Hey all! So just a little background info about my warband: The idea came out of 6th Edition Chaos Codex that briefly mentioned those warriors who fail Abaddon, or are mauled in battle:

 

"The Oath-Broken are a special formation of the Black Legion comprised of those Chaos Space Marines who have failed in the service of the Legion's master, Abaddon the Despoiler. Those that dare betray the Warmaster of Chaos seldom live long enough to regret their mistake, and those who do quickly come to regret their folly bitterly as their bodies and souls are subjected to the most abject of agonies. The Oath-Broken are no true traitors to Abaddon, but merely those who failed in their assigned tasks, or got badly mauled on the battlefield and crippled by horrendous wounds. Failures and cripples invariably lose the fickle attention of their mortal and immortal masters alike, and without the blessings of the Powers of the Warp to mend their limbs or knit their broken bodies together with mutations, the Oath-Broken are forced to fashion their own crude replacements: blades sutured to stumps, xenos appendages crudely grafted into empty sockets and ragged armour patched with whatever material the Eye of Terror deems to provide. And yet, woe to the fool who underestimates these dregs of the Black Legion, for an Oath-Broken's desire to again bask in the glories that only Chaos can provide is only equal to his hatred of any who still do."

I was fascinated with the backstory of what happens to traitors when the Dark Gods turn their back on their own followers. So I decided to model up a few squads and build a few stories around a motley band of scavengers and killers.

After the Photobucket screw job, I thought rather than try to replace every single photo, I'd start over here and tie it to my ongoing participation in the GILGAMESH CAMPAIGN. All hobbyist are welcome to join me conquering the planet for Chaos! (or if you are an imperial scum... i guess you could fight against me, too!) Feel free to PM me about how to join. It is easy and fun. Here is the current campaign Map now. Also, IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE, PLEASE CONSIDER FOLLOWING THE TOPIC AND LEAVING A COMMENT. IT REALLY HELPS KEEP ME MOTIVATED!!! THANKS!

THE OATH-BROKEN

 

Prologue

 

 

Lord Kraven stared into the vast endlessness of the void from the Bridge of the Battle Barge The Unforgiven. He saw Millions upon millions of planets ripe for plunder to make a worthy sacrifice to the Dark Gods. Nothing had been the same since his disgrace at the hands of the Emperor's Children. How long had it been? Ten Millennia, more? Time had no meaning in the Eye. As his mind drifted on thoughts of vengeance, his vox-unit signaled.

 

"Lord, my divination is complete." Caradoch's voice resembled more of a reptilian hiss than the Genetically modified warrior he had once been. "The Gods have spoken. Gilgamesh must be bathed awash in blood."

 

Finally, was this the redemption he had long seeked? Was it another cruel trick of the Gods to keep him off the eight-fold path forever? It didn't matter.

Lord Kraven turned to his first command. "Mark a new heading to the Gilgamesh System. We prepare for war!"

 

 

LORD KRAVEN

 

“The Dark Gods of Chaos do not care about us. We are simply tools in their endless fight, just as we once served as simple tools in The Emperor’s blind ambitions for Apotheosis. The only difference from now and ten millennia ago, is the veil has been lifted from my eyes. Betrayed by the Corspe God of Terra, and now, discarded from use by the Master’s we turned to, I serve only myself. I will make them pay until I have my status restored. Planets will burn and blood will be spilt until my brothers are avenged."

 -Lord Kraven’s Canticle of Hate Chapter 1 Verse 1

CARADOCH

Caradoch is Lord Kraven's foremost advisor. Although he still maintains a great deal of his warp-born powers, he still strives for the day to return to his former position of power within the Legion.

 

 

Deep inside the Heavy Battleship Eternal Hunger…

 

Brother Quaress stood guard outside Caradoc’s personal quarters, a bolter clasped in his massive hands. The gold trim on his black ceramite power armor reflected the braziers’ light that lined the corridor’s walls. Two servitor gun drones- amalgamations of corrupted flesh and metal flanked him, their skin twisted and gray where it fused with their heavy bolters hardwired where arms should be.

                “Lord Caradoc approaches,” they said in unison, flat, robotic voices. The servitors kneeled clumsily and lowered their heads in deference.

                Quaress detected nothing. His genetically enhanced vision was superior to those lesser beings, and the retinal display in his tactical helm scanned the long hallway in both infra-red and ultra-violet frequencies. The hall was completely empty.

                “You drones need to be recalibrated. I don’t see…”

Quaress did not get a chance to finish his sentence before the braziers lining either side of the corridor flared to life and a cloaked figure in power armor appeared from the shadows. Quaress instinctively raised his bolter.

