Story: Brigham Payne, known as the Blooded Fist, is the renowned Captain of the Blood Scorpions “Crimson Claws” 2nd company. A responsibility hard-earned through decades of war serving in the Blood Scorpions’ elite 1st Company, the Deathstalkers, on Demelonia V.
A legendary fighter and charismatic battle leader, Payne served exclusively in the ranks of the terminator squads during his service with the Deathstalkers. Payne led over a thousand missions into the heart of Necron tomb worlds, slaying a god-like C’Tan in in single combat.
As one of Lord Commander Dyrk’s most trusted men, Dyrk felt that only Payne could fill the important leadership role left vacant by the fallen Captain Pollus, and promoted Payne to Captain of the Crimson Claws. Payne accepted his new charge, but requested his terminator squad follow him to the 2nd company, deviating from standard codex procedures.
