Fortress of Arrogance
The Fortress of Arrogance was a Baneblade tank, noted for its use by Commissar Sebastian Yarrick.
After the Second War for Armageddon, Yarrick began hunting Ghazghkull Thraka. On Golgotha, Yarrick commandeered the Baneblade super-heavy tank The Fortress of Arrogance. During the Battle of Golgotha the tank was crippled by a Stompa, and Yarrick was forced to abandon it when the Imperial forces were routed from the planet.
Before the Third War, Yarrick requested that the Fortress be reclaimed from Golgotha. During Operation Thunderstorm, an Adeptus Mechanicus Reclamator expedition found the remnants of the venerable Baneblade, and during its voyage to Armageddon upon one of the great Mechanicus Arks, it was repaired and re-fitted. Now, Yarrick once more leads armoured assaults against the greenksin hordes from the cupola of the Fortress of Arrogance.
The Fortress was refitted with an armoured cupola, giving Yarrick a "pulpit" from which to command and inspire. The turret also includes enhanced sensor and communications arrays and was repainted in the black colour of the Commissariat, with a huge skull fixed to the front of the hull.
