Right, after all that hugging let’s get back to the serious business that is the war against the Emperor of Mankind and his misguided subjects. Like the Imperial Guard regiments from which they rebelled traitor infantry platoons contain a command squad led by an officer or, in their case, a demagogue. The term comes from the ancient Greeks and referred to a leader who arose from among the working people, often through the application of violence and the exploitation of catastrophe. With that in mind I put together this brute. My aim was to suggest someone who had been a common soldier prior to whatever rebellion led his regiment to Chaos and who had since risen through the ranks by vicious faith and aggression.
As well as being tough enough to lead the traitor regiment into battle he also has to look like he could keep these two in line – otherwise one or other will inevitably try to seize power.
With him done I’m going to need to assemble a third squad but my plan is to take a break from the traitor rank and file for a while to work on some other projects. In the meantime your thoughts are, as ever, welcome in the comment’s box.
