Entropic Ascent


Getting Ready for 8th Edition

8th Edition is fast approaching and I am liking the sound of the fairly radical changes being revealed to us. It looks like it is going to be a great time for Chaos and a great time for Nurgle especially. Thus the time is right for a Rancid Angel redux.


Typhus is looking forward to the new edition.

Onus Telegarion, Founder of the Vengeance Host, formerly Demi-Praetor of the Death Guard 4th Grand Company


Thirty Years before the atrocities of Isstvan III, some fifty Death Guard Legionaries from all seven of Grand Companies who had been deemed too hot-headed and wayward were formed into a unit under tutelage of a handful of old veterans who embodied the stoic and taciturn aspects of the Legion, in a bid to reign the insubordinates back. Amongst the longest lived Astartes within the 14th Legion, a Terran born officer by the name of Onus Telegarion was selected to be the chief mentor of the unit and was granted the unusual title of Demi-Praetor. The unit was sent away from the main body of the Legion and over the years was all but forgotten, until Mortarion called his assets to Isstvan III in 005.M31.


Note the stencilled winged skull motif fully replacing Telegarion’s former Death Guard livery.

Scrappers of War World Sargovo Part II

Whilst the Lord Inheritor has many indentured scrappers he has been known to hire the labour of some kind of reclaimer-for-hire when a job requires specific equipment or skill sets. These mercenaries are extremely eclectic in appearance and role and usually very resourceful. DSCF6116

To allow the ‘barrow wights and reclaimers to toil undisturbed, this cyborg has been hired to keep watch for approaching threats, may they be the survivors of war or competing gangs and tribes.

DSCF6117 This particular example appears to have been hired principally for his combat abilities and armaments which seem to be of a quality that rarely survives the wars that scour Sargovo. It is likely some of this tech and weaponry was given as payment by the Lord Inheritor.


This man’s extensive and high quality cybernetics suggest he may once have been affiliated with the Adeptus Mechanicus.




Scrappers of War World Sargovo

On the War World of Sargovo, a great many tribes, gangs and cultures scrape a life from the remains left by almighty battles that scar its surface. One such tribe, led by a rogue Mechanicus adept of the Lachrimallus order known as the Lord Inheritor, exist as bone pickers, harvesting the flesh and tech spared from total destruction.DSCF6100 DSCF6101 DSCF6106 DSCF6107

‘Barrow Wights are one of the many roles that the Lord Inheritor fills with the mutants, the survivors and the lost of this War World. This particular specimen looks like some sort of possibly unique abhuman strain, though the extremely pale skin and malnourished frame are likely due to living most of its life underground, not seeing the sun for most of its life as catastrophic battles scour the surface world. When the tides of war ebb, the Lord Inheritor begins his salvage operations and amongst the first to emerge from the underworld and behold the vast destruction under the sun are the ‘Barrow Wights.


Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor and his Arco Flagellant


He was once an extremely able bodied man of the Amalthian Puritanical Faction. Now he is very old and has fallen out of favour with his order. It appears as though he will spend his last few years with his only remaining servant, Octobe 1007.
