He's mean, he's ugly and he's painted. Ahnek is his rank among the former 7th Crixus legion, the right hand of their Deamon Prince lord. What his name was in his former life before the Legion was lost to the Warp is a source of much speculation, but he has taken the name of an angry, indestructable flesh eating spirit of ancient myth, fitting now as he does his masters bidding feasting on the vulnerable worlds at the spinward gate to the Crius Archipelago.
Or at least that's the 'cool' background until I actually start playing the army. Once the games begin, my normally inconsistant ability to roll dice will undoubtedly create some sort of not-so-serious/sadly comical background for him and the army. In the meantime, I'll bask in his rotting glory and stinky badassery, until he embarasses himself on the tabletop.
I start the command squad tomorrow. The plan is to do a full command with several options, most of which I likely won't use in the average game, since with "Straken" and all the bells and whistles, it comes out to around 300 point. But we'll see. I've got guardsmen, forgeworld traitor militia,crypt ghouls,zombies and nurgly deamons (just to name a few) to cobble together this army. Its going to be some twisted kind of fun. Also hope to finish up the sculpting of fur on the Warpig's head. So, there should be an update in the next day or so.
