Genestealers and Genestealer Cultists are by far my favourite races in the 41st millenium, so it was only a matter of time before I made a warband out of them...

Left arm seems weak and crippled due to genetic mutation and is practically useless.
Scratch over eye does not impede vision.
Dim and slow-witted. Follows orders and does not seem to have much free will.
Born into the Genestealer cult ‘the children of the skymother’ “Dakka”, as he came to be known, had been selectively bred to embody his forefather’s strength. His father had been a dim, slow-witted lumbering hulk which, upon seeing him, made people wonder whether he had ogryn heritage. Most of these traits were passed down to Dakka, yet sometimes if you watched the care and precision he treated towards his weapon, you wondered whether or not he was as dim as he made out to be. His aggressive nature got him into lots of fights when he was younger. One particular trophy of these brawls was a large scratch down his left eye, obtained when he got on the wrong end of a death cultist’s sword.
To begin with he was used to lift heavy weights. His left arm, left weak and crippled due to genetic mutation, was a burden, and meant he was not as favoured as some of the other cultists due to his two strong arms being on his right. He was often sent out when brute force was required, sent as a shock troop to soak up fire and smash down walls and various pieces of important machinery. He first acquired his taste for firearms when he ripped out an autocannon turret off a PDF emplacement. He used it initially as a club, but soon he realised that it might be more effective if he squeezed that little bit of metal that the other side had been pressing as he charged up to them. After that he began experimenting with different weapons in his spare time, and found that he preferred the high rate of fire of the auto weapons to the single, yet more powerful, shot of a rifle. The autocannon had been a bit heavy and awkward to hold, so he set about building his own rapid-fire weapon out of various weapons he acquired on his orders. The higher authorities were aware of this activity, so next time he was sent out he was told that he would be providing supporting fire and to bring his gun. The operation was a success, which made him incredibly pleased. Further operations yielding successful results eventually earned him the nickname ‘Dakka’. Before then he was either referred to as ‘you’ or by his number.
I'm also working on a Maelignaci at the moment. After that I will probably work on a Genestealer Magus.
Comments and critiscism much appreciated
