Dawneagle Jetbike

From 1d4chan
The Traitor Legions are gonna need a new form of lubrication for their anuses.

It is the 41st Millennium, and our Golden Wonders got a newish new Jetbike in town. By the Emperor is this vehicle sexy, arguably better looking than the already sweet looking Gyrfalcon Pattern Jetbike. If this bike looks familiar to you, that is because it was ripped straight out of the old artworks of the Custodes in these Jetbikes during the Great Crusade. It is also much smaller in size than the older Gyrfalcon. Much like a pug. How cute.

The drivers of these golden vehicles are called the Vertus Praetor. Dawneagles are often driven by Shield-Captains as well, so much so that a very special bike was built for shield-captains only. Its name is Auric Aquilas, and it protects its rider with a glorious golden force field (read: 3++ and reroll charges).

Vertus Praetor[edit]

Vertus Praetors are the shiny, fast moving Jetbikers of the Adeptus Custodes in the 41st Millennium. Eat your heart out Sammael! They ride Dawneagle-pattern jetbikes, as opposed to the Gyrfalcon jetbikes of the Agamatus squadrons back during the Heresy.

Vertus Praetors are members of the Adeptus Custodes and mirror the heavy cavalry employed by Human armies since the very dawn of time. In battle they range ahead of the main body of the Custodes' force and devastate their foes with crushing lance charges with their Interceptor Lances.

Each biker is equipped with an Interceptor Lance (with the same stats are the traditional Guardian Spear but with the ability to re-roll wounds on the charge) and either a Hurricane Bolter or a Salvo Launcher. The Salvo Launcher serves as a much needed source of anti-armor firepower. The weapon itself has two firing modes; a tank bursting Melta Missile (24" Heavy 1 S8 AP-4 D6 with the ability to re-roll wounds against vehicles) and an anti-air Flakkburst missile. (Note: for a 1 CP stratagem, if an entire unit of Praetors fires flakkburst missiles at a unit with the FLY keyword you get to reroll all failed wounds for those attacks. Good shit.) Although these are highly powerful weapons, they aren't as exotic as the Lastrum Bolt Cannon, Adrathic Devastators and Corvae Las-Pulsers of the Gyrfalcon jetbikes, possibly insinuating that even the Custodes have been effected by the technological decline in the Imperium.
