The Battle of Castobel
Goremann the Elder
Venerable Dreadnought of the Crimson Fists.
Goremann is a celebrated veteran of the Crimson Fists Chapter that served honourably in the Deathwatch on fifteen occasions prior to his installation into Dreadnought armour. Goremann’s craft and cunning as an Ork fighter were legendary and it is said that at the battle of Urkano Rift even the Orks chanted Goremann’s name to honour him after he slew their Warboss in single combat. During Goremann’s last Vigil five centuries ago, he suffered mortal wounds and at his request the Deathwatch petitioned the Crimson Fists for his remains to be kept at Watch Fortress Erioch. Now he rests in the cyborganic web of an armoured sarcophagus so that in time of need he can fight alongside his battle-Brothers once more.
Goremann’s favoured Dreadnought armour is the war machine called Furiuosa Rex with its twin power fists and underslung flamers. In battle, Goremann’s devastating charge can level a horde of lesser foes, crushing them beneath a terrifying avalanche of adamantium fists and steel limbs.
Thankfully, such heavyweight support is seldom required in the field and Goremann’s experience more often serves the Deathwatch in tactical analyses and threat assessments. In truth, the old warrior chafes at such mundane work and will seize on any opportunity to see action again.
Inserted on Castobel during the final stages of the counter attack, Brother Goremann relished the opportunity to be in active duty once again. The Tyranid threat was seriously diminished by his insertion, and he is awaiting action in the mop up of the tyranid invasion.
