Im with Angel of Blood on this one. Though of those he listed i would say Andrej, it takes some serious balls to speak to the BLACK TEMPLARS the way he does.

Really? That many of you think those ragged scraps from a dead world, those light infantry scouts, are the hardest members of the Guard in the galaxy? Just because there are a few neat books about them doesn't make them superhuman.

He may have been retconned into an Imperial Fists Termi Captain, then a Custodes later, but the guardsman who went on to become the patron saint of all guardsmen, a certain Ollanius Pious, might very well be making a comeback in the Heresy series.

I think him being retained into a perpetual makes the sacrifice even greater to be honest!

My 2nd choice is a failed Krieg recruit.

Literally sells his life to make sure the successful guys have a chance to practice real combat before going off world.

Aren't the Cadians in general, and Kasrkin in particular, supposed to be the hardest of the hard in the entire Imperium?

Third for Pius that retcon was stupidity and nonsensical why would the emperor go ape shit over a custode who is mini primarch. That a normal man stood before horus and then got callously butchered that would make the emperor realize his boy was beyond saving

Actually yeah. Mkoll has proven himself over and over again to be a complete and utter bad ass, and hard as a coffin nail. Mckvenner is just as good as Mkoll by the end by all indications, Mkolls included. Gaunt has also proven time after time that he's not to be fucked with.

I'm still 50/50 about Pious at the moment.
