"Vanguard Space Marines are elite reconnaissance troops, trained to operate without support across the deadliest frontiers of the galaxy. Clad in lightweight power armour and equipped with weapons perfectly optimised for covert warfare, Vanguard warriors fight as the tip of the Adeptus Astartes spear.
Ranging far ahead of their battle-brothers, they drop behind enemy lines, deep into hostile territory. Once in position, they launch a campaign of total devastation against the enemy. Every component of the opposing war machine is taken apart piece by piece – communications are severed, key commanders assassinated, supply caches demolished and morale drained away by unrelenting terror-strikes. When the enemy are all but beaten, the Vanguard Space Marines emerge from the shadows to deliver the killing strike."
"The Vanguard Space Marines of Strike Force Shadowspear hail from the Ultramarines 2nd Company and fought with distinguished honour alongside Roboute Guilliman himself at the forefront of the Indomitus Crusade. Captain Acheran – a cunning and decisive leader whose actions have earned him numerous battle honours – was handpicked by Marneus Calgar to lead the covert investigation of Nemendghast."
"A modest and taciturn commander, Captain Acheran has found the clandestine operations of the Vanguard Space Marines perfectly suited to his skills. Rather than rely on zealous oratory, Acheran prefers to let his actions and astonishing marksmanship do the talking. Even while the fiercest battles rage about him, Acheran remains a picture of serene calmness, delivering curt orders to his warriors while blasting enemy commanders from their feet with dead-eye shots from his master-crafted bolt carbine. It’s with good reason that the Marksman’s Honour hangs from the forestock of the Captain’s firearm."
