Much smaller than modern day Stormers Taanesh used to wear off world high end isolation suits or business dress.
Now for his sins he wears tarnished damaged armour that he could barely afford.

Taanesh is from the 3rd generation of Stormers made from Taarnish.
He is hundreds of years old and for most of his life never got into combat one of the main reasons he is alive today.
When Taanesh was created he was set to go to a war world immediately along with the rest of his batch brothers. The Ministry of War decided it wanted a war reporter that could actually survive one thus avoiding the years of training for 20 minutes of footage they had been getting.
So Taanesh was given a quick media course and a camera, but no weapons.
Ordered by the Ministry of War to observe but not get involved, a direct order from the company he was forced to obey although it conflicted with his every instinct in his genetic make-up.
For centuries Taanesh has watched battle, seen a thousand worlds fall, seen entire species and civilisations wiped from the universe.
Until 2 weeks ago.
On the war world Tartarus where he had been stationed for the last decade he had befriended a unit that he was touring with.
They came under heavy fire from Thresher troops who threatened to overwhelm them.
Taanesh’s standing orders were to disengage and observe. When it became obvious that every man would count in this skirmish and the S.L.A. troops could win if they had a little more help. Taanesh couldn’t wait he picked up the weapons of one of the fallen soldiers waged war.
It was the single most glorious moment of his life. The S.L.A. forces won the day with massive casualties.
The Fallout involved the Ministry of War giving Taanesh a choice. Get a gene patch that would prevent him from entering combat. Genetic cowardice is how Taanesh viewed it.
Alternatively he could lose everything. His money, his status, his access and rank. He would be sent to Mort to create whatever life he wanted but he could never leave and he would have nothing.
Taanesh took his opportunity signed up as a combat operative. He is poor, hungry, badly equipped but he feels alive.
For the first time in 400 years.
