+++ ORDO MALLEUS REPORT N0230716X9237 +++

+++ HERETIC ASTARTES WARBAND REGISTRY +++ 

+++ NAME: IDOLATERS OF THE RED ANGEL +++

+++ INQUISITORIAL DESIGNATION: A12993 +++

+++ YEAR: 099.M42 +++

+++ AUTHOR: [REDACTED] +++

 

The Heretic Astartes force A12993 know themselves as the Idolaters of the Red Angel, and are named for their fallen gene-sire, the Primarch Angron. They have come to the attention of the Inquisition in the wake of the 13th Black Crusade, where they have appeared to have been originally a part of the Despoiler's war host. In the time since the Crusade, they have launched attacks throughout the Imperium from an unknown location in the Cicatrix Maledictum. The aim of this report, and its attachments, is to profile the current strength of the Idolaters and document the atrocities committed by the heretics, in the hope that this information may be used to combat these traitors in the future. 

 

The Idolaters of the Red Angel are suggested to be a newly formed warband, having been drawn together from a number of dwindling World Eaters splinter groups, united in their cause by the Chaos Lord Sevrax Drato. Drato is a heretic in the truest sense of the word, being fully devoted to the Chaos God Khorne, and who believes his Primarch Angron to be Khorne’s messiah; the most potent form of his god’s ideals made manifest. He and his warband seek to emulate Angron, so that they too may one day be as close to Khorne as their gene-father. Part of their heretical zealotry is the ritual painting of their traditionally red helms bone-white before battle, to remind each warrior of his duty to the skull throne, and that their own skulls can also be offered as bounty to the Blood God.

+++ PLANET OF ORIGIN: UNKNOWN +++

+++ SERIAL NUMBER: UNKNOWN +++

+++ ALIAS: RAXUS THE UNWORTHY +++

+++ PRIORITY FOR ELIMINATION: PRIORITAS MAGNA +++

 

The heretic known as Raxus is believed to have once been a Company Champion of an unknown World Eaters Echelon. Among the members of his legion, he won great fame during the Horus Heresy on Istvaan V, by defeating the infamous Raven Guard Captain [REDACTED] in single combat. As the Heresy progressed, and the World Eaters became more depraved, Raxus sought the favour of Khorne with increasing fervour. However, despite a number of dark exploits, it would appear Raxus could not draw the attention of his bloody patron. This came to a head during the War on Skalathrax, where Raxus perceived his failings in the war as the impetus for the fracturing of the legion. He sent himself into exile, allegedly vowing not to return to his fellow traitors until Khorne had found him worthy as a vassal.

 

All records of Raxus then cease for ten thousand years. His next appearance was not until M42, where he has been seen leading hosts of berserkers into battle on behalf of the Chaos Lord Sevrax Drato. It is unclear whether Raxus fulfilled his vow, or how he entered Drato’s service. Survivor reports of Raxus in action are rare and unreliable, as he is only observed from afar: presumably, those who witness him up close do not survive his berserker rage. He is said to wield a plasma pistol into battle, accompanied by a large chainaxe, which is rumoured to contain the essence of a foul Daemon. It is the judgement of this Inquisitor that the elimination of Raxus be designated prioritas magna.

I like your introduction a lot. I’m currently catching up on lore so that I can learn enough about the universe to create my own warband’s tale.

You didn’t specifically ask for c&c on your model, but I would break the helmet up a bit by painting the mask bronze and the eyes, well, any color but the one they are now. Redoing the edge highlighting on the gauntlets (maybe even a light dry brush of a darker grey) would also bring this guy to the next level. Great start so far and I look forward to the rest of the Idolaters!

@Copycat - 100% agree, I got a bit excited and couldn't wait to post! Pretty happy with how the model turned out as a whole, with the exception of the eyes and gauntlets as you mentioned. Cheers!

 

@Trevak Dal - I've been running Raxus as an Exalted Champ with Axe of Blind Fury and Plasma Pistol, but he could definitely cut it as a counts-as Khârn. 

 

Thanks for the interest from everyone, I'm hoping to use this thread as a way to document my lore and army-building progress.

+++ THE CULT OF RHOMPHAI +++
 

Intelligence reports that the Idolaters of the Red Angel have divided themselves into cults of worship, revolving around their Chaotic deity Khorne, and their Primarch Angron. The largest among these cults is the Cult of Rhomphai, who’s members seek to emulate the aspect of Khorne that is synonymous with rage. The size of this cult within the World Eaters may come as no surprise to the learned reader, given the effect of the aptly named Butcher’s Nails on the remnants of the Legion. The word Rhomphai itself comes from the Nagrakali verb to destroy. Its members often display their dedication to the aspect of rage through the large helmet crests that World Eaters Legion berserkers typically march to war in. The Rhomphai often unleash the bestial rage of Khorne through close combat, favouring the chain-blade and chain-axe to carry out the will of their dark patron.

 

Notable Members: Raxus, the Unworthy

 

Identifying features: Helmets with a large crest that is reminiscent of two ‘horns’

 

Pict Attachment: Raxus, the Unworthy stands at the forefront of fellow members of the Rhomphai. Note the shape of the helmet crests that denote allegiance to this particular cult.

+++ ALIAS: GORROM THE CRAZED +++

+++ PRIORITY FOR ELIMINATION: PRIORITAS MAGNA +++

 

It is believed that none in the Idolaters know the origins of Gorrom; only that he must have once been a great hero of the World Eaters to be interred within the chassis of a Contemptor Dreadnought. Indeed, only his name is known by way of its engraving upon his damaged armour. Discovered by Drato’s warband in a state of supreme disrepair, and abandoned for what may have been millennia, Gorrom has descended into the madness that many Hellforged Contemptors seem to escape. Nonetheless, Gorrom has been in the service of Drato for the best part of a century, and is an opponent that any Imperial commander should treat as prioritas magna on the battlefield.
