Primarch Deathmatch Round 3

Well this is it the final round of these little fights and it has certainly been interesting so far. Round 1 and Round 2 if you missed them.

So with Horus out in front will he go undefeated or will Fulgrim and Angron catch him up? Finally with Mortarion actually do something?? Time to find out…

Mortarion VS Angron

So here is the starter course of the final round as Angron looks to save face and Mortarion looks to well actually do something.

So as the bell rings it is no surprise that Mortarion needing a good start comes out swinging and managing to inflict 2 wounds onto Angron but not before taking one himself.

Round 2 saw Angron getting less than happy (can’t say Angry again ever after this by the way) and manages to cut his brother without taking a wound.

Round 3 saw a reversal of round 1 as Angron starts to get into the grove and turn into the hurricane he should be..

Round 4 it is all over! In the biggest round of these fights a Primarch manages to take more than 2 wounds off one of his brothers to leave Mortarion at the bottom of the pile!!

Winner is Angron

Horus VS Fulgrim

Time now for the main course and the final battle in this little round-robin tournament I have done. The so far unbeaten Horus versus the boy wonder that is Fulgrim.

Into round 1 both brothers either wary of each other or out of some sort of respect circle each other and use testing strikes but nothing worth while makes a mark on them.

Into round 2 things are still cagey but then as the bell rings Horus manages to make a telling blow and causes a wound.

Things continue into round 3 as both brothers go through an intricate dance of blades but neither land a blow.

Round 4 Fulgrim finally manages to best his brother taking a wound without reply.

Round 5 clearly enraged by his brothers cheek to wound him Horus decides to teach him a lesson and goes on to cause 2 wounds.

Round 6 looking to finish this Horus did another wound and Fulgrim failed to do any at this point it was TKO as Fulgrim could no longer wound his brother due to the Talon!!

Winner is Horus

So there you go ladies and gents the winner as if there was any doubt is Horus. Although the Primarchs stats are all pretty similar it comes down to the invulnerable saves and their weapons and it has to be said the Talon for Horus is brutal

He can’t kill as many as Angron or as quickly as Fulgrim but anything with a high wound count will suffer a slow death from Horus as he can literally pick characters apart and not need to worry about being hit back. Anyone that can reduce a Primarch to WS and S less than 3 is always going to do well.

I was surprised how poorly Mortarion did but I believe he is not meant to go after his brothers he is about clearing out infantry and on his terms so maybe an unfair set of battles this.

Final standings – Horus 3 wins (2 by TKO), Angron 2 wins, Fulgrim 1 win, Mortarion 0 wins

Primarch Deathmatch Round 2

Welcome to more of Primarch on Primarch action in which we see which of the original 4 traitors is the daddy. After round 1 matches we have both Fulgrim and Horus up and running with wins.

Check out the above link for info about how I am doing the fights but for now let’s get straight into it:

Fulgrim VS Angron

This match was certainly a 30k version of Beauty VS the Beast!!!

As the brothers started to circle each other Fulgrim did his sword dance of moving and striking much to Angrons anger (I couldn’t think of anything better to use :P) however maybe too much prancing caused Fulgrim caught by some deceptive footwork by Angron! At the end of the first round Fulgrim had managed to find 2 weak points while Angron bludgeoned his way to a wound.

Moving into round 2 perhaps Fulgrim was caught out by his footwork not working as well in the last round he was caught by a vicious kick by Angron.

Into round 3 and Angron could sell victory or was it just blood?! Anyway he turned into a whirlwind of death and at the end Fulgrim was barely standing having taken 3 wounds and failing to do any in turn.

To end his brothers suffering quickly Angron removed his brothers final wound without any ceremony.

Winner is Angron

I was really surprised about this after round 1 I thought the quicker Fulgrim with impressive inv save would have out lasted Angron but it was not to be and finally the Red Angel made back his name.

Horus VS Mortarion

THe next match was of course the man himself Horus vs the reaper who can take a lot of punishment Mortarion.

Like the previous fight both brothers went straight for each other, no quarter given. By the end both had received a wound. However Horus had chosen to stick with his talon and so he had hoped to slowly whittle his brother down.

Both brothers had stunned each other with the early show of force and neither could get and advantage this round.

Into the further rounds Horus started to dismantle his brother in a slow methodical way. Over the next 4 rounds he caused another 5 wounds which left his brother still alive but unable to continue as Mortarion couldn’t hurt Horus anymore

Winner is Horus

I was not surprised by this really, as once Horus starts wounding with that Talon no-one in the game stands a chance as was shown in that he managed to get Mortarion down to ZERO strength before he could kill him.

So after round 2 of fights Horus has 2 wins both Fulgrim and Angron have 1 win each and Mortarion is bringing up the rear.

In the final round can Horus go undefeated and can Mortarion at least win one fight? We shall have to see..
