Post subject:  Nautican Unit Profile Competition

I'm working on a major new release of the Nautican Army and am asking for some help from anyone interested in getting involved in the project. I have three miniatures that I purchased specifically for the army even though I have not yet come up with profiles for them.

I'm inviting people to suggest profiles (including pts cost) and even the fluff (ie. background / story) for the miniatures. They can either be special character profiles or unit profiles (probably rare or maybe special units). I don't plan to purchase any more of these particular models so they will be stand alone and must not form part of a multi-model unit of the same type (although they could join other units)

You suggest the profiles for any or all of the models and I will include them and credit you in the army book pdf and the army blog (and link to your site if you have a Warhammer related blog or web page).

Please take into account the composition of the current army book, I will not be including a unit that unbalances the army or is ridiculously powerful.

This is what they look like...

Model 1 - we'll call him Squid-cheeks for now...

Model 2 - I was thinking of calling "her" Aqualien or Predaqualien...
Image

Model 3 - The Reefer (a name I think I might stick with)
Image

Models 2 and 3 are about Ogre size, model 1 is a lot larger and more like a "Storm of Magic" type of monster.

Well Squidface at the top, should either be named a Man'O War or Ktulu if its a character.
No ideas for its profile yet, but I will notify you if I think of something.

The second, I think I had an idea about a Sea Dragon, but hey name it as you wish.

The Third should be Mermoids, I already have a statline for them:

Unit NameMWsBsSTWIALd

Unit NameMWsBsSTWIALd

Special Rules: 5+ Scaly Skin, Sea Creature, Skirmishers, Causes Fear, Bloody Frenzy; Creatures of the Reefs
Unit Size: 6-20
Equipment: Fangs and Claws (Hand Weapons)
They have no Upgrades other then the Champion (Exalted)

Story:
Mermoids were once Merfolk who had once inhabited the seas, side by side with Nauticans, but once Chaos came, some Nautican colonies were left isolated and detached from the ruined Underwater Empire. Exposed to great amounts of Chaotic energies, those Merfolk had mutated into hideous creatures that stalk the seas, hence the Mermoids came into existence. The Mermoids are vicious carnivores, who prefer the flesh of surfacedwellers the most, be it a bird floating on the surface of water, or an entire crew of a ship. They use their claws to rip their prey open so their long and powerful jaws could rip chunks of meat straight of the bone. The Nauticans were able to tame some of these beasts and bring some form of order to them. The Nautican armies used them as a vanguard of their land assaults, for they had developed a form of primitive lung that allows them to breath air for quite some time. But because they had mutated so much, some had even managed to loose the ability to speak or think straight. Some few are still great leaders, and organize their packs, they are the Exalted, and they have little problems disobeying orders from a Nautican or Mermaid. But those are just some, many still remain in the darkest parts of the oceans, dwelling in the wrecks of barges they had sunk and decorating themselves with the bones of those they had slain.

No problem, also I had added the story for Mermoids, I think you might find it interesting :)

Thanks Drac, I'm working on the Nautican book tomorrow and Monday and will take a good look at your ideas and have a think about the Mermoids.
