No special rule for that Illumini.
I understand you are talking about the death of Asavar Kul descibed in some books... but there is also another -most epic- version of his death. It appears in an ancient White Dwarf (about when GW released Hordes of Chaos army book) and explains the youth of this Chosen One and how he conquered leadership of his tribe (the Kurgan). In this version, it was Magnus the Pious himself who defeated Asavar Kul in a duel. Much more epic... but also much more unreal. Magnus was a priest with high leadership skills, and some kind of fighting skills... but obviously, very far from any chosen of Chaos, not talk in comparison of Asavar Kul itself.
I would like to read the story!

Didn't Magnus defeated Kul in every version of this story? I've only read two, I think - in one the dying Kul says something about his Gods forsaking him, while Magnus delivers the most badass line, about Sigmar always being by his side. It reads much better in the original, so just take my word on that. :-P

sweet Kul model! so, Magnus done, Asavar Kul done. It's almost time to put the beer in the fridge and get ready for the big show.  :eusa_clap:

Regarding Magnus vs. Kul, I would think Sigmar pumped up Magnus to Super-Magnus for a few crucial seconds in that duel. That tended to be what happened when a big badass was about to win (until the End Times), see e.g. Karl-Franz vs some orc in the 4th edition book. A bit hard to emulate on the table top without killing the fun, you don't want to be too deterministic.

So, is there a rule in play to keep Kul alive for a bit at least? As is, he is pretty much the biggest cannon target in the history of warhammer.

Great conversion! Three horses pulling the chariot is not something you see very often, but perhaps its a nod towards Nurgle?  :happy: The Mammoth in the background is just insane.

Thank you all for your lines. Jordi (Kul's owner) has no account in this forum, but I'll report him your kind commentaries.

Jajajaja! Yeah... maybe we will have tu put a line of giats and other monsters in front of him!  :icon_lol: Well, more seriously, he has similar stats with Archaon, which includes and special guard save of 4+ o 3+... don't remember exactly. On the other hand, empire artillery will have more importants targets to shoot, specially, winged monsters and flying units.

There is a version where Asavar Kul is killed by his back when storming the walls of Kislev, just at the turn of the tide, by some unkown chaos warrior.

Yeah, that makes sense. Also I think that story about KF being empowered is from the 6th edition armybook. I've read it there, at least.

Kul should be immune to killing blow and heroic killing blow, I think.

Notice you have the same problem as me with one of your Helblasters having no firing mechanism.
Simple fix, the icon on top of the banner pole from the State Troops [the one before the latest feather one's.] doubles up nicely, just need three banner poles, snip them off and there's a firing mechanism. Tried it with panther helmet from cavalry first ,but looked daft.

That's a lot of WP's! They look truly magnificent, Sigmar be praised. You even have the one from Avatars of War. He's a favorite of mine. :blush:
