Default Colonel 'DevilShard' Garrick

[size=11pt]Colonel 'DevilShard' Garrick[/size]

Garrick is a Colonel of exceptional proportion, his men love him, he is charasmatic and has the tactical mind of a warmaster. However, he comes across to other leaders as barbaric, insane and uncouth.

Raised in the warrior hive of Kath on the darker side of Catachan, Garrick was born into a world where the weak suffered, the strong propered and the very strong won. He was of the latter group. At the age of 10 he had already faced his trial of warrior hood and succeded. He was also a master weapon maker. In his chilhood classes of weapon making he came out on top. His class mates all made knives or swords... he made a staff, with a balde on each end, durable and easy to carry. To this day he carries it with him as his weapon of choice to melee fighting.

During his induction he showed exceptional leadership skills, was able to apply improvisation where even the instructors had overlooked and had a nack at making friends. He was very soon asked to lead his squad as a sergeant, he agreed. One battle later, in which his squad suffered no casualties and single handedly destroyed a small Choas infested jungle hive on the world of Kark IV, he was promoted to Luietenant and was given his own platoon of 54 men.

In his fourth battle, one that took him back to defend his homeworld of Catachan he gained his callsign 'DevilShard'. A pack of Devils attacked his whole regiment decimating most of the men, Garrick stood strong, killing 7 devils on his own. All that was left of his regiment was 138 men. He found the decapitated body of his captain during the recovery, his storm bolter still in tact.
After this incident he was nominated by the rest of his men as the new leader... giving himself the title of " 'Colonel of the Catachan 22nd 'Jungle Wolves' ". The remnants of 4 other regiments joined his, quickly becoming one swift, trustworhty and effecient fighting force. Under Garrick's command the 'Junlge Wolves' were credited with the liberation of 2 worlds and helping in the liberation of 9 more. They took part in over 50 major offences and 6 major defences.

Since his enlistment as a Catachan soldier he has only returned home once. And that was only for three days to recruit more men into his growing regiment.

Fluff seems a bit off, but that's not a big deal.

I would almost think you would make the head gear a special wargear item, for instance:

Squad link headset: +20pts Gives squad a max coherency length of 4" instead of 2".

Killing 5 Catchacan Devils in the same fight? As far as I know, killing one is a near miracle...

Killing one full grown one,.... yes

Packs of devils are made up the offspring of a bigger one, often up to 20 at a time. Baby devils, not spawn nor full grown.

Catachan doesn't have any hives, the jungle destroys any buildings made there

Kark IV is not Catachan, nor are it's jungles hostile. It's a planet one of the GW guys in Sydney made up for his deathworld veterans
