So I recently got my hands on a copy of the Grey Knights codex and after I finished whimpering in a corner about the sheer cheesy beardy bentness of it all I decided to put our champion the Sanguinor up against the Grey Knights big expensive Lord, Kaldor Draigo.
Draigo's basic wargear is a force weapon (that strikes daemons and psykers at s10) and he has terminator armour with a stormshield. His psychic powers are +1 strength from Hammerhand a s5 ap- flamer (thats also for killing daemons) and his last power affects reserves so does not help here. He has a decent stat line but nothing overly mephiston like. He seems extremely deadly towards psykers and daemons but only average against anything else.
Onto the action then, Both charge at once, Sanguinor getting +1 bonus attack for wings, FYI Draigo Passed his test to have Hammerhand every round.
Draigo shoots his bolter, hits and wounds but its saved, Sanguinor with no shooting goes straight into combat, hitting first at I7. He hits 6 times and wounds 6 times with the help of re-rolls. Draigo makes 5 saves taking 1 wound. He hits back with 2 hits and 1 wound, which is failed so they tie combat failing 1 each.
Next round Sanguinor hits 5 times and wounds 3 times, but the storm shield holds out and saves all wounds. Draigo hits once and wounds but its saved.
Round 3 Sanguinor hits 5 times and wounds 3 times, however this time 2 are failed, leaving Draigo on 1 wound. He hits back getting 1 hit and 1 wound which is failed leaving the Sanguinor also on 1 wound. Draigo passes his save for losing combat.
Round 4 Sanguinor hits 5 times and wounds 3 times, all are saved. Draigo hits and wounds twice but both are saved, its turning to the battle of the 3++ saves.
Round 5 Sanguinor hits 3 times and wounds twice, its just enough with 1 fail killing Draigo before he can strike back.
So its over and the Sanguinor wins again though its close in the end, to be fair to him he should have won it solidly long ago with his re-rolls and extra attack over Draigo who's hitting was what let him down for the most part. Though I haven't seen any of the other characters really in the book, if anyone wants to see any of them specifically fight the Sanguinor just let me know!
