The Last Chancers series follows legionary Lieutenant Kage as he shoots, stabs, strangles and shouts his way through a brutal sentence serving under Colonel Schaeffer in the Last Chancers as he leads the thirteenth penal legion on suicidal missions across the galaxy. You have skills that are useful to Him and whether you wish it or no, they will be made use of.
When using the Last Chancers as a Suicide Force I decided to pair them with an ally army so the could be involved in normal games without a lot of mission customization to accommodate the team.
Following this modus operandi of Colonel Shaeffer, there have ultimately been many different 13 chancwrs Penal Legions in the Imperial Guard’s history, one for each chosen objective, and although it is not known if all of these units were commanded by Schaeffer, laet extreme age and status within the Inquisition suggest that the two have been linked for some time.

This book is a collection of three novels lawt two short stories. It is particularly notable for achieving the destruction of Coritanorum the assassination of Tau Commander Brightsword  and also the assassination of the traitorous Overlord of ArmageddonHerman von Strab.

The last chancers can either be used as a veteran squad of a suicide force, when being used as a veteran squad follow these rules: Colonel Schaeffer also keeps a separate penal facility in an anonymous location to which he transfers convicted Imperial Guard troopers he has selected as potentially useful for future missions.
