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!

Brewing a Storm Trooper

And I went and finished the rest of my Storm Troopers. So now I have all 25 Storm Troopers, known as Kamikaze Troopers in their fluff, assembled and ready for action. All that's left is painting, and of course the 2 Taurox Prime APCs and the 3rd Vendetta for my Emperor's Spear Aerial Company.

I want to try writing a Space Hulk story for these guys, it'll be fun. We'll see, I have a job, I have to build these guys, and I have other responsibilities.

Anyway, here's what I have so far.

Yeah, that's the full platoon. Or actually detachment. For the Cadian Battle Group, also known as Draconian Battle Group, we have 2 Command squads serving as HQ, and 2 Troops, 1 5-men squad and 1 10-men squad. Yay. That's a lot of firepower. I hope.

I have a plasma command squad, which will make full use of the "Autonomous Fire Sanctioned!" order. I also have a hot-shot volley command squad, who will maximize the Rending granted by the "Elimination Protocol Sanctioned!" order. Of course, this is only for when I use them as a pure Militarum Tempestus army. If I were to use them as part of the Draconian Battle Group, I'll only use 1 melta command squad, and shuffle the hot-shot volley gunners into the 5-men squad and 10-men squad. It's to maximize their dakka with the First Rank, Fire! Second Rank, Fire! order.

I will make one Taurox Prime with the twin-linked Taurox gatling cannon and twin-linked hot-shot volley gun, and one Taurox Prime with the Taurox missile launcher and twin-linked autocannons. That should round out my Militarum Tempestus platoon/Militarum Tempestus army. It seems playing them on their own is quite fun, so I might run them with Skitarii allies or as allies for Cohort Cybernetica (pseudo Skitarii!). If I ever get down to it, they'll all have fun in a Space Hulk together!
