  • Astropath Eckhart may make an additional Hit and Run attack during Spaceship Combat by leading the Death Bastards in battle. If he does so, he treats Command as a Trained Skill. The Death Bastards gain +5 to all Characteristics while led by Astropath Eckhart during Boarding Actions.

The unit of men aboard the In Purgatio Lumen dedicated to shock attacks and boarding actions. Earned their name in a boarding action against Chaos heretics 007.826.M41, three of their number engaging in personal combat with the Chaos-tainted commander of the Rending of the Innocent.

Following the Conquest of the Emperors Bounty, the Death Bastards again distinguished themselves in combat, but the exposure to the reanimated crew and the battle with the warp-possessed captain they have begun to show certain troubling aspects, but still remain exceptional shock troops in combat.

Update 007.826.M41, Author: Astropath Transcendant Eckhart
