All bios are finally written I am sort of running out of idea without repeating too much (I am already ‘cheating’ with the brothers) if anyone wanted to suggest replacements for some of these bios your feedback is welcome. Some of these just don’t compare to the more colorful backgrounds but I guess it is better than nothing.
Lamont "Tex" McFall - HB
Tex was one of the honored few selected for the Space Marine gene seed. Tex went through all the physical and mental conditioning required of one destined to become another Space Marine in the service of the Emperor. However, when it came time for Tex to take the final step he was told that his hat would have to go. This was as unacceptable to Tex as his refusal was to the Imperium. After a few months of re-education Tex still flatly refused the gene seed and was sent to prison.
Steven "Jailbait" Tanner - HBH
At the request of Colonel Sheppard the details of Steven's infractions have been classified
Michael “Jinx” Holtzer - LC
Michael isn’t really a bad guy he is just absurdly unlucky. While in basic training the supply depot ran out of his boot size which doesn’t sound too bad unless you realize the next day was a live fire exercise, in the jungle. Wearing his too large boots Jinx kept on stumbling over every root, plant, and stone causing his unit to fall so far behind the exercise was over before they reached the rendezvous point. Then on the target range he had no less than four bad energy packs for his Lascannon and missed with the one and only shot he got off with a fifth. Lastly in a case of mistaken identity Jinx was fingered in a heist at a munitions depot on his home planet Catachan. Maintaining his innocence throughout the trial one thing after another went wrong and a guilty verdict sent Jinx to prison.
Guido "The Surgeon" Ross - LCH
He is believed to have performed no less than 10 unauthorized and unwelcome 'operations' on various civilians and military personnel.
Jarred "Scars" Quinn - PG
While using a Plasma Gun in <some battle> the weapon overheated and severely scarred Jarred Quinn since the accident
he hasn't been quite right in the head and eventually found his way under the caring command of Colonel Schaffer.
Ed "Fixit" Jenner - PG
In his spare time he enjoy fixing Speeders as much as he does driving them. This time he fixed Commisar Yarrricks speeder and then drove it right into brand new Leman Russ destroying both and landing himself in the hospital for 7 months in a coma. He woke to find himself in the cell next to Wes and Nick Hunt.
Freeman "Rook" Kight - PG
After thirteen years of service his friends still call him Rook he is quite possibly the clumsiest guardsman in the Imperium. Personally responsible for the destruction of no less than four Leman Russes, two Sentinels, a plethora of lasguns, and lastly a Baneblade fresh from the forges of Mars. After the loss of the Baneblade the only option was to ship Freeman off to somewhere he could do less damage. While in prison he destroyed seventeen mops, eleven brooms, one industrial sized washing machine, and is believed to be responsible for a prison wide blackout including both backup systems.
Jc "Hero" Downing - PG
While serving in the second battle for Armageddon Jc Downing was order to send his entire platoon against two hundred war frenzied Orcs. With a nod Jc accepted his orders and then led his platoon to their ‘doom’. Unable to lead his men to their doom he did as he was told, with one exception his commander’s orders for the offensive could not have been planned more poorly Jc took a little too much liberty in following them and successfully held the line and defeated each and every orc. In the finest example of military tradition Jc was charged with failing to follow a direct order and sent to prison.
*I ‘stole’ this one from the original Last Chancers but I like it anyways
Kelvin "Phoenix" Briggs - PG
Phoenix was something of a prodigy when he was promoted from a lowly lasgun toting guardsman to the exclusive special weapon squads. With true aim Phoenix unleashed the hot fiery death of his plasma gun on his enemies. Then when the battle was over Phoenix went back to the barracks and found he liked burning things a little too much. It began small and went largely unnoticed even when he was caught his superiors looked the other way because of his knack for handling the weapon. At first he was only burning various bits of trash and the occasional operational handbook. This wasn’t enough he soon moved onto a few borrowed personal items, then small animals, finally when he torched a barracks his instabilities outweighed his capabilities and he was shipped to a re-education facility.
Wile "Wiley" Guillermo - PG
Wile grew up in a quiet dark corner of the galaxy. A farmer by trade he spent most of his time hunting the local wildlife and tending to his crops. Then the Imperium moved in and annexed his world in the name of the Emperor after which he was quickly drafted into military service. His first assignment he was assigned to hold an unimportant observation post when out of nowhere an unidentified force wiped out his entire division. This wasn’t his fight and when things took a turn for the worse he quickly slipped into the forest where he hid until the invader vanished without a trace. When the Imperial Navy arrived to respond to the distress call they found Wiley and seeing no other possible answer to his survival he was charged with cowardice in the face of the enemy.
Devin "Tank" Miller – DC
Devin was your typical guardsman climbing through the ranks a little faster than normal. It wasn’t until he received the word that his home-world was deemed a heretical breeding ground and marked for purgation. His wife, children, everyone he knew and cared about were gone. In a fit of rage he fought past the security detachment of the local inquisitor before being subdued by the automated defenses outside his office door.
Marc "Mad Dog" Wells – DC
Has been involved in six altercations with fellow guardsmen Mad Dog’s temper has gotten him into more trouble than he can handle. After the most recent incident with a single punch he broke the neck of an important Diplomat’s son and he was shipped off in leg irons.
Russ “Joker” Eisenman - DC
Usually Joker’s free sense of humor lightens the mood of his division with mostly harmless pranks nearly all of his compatriots have amused the rest at their expense. Since he had been so indiscriminate with his jokes he was well received and most of his victims have shrugged things off remembering the last joke played on someone else. It wasn’t quite the case when Joker spiked the division’s water supply with a chemical agent that turned everyone green. This ‘joke’ nearly proved fatal when as you might have guessed everyone was nearly mistaken for Orcs.
Cody "Shadow" Lambert – DC
Shadow is one of the more capable men serving in the guard. Infiltrating behind enemy lines to take out ammo dumps, vehicle depots and the like he has proven himself in one engagement after another. However, Shadow has not limited his skills to infiltrating enemy territory but the occasional Imperial depot as well, where he sells the fruits of his moonlight labors on the black market. Before his capture evidence indicated he has led raids on Catachan, Cadia, Mars, and a number of other world throughout the Imperium.
Wayland "Popcorn" Knox – MG
Wayland has been charged with making unsanctioned modifications to military issue equipment and then using it in a wholly inappropriate manner.
Vladamir "Ruskie" Bolakov - MG
Only one man has had the nerve to call Ruskie, Ruskie to his face. The whereabouts of Captain Hileman are as of yet
Wes Hunt - MG
Nick Hunt - MG
Robert Baxter - MG
Erwin Baxter - MG
These 4 are two pairs of brothers and close friends. The children of high ranking military officers they were guaranteed
a position in the elite storm trooper unit but lacked the military discipline to stay within their ranks. When the Hunt's and
Baxter's met things went from bad to worse and they were eventually sent to the prison planet X where Colonel Schafer took them under his wing.

