Backstory: Hunter Cadre Unbreaking Wave is a cadre from Fal'shia Sept, ever eager to fight for the Greater Good. Although sometimes seen as mavericks due to their use of experimental suits and unusual tactics, they get results and have the scars to prove their experience. (More to come later.)
Here's a picture of my army and how it's coming together:
- Aun'vre Fal'shia Ko'vash (King Wordbearer): A member of the Ethereal cast attached to the cadre to oversee and guide their efforts. Primarily takes to the field as a motivational speaker who also guides the fire of his warriors through the use of two Marker Drones. A firm believer in the balance between Mont'ka and Kauyon, he is rewarded for his secondary role as peacekeeper with deference and unending loyalty from the other leaders of the cadre.
- Strike Team Wavecrest: A team of dedicated Fire Warriors who are trained to predict enemy movement patterns in order to fire more accurately. They are led by Shas'ui Nan-Yanoi, a canny and adaptable veteran warrior who earned his rank through stellar service during Warzone Damocles.
- Longknife Pack: A pack of Kroot who favour Sniper rounds and long range combat, unusually for Kroot, hence the name.
- Crisis Team Bravo: Renowned throughout their sept for being extremely daring, these XV8 Crisis Suit-wearing veterans are armed to deal with both infantry and vehicles. They are led by Shas'vre Windjammer, a hero of a long series of battles against the Necrons of Kaurava III from the Kaurava campaign.
- Pathfinder Team Swiftwind: A team of armed and dangerous Scouts, three of whom are armed with Railrifles to assassinate important foes. Have been known to split up into smaller groups to cover more ground and mark more targets. They are led by Shas'ui Kir'qath, whose lack of willingness to heed superiors got him passed around between various cadres before he ended up where he is now.
- Broadside Shas'vre Stormbreaker: Set up in a XV88 Broadside Battlesuit, he has a long history of victory against the Orks. Stormbreaker once held the line against an advance by the Kult of Speed on an important Tau world alongside his brethren, personally sniping the warboss leading the charge and blasting several Ork vehicles with his Heavy Railrifle. His presence on the battlefield is an inspiration to the cadre.
Not pictured because I don't have the models yet:
- Shas'o Aloh (Commander Coldwind): A tough-as-nails soldier who firmly believes in the principles of Mont'ka. She comes across as loud and proud, but in reality is a very capable soldier and military leader.
- Shas'nel Sunwatcher: A Cadre Fireblade who leans more towards Kauyon. He sometimes butts heads with his superior, but his results ensure that he remains among her greatest strategic advisers.
- Stealth Team Omicron: A stealth team armed with burst cannons. One of two new teams who have been recently transferred over to the cadre.
- Stealth Team Omega: A stealth team armed with burst cannons and one fusion blaster wielded by team leader Shas'vre Kais. The other new team recently transferred over.
- Ghostkeel Shas'vre Silentsword: Leader of the sub-team Ghostwalker, an Optimised Stealth Cadre with teams Omicron and Omega. She is very cunning and self-assured. Trained in the use of several Ghostkeel weapons and systems.
- Vespid Stingwing Strain "Hoverkill": Nicknamed for their flight-and-fight combat style. Led by the Stingwing Elder (Name Translation: One That Drifts On The Tides).
- Shaper Traksel: Leader of the Longknife Pack and a longtime ally of Commander Coldwind. Like all Kroot, he is rather snarky.
- Broadside Team Bluelightning: So named for their "thunder and lightning" technique - while Broadside Hero Stormbreaker is armed with a Heavy Railrifle, his comrades are armed with High-Yield Missile Pods. Veterans of many missions against the Orks.
Well, that's what I've got for my army so far. Hope you like it and I'll post more photos as I get more models.
