Here is the Bio for the Shocktrooper:
At night on the planet of Jalldoon, the inhabitants of the rural towns and villages bolt their doors while they prepare for another night of restless sleep. Their anxiety stems from the dark days they live in, and while Baron Draktholm’s conquest stretches ever farther across the land they will not know peace. Most numerous of the Baron’s vile servants are the Shocktroopers, who’s numbers expand daily. These emotionless brutes were once peaceful citizens of Jalldoon until Draktholm’s Terror Squad took them by force from their homes, and delivered them to the labs inside the Dark Citadel. There they were brainwashed into submission, but evil science never stops there now does it? Not under Draktholm’s iron rule it doesn’t, and the poor soul’s bodies are placed in an addictive nutrient sludge bath. This creates soldiers who need the goo or they will cease to function. The distinctive dome helmets of the Shocktroopers is locked in place upon completion of the “training” program and never removed, but if in battle it happens to be knocked off the being underneath without the goo to sustain them will after a short time completely cease to function. Remorseless and relentlessly loyal to the Baron, they strike terror in all who run afoul of them. Fully capable of working on their own they are a menace, but when they are led into battle by the legendarily evil Slime, General Skale become downright panic inducing. Shocktroopers are wildly aggressive to anyone who is not aligned with their master’s evil goals, but they have a standing order to destroy Prince Algor at all costs. Algor’s running tally currently has him at 876 Shocktrooper kills this year alone.
Also a BRAND NEW TEWOJ Story for your enjoyment:
A Day in The Life: The Shocktrooper’s Story.
The dream is always the same. I’m in a village with a family, and I’m happy so very happy. Until the Shocktroopers show up and pull me screaming from my home. I see my wife bleeding on the floor of our hut as they start for my son. I struggle, so one of them hits me with his shock baton…everything goes to black.
I wake up, and the dream takes a second to fade before I remember a far more pressing issue.
How are my Juice levels?
I check the meters on my armor. Thank the Gods,still five percent left before I’m empty. As I unlatch the straps keeping secured to the wall I look around. Most of my unit is either still asleep or on patrol. I pull up the time, and I’ve still got a bit before sunrise. As I make my way over to the Juicing Bays I pass some of the night shift heading back towards their racks, and they nod their shiny black domed helmets at me as I nod in reply. At the Juicing Bay the Hogashin Juice Master chuckled “ehhh Trooper couldn’t wait for a fill up huh?” he remarked as he clamped the hose into the port unthaw back of my helmet. I felt the satisfying feeling of my helmet filling up.
After heading down the black rock halls to briefing I was sent out on perimeter patrol with five other Troopers, and as we headed outside the gates of the Dark Citadel the sun beat down on the scraggly terrain between the Tower and the river separating Baron Dracktholm’s domain from the Inari Grasslands.
Ninety percent Juice levels.
We walked for about an hour without incident before a call came in. A Platoon of Troopers had a run in with Prince Algor on the outskirts of Barrwood Forrest, and the Prince had commandeered one of their fighters. We all drew our Blaster Rifles as the Commander turned his scanner on we could hear the soft ping of the scan going out and then the fast beeping of an incoming fighter. In the distance the sound of a Fighter going full speed could be heard, and it wasn’t long before we saw it barreling quickly towards us.
Eighty-six percent Juice Levels.
All six of us fired at the incoming Fighter with blaster bolts streaking through the sky as Prince Algor expertly zigged and zagged around our shots. I slowed down and let the Juice flow through me a second before squeezing my trigger… SUCESS I landed a shot right in the back power supply of the fighter as it spiraled out of the sky. I felt great about myself for about one second, until I realized it was going to land right where we were standing. I managed to jump aside as the ship crashed with a huge explosion where we were.
Shake the fog away. Quick scan still at eighty-six percent.
The smoking wreckage of the fighter smoldered next to me as I saw the bodies of the others sprawled around…well what was left of them of that is. No sign of the Slime Prince, but one would assume he got splattered by the force of the explosion. I picked up the Commander’s scanner as I prepared to call in to base that I had finally gotten the legendary Prince Algor. My mind wandered to the mass of Juice I’d be rewarded with for killing the Slime. I checked my levels again.
Eighty-five point seven percent Juice levels. The excitement must have sped up the intake process.
As I was about to click my radio on I heard a sound behind me, and I tuned around just in time to see Prince Algor swinging his sword at me. The force of the blow knocked my helmet clean off my body.
I tried to catch it in my hands as the Juice spilled everywhere on the ground beneath me. The startling realization that the Juice in my system would be burned through in about five minuets crushed me with sadness. I collapsed to the ground as I saw Prince Algor walking away with his Slime friend in tow. I laid on the ground trying to suck the last of the Juice out of the dirt, and as my head finally cleared from the crippling addiction of the chemical that had been pumped into my body by Baron Dracktholm I remembered my family. Suddenly the dreams made sense..they weren’t dreams, but memories of the life I had before I was kidnapped. My wife, my son…both dead, killed by these poor souls that had the same thing happen to them at some point. My sadness at dying was now replaced with a burning hatred of Baron Dracktholm,and as my organs stopped working with the lack of Juice to keep them alive my thoughts turned to my family.I’d finally be seeing them again soon.
The world slowly faded to black as the sweet release of death took me.
These figures will be produced as a pre-order made to order, and shipped in the order they are placed in.
