This week I will be introducing my next project - 'The Breakers'
The Breakers will be one of the Factions in the upcoming campaign between myself, Colonel Scipio, and Headologist.
The Breakers are a nice change of pace from my previous armies, which where small, elite forces. Whereas the Breakers are a massive wave of undertrained and badly equipped masses, protecting a small, hardened element at its core. I've used the army list in the Imperial Armour book The Badab War (Volume One) which is used to represent a secessionist force and is perfect for what I need here
Here is a brief overview of the Breakers themselves
Elements of the Traitor Blades of Fire have successfully infiltrated the mining community of Diruam Metallorum, known as ‘The Breakers’
The Breakers have suffered disproportionately at the hands of their so-called protectors. They have in the past even assisted Palladian investigations into rebellions of other communities, only to be repaid with pillaging and mass executions of ‘Rebellious Instigators’ - The Breakers have lost all faith in the Imperial Creed and are now fighting back to protect their community.
|Some of the Breakers have devoted themselves to their new masters more than others and have become cultists|
Unbeknown to the Breakers – the Traitor Blades care little for their pathetic devotion. They are simply using the Breakers as cannon fodder and to mask their operations in that sector.
Those who read Colonel Scipio's Blog will think that the Cultists look familiar, and that is because they do, I've bought them off Scipio and are now using them as a single 30odd strong human shield!
And Introducing Sergeant Quirinus Decanus, who is currently leading the Traitor Blades in the area and stirring up the Breakers
Quirinus was promoted to Sergeant just before the split in the Chapter but is considered something of a promising Champion amongst the traitors, gathering more marines to his side than would normally be expected.
