And They Shall Know No Fear...
Vance "Motherfucking" Stubbs
He’s Vance. Motherfucking. Stubbs. An Imperial Guard general and total badass from Dawn of War: Soulstorm. He’s the most badass Governor General….ever….well maybe at tie with General Sturnn who’s equally awesome.
Vance Stubbs leads the 252nd Kaurava Conservator Regiment for the Imperial Guard in the game. He is armed (apparently like every other Command Squad leader in the Galaxy) with a set of Power Claws and bolters strapped to his arms. He may also, in fact, have a Thunder Hammer for a penis, but his harem of lovers were all too exhausted to comment on the matter.
When facing the Imperial Guard at their stronghold on Kaurava , Stubbs’ Commissar informs him that all 100 of the Baneblades that would have been available to defend had just been sent off to help the Imperial Guard elsewhere in the Kaurava system, and any more Baneblades that are needed will have to be constructed via a series of pieces sent out by supply Rhinos. This absurdity of simply “losing” 100 Baneblades has spawned a number of jokes amongst players, mostly associating him with being “Tactically incompetent” as opposed to Creed’s “Tactical Genius”. However, there has been rumors that the Baneblades never left, but they were hidden by Creed. Regardless, Vance Stubbs is seen as one of the most awesome Imperial Guard generals because of his calm, stern voice, even when his army is on the brink of defeat.