                “Rest easy, Brother Quaress.” Caradoc’s voice washed over him like a sweet melody and he lowered his bolter almost as if in a trance. Caradoc shared the same pattern of power armor and a rich embroidered robe flowed from his shoulders to the floor. He carried a wicked power glaive that burned with a blue warpfire along its daemon steel blade. Caradoc’s right hand had begun to harden and transform over the years so that now it resembled more of a chittonous anvil of volcanic rock. One of many blessings from the Dark Masters.

                “That was quite the entrance,” Quaress said stowing his bolter.

                “Forgive the theatrics Brother.” Caradoc’s face was concealed by a hood and a vale of golden chainmail. Quaress felt sure that Caradoc was smiling behind it. He was smart enough to know the sorcerer was displaying just a minor demonstration of his many powers.  “And what of my guest?”

                “The prisoner is prepared as you requested. He awaits… your audience.” Brother Quaress wasn’t exactly sure what fate awaited the Loyalist they had captured on the surface of Thraxian IV, but he knew from eons of combat it would not turn out to be pleasant.

                “Excellent work Brother Quaress. What we are about to embark upon will ensure our places in the Canticles of Hate. This Astartes warrior is but the first step.”

                “Death to the False Emperor!” Quaress thumped his fist to his chest.

                “Only if he should be so lucky.” Caradoc waved his free hand at the door and it swung open into the chamber behind Quaress. “A final word of warning brother.”

                “I fear nothing, Caradoc,” Quaress said.

                “Your bravery is commendable and serves Lord Kraven well. Just remember no matter what you hear, no matter what the dark voices whisper or promise, do not enter my chamber until I return to you. I would hate for you to suffer… like poor Brother Castus.”

                Brother Castus had been particularly ambitious in courting the favor of the dark Gods and the Gods listened generously heaping powers upon him until he devolved into a hideous spawn, stark raving mad and mutated beyond recognition. Unleashed upon the populace of Thraxian IV, the creature had scurried off into the wilderness never to be seen again. After ten-thousand years of endless war, Qauress knew there were worst fates than death.

The Lord Executioner was listening to the reports provided by his Lieutenants and allies: a lot of good news indeed as the main objectives were about to be reached on time.

 

Oghmios Asamon was the last to speak. Normally, Arius Draken would not give much credit to a Sorceror's input but the Thousand Son was reliable and always tried to provide the clearest information.

 

"Arius, I see a blade in the Shadow, I see an outcast seeking vengeance. He will come to you and pledge himself and his Legionaries to our cause."

 

Welcome to the War Host Eldrick!! Hive Gilgamesh is ours to burn so come and take as many souls as you wish...

 

Awaiting for your roll call to indicate you sectors for future insertion.

 

-Celtic_Cauldron

 

Lord Kraven scanned the war deck of The Unforgiven. His warriors stood proud and defiant despite the endless millenias of war since that long ago day on the ramparts of the Corpse God of Terra.

 

"My Lord, our Heavy Armor is ready to carve a path for insertion of the ground troops."

"Excellent. Consult with Lord Arius and deploy accordingly for the meantime."

 

Finished: 1 Predator with lascannon sponsons and extra armor.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

The Night Lord was staring at Lord Kraven's Herald... The Emissary was there, standing proud among the many warriors forming Draken's retinue.

 

"Tell your Lord and Master, his armoured speartip is engaged in the vicinity of the Arbites'Strongholds. Their contribution to the War Host success will be decisive..."

 

KRAVEN'S WRATH

Bathed in the blood of thousands of sacrifices, Kraven's Wrath serves as the dread Lord's personal combat command vehicle. The Machine Spirit has been replaced by a malevolent spirit of the warp known only as the Ven'yr. Its treads are coated in the dust of crushed skulls and bones of its victims.

BROTHER VO-TECH

 

Lord Kraven watched with dismissive calm as Votek slit the throat of the 1000th and final sacrifice upon the ancient hull of the battered Land Raider Gloria Nox. The Mechatendrils fused to Votek's spinal column lifted and discarded the corpse pitching it over the side of the hull like some much rubbish.
"Well?" Kraven asked.
"The Loricatus Pattern is unfamiliar to me, but the Warp Spirit is pleased with your offering, my Lord. It will serve you in the coming battle."
"And the transports?"
"The tech thralls are retrofitting them with the proditor armor we uncovered from Canadus Prime."
"Excellent. The Purge will kneel to me and swear The Black or die for their arrogance."
"Oderint dum metuant!" said Votek thunmping his fist to his chest.
"Yes, my brother, Let them hate as long as they Fear"

Just read through this for the first time. Your models show some good character modeled into each one. The painting is also well done.

Don't get discouraged. I have found in my own thread that alot of people will just give you likes rather than feedback. It takes a little while for them to come around, but it will happen.

