This week has been crazy-busy! Seriously, we've been out, visiting with friends, family-doing something everyday this week! As such hobby time has been all but non-existent. However every now and again I save something for this sort of situation, and for this time I have Arch Centurion Carnac Commodus of the Tyrant's Legion:
|Ya gotta love bitz sellers on ebay!|
Whereas Carnac has a statline similar to a SM Chaplain, if not a little better (for the most part). He also has an Iron Halo, void hardened armor (which is power armor that rerolls saves vs. blast and template weapons, but is -1" on run, charge and sweeping advance distances), bolt pistol, grenades and the 'Blood Biter'. That is a S:5, AP:5 CCW with Rending. Not bad, but not the greatest. Also his Warlord Trait allows him to reroll sweeping advance (rolls). Nothing over the top, but still decent.
His banner pole is adorned with the helmets of deceased Fire Hawks. The Fire Hawks had an axe to grind against Huron Blackheart (though not really a justified one), and were the first to respond to the Inquisition's call to reign the Astral Claws in. Attacking with a vengeance, they quickly realized that they were woefully outnumbered, and suffered heavily for it! Space Marine allies and the Tyrant's Legion troops aside, the Astral Claws chapter itself was estimated to have roughly 3500 marines in its ranks at the war's outbreak. As such the Fire Hawks suffered horrific losses and were withdrawn from the conflict before the war's end.
Thus it only seemed fitting to have my Carnac model recognize their contribution to the war effort...
