Where'd y'all get your character(s)?

What it says on the tin:

Personally, the only character I've rolled out - Junior Commissar Sharpe - is from an old RP arc, but his regiment (the Scintillan 591st Light Armored) is from my Frakkin' Yuge List O' Regiments that I made back when I got into OW for a while.

He was, at the time, designed to be then what Talon isn't - a commissariat noble who isn't your friend. He wouldn't play bones with you, let you skate on duty or off, and was more of a traditional commissar than not. He was abrasive and pompous and had no qualms letting you know he thought he was better than you.

Now, this is a younger, less idealized version of him, but the traits are still there and I look forward to seeing where he goes.

That being said, I have more characters and regiments up my sleeve that I'm excited to bring to the table later.

Where did you get your character idea from? Did you make him/her/it just for this shiny forum or did you port over from somewhere else?

How about your regiment? Port it over from Only War or slap one together just for us?

What about y'all?

My dear Lucas came to me specifically for the forum. When it comes to roleplaying in general, unless I'm the GM I generally stick to the comic-relief--sure, I'll make important decisions and shoot the enemy when necessary, but in the meantime I like to have a silly character who's just a nice guy. I kind of let this shine through with my little Guardsman, but it gets me worried, since I like him so much, but knowing the average lifespan of Guardsmen and comparing that to his overly-amicable nature, I feel like someone's going to have reason to kill him at some point...

I also made an officer from Lucas's regiment, though I'm not likely to use him much (he's too serious for my taste, really), and he's mostly just a name I can draw from a hat when I want Lucas to run around with slips of paper to hand off to people (a good reason for including myself in a thread that I want to stop by in).

His regiment, meanwhile, was based loosely on an idea I had a while back about a regiment comprised entirely of 'heretics' (everything from blaspheming the Emperor and his supposed bowel movements to kissing an Eldar--it was a joke idea, mostly). Since I was cautious concerning how the Empire actually deals with heretics, I just went with a penal legion, and since Lucas is too goody-goody to be a criminal, I just said he was born and raised in a penal colony's local Guard.

Design for the uniform was heavily inspired by the Steel Legion, there's really no covering that, but at least I tried adding more of a WWI British-Infantry flair to it.

Overall, my understanding of Warhammer is sparce at best, which has had some effect on my character and his interactions, but I'm decent enough at generalization and making things up as I go that I've yet to have any really major conflicts between how I think stuff works and how it actually works--and to anybody that catches me doing something out of line from lore later down the line, a quick nudge in the right direction and a bit of grace on an uneducated pleb like myself can go a long way.

For Talon, he and his brother were supposed to be a mix between two things, the Weasley twins and two hilarious assholes I ran into years ago, wargamers and general troublemakers, also twins, and one was named Talon. They were the sons of another player character I had, and throw-away npcs at the time. When I ran into this group I pulled Talon out from stock and put him to work. for a while I wasn't even entirely decided if it was Talon or his brother Tarick. He was supposed to be a young idiot kid, and a fanboy of Ciaphas Cain. Joined up for all the wrong reasons.

Kosomov was infinitely more simple. Just a scruffy heavy weapons woman with an obsession over explosives, and who'd inhaled a little too much solvent over the years. Brilliant, totally uninterested in anything outside her work, unkempt, and a touch homicidal.

I always liked the look of Kasrkins, and since I haven't done any really roleplaying(outside of D&D) I sort f went with a bit of a basic character. I decided that a cut and dry Cadian was a bit too bland, so I made him a pyromaniac Sapper that like to be friends(until the fire starts spreading).

Hope to meet a lot of interesting character and go on adventures to beat the filthy xeno scum

When ever I make a character, I always either, try to check what the party needs or pick something that hardly gets chosen. Seeing as we had at the time a lot of guardsman, I tried to go with something else. Checking the Only War book, I went with the Priest. Can see combat, but can also be used for other stuff, like holding a sermon or something. The name, I just looked at the books I have lying around. Livy from, Livy, Rome's Italian Wars. Books 6-10 and Israel, from Israel, Dutch Primacy in World Trade, 1585-1740 (I study History). After that, I check the lore about the Imperial Faith and it kinda snowballed from there. Also helped that I read the Gaunt's Ghosts novels and Ciaphas Cain novels. I took inspiration from the priest in the Gaunt's Ghost novels and from Ciaphas Cain, the word Emperor Bother. That's how Livy came about.

My idea for 2557 was a cross of many ideas. But mostly it came down to a character I thought up way back who got in over her head. As for the regiment for her The Morgus Miners, it was a joke originally. Just the guys to be there in the background always doing their own thing speaking an indecipherable language of their own and getting mad when people think they're a different regiment. Plus I really liked the idea of a regiment that specialized in digging into places to set up odd outposts and ambushes.

Tavor Beltarix was a stupid idea I had back when there was an RP post on the Eagle Ordinary Facebook page. First name's from a character in a sketch made by a trio of Italian comedians I had been watching at the time, surname's just a manipulation of "Bellatrix", since I had that name in mind at the time - most random names I could ever throw together. Anyway, I was originally going to go for something "normal", as far as 40K soldiers went, but then I said to myself "Oh, man, Space Marines are cool... but I can't have a Marine in the Guard... or can I?"

And, well, the bad fanboy/cosplay of an Ultramarine was born. I fleshed him out some more, made him a bit crazier, and the stupid idea became even dumber.

I think someone like him would be executed at one point or another for a dozen different reasons. His very presence feels like a violation of canon on so many levels you wouldn't believe. Well, at least he's not really IG, per se... more like the Adoring Fan from Oblivion, only scarier, bigger, and actually armed.

@Coke, They do both. They set up their secret buried outposts, where else can they hope to store their three vehicles per squad. They are loaded and after the motorpool fire they are removing everything they have to a different 'more secure' locale. I imagine they got here fairly early as part of their first deployment and got wrecked with the rest of them.

@Shanaar, So far they are, though I fear she will get executed for her cons one day.

I play 40k and I run a converted guard / skitarii army (I was making skitarii before the army existed, alright alright alright). My two soldiers are based on the lore I've established for it. The names I've chosen for them were pulled out of a hat for the moment. As my army performs well, certain models will earn their names.

Here is my command squad:

My idea for Levy Dayton Frankson was I wanted to play a feudal world conscript who would keep constantly asking uncommon questions, spooked by stuff that he wouldn't understand but are standard things in 40k, and be unfamiliar with his new environment . As I was writing him up I decide to give a sense of honor and chivalry. His pronunciation of th's word and is as iz was to show the fact he was from a feudal world. Also Dayton Frankson is a recurring alias I keep using for characters I play.

@Coke, Ya know I hadn't thought about making that a thread but that could be a good escort type thing. And trust me, I have been bothering mods already lol. They will probably hate me before long.

@Kaiser, in all fairness you have a fantastic webcomic behind it and this is now the only place I know of for 40k RP.

I was building a Tempestus killteam when I came to this forum, that's where my character came from.
