Rules by Atrotos
Major Mortensen's crude mannerisms and callous disregard for authority have earned him no friends and attracted dangerous enemies. The Major is a hard man tortured daily by the memory of his homeworld's destruction and the fiery aftermath that flensed the skin from his body. He has all but forgotten what it means to be human incapable as he is of feeling pain or pleasure through his ruined nerves. Bereft of all natural comforts he has nothing to lose - a factor that plays a singular role in his fighting style and strategies.
You may replace one Storm Trooper Sergeant in your army with Major Mortensen at + 100 pts.
