CAPTAIN ARGENTUS Captain Argentus is a Space Marine Captain of the Silver Skulls Chapter, represented by a Primaris Captain miniature with a subtle head-swap kitbash. is example explains how we created a custom namedcharacter datasheet appropriate for this famed champion of Humanity. As the starting point we used the Primaris Captain datasheet from Codex: Space Marines, Marines , arming Argentus with a power sword and a master-craed stalker bolt rie, as well as a b olt pistol pistol and frag and krak grenades. To have achieved his rank, Argentus must be a greatly skilled warrior and a veteran of many campaigns – to reect this we made him a Mighty Hero, allowing six selections to be generated from the tables on the previous pages. We decided to pick the selections, rather than rolling them randomly, to ensure they t with his equipment, personality, style of leadership and tactics.
e rst thing we chose to improve is Argentus’ equipment. Having fought in many battles against the T’au Empire, Argentus uses his bolt rie, Silverstrike, to pierce the armour of their battlesuits and slay the pilot within. To represent this, we selected the Penetrator Rounds and Articer Weapon results from the Weapon Improvements table to improve the Armour Penetration and Damage characteristics of his master-craed stalker bolt rie to match this storied weapon. Next, we wanted to show how Argentus commands his company in battle. Argentus directs the repower of his warriors with consummate skill. As such, we chose the Targeting Augury and Direct Fire abilities from the Additional Abilities table. As the Silver Skulls are known for their use of prognosticators to divine the future, we also selected
the Foresight ability to represent the visions visions of the future presented presented to Argentus by his advisors. Finally, we chose the Ferocious Combatant result from the Characteristic Modiers table to increase Argentus’ Attacks characteristic, representing the Silver Skulls’ practice of slaying powerful enemies in close combat.
