Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"

Ave Omnissiah!

My blog is primarily my own personal fluff in the Warhammer 40,000 universe regarding the Draconis system such as the Knight House Yato in Draconis III, the Imperial Guard...I mean, Astra Militarum regiment trained there, the Draconian Armored Defenders, and the Forge World of Draconis IV with its Adeptus Mechanicus priesthood, Cybernetica cohorts and Skitarii legions, and the Titan Legion, Legio Draconis, known as the Dark Dragons.

Oh, and I'll throw in the Thousand Sons from time to time because they're my favorite Space Marine Legion. I refuse to believe that they are Traitors! They're just...ahem...secretly loyal to the Imperium!

And so my super-heavy tank is built!

Would have posted this earlier, but I was too busy writing my thesis, responding to emails and doing work. I wanted to write a bit more for my story, but I was too tired, which is too bad. And my thesis and work take priority over the story.

So before I go to bed on the back of an exhausting day, here's the Stormsword/Shadowsword/variants that I've finally finished building today.

Thankfully, I found out that I can have up to five different variants of the Shadowsword. YAY! I just need to swap the barrels here and there. I might not even need the magnets, but admittedly the barrels are very loose and have the tendency to fall off. Argh. Anyway, here they are.

The Banehammer! With a Commissar and a couple of heavy flamers nearby. Not sure if I'll use the Banehammer much.

The signature Shadowsword! Be careful, its Volcano Cannon can immolate even a Titan in destructive fury.

The Banesword. Having the capability to reach out and touch someone. Maybe I can troll the Warhammer players several tables away.

The Doomhammer. Now this I will be using most of the time. I'm going to need his transport capacity and his Strength 10 AP 1 Magma Cannon is going to be fun.

My favorite, the Stormsword. The other one that I'll be using the most as well. Particularly in urban environments when I need to throw around Ignores Cover Apocalyptic Blasts pie-plates. Yay.

And if you recall, I'm writing a story. These super-heavy tanks belong to the Draconis Regiment! The two Shadowsword variants that will show up the most are as mentioned, the Doomhammer and the Stormsword. The Doomhammer of the 4th Draconis Regiment, The Emperor's Wrath, is usually used as a super transport for Plasma veterans. The Draconis Regiment is known for specializing in plasma weapons, so I'm going to load up 1 Company Command Squad with Kurov's Aquila and 4 plasma guns, 2 Veteran squads with a total of 6 plasma guns (and 2 lascannons from the heavy weapon squads) into the Doomhammer and park it on an objective, melting any enemy that dares draw close in white-hot plasma. And give it a Leman Russ Executioner escort while at it.

The Stormsword, The Emperor's Vengeance, will also feature prominently in the story. In fact, when they first break into the Tau Empire's hangar, it will be The Emperor's Vengeance and the 2 Imperial Knights who create a violent diversion while the plasma gunners, heavy flamers and Veteran squads sneak in to steal the Riptide, Broadside and Hammerhead gunship. And Crisis Battlesuits, if I eventually get my hands on them.

I'm thinking of adding a Forge World Stormblade to my collection, but we'll see if I still have the finds come May or June. Ack. If I do, the Stormblade will be The Emperor's Fury. Sorry, I'm bad at coming up with names. Or the Draconis Regiment is. ;)

Confrontation! The Imperial Knights and Imperial Guard face off against a small Tau Empire force.
