Ranking Warhammer Fantasy's Warriors-Determining Phase

This is my attempt to determine a ranking of Warhammer Fantasy's finest warriors, ideally getting to a Top 100 or so. By "warrior" in this case, I refer to characters that fight chiefly with melee weapons, though I will also include characters like Malekith who are adept with both magic and melee weapons. Generics will not be included, as this is named characters only. I will be excluding ranged fighters like Markus Wulfhart in addition to magical powerhouses like Kroak. Those will be separate rankings :)

I will also be taking into account the warrior's overall formidableness. I am not as of now making an attempt to distinguish between strength and skill. Just whatever warriors would come out on top in a mass free-for-all, or else who would kill the same character or characters the quickest.

As my knowledge of WHF is actually not as dense as I'd like, I expect to make mistakes and errors, but that is the purpose of this first blog; figuring out just who goes where. Needless to say, feedback is appreciated.
