Emil Jaeger and his Headhunters

Emil Jaeger spent his early life on the imperial planet of Athonia,
his young years consumed by gang warfare and gambling. When he was
23, he won a bet with one of his fellow gamblers for a Neon star
blaster, a light 8 man spacecraft. He spent his times travelling the
galaxy becoming a skilled mechanic as well as vicious combatant,
training on the planets of Krieg, Tallarn, Catachan and many more
from his tough upbringing he was more than an apt student in all
their different fighting arts, but never settled but carried on
travelling. Later he became a mercenary and assassin, preferring to
kill his enemy from afar, but never failing to draw his legendary
Kukri knife in the direst circumstances. He began to take acolytes
who he trained in the art of sniping, as well as field craft, who
accompanied him on his covert assignments; his acolytes later became
known as the Headhunters, due to their vast number of confirmed
Around the same time Emil purchased several prototype Proton long
rifles, very powerful snipers. On the battlefield Emil has been known
extremely hard to kill, underestimated in his knowledge of trickery,
many have claimed to have killed Emil, but only for another to have
sighted him in battle shortly after, some have even claimed to have
taken his head, only to find that it is actually the head of one
of their fallen comrades. An excellent mechanic, survivalist and
combatant, many enemy hero has been killed by his snipers bullet,
he also carries a lowly Las pistol, many of his victims have laughed
when he has drawn it, only to have been incinerated by its overloaded
blast. Emil Jaeger still travels the galaxy now, fighting in many
skirmishers, battles, and even full scale campaigns.

Emil Jaeger

Unit composition: Emil Jaeger and 2-5 Headhunters


Emil Jaeger only:

Carapace armour,

Headsnatcher: Headsnatcher was the first prototype of the proton long
rifles, the set of snipers specially designed and commissioned by
Emil Jaeger himself. This one was custom made by Emil, made from a
light but immensely strong material and with added scopes, aiming
sights and red dots. Headsnatcher is a proton long rifle with an AP
value of 1. In addition any roll to hit of 6 will wound on a 2+ and
any roll to hit of 4 or 5 will wound on a 3+.

Overloaded Las pistol
Emil Jaeger also carries a greatly feared overloaded Las pistol, it
is possible for this Las pistol to release a potentially devastating

blast. An overloaded Las pistol counts as a normal Las pistol, but
once per game he may fire an overloaded shot, it has the same range
and type, but fires at strength 10 AP 1 and is subject to the gets
hot! Rule.

Kukri knife
Emil’s legendary Kukri knife doubles as both a multi purpose tool and
vicious weapon, in close combat it counts as a master crafted power
weapon an may be used along with his Las pistol to grant him an extra
attack, even if he has fired his proton long rifle this turn.

Headhunters only:

Las pistol, close combat weapon, Flak armour

Proton long rifle
A Proton long rifle is a ranged weapon with the following profile:

Lightlash Charges
It is a well known fact that both Emil and His Headhunters are
campers. Often when they set up behind cover they will fit Lightlash
charges directly in front of them to fend of any close quarters
attack. Lightlash charges are small metal canisters filled with
the extremely flammable liquid promethium, on contact with air
the promethium instantly flares up temporally blinding the enemy.
Lightlash charges are defensive grenades, but roll 3D6+3 for armour

Clearing equipment
Emil and his Headhunters will never go to battle without some form of
clearing equipment, ranging from a simple spade to high tech laser
cutters. Clearing equipment grants Emil Jaeger and his squad the Move
through cover special rule.

Emil and his Headhunters always wear some sought of camouflage. Camo
gear grants Emil and his squad the Stealth special rule.

Domino fields
Emil possesses arcane Domino fields, based on technology given to

activated, confusing the enemy and causing them to strike thin air.

against Emil Jaeger and his squad.
