Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"

For the Emperor!

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!

Okay, everybody. I know there's quite a few videos and playthroughs, but a lot of them take hours just to go through the game. Here is a...

A few tweaks to my list

All right, I'm preparing for a match tomorrow, and I think I'll tweak my list further. I realize I need a bit more infantry to bubble-wrap my tanks, so I removed one tank for more infantry. I don't know if this works, though.

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ main battle tank with lascannon, plasma cannons 239
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192

Shadowsword with 3 twin heavy bolters and 2 lascannons 472
Total: 778, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Vanguard Detachment
Company Commander with plasma pistol 35
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Company command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Company command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Special Weapons Team with 3 plasma guns 45

Special Weapons Team with 3 flamers 45
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 521, 1 Command Point
Grand Total: 2,000, 6 Command Points

So now I have infantry to bubble-wrap and protect my Shadowsword and 3 tanks. Let's hope they will be enough. When I save up, I will get more Militarum Tempestus Scions/Stormtroopers and form a Stormtrooper Battalion. So they will look like this instead:

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ main battle tank with lascannon, plasma cannons 239
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192

5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 plasma guns 74
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 715, 3 Command Points
Grand Total: 1,999, 8 Command Points

If I really want to use my second Taurox Prime instead of a Valkyrie, I could use this list instead. But I have no idea why I would want to do that.

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ main battle tank with lascannon, plasma cannons 239
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192

Primaris Psyker 40

Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Command squad with lascannon and 2 plasma guns 70
Shadowsword with 3 twin heavy bolters and 2 lascannons 472
Total: 653, 1 Command Point
Kamikaze Troopers (Militarum Tempestus/Stormtrooper) Battalion Detachment
Tempestor Prime with Tempestus command rod 40
Tempestor Prime with Tempestus command rod 40
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88

Taurox Prime with Taurox gatling cannon, 2 hot-shot volley guns and storm bolter 97
Taurox Prime with Taurox gatling cannon, 2 hot-shot volley guns and heavy stubber 99
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 plasma guns 74
Total: 646, 3 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 8 Command Points

I'm not sure if a Valkyrie is better or a 2nd Taurox Prime and a command squad with lascannon and 2 plasma guns are better. That's D6+6 Strength 5 AP-1 shots a 36" range and 1 Strength 9 AP -3 shot against 23 Strength 4 AP 0 shots and 8 Strength 4 AP 0 shots at 24" range, and 1 Strength 9 AP -3 shot with re-rolls to hit. By the way, I can pair this Kamikaze Troopers list with my Imperial Knights!

House Yato (Imperial Knights) Super-heavy Detachment
Knight Paladin 458
Knight Errant 430
Knight Warden 466
Total: 1,354, 3 Command Points
Kamikaze Troopers (Militarum Tempestus/Stormtrooper) Battalion Detachment

5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60

5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 plasma guns 74
Total: 646, 3 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 9 Command Points

That actually looks quite good. Well, we'll experiment and see what else I can do. Now the question is, what do I do with my Leman Russ Annihilator when I get it?

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 237
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and plasma cannons 222
Heavy weapons squad with lascannons 78

Draconian (Cadian) Supreme Command Detachment
Primaris Psyker 40

Total: 663, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Battalion Detachment
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Company command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Veterans with shotguns, heavy flamer and 3 plasma guns 116
Special weapons squad with 3 flamers 45
Infantry squad with plasma gun 47
Infantry squad with plasma gun 47
Infantry squad with flamer 47
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 608, 3 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 8 Command Points

I guess something like this? That's a lot of infantry! I hope this works. If in doubt, spam infantry. That's also a lot of plasma, flamers and lascannons, which plays right into my Draconian fluff. But if I really want to use my Kamikaze Troopers I can either use this list:

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 237
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and multi-meltas 232

5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 60
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 plasma guns 74
Total: 646, 3 Command Points
Grand Total: 1,998, 8 Command Points

On the other hand, if I don't want to buy a new Start Collecting! Militarum Tempestus box, and just stick to the Kamikaze Troopers I have right now, I can essentially build something like this:

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 237
Platoon commander 20
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and plasma cannons 222

Total: 749, 1 Command Point

Total: 663, 1 Command Point
Kamikaze Troopers (Militarum Tempestus/Stormtrooper) Vanguard Detachment
Tempestor Prime with bolt pistol 41
Tempestor Prime with bolt pistol 41
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88

Taurox Prime with Taurox gatling cannon, 2 hot-shot volley guns and storm bolter 97
2 Crusaders 30
Ministorum Priest 35
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 588, 1 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 6 Command Points

This is quite the crazy list, but hey, whatever. We'll see if it works! Or I can troll them with this list:

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 237
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and plasma cannons 222
Heavy weapons squad with lascannons 78
Total: 729, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Supreme Command Detachment
Primaris Psyker 40

Tempestor Prime with bolt pistol 41
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88
Shadowsword with 3 twin heavy bolters and 2 lascannons 472
Total: 681, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Battalion Detachment
Company Commander with plasma pistol 35
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31

This is probably more for fun than anything else. Combines mass infantry with distraction Crusaders and plasma quads, both Deep Striking and grav-chuting ones. And I still have 3 infantry squads to bubble-wrap my tanks. Hmm...
