My idea behind this army is that it's a quick and mobile army that is able to rapidly deploy onto even the harshest and most inhospitable of landscapes. An army that claims no homeworld, living almost entirely on ships transiting from battle to battle wherever reinforcements are required. Never staying in a system long and always on the move to strike at the enemy as it invades their territories.

It's why I use all helmets on the Firewarriors and ice/snow on the bases. Showing that the weather or atmosphere is not adequate to support life.

But still they fight on. Such is their duty to the Empire.

» Modelling and Conversion Information
I don't really keep a good record of win/loss, though I do know that I've been able to hold my ground fairly well against standard marines, a Space Wolf army, and usually table an IG player. GK and Orks are something that just mow me over everytime.

I do keep a record of individual unit's effectiveness though and plan on updating this as I continue playing.

Gun Drones.)
Pins: (1) TH/SS Termie unit about to contest the last objective in a game
Vehicles: (4) Rhinos/razorbacks wrecked in 2 games.

Broadsides.)
(1) old school Monolith
(1) Battle Wagon
(2) Vendettas
(2) Storm Ravens
3 rounds of combat vs. Lash Prince
Hammerhead.)
(5) direct hits for scatter in a row

Shas'el.)
(1) Necron Destroyer lord killed in CC going 1 on 1.
» Coming Soon
I plan on:
-Getting another (2) Tetras and that should be the final purchase I plan on making for my army.

-Building a set of (4) Drone turrets from scratch.

-Making terrain pieces that fit into the whole "mobile" feel. Currently I am converting some of the Forgeworld resin blocks into Jersey barriers. I have also found a kit for making old style tank traps and have made a few of those.

-Landing pads. I have two ceramic "campanion cube" tops that I have acquired and I intend to convert these into a landing pads as soon as I figure out a good base for them to be put into.
» Color Scheme
Main color: Mythril Silver & Chaos Black
Secondary color: Codex Grey & Enchanted Blue

I try to go with a look that makes it look like everything is straight off the assembly line. Very little in the way of unit color (blue) with metallics and "primed" sections covering the majority of the model.
