Adeptus Mechanicus and Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"
Incidentally, my blog also serves as a sort of "Wiki" for the Mechanicum during the time of the Horus Heresy (30K), the Adeptus Mechanicus and to a smaller extent, the Imperial Knights and the Imperial Guard...I mean Astra Militarum. I will endeavor to expand and construct new posts and articles on them. Feel free to comment, criticize and advise changes in the comments.
These posts will be about fluff, unit analysis and "tactics" similar to that of 1d4chan, but obviously I suck at it, being an amateur, so go read 1d4chan instead. But in the fluff sections for the 40K articles, I will include my own personal fluff regarding the Draconis system such as the Knight House Yato in Draconis III, the Astra Militarum regiment trained there, the Draconian Armored Defense Force, and the Forge World of Draconis IV with its Mechanicus priesthood and Skitarii legions, and perhaps the Titan Legion, Legio Gojira.

Horus Heresy Inferno Pre-orders
Guess what, Thousand Sons fans? Horus Heresy Book VII: Inferno will be out soon, and already pre-orders will be available this weekend! That is, 18th February 2017 (in case you're reading this article late).
One of the most anticipated Forgeworld books, or Horus Heresy books, Inferno tells the tale of how Propsero was razed by the ruthless Space Wolves. Executioners and Sorcerers. Apparently Magnus had upset the Emperor with his reckless spell and accidentally wrecked the Golden Throne and stuff, and the Emperor ordered that he be brought back in chains. Horus, being the evil traitor that he is, tricks Leman Russ into attacking Magnus the Red and destroying the Thousand Sons and their world, Prospero. Hence the greatest tragedy of the Horus Heresy begins...
Inferno also includes rules for the Thousand Sons and Space Wolves, the Rites of War for both Legions - if you're familiar with Warhammer 30K or Horus Heresy tabletop game, then you probably know that each Legion has their own unique Rite of War, which is like unique Detachment bonuses that gives them advantages and rules/abilities that tailor to their fluff. Knowing the Thousand Sons, their Rites of War will most probably be psyker based. Look forward to it!
In addition to the rules for the Thousand Sons and Space Wolves, it seems there will also be stuff for the Legio Custodes, Sisters of Silence and even a few new units for the Mechanicum! I'm not sure if I heard correctly, but apparently the Solar Auxillia might also get several new units as well, but that's unconfirmed, so take that with a pinch of salt.
For more information, visit the Warhammer Community page! For the Thousand Sons! For the Emperor! Yeah, at this time the Thousand Sons remain loyal to the Emperor...until the Space Wolves' treachery forced our hand...
