bye already). I've already verified that Ferrous Ironclaw didn't get a bye, but I'd appreciate if anyone can identify other characters that might have gotten byes (include a link/URL to the post in which the character's bye was announced so that I can validate the information). I'll update the listing with a superscripted b (as you see with Ferrous Ironclaw now> b) to indicate characters that have had byes at any point during this competition.
The members that submitted the characters above have 24 hours to submit their battle special instructions to me via PM.
I'll be conducting battles as quickly as possible. If you're interested in writing a batrep, post a reply here stating which battle you'd like to take (first come, first served). Once I run that battle, I'll PM the results to the claimant so that the batrep can be written. I'll try to update the list above with the name of the member that called the batrep in parenthesis (but don't hold me to that - be sure to check the replies before you call any battles, just to be sure).
I expect everyone to be cheering either for or against someone!
