Description:
A sleek black hull with so many silver wards, statues and trim that from a distance the hull’s primary color appears to be silver. The fore scoop is blood red in color with gold prow figure and trim. A large Golden statue of Sanguinius stands in front of and just below the bridge.
Inside the ship the traditional iconography of the Imperium is prevalent with the addition of a silver fist holding an imperial skull. This icon is found even in the oldest parts of the ship leading many to believe that it is the ship’s original crest and the Hammer referenced in the ship’s name. Also common is the coat of arms of House Khal and their family crest.

Bio:

Fast and Agile, the Hammer has served the Khal Dynasty flawlessly from inception. Her origins are unknown, but it has obviously been heavily modified from the original Sword Frigate Pattern. Her silver and black hull is engraved with prayers to the Emperor and a statue of a hooded Sanguinius in full armor stands before the bridge to ward off the evils of the warp.

Her twin Sunsear Laser Batteries and speed makes the Hammer a perfect sniper vessel, often decapitating the enemy before they even realize the threat they face.

The Hammer has faced great hardship of late. She was cursed by a chaos sorcerer and tormented by darkness. Her crew was hunted to extinction within her hull. Daemons prowled her decks while the damned undead crew was made to entertain their new hellish masters. And as a last insult by the ruinous powers, her master was forced to abandon her.

What happened to her between then and now is a mystery, but she is safely in the Family Khal’s hands once more.

The crew will whisper on occasion that perhaps she grew enraged at the heinous acts she was being made to endure. Perhaps she rid herself of the taint dwelling within and began looking for her master. Perhaps her true name is the Malleus Malus, the Hammer of Evil. Perhaps she is to be worshiped for bringing death to Chaos….
