Adeptus Mechanicus and Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"
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!
I'm not Natfka and I shouldn't try to copy or learn from him because...frankly speaking, I'm inferior and I'm not even worth...

Closer Look: Inferno
Guess what, folks? Warhammer Community has a post regarding a closer look at the Thousand Sons in Inferno! You can check out their post here.
Dramatics aside ("the Thousand Sons play unlike any other force" seriously? Like...duh?), it seems that the Rites of War for the Thousand Sons are quite fun. You can build an entire army of psykers! Hooray! They have invulnerable saves and all sorts of psyker cults...I'm not very sure, but it seems to draw from the usual disciplines of telekinesis, pyromancy...ah, screw it. Fancy names aside, that's the normal five disciplines. In case you guys don't know what the hell Pavoni, Corvidae, Pyrae, Raptora or Athanaeans mean, they are basically fancy ways of saying Biomancy, Divination, Pyromancy, Telekinesis and Telepathy. Yup, I just solved that mystery for you. You can go ahead and join my Emperor's cult now.
One of the most awesome things is that Contemptor Dreadnoughts can wield psychic powers. You heard that right. The Blood Angels and their Librarian Dreadnoughts are no longer exclusive to Blood Angels! The Thousand Sons have Librarian CONTEMPTOR Dreadnoughts long before those heretics stole our thunder! WOOHOO!
In addition to that awesome psychic Contemptor Dreadnought, we have the Sekhmet or Scarab Occult Terminators, which you guys are probably already familiar with from Wrath of Magnus. You know, the Terminators with a Mastery Level 2 Psyker or Sorcerer as the Sergeant? Yup, they're back. Joining them are entirely new units never seen before, such as the deadly force-sword wielding blademasters of the Khenetai Occult Blade Cabals (what's with the long ass name?) and the so-called expert psi-infiltrators of the Ammitara Occult who you can bet your entire GW armies that they have the Infilitrate Special Rule.
Furthermore, you have the Special Characters, and I'm sure we all remember Ahzek Ahriman, the guy who has an entire series of novels written after him. Speaking of which, I hope I get to read the Ahriman Collection soon. Accompanying him is Magistus Amon, and we have a pre-Daemon Primarch Magnus the Red taking the field!
Tune in for more news regarding the Thousand Sons during the Horus Heresy!
