I have and always will be a guard player at heart and so it was natural that the first team I put together was my guard one. The other this that unlike about kill team is that you can go all in with the fluff and really go to town on each individual model. As such, for my kill team I decided to mix things up and not go with the standard coherent force. This did lead to a bit of an issue of how to present the force here, do I go with regiment groupings or roles? In the end I went with roles as I though it would be better and easier to present. As such, we start with the big men, the sergeants. (Names are done left to right, ie Farestien is on the left and Hawks is on the right)
Sergeant 1st class Farestien of the Seonov 2934th Regiment - Farestien is a veteran soldier of a hundred battles from dozens of warzones, a man who has seen and done it all. He leads his men with nerves of steel, flinching at nothing, not even the most foul warp spawn that the ruinous power can conjure. Wearing his face plate, which he wears permanently to cover the injuries to his face that were inflicted during his torture at the hands of chaos cultists, he is a sight to behold, striking both fear and respect in equal measure to those who follow him.
Lance Sergeant (Sergeant junior grade) Hawks of the Hjaltland Light Infantry Regiment - Hawks is here for a slightly different reason than many of the others, as he was left behind by the rest of his unit, mostly because of his unstable mental behaviour. A veteran of many battles, almost as many as Farestien, he has developed some what of a blood lust, often charging headlong in to the enemy, wielding his chain sword like a man possessed. Whilst the Hjaltland LI do believe in fearlessness in the face of the enemy, as a senior soldier, Hawk is supposed to show some discipline and responsibility, not recklessness. Despite this he is respected by his subordinates, especially when things get up close and personal.
Spuknik (Corporal) Nikoli of the Yophouliv Infantry Regiment - Nikoli is one of the better soldiers within the unit, as dutiful in his weapon cleaning and maintenance as he is with following order, you can trust that if you give Nikoli an order it will be followed out to the letter, nothing less and nothing more. This can be both a blessing and a curse to commanders, as Nikoli will follow the orders no matter if it makes sense or not.
Private first class Willem of the Librara Infantry - Willem is a man on the edge, haunted by visions of his past, visions of comrades who have fallen at his side, by visions of those who have died beneath the gouts of promethium from his flamer. Willem is a man that needs to be watched, as one can never be sure if he will advance onto the enemy or not.
Trooper 'slim' Hasker of the Xieyama Legion - to look at Hasker, is to look at a grizzled veteran trooper, as rough and ready as they come but Hasker is a devout and religious man. It has often been said that he can shame many a priest with his knowledge and is well know for his pre-battle speeches. Hasker has a special hatred for those that have turned away from the Emperor's light and nothing g can rattle this man's coolness in battle than running in to a chaos cultists.
Grenadier Cobra of the Onus Third Grenadiers - Cobra is the polar opposite to Hasker, his faith in the emperor is razor thin and prone to complete collapse at any moment. Cobras waiving fair is all due to an incident many years ago, when he was just a raw recruit and the platoon he was with was ambushed and almost completely wiped out during the daily sermon, for if the emperor won't even protect them during this most holy act then why would he protect him in the heat of battle? The screams of those soldiers still haunt his dreams and pull him closer to madness (and chaos) with every night.
Gunner Wolf of the Xieyama Legion - Wolf is a man on a mission. Armed with his trusty plasma gun, Wolf is hell bent on incinerating as many xenos as he can before the emperor claims his soul. He knows nothing but desire for vengeance and will go to great lengths to gain it. This desire for vengeance comes as a result of many actions against xenos forces and a hatred of there underhanded and deceitful ways that's have claimed the lives of many of his fellow legionaries.
Corporal specialist 'bomber' Johnson of the Votis 1st Jungle Guard - Johnson is a consummate professional and an expert with his plasma gun. His knowledge of the weapon is second to none (bar the AdMech of course), both in its construction and maintenance and it's usage. He is the lone survivor of a unit of Votisian Guard who were accidentally left behind, when the regiment was reassigned to another battle zone, and takes pride in upholding the reputation and standards of his regiment.
Pioneer Tomas of the Croydinian Mounted Rifles - they say that to wield a melts in combat is to either have balls of ceramite or a wish to meet the emperor. Tomas most definitely fall in to the latter group, being haunted by the recent devastation of his beloved regiment. With little left but to join his fallen comrades, Tomas has vowed to take as many enemies of the Imperium with him as possible.
Guardsman 'Ironheart' McKillen of the Hjaltland Light Infantry - Ironheart on the other had has ball of pure ceramite and will always get close, of not too close, to the enemy to ensure a kill. Going in all guns blazing is the only way this solder knows and one that has served him well over time, although how he has survived for so long is a mystery to everyone. This method of waging war suits the melta gun, with it's short range but deadly firepower.
Sharpshooter Bask of the Croydinian Mounted Rifles - Armed with a (legally) modified lasgun and classic Electro-optical scope, Bask has made quite a name for himself as a expert rifleman and sniper. While the Mounted Rifles don't generally use snipers, they don't really fit in chimera's, Bask has shown his usefulness and has become one of a rare breed among his comrades.
Rifleman Khabir of the Earia 656th Rifles - Khabir is a true sniper, born and bred. He proved his skills on the Earian savannah at an early age and was inducted into the local defense force at the first opportunity before being conscripted into the 656th Rifles. An incident during the repression of a rebellious local tribe while in the PDF, gave Khabir access to an bionic upgrade, which has some been upgraded several times, and has only improved his skills as a sniper tenfold. If Khabir has one weakness it is the sheer delight which he takes from his kills.
Operator Pavlo of the Croydinian Mounted Rifles - Pavlo is an exemplary vox caster, cool, calm and calculated, always able, no matter what the conditions, to work his vox caster and gain contact. He can adjust his voice, both in tone and volume, to match any situation, from casual patrol update to dire life threatening situation.
Signalman Grytt of the Zenrov 53rd Highland Dragoons - Grytt is, in many respects, the complete oppersite of Pablo, nervous, anxious and tense on the vox. He is haunted by failures of his past, failures to get signals through for support or of passing incorrect information on to command. In reality, he is every bit as good a vox caster as Pavlo and any failures have been the result of external influences or because the information he was given was faulty in the first place. None of this means anything to Grytt and he takes all failure personally.
Medical Technician Feodor of the Librara Infantry - If there is one man that you want around when your injured, it's Feodor. A quiet and somewhat shy man, he is nevertheless, a medical expert. His eagle eye (for it is eye) can spot the source of a wound through a sea of blood, from the largest knife wounds to the smallest punctures, nothing escapes his examinations. If he had not been born umongst the camp whores he no doubt would have been elevated to higher medical or surgical positions. As it is, many a guardsman has be glad that he has not been elevated to such lofty heights.
