These are the nefarious, or semi-infamous, characters that have appeared in my Battle Reports and hobby posts. Some are characters that I (or my opponents) named, and some are special characters from GW that I just enjoy using a lot. Regardless, I thought it would be fun to make a quick-reference page for them all.
Warhammer 40,000 Characters
The leader of a Space Wolf Great Company and hero of the Imperium. He's not the hero that the Imperium wants, but he's the hero the Imperium gets stuck with anyway:
|Sven Axegrinder in Terminator armor.|
|Sven in Power Armor.|
Erik is my Death Watch RPG character that I decided to build a model of. I was using him as a Wolfguard Sgt. for my Space Wolf army with the idea that he had recently returned from service with the Death Watch. These days he's now part of my Death Watch "army".
Rex the Venerable ("Veni")
This is my classic Rogue Trader era Space Marine Dreadnought with twin-linked Las Cannons created from a Predator tank kit from the same era. He was painted and assembled during 40k 3rd Edition, when spotlights seemed to matter more.
|Rex, a very Venerable Dreadnought.|
Wolf Priest Jorvik Blacktooth
Wolf Priest Jorvik Blacktooth is a character that started off as a narrator for battle report preambles. This was about a good 15 years before I had a model to represent him. He was usually featured within in-character correspondence with whatever vile foe Da Masta Cheef had dreamed up. He now has a model and was featured in a game (Kill The Courier) where I had appointed him as leader. Not only did he survive, but the Space Wolves won the game -with him landing the game ending shot!
- Noteworthy Events: The Wolf-and-Treachery Transmissions.
- and his first battle (where he also made the winning shot): Kill The Courier.
Rune Priest Jarl Blacktooth
The Terminator Armor-wearing Librarian has appeared in most of my Space Wolf 40k games since the return of psykic powers to the game.
- Noteworthy Game: Updates From The Warzone.
Iron Priest Woton
Iron Priest Gearjaw
Embracing the red, this Iron Priest is set to fix the many vehicles of Sven Axegrinder's Great Company when they, inevitably, breakdown.
This is Krom Dragongaze who is famous for his bionic eye, or the "fierce-eye". However when I was given this model it had already gone through a head swap with a Longfang model. So ran with it and decided that this is an older incarnation of Krom.
Lord Inquisitor Hiser the Hisarion of the Ordo Malleus
Featured in the 2020 Inquistional Conclave, this is one of the oldest Imperial models that I own, bought new back when he was released in 1989. Now he awaits an opportunity to hit the battlefield...
- Spotlight: Ordo Malleus Terminator Part-3.
- Noteworthy Battle: (pending)
Ror Ruk the Ravager
Way back in 1989, the summer that the first plastic Space Ork boxed set was released, Doc TSG was at my house while I was building some orks. And he got in on the action and built this guy. He made the cigar from a bit of sprue and we dubbed him Nik Fury as a result.
- Spotlight: Nik Fury Rogues Gallery spotlight.
- Noteworthy Battle: ...ummm. None chronicled at this time.
Mad Doc Grotsnik
In the 4th ed Ork Codex (that remained valid until it was replaced and unnecessarily nerfed in 7th edition) Mad Dok Grotsnik made a fun and characterful addition to an Ork army.
- Spotlight: The rise of Mad Dok Grotsnik-part-one
- Noteworthy Battle: The Rise of Mad Dok Grotsnik-part-2.
Redklaw Da Kripple
Just a Goff Nob that typically dies a lot in games. On some occasions he would kill his points worth back, but it was rare.
- Spotlight: Goff Talk
- Noteworthy Battle: Um....still researching this...
Ragglebum Foulbreath Jr.
The paint job that inspired a legion. Not only inspired me, but set Dr TSG on his own course as well. He isn't a 'rogue' in the truest sense, as he isn't a character model at all, just an important one to me.
Da hero Goff'm needs right now.
- Spotlight: batork-rogues-gallery-spotlight.
Viv is a Sybarite, not a real character per se, but she has been my Dark Eldar Kill Team leader in the majority of my Kill Team games. She isn't terribly remarkable but she has had a few heroic moments here and there so far.
Cypher was painted in 1999 and I even entered this model into the Baltimore Golden Demon Awards that year (he didn't get far). I didn't get to play a game with him however until more recently, and using his unique scenarios in combination with his unique rules has proven to be quite fun.
Who do you call for a bloody good time? Why Kharn the Betrayer of course!
Gnarlstick the Sorcerer
(Paint job/conversion pending)
- Game of Renown: Chaos-vs-Chaos.
She Who Milks
A witty name conjured up while making a daemons list to face a pack of hippy eldar. It proved popular as it was a play on the Eldar's nick name for the unspeakable Slaanesh, 'She Who Thirsts'.
Skippy the Bloodthirster
- Spotlight: Repairing the Casualties.
- No game -yet
Giggles the Rotter
(Pending a paint job)
- Noteworthy Game: Chaos-vs-Chaos.
