Death Blades Company Commander

Di'Anno was a ruthless gang leader prior to his induction into the guard, and his natural leadership abilities and level head made him an obvious choice for a company commander. His reputation for ending blood feuds quickly ensured that no one challenged his authority as he took command of F Company. Unusually, Di'Anno wears the standard uniform for a captain, complete with officers hat. This is no doubt due to the recent attachment of fresh commissariat officers to the regiment after the deaths of the previous appointments.

Vindicare Assassin

Elimination of enemy leadership from the Blighted Path Nurgle Host is a fundamental component of Inquisitor Het'Fjeld's mandate. To assist in this task the Inquisitor has successfully obtained the services of the Officio Assasinorum.

At least one vindicare Assassin is present in the task force, who regularly is seen on the battlefield alongside the 9th Necromundan. As is typical of most assassins from the Vindicare temple, the persecution of enemy characters, weapon specialists and squad level leadership dominates an engagement until the opportunity arises to deliver a coup de grace on the enemy commander. In this way the Vindicare assassin provides a valuable force multiplier to the regular Imperial Guard troopers.

Inquisitor Het'Fjeld

A former member of the Ordo Militarium, the Inquisitor has more recently been battling the forces of Chaos as a member of the Ordo Malleus, largely due to the ascension of chaos in the region as a result of the escalating Sicaran War. However the Inquisitor's mandate changed with the return to real-space of a fragment of a space hulk in the sector. Initial analysis was difficult due to chaos ships picketing the hulk, however some components were positively identified as being consistent with those identified in the hulk Sin of Damnation during its famous encounter with the Blood Angels chapter of Astartes. The hulk that entered realspace was clearly a much younger conglomeration of vessels than the Sin of Damnation, and was hypothesised to be an earlier iteration of that famous hulk, from a time in the Imperium's past, potentially causing a paradox should it not return to the warp.
