What does everyone think of Colonel Iron Hand Straken? Like him? Hate him? why?
He has some cool special rules including an initiative based powerfist (although still guard I) and basically strikes as an MC in close combat. He also gives furious charge and counter charge to all within 12" including himself. All that with a power armor save and the normal orders of any other officer.
Personally I think the 3+ save is excessive as with that, his strength and his toughness he's practically a slower space marine with a relic blade. But I still love him as I've always been a fan of a last minute, dramatic charge of guardsmen and play very aggressively myself.
Also I've been using his model for a little more than a year now as a stand in for Varl from the Gaunt's Ghosts series.
Most Notable Achievements:
Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
There again, he is effectively made of adamantium. That really should make someone hard.
I like him. I wont be using him but you can't argue with someone who performed a throatectomy on a large predator (while it was eating him) with his TEETH!
And even if he is lying and he used his knife, he still gets many, many manly points.

I like the fluff but i haven't familiarised myself with him yet. I'm more interested in the mongolian style rough rider character.

I am a sexy shoeless god of war!
Iron Hand = Arnie = Austrian Death Machine?
jesus.. on the charge he's a strength 7 power weaponed I4 armour penetrating monster!
I really should have read his rules better.... and as i typed this noticed he has counter attack... so counts as charging even if charged....
i love that guy.
If anyone believes on telekinesis, raise my hand!!