One thing that would help understand some of the backstory fluff you have in each post would be to tell a little bit about your campaign and how your army fits into it. It can help some like myself to see the larger picture if what you want to accomplish.

That's just my two cents, make of it what you will. You've got a good start, keep it up.

Cracking terminators brother, the choice of heads gives them a brutal, very evil aesthetic; I can imagine seeing that striding towards me would kill be from fear long before their blades reached me. Nice job on the claws and power weapons, the gradient's nice and smooth.

 

I really agree with what Custom Hero said regarding traffic, comments and likes; it's something I find really disencouraging on my thread too, as it's the comments that really keep me going; there's not much of a hobby comunity in my locale, so the board is my main link to the hobby. I think it is quite a common issue, however, I've noticed both KrautScientist and Augustus b'Raass mention it in their threads. I'd agree that adding a bit of context and fluff would be great to see too.

@Custom Hero Thanks for the advice. I went back and added the fluff / inspiration for the warband. I'll be going back to each unit and adding in some additional background and how they fit into the narrative fluff.

 

@ Sgt. Blank Thanks! I saw them on the PuppetWars website and just knew they were my Oathbroken termie heads. I felt like the metal grafted directly to the skin is something they might resort to when the Gods no longer heal their wounds.

 

@Pearson73 Thanks again. I went back and added some fluff / context and will be fleshing out each unit's backstories a little more at a time. I think like you, I have no direct access to the hobby ( no one plays around here and even if they did my job and family keeps me far too busy to realisticly play a game) so this is my point of contact for the hobby. I was just pretty frustrated at the time. Thanks for the positive feedback!

 

@Bjorn Firewalker I don't think my photos really do justice to SubtleDiscord's kit! The thing is pretty awesome. I've included a photo that shows how the ram will lift up to allow the assualt ramp to be fully utilized (and a link to his site so you can see the awesome kits he has.) https://thedarkworks.bigcartel.com/

Looking forward to reading some background for these guys, I know writing a bit about each unit I produce makes me feel a lot more connected to force and makes me think about the possible power relationships at play, especially within a chaos warband. I especially like this piece -  "Three Emperor's Children surrounded me. In my prime, it seemed a fair fight." Only three of the Emperor/Slaanesh's finest!

Dam you have some awesome stuff in here. Those preds and the lr look amazing with the extra trim, so much better than the standard ones.

Really like how you put so much character/personality into each model, it shows they have been around a long time and they arent like the loyalist clones haha

Liking the added fluff. Paint is awesome.

My favorite part so far has to be the faces on the Unforgiven terminators. Your painting has really given what can often turn out to be the worst part of a model depth and character that makes you want to know more about them.

@Custom Hero Thanks Man. They are pretty cool heads. I knew I couldnt just do standard terminator heads for the oath-broken. I've gone back and added new fluff for Kraven, and Kraven's Wrath. Let me know what you think.

 

@allfatherstudios The Land Raider and Predator Trims are from Subtle Discord http://www.bolterand...-legion-rising/ and his shop is at :https://thedarkworks.bigcartel.com/ He's a cool cat and does top notch work. I try to drop a few hundred on him everytime he has supplies.

I like it. Kraven now stands in my mind as a warrior who has been let down by both sides of the war and said, "You know what? I don't need either. My men and I will make our own mark, and somebody help those who stand in our way."

Really enjoying the fluff, brother, it adds a lot more depth and a contextual location to your force, as Custom Hero says, Kraven now occupies a very interesting position, one which I imagine will lead to him taking extraordinary risks to claw back prestige and power. Looking forward to more updates.

@CustomHero Exactly right. Thanks for the Feedback. I kind of see Kraven as a very keen and ambitious warrior. He knows the score and he'll do whatever it takes to burn it all down until he is restored.

 

@Pearson73 Thanks! I think the story was what was missing. I'm going back in and adding story to each unit as it comes to me.

Drahak Kul

If Caradoch serves as Kraven's Eyes and Ears in the Warp, Drahak Kul serves as a swift blade on the Battle Field.

Drahak Kul slit the palm of his hand with a wicked curved dagger, its pommel formed from the eight starred icon of chaos undivided. Black Ichor poured from the wound and he squeezed his fist until the skull chalice set before him by his subhuman aspirants filled with his blood. His fellow raptor warriors grew silent as he began to chant the ancient incantations that would assure unnatural strength and speed in the upcoming ambush of the armored column. When he finished his incantations and supplications to the Dark Gods of the Warp, he passed the Chalice to Perfixi, the champion of the unit, as was his right by test of strength and dominion.

“Drink deeply of this elixir, and be one with the Warp once again”
