I know what you mean, I've only bought the supp for the items, an item that gives a 2+ armour save alone sold me on it. Sick of my bad arse lords being undone by piss weak weapons because Chaos haven't thought of "artificer armour" yet... I'm going to paint up some of my unpainted guys as Slaanesh though and have them as my "crimson slaughter" but I'm going to come up with my own renegade chapter because the whole CS supplement thing is pointless. Just the items are needed...
Haha a man after my own heart! I too have a habit of going "Don't give a shit what the codex says these rules are, I'm using them as this because it actually makes sense".
Black Dragons, Fire Hawks, Flame Falcons, Lamenters, Sons of Antaeus.
The Black Dragons are constantly under the Inquisitorial eye because of their odd bone growths. Flame falcons were declared Excommunicate Traitoris and almost completely wiped out, but some still pop up from time to time, so these would be a good choice.
- Black Dragons would work well actually, first of all their color scheme is dark, nice opportunity for conversions with it and they have "relations" with the =I= as it were.
- Fire Hawks - Didn't think they were Renegade seeing as they fought on the side of the Imperium during the Badab War
- Flame Falcons - I LOVE to do a marine from them but converting a marine that is on fire is so far out of my skill range it's not funny.
- Lamentors - Already painted a squad of them (never again) and they are loyalist. The whole Badab thing was a giant clusterfuck of honor etc
- Sons of Antaeus - They could also work well, a really good opportunity for a conversion.
I just remembered about the Fallen as well. Could easily see a recanted Fallen working with a Radical =I= in return for his support evading the DA. So options at the moment:
- Fallen Dark Angel
- Black Dragon
- Son of Antaeus
Haha 4 options, pick 3. Would be interesting task doing the Fallen as the project may or may not involve True Scale and a Fallen would be wearing Heresy era armor.... How far away are the Dark Angels away from getting from FW HH love?
