Normally, the Arena of Death is a solitary affair, me against myself. However, last week we had a big game and we ended up with a natural Arena of Death as Mephiston charged into Logan Grimnar.
Round 1 - Mephiston on the charge
Mephiston levelled his Plasma Pistol at Logan and his squad but it overheated as he tried to fire. As he charged into Logan, he cast the Sanguine Sword on himself and also manage to transfix Logan with his gaze. With all of his re-rolls he managed to cause five wounds on the Great Wolf. However, thanks to his Belt of Russ, only two managed to get through. Gripping his the Axe Morkai in both hands Logan counter attacked. Only needing 3s to hit due to his Wolf Tooth Necklace, Logan proceeded to hit five times and wound with all five killing the so called Lord of Death.
Don't get me wrong, I thought that Mephy would cut down Logan before the Chapter Master got to strike but in the end it all came down to the invulnerable save - Grimnar has one, Mephiston doesn't. As I said the other week, in regard to The Swarmlord and The Sanguinor, I feel that characters like Mephiston are better suited to wiping out squads rather than trying to kill other characters that can possibly kill them back.
