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!

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War Astra Militarum Walkthrough

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...

Chapter Approved leaks!

All right fellow Guardsmen, it looks like we've been hit by the nerfbat in Chapter Approved! Can't let the Imperial Guard...cough, I mean Astra Militarum steal the thunder from the Adeptus Astartes now, can we?

So what happened? Apparently our Primaris Pyskers, Conscripts, Stormtroopers' weapons (meltaguns and hot-shot volley guns specifically), Taurox Prime, Astropaths and Wyverns got more expensive. And bloody ell, Tempestus command rods cost 5 points now (well, I'm guilty of abusing them when they're free, so...)!



On the other hand, autocannons and force staves got cheaper. To break it down, Astropaths doubled in points, Primaris Psykers went up by 6 points overall (base cost went up by 10 but force stave dropped by 4), Conscripts went up by 1 point per model which puts them on par with infantry squads' Guardsmen, Manticore went up by 10 points, Ratlings by 2, Taurox by 10, Taurox Prime by a whooping 15 while their Taurox gatling cannons went up by 2 points (so basically my Taurox Prime with storm bolter now costs 116 points instead of 97, up by 19 points), and Wyverns increased by 10 points. Oh boy.

On the other hand, power fists got dropped from 10 to 8, force staves from 12 to 8 points, and autocannons from 15 to 12, and now Vanquisher battle cannons are cheaper, dropping to 20 points. Well deserved reduction! As for forged world, the Vendetta gunships remain the same in cost, but it seems my Leman Russ Annihilator dropped by 10 points!



Phew.

In the light of these changes, I have to adjust my lists. The Taurox Prime has simply become too expensive for me to take. Ouch. A pity, but given how one of these bad boys murdered an entire squad of Intercessor Marines by himself, I understand why his points had to go up.

Draconian (Cadian) Spearhead Detachment
Tank Commander – Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 237
Command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Leman Russ Executioner with lascannon and plasma cannons 192
Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and plasma cannons 212
Heavy Weapons Squad with lascannons 78
Heavy Weapons Squad with mortars 33
Total: 828, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Supreme Command Detachment
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Primaris Psyker 46
Primaris Psyker 46
Command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Shadowsword with 3 twin heavy bolters and 2 lascannons 472
Total: 702, 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
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88
Tech-priest Enginseer 42
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 468, 1 Command Points
Grand Total: 1,998, 6 Command Points

So this is my new list to go along with the Chapter Approved points adjustment. It hurts, it really does, but then again I've been crushing most people with this list, so...

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 212
Heavy Weapons Squad with lascannons 78
Heavy Weapons Squad with mortars 33
Total: 752, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Supreme Command Detachment
Company Commander 30
Primaris Psyker 46
Primaris Psyker 46
Shadowsword with 3 twin heavy bolters and 2 lascannons 472
Total: 594, 1 Command Point
Kamikaze Troopers (Militarum Tempestus/Stormtrooper) Battalion Detachment
Tempestor Prime with Tempestus command rod 45
Tempestor Prime with bolt pistol 41
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88
10 Militarum Tempestus Scions 100
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 62
5 Militarum Tempestus Scions with 2 hot-shot volley guns 62
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 654, 3 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 8 Command Points

This is the alternative list if I want more Command Points. I somehow managed to fit all of them inside this list at 2,000 points, at the expense of 1 Tempestus command rod. Oh well. But if I really want as many Command Points as possible, I'll try to form a Brigade like this:

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 212
2 Wyverns 103x2 = 206
Total: 847, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Brigade Detachment
Company Commander with plasma pistol 35
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Company Commander 30
Command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Command squad with heavy flamer and 3 flamers 62
3 infantry squads with plasma gun and bolt pistol 48x3 = 144
3 infantry squads with plasma gun/flamer 47x3 = 141
3 Armored Sentinels with plasma cannon and Sentinel chainsaw 57x3 = 171
Heavy Weapons Squad with lascannons 78
Heavy Weapons Squad with mortars 33
Basilisk 108
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 1,153, 9 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 13 Command Points

However, I don't have the Wyverns or Basilisks, so...we shall see. Besides, I'm satisfied with what I have now, and I'm just waiting for my Adeptus Mechanicus Cybernetica robots to arrive!
