(Blog-Like-a-)Pirate-(a-)Day: Kana Starry Eye, the Hand of Dawn – a pirate for Rogue Trader

Day 17: Rogue Trader

Kana Starry Eye, the Hand of Dawn
Amongst the outcast Eldar corsairs, Kana stands apart. He does not believe in the lightning pinprick void raids otherwise considered the hallmark of corsair princes. Kana is sworn to wholesale slaughter and mostly attacks planetary targets. After a devastating orbital bombardment with transatmospheric pulsar lances, he descends with his warhost spearheaded by a trio of titans, his own midnight blue Phantom and a pair of Revenant scout titans, to grind any remaining would-be resistance to dust before picking through the ruins at his leisure.

Kana’s fleet consists of the following ships:

  • The Bringer of Dawn, Kana’s personal flagship, an Eclipse-class cruiser with Elite crew, replacing the Command Bridge with the Eldar equivalent of an Invasion Bridge, and mounting an Wraithbone War Palace as an additional component (this lends a +10 bonus to any tests for remote orders issued during planetary large scale warfare), and upgrading the standard pulsar lances with transatmospheric fire capability (when used as part of a planetary bombardment, these double the affected area, do an additional 20 damage to large units, and deal an additional 10 damage to individuals and vehicles).
  • A Hellebore-class frigate, also with transatmospheric pulsar lance
  • Two Hemlock-class frigates, both with a transatmospheric pulsar lance

Kana’s warhost comprises the following large scale units:

  • One Phantom battle titan commanded by Kana himself (Unit Strength: 100; Morale: -; Power: 48; Movement: 70)
  • Two Elite Revenant scout titans (Unit Strength: 45; Morale: -; Power: 28; Movement: 90)
  • Two Elite wings of heavy air forces consisting of the void strikecraft carried by the Bringer of Dawn (Unit Strength: 96; Morale: 100; Power: 14; Movement: 3600)
  • One Elite company of light armour using war walkers (Unit Strength: 10; Morale: 100; Power: 9; Movement: 320)
  • Two Veteran companies of light mechanised infantry using jet bikes (Unit Strength: 12; Morale: 90; Power: 7; Movement: 480)
  • One Veteran battalion of light armour using mostly Vypers (Unit Strength: 45; Morale: 90; Power: 9; Movement: 390)
  • Two Veteran battalions of medium mechanised infantry mounted in the ubiquitous Falcon (Unit Strength: 60; Morale: 90; Power: 9; Movement: 320)

I wanted Eldar corsair with a slight twist, focussing more on the ground side instead of void combat, then I took that chance to put in some titans as well with the rest growing from there.
