Three Skulls: Imperial Guard mercenary Unit

Step one of the Dark heresy project is to write up my mercenary unit, I want to start with a group of five troopers. The leader of the unit will of course be The Turk, a rough and tumble all around master sergeant, veteran of many battles, and chieftain on his feral world Lo’ngg Is’land. The rest will be me, Jakaal, a feral world sword master, Jack Ross, a basic trooper, and Weasel, our resident psychic detective. The creation process is very basic, rolling for stats, home world, and other things to flesh out the player characters. I really want to get as close to the real world people with these players, I will post stats and pictures of the figures when all ready to go…

The middle kingdoms were burning; Turk pulled the last power pack out for his Lasgun and snapped it into place, the squad was almost done with ammo and soon it would be knives and swords. The heretics had taken the ridge and were moving down to the bunker; Weasel was squirming on the floor with the visions and most of the squad was looking out into the darkness for targets. We need to get out of here, thought Turk; it only takes one flamer shot to kill us all in here. Jack was scanning the darkness and sighted some movement on the ridge; a slithering sound came from that direction and he aimed his pistol at the spot. “Damn heretics, why can’t we fight normal foes?” he asked, “Because the Emperor wills it, that’s why, now shut up and keep watch!” belched Turk. “They are moving closer, they don’t fear anything, we need to leave” moaned Weasel, Turk lifted Weasel from the ground and slammed him into the bunker wall, “What do you feel witchboy? Do we have enough time to move?” “Yes, they are holding back, their master holds a tight rein, we can use the time to escape!” “Then it’s settled then, Three Skulls pack it up, we move!” And with that made their way to the bunker door…
