View Full Version : do YOU have a plan?
5th Jul 04, 6:56 PM
this question is mainly aimed at tt players and followers of the fluff,
so do you: A) have an already planned colour scheme? (ex. pink orks) or army name, and are you basing it on tt or any sort of fluff? B) have you created any sort of story or background to said army? and c) do you have any particular scene envisioned in your mind (ex. a green tide of vicious orks backed by dozens of sqiggoths and war machines, sweeping across a valley to demolish a space marine base)
just looking for true devotees to the fluff cause, so turn on your ranter and share. :rant:

Probably will go with a death guard color scheme. As for a scene I want to see. Well I intend on opening up the editor and putting down a single dreadnought versus hundreds of grots. It shall be joy.

A) i'm fielding Tau, with Dark Green base, black armour, as well as red and blue detail, but this is not final, i might change. I'm also gonna go and create a new helper race based on the Kadesh (from Homeworld) in color scheme, parts of the background and possibly name. will probably use modified marine rules for those. the models themselves will be conversions made out of fire warrior bits with either warp spider or marine bodies(possibly raptors!).
B) the initial part of the army will be a regular tau detachment, likely no kroot. emphasis on stealth suits, and mobility, i might equip all squads of firewarriors with transports for fire support and added movement. haven't gotten my Tau Codex yet (ETA: 2-3 days)
the helpers are a race that used to survive on piracy and trade. their home is a fleet including five "caves of life", big ships that harbour their whole population and culture. their homeworld was taken from them in times so ancient that they have no recollection of what exactly happened, except that "once, there was a home". They have made a treaty with the tau earning them possession of a planet as well as technology if they fight alongside them. they are hardier fighters than their Tau allies. undecided what weaponry they'll use.
C) basically i envision a more rounded shooty army, changing savage infiltrating CC units for hardier, but less "special" troops that are not as hopelessly lost in CC than your general fire warrior is.

I want to do one of the black library chapters such as the soul drinkers, possibly as a csm army. in DoW i wouldnt get 8 legged sarpedon etc though and for tt it would be a ton of tricky conversions. legion of the dammned might be fun as well.

I have a custom job designed around a split color scheme but my fluff is based off of that of the Flesh Tearers as they are my progenitor chapter. My Inquisitors fit in with my storyline as my chapter is under investigation for heresy and corruption. I also have brief stoylines for my other armies indicating origins, etc.
I'm currently looking at changing one of my companies to the Avenging Sons, but that would include a number of tanks, dreads and speeders that I'm not sure I want to get fully into yet.

a) i do have a colour scheme
b) my iron warriors are a detachment from the 5th company code named :green fire: because their right shoulder pad is green with the usual IW gold rim
c) an entrenched IG army are now takeing heavy casualtys from the 3 month long bombardment happening the shells over head are screaming as they are coming down, blocking out the sound of dieing gaurdsmen. the radios have been jammed perventing any renfrocments being brought down.
then one particularly wet morning the trench wall explode sending mud and dead bodys every where and the already weak are survivers hacked down by the huge metal giants in power armor...
i only just thought that story up...

your creating an entirely new caste?
why not its customising your army whats wrong with it
10th Jul 04, 2:12 AM
its one thing to customize an army, its another thing to change existing fluff. there are only 4 castes + ethereals.
I mean, all of this could be avoided if you called it something else, like storm cadre.
