Adeptus Mechanicus and 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 Force, and the Forge World of Draconis IV with its Adeptus Mechanicus priesthood and Skitarii legions, and perhaps the Titan Legion, Legio Gojira (which will never happen because I don't have money for Forge World Titans).

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!

Skitarii and Cult Mechanicus

I went and spray-painted my unpainted models Chaos Black today, so every single one of my models is now black. Black is cool, after all. And the color of the Draconis Regiment, whether it's House Yato, the revered house of Imperial Knights, the Draconis Imperial Guard Armored Regiment or... wait. That's all I have right now. Aside from random Tau units which I have to find a way to get rid of (anyone interested in buying a Crisis Commander, a Hammerhead gunship, a Riptide and a missile Broadside  for $10 each?), my army is composed entirely of Imperial Knights and Imperial Guard.

I have 4 Imperial Knights right now for my Baronial Court, so no problems there. I've decided to scrap the idea of getting an Exalted Court. Getting 5 Imperial Knights is a bad idea, and leaves little room for variety. Plus it's not good for gameplay. With only 5 models on the table, they'll get wiped out too easily in 2,000-point games. Maybe it's time I sit back and reconsider this. Well, Baronial Court is good enough for 2,000-point games and I get sneak in a Vendetta and my Veteran troops in. In fact, I had a much better idea.

In addition to Imperial Guard allies, I've decided to throw in Skitarii allies as well. And Cult Mechanicus. I've been a fan of Skitarii and Adeptus Mechanicus - I believe I've mentioned this on this blog before, so I'm pretty happy that the codex for each had been released over the last two months, along with awesome models. Helps to satiate my love for Skitarii. Yay.

So I'll probably buy a couple of Skitarii Vanguard squads, keep them to the bare minimum without additional soldiers, and no upgrades except for the Omnispexes, and supplement the rest with my favorite Onager Dunecrawlers. Sorry, I just love those things. They remind me of Bricks and Cybran units from Supreme Commander. My favorite faction is the United Earth Federation, though, but I already have UEF-equivalent units by including my Imperial Guard, particularly with Leman Russ tanks (equal to Pillar Tanks), Vendetta gunships (equal to Broadsword heavy gunships) and even a single Doomhammer, a super-heavy tank reminiscent of the Fatboy. :D Yay.

So yeah, a squadron of Onager Dunecrawlers would be nice. I'll try to magnetize them so that I can switch between the Icarus Array Dunecrawlers and vanilla Eradication Beam Dunecrawlers when necessary. My Imperial Knights need anti-air, after all!

Last of all, I'll complete my Adeptus Mechanicus-themed army by getting a Tech-Priest Dominus and a whole bunch of Kastelan Robot Maniples by way of the Cohort Cybernetica formation. This will be so cool. I can't wait!

I think that's all I have at the moment. I will update again when I get those models and build them. Will be getting them over the next two months, I hope.

For the Emperor! Or should I say, Omnissiah? Ha ha. Don't forget, Draconis III is a Forge World, after all!
