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...

I just realized something

I just realized something very important.

Under Matched Play Rule: Command Squads, it says "if you're playing a matched play game, then in a Battle-forged army, you can include a maximum of one <REGIMENT> Command Squad in a Detachment for each <REGIMENT> OFFICER iin that Detachment.

That means you can include a Command Squad for a Tank Commander because he has the Officer keyword! You aren't necessarily restricted to Company Commanders or Platoon Commanders! You can spam plasma Command Squads if you take a Tank Commander, even if you don't have enough Company Commanders or Platoon Commanders!

Tech-priest Enginseer 42
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 573, 1 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 6 Command Points

Does this change anything? Nope...it does not. Oh well. But it's better than nothing! In the end I'm still taking 1 command squad per commander (company or platoon). No space for a 3rd command squad, but it will be fun to get it sooner rather than later. I hope.

Now this abuses the Officer rule by including a third Command Squad for the Tank Commander. Will it work? I have no idea! Maybe the Taurox Prime would be more useful than a 3rd plasma Command Squad, but we'll never know!

But if I need some anti-horde firepower, I should change to this. I also feel that the above list has way too much plasma and I overdid the plasma command squad spam. So I'll throw in more anti-horde firepower instead of relying solely on plasma.

Does this look better now? It should have everything from anti-horde to anti-vehicles. And plasma is pretty flexible, or so I hope. Anyway, we shall see!

Of course, I can swap the Officer of the Fleet for a Tech-priest Enginseer.

At least I will have someone repairing my Shadowsword now.
