Kal Jerico and Scabbs

I've wanted to have this iconic duo since first reading their adventures in Warhammer Monthly, as the new model from Forgeworld doesn't call me I went for the old miniatures from 1st edition with updated bases. Kal's look is based on his depictions in the comics and artwork, while Scabbs wears a collection of reeking rags worthy of Baldrick himself

In the new edition Scabbs has a plasma pistol he scavenged from Helmawr knows where, so I scavenged one from an old chaos marine arm I had in my bits box

Secrets of Mortis: underhive shakedown


Having beaten the infidel hordes at the gates of hive Mortis the Redeemer led the faithful into the bowels of that desolate city, to uncover the truth in the rumours about a great treasure hoard buried in the underhive. The crusade rushed to one of the small trader towns that squirted the frontiers of the desolate areas: under interrogation and through the blessed ordeal of pain their inhabitants would reveal to our Messiah the truth of the matter.
Upon reaching the settlement we discovered that it was in the hands of the robotic enforcers of Helmawr, that had entrenched themselves inside while they mistreated the hive dwellers
And from the industrial ruins surrounding the town we could hear increasing noise and gunshots
Proof that more gangs had flocked to the place and that it's taking would be a battle to savour
Never one to lose heart in the face of holy slaughter Klovis rallied the faithful, speaking unto them these words of truth: nothing was impossible with the Emperor's help, he said, and only through suffering could true purity be achieved, for verily it is written that "penance without pain is no use" in the blessed book of Redemption
First as ever into the heat of battle, the Redeemer showed his displeasure to the corrupt lawmen by spreading amongst them the flames of the Sword of Persecution
Following his example the faithful marched into the ranks of the vile foe, unleashing a veritable storm of shot and fire that showed them the error of their ways
And by His grace was the heretic brought low and his sins punished justly with death, praise be!
Even a crude mechanical contraption brought forth by the apostates was brought low, engulfed in the purifying flames of the Redemption
Hugging the cover that dotted the derelict dome the crusaders stormed forwards
Cleansing deviants left and right in its triumphal march
By then the enforcers of sin had been ravaged by the combined onslaught of all gangs, and gangers of all kinds were spilling into the central plaza looking for information

It was then that a terrifying sight, sure to frighten anyone not imbued by the zeal of the faith, appeared before us: a pack of plague zombies had descended into the dome attracted by the sounds of battle
The blasphemous heretics struggled with this new foe
But the faithful lost no time in cleansing such abominations from the sight of the Emperor
With more zombies closing in the Redeemer decreed that it was time to storm the loathsome compound. The templars charged into the flaming town, and by His grace one of our novices was the first to extract a clue on the whereabouts of the hoard from the terrified scummers that lived there
Battle had turned into a veritable melee, with the host of the miscreant dragging themselves on the floor
Despairing , bleeding out and fleeing in haste
Before the majestic sight of te defenders of the one true faith

We rejoiced as the sinners fought with one another, sparing us the hassle of offing them ourselves
Shining with the Emperor's radiance the Faceless engaged a massive ambot in the middle of town, and while he wasn't able to defeat the mechanical beast it soon was neutralized by the weapons of his brothers in Redemption
While the other gangs were brought low more and more zombies had come into the fray
Infecting the goliath barbarians with their deadly plague

And so did the inner vileness of the infidels show upon their bodies, which raised again as mindless undead abominations, dragging themselves forwards like true vessels of corruption
Only the faithful, filled with the Emperor's own light could stand in the face of such horror...
...but not for long, and having retrieved all the information he needed the Redeemer ordered a hasty retreat from the condemned settlement, leaving the heretics at the mercy of the plague zombies
An adequate fate for those who had turned from the Emperor's light and wallowed in lives of sin, blindly turning their backs on the redeeming light of our holy cause!

Primus crusade: race to Rustgate

Having routed the apostates in the slums of hive Primus klovis led the defence of the blessed settlement of Rustgate from the brutal goliaths. Being the gateway to the great ash roads the place was the key to an immense wealth that could never be allowed to fall into the hands of such enemy of the faith
Soon we saw them over the horizon, a collection of miscreants and heretics sprung up from the infect bowels of  heretical amneo-vats, vile machines that defied the Emperor's ordained will with their artificial spawn and heretical geneo-sorcery
But fear not faithful reader, for the forces of Redemption were at hand to put an end to their evil: Klovis had sallied out from Rustgate aboard the Puplitek
Both vehicles engaged in a lively firefight, and by the grace of the Emperor their abominable barge of sin was struck down, purged with purifying light of a mining laser
In their last moments the degenerante vehicle turned its guns on the Pulpitek, damaging it badly with an unfortunate slavo of its own corrupt artillery
It was then that I reached the battlefield and beheld an inspiring sight that made my heard soar after the grievous blow of the -temporary- loss of Klovis' rolling temple
Leaving behind their inoperable machine the goliaths were rushing towards the gate in foot, falling prey one by one to the weapons of the faithful
Brave Alpha sacrificed herself by charging recklessly into the foe, who pinned in place by her fiery onslaught was left stranded in the middle of the wastes without any chance of reaching the gate
And so it was victory secured by the Emperor's will and the Pulpitek's formidable guns