cool fluff. I can't see anything wrong with it. Maybe say more about jailbait since the LO audience aren't limited by inquisitor only knowledge.
Some very good nicknames.
Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
I think the name 'Jailbait' might be a clue as to his crimes actually.
Looking good, you might wan to make each characters fluff a bit longer though.
Revenge is a dish best served with mayonnaise and those little cheesy things on sticks.

I did take a double take with "Jailbait" :hump: Ouch.
Ruskie was quite funny as well.
Its great, very commandoish makes each one an individual. really good.
Only the weak tell tales of how strong they are...
Took a break from coding added two new profiles and made some corrections.
*Edit some of the fluff will be short like Popcorn and Jailbait where their story is more about the implicit background than what is actually said, since you can't see this from a message board Popcorn's weapon of choice is a meltagun.

Rook is really hilarious yes,
but I also like popcorn.
and from what you say I think he used a meltagun as a microwave for making some delicious corn in combat.
or the like.
please PM me with what he did, cause I find it very funny and would love to use it on one of my blood claws.
Yay all profiles are finished now I only need to write a quick story for the army itself and get rid of the placeholder names in some of the stories. Tell me what you guys think especially about any profiles that might break established fluff in the WH40k universe such as Tex's story and then some of the newer profiles aren't quite up to par IMO.
Tex story is funny but is a bit iffy as far as fluff goes who cares its cool.
