The campaign is set after the events of the 'Purge the Unclean' add-on books. The investigation for the Serrated Query continues. There will also be a tie-in with the Deathwatch. Before anyone yells "Emperor's holy undergarments! You can't have astartes in Dark Heresy!" - these are non-player characters, and are there for valid reasons (and there's going to be 3 at maximum).
As our campaign isn't going to happen until July at the earliest, this gives me plenty of time to build up characters.
So, allow me to introduce the first few - varying levels of WIP. Please note, all bases are just temporary, until my gaming group can finally agree on something...
The gun-slinger - Carmichael. This is an NPC (hence the hideously expensive loadout of 2 plasma pistols and sword...)
"Careful kid - those pistols have been shooting things since before you granddad was born..."
Whilst some members of the Ordo hereticus like to go about their business in secrecy, taking to the shadows - Carmichael prefers to go about things like a grox in a crockery-emporium. A former rogue-trader, specialising in electronics, Carmichael entered the service of the Ordo entirely by accident.
I'm thinking of giving him a blue or black jacket - not entirely sure. I'm well are that his eyes look ridiculous, but this is a WIP afterall
The witch - Carina (Player character)
"Something ain't right with that girl... No, no, don't look at her! They say that's how it starts..."
A pyromancer. Taken into service of the imperium at a young age due to her abilities. Pyromancy is hard to hide - especially when things (and people...) in the general area of Carina bust into flames - seemingly at random.
Personally, I want to convert this model - I don't like the fact it's stock. However, the player doesn't want me to, she likes the model as it is. Considering painting the sword in her left hand in flames. Still got a lot of painting to do on this one.
The Dishonoured and The Healer (far left, far right respectively) Both are (for the time being) player characters.
'Uncle' Thadus (left) - a former Naval hero, now in disgrace. Bionic left arm (not shown).
'Doc' (right) - imperial guard medic. Rescultped the torso to have webbing rather than body-armour. Don't really have much fluff for either of them yet.
And finally for this WIP...
The 'magos'. NPC. ('Uncle' Thadus is on the left)
"Who, that? Nah, that's just 'magos' Corban. I know he's big. Yes, I know he looks like an astartes, but he isn't. I know he has an Iron Hand symbol on his right shoulder, but that's just his family crest. Look, honestly, he's just a cogboy. Albeit on the large side..."
A side character for halfway through the campaign, the 'magos' will be introducing Deathwatch to the game. He's going to be a guide and assistant. He's based on the techmarine art from the new Blood Angels codex by Adrian Smith (but I've yet to find a suitable head for him). Iron Hands techmarine from the Deathwatch, 'magos' is his nickname/poor covername whenever he's brought into non-DW missions.
Right, well that's all for now. Any suggestions/criticisms? (Both appreciated)
Cheers for looking!
