Baltaten Actus Pho - The Rustking of Ferrugo Pass
Servos groaned and whined as they moved the heavy door from where it had stood closed for decades. Diagonal beams of sunlight illuminated the orange dust that dry winds swirled through the open doorway.
The sound of distorted vox-chatter, a mix of static, binharic cant and low gothic, accompanied the clatter of metal feet uplon metal gratings. A small group of ParaSkitarii filed out of the doorway and into the daylight for the first time in many years. They scanned the horizon for signs of movement and unusual energy readings. When they were satisfied their leader keyed a rune on his augmetic mask and transmitted a code.
The towering form of the Rustking scuttled out onto the balcony and looked out across the desert from his vantage point, high in the tower that topped the immense Tor, known as The Cauldron. A mobile exploration, drilling and pumping platform the size of a city, that slowly lumbered across the sands of the Ferrugo Pass.
The Rustking is the leader of the group known as Anomaly Protocol, a decaying Adeptus Mechanicus warband from Ferrugo Pass on the desert world of Tor Megiddo. He will take the role of an "End of Level Boss" type character for our open play Kill Team campaign that should start next month.
