3rd Ed (and possibly before) preacher Special Character. Can't find my books offhand.

fantastic, so I guess third edition means I cant use his rules... Oh well still a cool model.

His name is 'Jacobus' incidentally. He'll be in Codex:Sisters of Battle.

I always think of that Uriah Heap tune when I hear his name. Can't remember it right now...wikipedia?

here we go! Great tune for an Inquisitor so I'm a postin!

/Uriah Heap/
She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the midwinter wind
I know not how she found me
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers
Without thought of love or God
And I begged her give me horses
To trample down my enemies
So eager was my passion
To devour this waste of life


But she wouldn't think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin
And yet impossible to end
For she's the mother of our men
Who counselled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay


Oh, lady let your hair dark fly
And let me rest here at your side
Have faith and trust
In peace she said
And filled my heart with life
There is no strength in numbers
Have no such misconception
But when you need me
Be assured I won't be far away


Thus having spoke she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw
Her black coat disappear
My labour is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I find new heart each time
I think upon that windy day
And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her
As your prize
And say hello for me

He was a Missionary of the very heroic kind, given the title Protector of the Faith. At Solstice he led an army of feudal knights and crossbowmen to victory against a Genestealer cult, and after that he converted twenty-two Segmentum Tempestus worlds to the Imperial Creed before dying from a lung virus on the death world Gorang.

crazy, thanks so much, I was asking because he isnt in the sisters of battle codex.

That's weird. You're not looking in the Witch Hunters dex, are you?

I was looking in the sob, space marines, and imperial guard and I didnt see him, but those are all fourth edition so I suppose thats why.

You want the Second Edition Codex, that's actually called Codex: Sisters of Battle. Nice background on the Ecclesiarchy in it, shame my old one was in my attic when the roof leaked :(

Codex: SoB is one of the truly great books from GW (IMHO).
