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.

2nd Chimera

I finally got my hands on a 2nd Chimera, and my mechanized infantry is finally complete! I also went ahead and sprayed my unpainted vehicles black.

Huh, black may be the new cool but somehow they don't look very different. Maybe it's the lighting. Anyway, with these guys done, I can get down to painting my Adeptus Mechanicus army, I guess. A paintjob's long overdue, and I should throw some gold or whatever on them or something. I hope. I'm going to cry because the latest White Dwarf meant for the future has announced the release of not one but TWO bundle releases for the Adeptus Mechanicus! NOOO!

So we have the Elimination Maniple, which combines a single Kastelan Robot Maniple, including Cybernetica Datasmith, with two squads of Kataphron Destroyers! That means two Kastelan robots, 1 Cybernetica Datasmith, 6 Kataphron Destroyers in one box!

And then we have the Skitarii Battle Maniple, which bundles all the Skitarii units together! NOOO! I already bought a Skitarii Battle Maniple! Releasing the box only in the next few weeks is way too late! My Skitarii Battle Maniple is already done! Damn you! Why are you doing this to me, Games Workshop?!

Ahem...never mind, back to my Imperial Guard army. So right now I basically can field a 2,000 armored Imperial Guard regiment (my Draconian Armored Defense Force!) with the models I have.

Company Command Squad with 4 plasma guns

Veteran squad with heavy flamers and 2 flamers
Chimera APC with heavy flamer and multi-laser

Veteran squad with 3 plasma guns
Chimera APC with heavy bolter and multi-later

Tank Commander in Leman Russ Punisher with heavy bolters
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons
Leman Russ Executioner with heavy bolter and plasma cannons

Vendetta gunship
2nd Vendetta gunship

Stormsword with twin-linked heavy bolters and lascannons

So there you have it, a full-fledged Imperial Guard army at about 2,000 points! A pity I can't get my Wyvern suppression tanks despite ordering them months ago...but I'll make do with what I have. Besides, I think I'll save the money for the Wyverns to buy either Mechanicum models from Forge World or the new Horus Heresy set. Speaking of which, I have some news which I'll release in the next post...muahahaha! Wait for it!


  1. Sounds like a solid list, although I think you might miss melta if you run in to any Knights. I look forward to seeing these painted!

    1. Yeah, I kind of regretted buying a bunch of plasma gun sprues instead of meltagun sprues. Oh well, what's bought and assembled have been bought and assembled, though technically I can buy 3 sets of Cadians with meltaguns/plasma guns from the Games Workshop website and swap them out.

      Still waiting on your analysis on the Adeptus Mechanicus! :)
