Oooh finished the first half of one of the two Assault Squads in my tournament list:
VII Assault Squad
Vexillarius - Aldrik Zol'tara - Trysanna
Zol´Tara´s zeal and absolute faith in the Emperor is source of morale, that benefits not only his squad, but his whole detachment. Chaplain Kaprellian of Fifth company has taken note of this on more than one occasion, and has begun the process of induction. Recently, Zol´Tara has been introduced to High Chaplain Nicodemus of First Company, an honour normally reserved only to those already inducted as a chaplain.
Weapon Specialist (Flamer) - Garic Westrat - Biohazard
A recent graduate of the initiation process and former Pyronamniac gang member of the hive world Necromunda, Westrat still delights in burning the enemies of the Emperor with righteous zeal - so much so that he has been purposefully placed into VII Assault squad with Aldrik Zol'Tara, so that the devoted Vexillarius can keep an eye out for the sometimes reckless new recruit.
Weapon Specialist (Eviscarator) - Hannes Kirchberg - Lord Thorn
Kirchberg is a shining example of the prospective champion, swingin his enormous chain weapon with skill, while maintaining an air of chivalric honour. He always prays for the souls of his opponents after a battle concludes, even going so far as to go back to their dismembered corpses and carefully arranging their different body parts so that their souls can find rest. This practice is frowned upon by several members of his squad, but Kirchberg is adamant in his belief that to treat an opponent with respect is to respect one's own soul, which in turn is agift from the Emperor.
Battle Brother - Rainad Folker - kizzdougs
An impetuous astartes, brother Folker is a whirlwind of whirring blades and precision shots in combat, yet shows a serene calm between missions. When aboard the Phalanx, he spends the limited free time he has meditating on his purpose: to destroy the enemies of the Emperor and to bring ligh to humanity. In his locker, he keeps a small print of the Lectitio Divinatus, from which he reads small excerpts whenever he rests.
Battle Brother - Herric Isenart - MikhalLeNoir
Isenart is the oposite of Folker; a methodical killer on the battlefield, preferring to dispatch his enemies from a flank instead of landing in the fray, while being a jovial and outgoing member of the squad. He frequently seeks out and engages in lighthearted conversation even with brothers from other squads and even companies. Sergeant Brandt of VII squad has come to rely upon Isenart to flush out potential internecine feelings between members of the squad.
That's it! Oh, and as a bonus: I cannot afford eviscerators in the squads, so I'm magnetizing them on the brothers that do have them, so I can still use them in the tournament.
I hope you like! Feedback welcome!
@ Noctem Cultor: Oh dude, I have some weird news: I'm actually thinking of selling any and all Night Lords I do not use frequently.... there's very little chance you'll see any more...
@ Viarocanum: Ha! I got the base done, but that's hardly satisfying to you. I'm thinking of enrolling in the CHaos forum for a fourth time in the coming ETL, so I might see him there.
@ Eldrick Shadowblade: TO BAD BUDDY! 25 more to come! And I´m very honoured to be such an inspiration to you. I -and I'm sure Krauty too- will definitely keep an eye out for your KDK!
@ hushrong: Dude, the Skyhammer Annihilation Force is massively OP, with quadruple synchronicity between its component units. Although their special rules do favour assaulting horde armies - which leads me to plan two more devastator squads with Heavy Bolters (to include that special IF rule that allows rerolls for bolter weapons in combination with the IF devastator tank hunter rule)!
