Another old paintjob found its way to my photo booth, Captain Murder of the Kingbreakers:

Looking really good, Joe! I have been away from my table for a bit after suffering a mini-burnout getting ready for the Apoc game, but it's time to buckle down and get back to work for Adepticon!

So, who's the top secret BA Sang Priest dude? Allied Blood Angels or just a command squad Apothecary?

I was wondering if you would notice him, and assumed you would!

He's Kingbreakers Master Apothecary Sauvon, played as Salamanders Master Apothecary Harath Shen. He's from Forge World's Badab War material but doesn't have a specific model and apparently actually isn't even in the books, he's only been published in their PDFs. Both of those facts are pretty convenient for me.

The basic scoop is that he gives +4 FNP to his unit. He also has a warlord trait that's perfect for the Kingbreakers, essentially +1VP for units killed defending the geneseed vaults. Unfortunately I can't really see myself ever using it over Vulkan's warlord buffs (namely rerolling melta). The big downside is he's 135 points, so I had a ton of points invested in HQs yesterday.

I'm not totally sure that I shouldn't have painted him in Kingbreakers colors to fit in better, but it's not out of character for Apothecaries to be all-white. I couldn't really come up with a good alternative scheme that wouldn't either look weird (white robe?) or be too much like a Librarian or Inquisitor (red robe?).

Cool! I was actually thinking of some options allying Corbulo into other Imperial armies for his FNP and re-roll, but this guy seems way better.
