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...

Selling my stuff

Okay, I've managed to sell my Hellhounds. Now I'm looking for anyone to buy the Leman Russ battle tanks if they want them (since I ended up having my own Leman Russ Executioner tanks and will be getting Leman Russ Annihilators). In any case, let me know if you're interested. I'll load the pictures here if you're interested. Oh, I have the dozer blades too so don't worry about that.

I have 4 Leman Russ main battle tanks. 2 of them are equipped with hull lascannons and 2 heavy bolters sponsons each, 1 of them has 3 heavy flamers, and the last one has a hull lascannon and 2 plasma cannon sponsons. You can buy all or one, two or three, doesn't matter. Just let me know what you want. I'm flexible.









And Bits and Kits UK still hasn't gotten back to me even though I've sent the email 3 days ago. Huh. Looks like the rumors are true after all. Oh well.

Anyway, I've also adjusted my list (that's how I found out I wouldn't be using these tanks) to reflect what I am going to use. Take note, I am not selling these. I'm only selling the tanks above.

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 222
Heavy Weapons Squad with lascannons 78
Total: 805, 1 Command Point
Draconian (Cadian) Supreme Command Detachment
Primaris Psyker 40
Company Commander 30
Company Commander with bolt pistol 31
Command squad with 4 plasma guns 76
Shadowsword with 3 twin heavy bolters and 2 lascannons 472
Total: 649, 1 Command Point
Kamikaze Troopers (Militarum Tempestus/Stormtrooper) Vanguard Detachment
Tempestor Prime with Tempestus command rod 40
Tempestor Prime with Tempestus command rod 40
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88
Militarum Tempestus command squad with 4 plasma guns 88
Taurox Prime with Taurox gatling cannon, 2 hot-shot volley guns and storm bolter 97
Officer of the Fleet 25
Valkyrie with lascannon, 2 multiple rocket pods and 2 heavy bolters 168
Total: 546, 1 Command Points
Grand Total: 2,000, 6 Command Points

This is the most standard list I will be using. I probably don't need to elaborate why. Plasma, plasma and more plasma. Too much plasma, to be honest, but it fits my Draconian Imperial Guard regiment fluff just fine. I mean, the regiment is founded on Draconis III, a world next to a forge world, Draconis IV, who is famous for manufacturing plasma weapons. That's why the infantry have an unusually high number of plasma guns and more than half the tanks in the armored regiments are Leman Russ Executioner tanks. Hell, even the Leman Russ Annihilators are equipped with plasma cannons!

Draconis IV and the Draconian Armored Dragoons are energy-based, so they make use of a lot of plasma and laser weapons such as lascannons.

But if I want to go the more infantry route, I can swap the Stormtroopers out for a Catachan-style regiment. Okay, they don't have the bulging biceps and monstrous muscles of the real Catachans, but since the regiment's world is right next to a forge world, they have augmetics and stuff that grants them Brutal Strength. That's why these seemingly skinny Guardsmen have Strength 4. Mechanicus augmetics and cybernetic implants/reinforcements. To represent that, I will change my list to this.

Augmented Draconian (Catachan) Vanguard Detachment
Company Commander with bolt pistol and power sword 35
Company Commander with power sword 34
Company command squad with heavy flamer and 3 flamers 62
Company command squad with heavy flamer and 3 flamers 62

Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and plasma cannons 222
Leman Russ Annihilator with lascannon and plasma cannons 222
Total: 873, 1 Command Point
Grand Total: 2,000, 6 Command Points

If I want more Command Points, I can try adjusting my list for an Augmented Draconian (Catachan) Battalion Detachment, and flood the table with Strength 4 infantry.

So that's basically what I have. Well, I guess that's all the ideas and variants I can come up with for now.

      From there I can send you my real email address or I can just send it to yours or whatever.
