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, Cybernetica cohorts and Skitarii legions, and perhaps the Titan Legion, Legio Gojira.

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!

Draconian Armored Battle Group

While writing Battle Report 11 (or actually, while playing the game for Battle Report 11), I figured I might as well take a picture of my armored Battle Group to show everyone how the Draconian Armored Battle Group functions.

 So yeah, that's usually how it works. Usually the core of the battle group is the Stormsword super-heavy tank, who travels as the center or the pillar of the armored convoy. Understandably enough, he provides the main firepower of the group, the big guy everyone rallies to. Escorting this super-heavy element is an Emperor's Fist Armored Company of about 5 to 6 Leman Russ tanks (more when I add to my collection). We usually have the Leman Russ Vanquisher and Leman Russ Main Battle Tank hanging at the back, firing from safety with their enormous ranges, while the Leman Russ Punishers make up the vanguard, spearheading the assault with their Punisher Gatling cannons. They are flanked by Leman Russ Executioners, because...well, everybody loves plasma. It's a pity the latest FAQ nerfed Preferred Enemy for blast weapons, so the Leman Russ Executioners will probably go extinct now.

That said, my Leman Russ Executioner actually did a whole lot of damage and I was lucky enough not to roll any Gets Hot! rolls (okay, so I had one, but even then I passed the save and didn't glance myself) the last game, so I might just put my trust in the Machine Spirit of that particular Leman Russ Executioner. For more details, read Battle Report 11, which is just below because I had just finished writing it an hour ago or so.

Doesn't this remind you of the armored convoys of Tallarn's war machines during the days of the Horus Heresy when they fought back against the Iron Warriors? Hell, yeah! I'm a fan of heavy armor, and super-heavy stuff just appeals to me. Maybe it's from the days of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance where I would try to spam Experimentals, but don't the Baneblades, Stormswords and their variants remind you of the UEF Fatboy from Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance?

Anyway, I hope to be able to make use of this armored convoy again someday! For the Emperor!
