Awaiting Pod deployment over Cadia, Brother-Sergeant Scipio intercepted transmissions from an apparent Chaos cult. He immediately launched without orders or confirmation...and landed in the middle of a propaganda movie set, where robed actors were performing a dress rehearsal. His squad purged the area anyway. "The Emperor does not believe your lies," Scipio snarled at a cowering prop boy, "and neither do I!"
The movie company would have gone bankrupt had the Commissariat not deemed the footage "most suitable" for propaganda. Later on, Scipio went AWOL to star in the hit sequel The Undead Heretics Rise to be Put Down Again!
Base: Tactical Squad Sergeant, Codex: Space Marines or Blood Angels. No statline changes.
Cost: 65 points
Equipment: Combi-melta, powerfist
Showy entrance: Scipio's squad may charge on the turn it deploys from a Drop Pod.
Famous target: Scipio's squad is worth three kill points instead of one. No independent characters may join it, lest they steal his spotlight.
It's gonna blow!: Scipio loves to rig his Drop Pod for camera-worthy detonations. At the start of the shooting phase on his player's next turn, Scipio's Drop Pod automatically suffers a "vehicle explodes" result. This explosion is Strength 5. Ignore this rule if Scipio's squad did not deploy by Drop Pod.
This guy's just a fun character that I've had floating around for awhile. Feedback?
