Hello everyone! Through a few months of gameplay in a Rogue Trader campaign and my character joining Malal/Malice and eventually teaming with the Sons of Malice, I’ve been inspired to start a Sons of Malice army for 40k. So far this project has been an absolute blast. Note that some of the characters and events I’ll be building and writing about are solely part of our Rogue Trader Story, and as our story is occurring in a slightly alternate timeline, things may be a bit different from the standard storyline. My friends are pretty chill as far as homebrew stuff goes, so I’ve been writing up rules for the Sons of Malice, which I am willing to share once they are complete for those interested. As there is limited information on the Sons of Malice, my friends and I have taken some artistic liberty with these forgotten warriors. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have! That being said, On to the story and the models! Brother Silas Alec, Red Scorpion It had all happened in a matter of months. Silas Alec of the Red Scorpions, a veteran of the Badab War, had be assigned to a Rogue Trader crew to repay a chapter debt to a wealthy family from Terra. The assignment came from Commander Carab Culln himself. At the beginning of his journey aboard the vessel known as the Unsung Hero, Silas had acquired a strange daemon blade housing a daemon of Slaanesh that bound itself to him. Silas attempted to find an escape from the daemon’s temptations. Through the help of a young astropath on the Unsung Hero, Silas learned of Malice, the Renegade Chaos deity. The astropath convinced Silas that since daemonic bands cannot be broken, they can at least be changed. Silas contacted a representative daemon of Malice, and agreed to a new contract with Malice. The Slaaneshi daemon blade was banished and replaced with a two handed daemon sword name Dracnyeen masked in the appearance of a power sword. (side note: I know the name is similar to Abaddon’s daemon blade, but the GM gave it the name. If it’s any consolation it is pronounced differently.) Throughout his adventures, Silas saw many injustices and imperfections in the Imperium he once held dear. While retaining his love for humanity, Silas has determined that the only way for the galaxy to have peace is first to destroy Chaos, and then purge the Imperium of tyranny such as the Inquisition. Silas’ journey’s, decisions, and the betrayal of two who he had called close friends, led to his full conversion to Malice and the necessity to abandon the Unsung Hero. Malice lead Silas to find the Sons of Malice, where he has found allies who share his goals. Silas with his new Daemon Blade, Dracnyeen Silas quickly gained reputation and position within the Sons of Malice, but also discovered that the difficulty of politics and prejudice exist even within the followers of Malice. The Sons have been pointed to hate both the Imperium and Chaos and expend their warriors and wasting their energies fighting the imperium instead of focusing on their true enemy. Duhm, second in command to Kathal, is attempting to usurp Kathal and turn the Sons of Malice against the newcomer Silas. Silas must battle Duhm to end the growing civil war within the Sons of Malice. Silas joins the Sons of Malice and adopts more Chaos iconography and scrolls of daemonic text. Kathal is the Anarch of the Sons of Malice, and has led the Sons of Malice to many victories. Until the arrival of Silas, he has been the favored of Malice of decades, but following Duhm’s scheming, Kathal has gone missing… Original concept art of Kathal Plundered from the Iron Hands, Kathal wears Gorgon Pattern Terminator armor he has modified for his own liking and function. Kathal wields two fearsome chainswords known as Black and White. Game wise, Kathal's stats are based on Tyberos the Red Wake, with a few modifications. WIP model. Sorry its not the best picture quality, I'll post more as I make more progress I have lots more on the way! I am currently working on the 11 Doomed Ones, as well as a 5 man havoc squad. I also have a 5 man chosen squad 10 man tactical squad, and 5 terminators in the works. As well, I should hopefully be receiving a Mhara Gal Contemptor Dreadnought and Gal Vorbak in the mail soon. I'm also nearly done with a sorcerer, Spined Beast conversion, and have the bits to custom build a giant chaos spawn. Much more in the works, so stay tuned. Thanks for checking it out!
