With the coming campaign just round the corner, I would like to share with you guys what characters I am planing on doing for my word bearers, and maybe get a little advise.
Now I would be stupid not to use the characters that forge world have been nice enough to do for me, so Erebus and Kor Phaeron will be making appearances. So that just leaves two more to do.
Since I am not very good or a fan of just making new people up, I done some research to try and fine some reasonably unknown characters that would have played a big part in the pre heresy word bearers. I came across some 2 people that I found quite intriguing. Halik-gar and Maedro Vessar. Both of these are mentioned in the forge world Horus Heresy books.
It states that Halik-gar was the High Herald of the legion and the commander before they were reunited with Lorgar. So straight away I was interested. It also states that a Herald was clad in black armour, his face hidden by a skull helm and bearing the eagle-winged mace. Now remember earlier when I said that I was looking for a little advise? The reason for this is because I am very inexperienced with playing Space Marines, so I was looking for advise in what kind of HQ this guy should be and what should I equip him with, are there any eagle-winged maces you know off?
For this guy, it just states that he is an iconoclast. Now I'm not sure if this just refers to the fact he is a word bearer as the legions informal name is the Iconoclast, or whether it is referring to the commander or an Ashen Circle squad, also know as an Iconoclast. Which that in mind I though it would be a good idea to have a HQ who could be a leader of the Ashen Circle. So this guy would need to have a jump pack, but the rest could really be anything. So again, what kind of HQ do you think this guy should be and which what equipment?
Please comment below as I would much appreciate to know what you guys think.
Thank you and take care :-)
