oh no! it appears your religion has experienced a schism. not to worry though as we have the technology to teach them the errors of their semi-believing ways.
(note this serves mostly as a reminder to those who have forgotten what the true believers are and acts as an outline for future addition as the faction grows its sandbox)True believers
factionThe true believers
are a cell of former sentinels
founded before faction traits
they are headed by the formerly heroic brother Jeremiah.
they access to many of the units the sentinels
have developed (last seen using up to the chaplains
in their jointed development)
with their own variations mixed in (see below) identified by having red marking where the sentinel versions have orange Deacons/true believer acolytes
is a captain for the true believer`s acolyte
infantry divisions that increases the effectiveness of their combat teams, fortunatly for us they have become dependent on their leadership and become confused and scared (have the concussion
effect) upon their death.
due to having nearly identical armor to the rest of their team other than red identification markings they and their squad are easily picked off by most vehicles are even other infantry
their presence also means that any TB acolytes
in the area are vulnerable to concussion (regardless of if the deacon has died or not)
is a main battle tank is a variant of the purifier
meant to clear large swarms of clustered units and to level urban environments
their cannons have been modified to have piercing shells to better serve that role, and their chassis have been modified to increase the likelihood of their operators to survive the destruction of the tank
however these same modifications slow the tank down allowing for light vehicles
or certain types of infantry
to often run laps around them then proceed to gun down the surviving tank crew as they escape the wreckageCleric
is a varient of the vindicator meant to serve as a long range harassment
* their cannons have been modified to target low flying aircraft
* the shells they fire have an emp payload that scrambles
the weapons systems of any vehicle it touches
* and to top it off their armor is designed to allow the driver a chance to escape the wreck should the vehicle be destroyed in combat.
they are however vulnerable to the recent improvements to range made by the sharpshooter
leaving them to be outranged
their shells also are able to be dodged by skilled drivers and pilots of our light air and vehicles
leaving them open to hit and run tactics
and though not recommended infantry
are also immune to the scramble
status and thus are able to keep firing even after a direct hit from a Cleric
is a slower more heavily armored version of a valiant
with similar armaments (seeking rocket pods and a machine gun)
though it suffers similar weaknesses such as
*being unable to target high altitudes
*being weak to sustain
*their armor being melted by plasma
The Ascendant [working title as I don't know the model's actual name] Brother Jeremiah
had a personal variant of herald
only seen once in battle, it bolsters health slightly lower than that of an omega herald but higher than that of an elite herald
they have not been seen with * prophets*caretakers*envoys
but be aware as the development of such weapons is not out of the realm of possibility for them.
