Default Imperial Guard Child-Orderly

This came to me in a dream...

The Child-Orderly is a piece of wargear. Despite its name, it can cover a whole host of interesting and disturbing things, from child-slaves, child-servitors, cheribum, psyber-eagles or whatever else your alcohol-fuelled mind dreams up.

A SO or HSO may be given a Child-Orderly at +10pts.

The Child-Orderly does not have an individual model (he hides behind his Officer in terror during the game, and presumably finds a nice hole to hide in during combat...).

The Child-Orderly is armed with a Laspistol, and has a Bs of 2. He may fire in the shooting phase so long as his Officer is able to fire.

In addition, due to the Child-Orderly's instinctive habit of screaming loudly whenever something bad happens, the Officer gains +1 Initiative from the prior-warning the fear-striken lad provides.

The Child-Orderly should be modelled onto the Officer's base, preferably being used as a footstool, coat-hanger, bookcase or whatever other mean things you can dream up.
Farewell, Kangaroo Joe, you shall not be forgotten.

So horrible and mean. What purpose does it serve? (well other than the obvious purpose of torturing little children)....

some optional rules:

1: babysitter: any turn that the squad has to roll a leadership check, one model cannot perform any action other than consoling the little brat.

2: feed him to the aliens: a child orderly can be sacrificed in place of any other squad member during the close combat phase

3: break your miniatures: any regiment utilizing child orderlies is not subject to the normal rules for appropriate weapons modeled on a miniature, as they are all broken anyways.

4: the 'whine' rule: once per game, the child throws a fit, and gets a reroll untill he gets the result he wants. This is highly unlikely to affect the outcome of the game, but does make the child feel better...

jeah.... i really love kids....
