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!

The Horus Heresy: Battle of Tallarn

If you guys remember, I wrote a review for Tallarn: Ironclad some time ago, a Horus Heresy novella. I don't think anyone read it, but whatever. In any case, I stumbled across this!

Apparently HexWar Games has been working on the Horus Heresy game, Battle of Tallarn! You can check out the game and pre-order it here if it's your thing. Bear in mind, it's a turn-based strategy game, so more like the Alaric Prime or Sanctus Reach game that I am not going to write about because it only features the Space Wolves and no Imperial Guard. So you and the AI have your turns, you choose an action, then your tanks will shoot at the Traitors.

And unlike Sanctus Reach, Battle of Tallan finally allows you to command the forces of the Imperial Guard! Basically you get to control armored hosts of Leman Russ tanks, Baneblades and Imperial Knights! The Traitors have their own Knights, so be careful. Since you'll be playing as the Tallarn Desert Raiders, one of the more famous Imperial Guard regiments next to the Cadians, Valhallan Ice Warriors, Armageddon Steel Legion, Catachan Jungle Fighters, Death Korps of Krieg (okay, I'm getting carried away here), etc. you'll have access to Leman Russ tanks, Baneblades and Imperial Knights. I think Titans will be an eventuality as well. You'll be up against the Iron Warriors who descend onto the virus-bombed, lethal surface of Tallarn with their Predator tanks, Land Raiders, Contemptor Dreadnoughts, and Renegade Knights of their own. From what I see, they are using the Cerastus and Questoris Knights. The trailer (click on the link above) shows a Knight Acheron unleashing its hellstorm flamer! Awesome!

Okay, okay. I know you have the option to play as Iron Warriors too. Fine. I give up. But as an Imperial Commissar, I'll order you to play as an Imperial Guard tank commander, or I'll put a bolt round through your head. Such heresy will not be allowed. For the Emperor!

Yes, I'm joking. Play whatever you want. It's not like I can warp across the world and shoot you anyway, plus Iron Warrior Contemptor Dreadnoughts are cool. So yeah. Have fun. As for me, I'll be rallying my Tallarn armored regiments and crushing the Traitors with the cold steel treads of my countless Leman Russ tanks and Baneblades! FOR THE EMPEROR!

Mind you, if turn based strategy games aren't your thing, then keep that in mind.
