First of all, can anyone tell me the special characters in the 2nd edition
IG Codex. The one with the catachans on the cover in a cartoony position.
Second, can people please post information on the following characters
Lieutenant Kage (Last Chancers)
Lord Solar Macharius
Mogul Kamir (i think he's an Attillan)
Lord Solar Macharius was supposed to be the greatest Imperial guard General in history or something like that. He conquered MANY worlds and was a great fighter on the battlefield. He has his own banner on the steps to the golden throne (i think). Nork Deddog is an Ogryn Bodyguard to Sly Marbo. The rest i duno, sorry.
Colonel Schaeffer is the last chancers leader, hes the guy who put together the last chancers. Hes in the new IG codex, you can take a look at that. Hes got his own rules and rules for his whole squad (each individual character). Chenkov was a special character for the Valhalla IG.
Captain Al'Rahem is a special character for the Talarn desert raiders.
(posts merged, please do not do that again ok)

Stumper Muckstart. Ratling sharpshooter. A survivalist.
Captain Chenkov. Vallahallan.
Colonel Schaeffer. In addition to what's been put above, he's also several centuries old. He's been caught up in numerous warpstorms and weird circumstances, which have lengthened his life.
Lieutenant Kage (Last Chancers). Originally one of the Last Chancers, Kage has survived mission after mission, and Schaeffer eventually took him on as a permanent staff member.
Lord Solar Macharius. The greatest commander the Imperial Guard has ever seen. On being granted the position of Lord Commander Solar (and thence becoming a Lord of Terra), he set off within hours on a crusade to the galactic West, conquering over a thousand worlds in quick succession. However, he had to stop when he became out of range of the Astronomicon, and his generals forced him to order the retreat. He died before returning to Terra, officially of some sort of jungle fever, but his generals believed that without the conquests to spur him on, he had lost the will to live.
Following his death, many of the worlds he had conquered ceded from the Imperium, and had to be reconquered, in what is now known as the Macharian Heresy.
There's also Commissar Yarrick in the 2nd ed codex, but I think you've got the rest of the special characters. Also note that Nork Deddog existed before Sly Marbo did.
Now for some actual fluffOriginally Posted by Teh_Primarch
He was marooned on a somewhat primative planet, learnt to speak the Native's language... lead the loyalists against the chaos worshipers.
Eventually the Imperium found him and recruited the natives too (aww how sweet :p)
That's the guy in a nutshell :lol:
Thanks, i needed sme info for my army. Also, if ANYONE HAS ANYMORE INFO ON THE 2ND EDITION CODEX PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'M TRYING TO FIND ONE FOR SALE (SENTIMENTAL). LASTLY, IF ANYONE HAS MORE INFO IN LIUETENANT KAGE OR MOGUL KAMIR I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU
Read the 3 Last Chancers novels. However I didn't really like the 3rd book. It had very little background and just seemed way too rushed in my opinion.Originally Posted by deadaim
On a side note: Watch it primarch you have a triple post there, beware the wrath of the mods. :mellow:
o man, im sorry, didnt mean to do that. I guess i get carried away when i actually know stuff. lol in all honesty though next time ill watch out for posting more than once. sorry bout that.
Lt. Kage is a psyker, that's why he gets premonitions. But he doesn't know he is a witch. He just thinks that he gets those premonitions because he is insane (which is partly true). If you have the time, read the 3 Last Chancer novels.
Is all good...
Lieutenant Kage is a Imperial Guard soldier who murdered one too many civilians and was placed into the penal battalion known as the Last Chancers under Colonel Schaeffer, a notoriously brutal and callous commander. Kage proceeded to prove his worth to the Colonel by killing, assassinating, executing, murdering, decapitating, betraying, and abandoning all of his four thousand fellow penal soldiers, and generally just being an asshole. When the entire battalion was dropped on a Tyranid-infested planet and basically left for dead, Kage was the only survivor - partially because he used his "friends" as bait and decoys.
I can't remember correctly, but I believe Schaeffer ordered the planet bombarded into dust when he heard his battalion was doomed. The entire planet was turned to a husk, killing Tyranids and convicts alike, and Kage survived, only to be picked up, put in prison for six months and brought back into it all over again. Kage has since sworn to kill Schaeffer and is generally regarded as being more dangerous to his friends than his enemies, simply because he often has difficulty distinguishing between the two.
He is indeed a latent psyker; however, his brief and incomprehensible premonitions are dismissed as the maddened ravings of his own war-crazed mind. Sometimes, he likes to believe that they are visions from the Emperor.
