If you were part of an order faction irl, which faction would you least want to face in battle?

And why?

Bonus question: which order faction would you be part of?

    As a simple Empire swordsmen, i believe i would absolutely tremble at the thought of fighting plagued monstrosities, zombie daemons and possibly succumbing to painful biological warfare before the fight even began.

    Hmm I guess if I was a Tilean pikeman I would probably hate fighting Slaanesh as those slippery suckers would slip between the pikes. Plus I have low impulse control and easily distracted by even partial nudity.

    Being sick sucks. Unless i am a dawi with majestic beard though, in such a case i'd say Tzeentch due to his irksome background plays.

    Nurgle can bring a terrible sickness, sure. But Dark Elves will actively, and creatively, torture you until you become a broken minded slave.
  • DraxynnicDraxynnic Registered Users Posts: 11,396
    Gonna go with Nurgle, primarily for the "even if you win there's a good chance you've caught something nasty and will die anyway, possibly after infecting your friends and loved ones" aspect. Dark Elves and Slaanesh are bad to lose to, but if you win the battle, you probably have about as much chance of surviving than against anyone else.

    Second place would go to Skaven, partially because the also use diseases (although they have a tendency to brew diseases that are too deadly), partially because of the likelihood of exposure to warpstone, and partially because the skaven place a really strong emphasis on using sabotage, poisoning, assassination, and similar tactics to wear down their opponent, so you can pretty much never lay down your guard.

    Definitely Dark Elves. They are the purest form of evil in the game IMO. They'd do unspeakable stuff to you.

    Being captured by them would be like being captured by ISIS or a Mexico Drug Cartel.

    Smell. Imagine the smell of thousands of Nurglites.

    Even if you win the battle against Nurgle you most likely end up dieing horribly anyway from from whatever contagious viral disease they were carrying.

    Tossup 'tween them and the dark elves. Either way, death won't be the most likely end for you. They'll keep you alive. Toy with you. Defile you.

    The others at least hold the promise of death, gruesome though it may be.

    If I'm at risk of capture post battle, then getting caught by the Dark Elves would be hell.

    In the moment to moment, Nurgle is far worse. Even if you win the fight against Nurgle, all it takes is one stray scratch for you to lose the war. Dysentery, disease, depravation. Failure to wash your hands or just breathe in the wrong area of the battlefield will consign you to a fate worse than dying on the field.

    DE and Slaanesh, others will kill you, these two will make you wish you died if they capture you.

    Special mention goes to clan Moulder which can mutate you into a biological chair.

    Nurgle because even if you win, your still diseased all to hell most likely and his diseases are never quick. So long as you fight to the death then the others aren't as bad. If you get captured then Slaanesh is up there with the Dark Elves but if you never give up chances are they are going to have to kill you.

    Order Faction I would choose - Wood Elves. Hit and run so hopefully fewer causualities and usually have the home advantage of Forest/Woods to help. Generally they are pretty good against all the dark powers and have some pretty good magic. Im an archer myself so just makes sense!

    Everything is slow with Nurgle. Would prefer a quick death.
