Hey Sim, do you wann add the picture for each Legionary you've profiled? It'd mean the posts make more sense to non-team readers.

Legionary Niiwana Mashkode-Bizhik

3rd Great Company, 2nd Wartribe

Xephyr Muster

 

Legionary Niiwana, a marked member of the Warborn, is depicted here after reaching the Xephyr garrison. A survivor of the Kataii Ambush, Niiwana would quickly become critical to the defense of the Three Fires sub-sector as a premium existed on surviving veterans, especially veterans of Legion internecine-warfare. Note the red bear claw on the armour's chest piece. The 'bloodied claw' was worn explicitly by survivors of the Kataii Ambush to distinguish themselves from their brethren. Niiwana would find little time for recuperation as the Stormlord's spies and outriders would periodically launch probes and raids against the Three Fires sub-sector, ensuring the Iron Bears' inability to recover the initiative. 

 

As captured in this vox-pict, Niiwana preferred Mk III plate for its additional forward armour and assault capabilities. Although the new Mk VII armour was an upgrade to the aging Iron pattern, it had just entered into mass production on the eve of the Great Crusade and was available in limited numbers. A handmade, bone totem functioned both as a spiritual connection to the Iron Bears' legacy and as a military medal, with each bone representing a battle Niiwana had participated in. Likewise, Niiwana's emblemed bolter is a minimal demonstration of his crafting ability, unusual in that Iron Bears tend to prefer more ornamentation of their tools of war.

VIth Legion Totem Guard Terminator
Master Dolan Garrig
1st Grand Wartribe

Garrig was among the final Terran recruit cadres of the VIth Legion, and first distinguished himself on Hahmpin. In due time, his prowess in the melee secured him a place among the Totem Guard of the Primarch himself, and held it through four decades of war. The honour did not come without cost; records show that on three occasions he sustained injuries requiring extensive augmetic reconstruction. Garrig’s service came to an end over Kataii, aboard the Dark Sovereign. Lost to rage in the wake of Daer’dd’s death, he was heedless of the call to withdraw. Dispatching Grave Stalkers, Godslayers and Lasarine cyborgs alike, he fought on until he was dragged down and dismembered by a pack of Choakabrax automata.

Garrig’s Cataphractii warplate bears bears many of the marks common to the Totem Guard, though due to his Terran origins it lacks any tribal motifs. The laurel on his left greave is known to have been awarded after the Relief of the Iron Citadel on Aureus. His lightning claw is a Huronian-derived variant known as a Warclaw. Developed as a response to the monstrous tech-golems used by the last of Daer'dd's exiled foes in the Tricendian Wars, it is designed to crush as much as slice.

So Nibaasiniiwi, for his Book 1 guise, will be a fairly choppy centurion. Cass will represent the old Juggernauts to a degree, being an army buffer to Damon's Killalot. What then should his warlord trait be?

To business:

 

Achille Nibaasiniiwi

Two master-crafted lightning claws (Wolverine augmetics, natch)

Two bolt pistols

Power armour (we can leave the artificer for when he appears as a praetor, tentatively earmarking Escalation)

 

Therox Cass

Former Master of the VIth, the Bear's Left Claw

Terminator Armour

Master-crafted power sword

Plasma pistol

Ok, so Achille feels kinda like a Champion. So same WS as a Praetor and a rule based around challenges (can't remember the specifics right now). Is he extensively augmetic? Is there a description of him anywhere? Trying to work out how to make him unique.

You said Cass is more of a support character, so I guess I'd like a bit more info about him too. How does he run his forces? Is their disposition special? Does he have preferred tactics?

There was one that Drak did. I'll go looking. All his limbs are at least part augmetic.

 

Cass tends to lean quite heavily on armour and firepower, from what I've written so far.

 

Here we go.

The Old Guard

If Therox Cass is in a detachment, then Iron Bears Legion Terminator Squads may be taken as Troops choices in that detachment.

 

Warlord Trait: Inspiring Presence

Friendly units within 12" of the Warlord can use the Warlord’s Leadership rather than their own.

 

Not sure if this is what you were looking for, but I figure either of these make a fairly good base to work from.

I like that. As a fluff thing I might give Cass' Terminators a heavy weapons flavour.

I think Nibaasiniiwi is just about perfect, though I'd bump his armour up to Artificer plate since that's kind of a VIth trait.

Cass I think is pretty solid but I would like to go a bit more unique in his wargear selection; I'd like to actually go with a heavy weapon either Heavy Bolter, Volkite, or Plasma Cannon to reflect the original VIth. I think adding the Ironbound upgrade to him also makes sense, he's been fighting since Terra, he's an Iron Bear he's gonna be Augmented.

Heavy bolter or autocannon sounds right to me
