I would like to see what you would like them to make for a new army if they did make a new one.

I think a race that has a lot of special weapondry and chariot like tanks. I'm thinking a crystal being race that destroys planets after captureing all life to use to power a giant crystal that keeps thier race alive or something like that.

Either Jawas or Tribles. 40K needs a more humorous race, as the Orks are getting more and more severe as time passes.



How about a technologically backward race, similar to what you'd find in an Ork army, but not because they are so haphazard, but rather because they don't believe that Technology is the answer to any worthwhile question. The army would be blessed with two very obvious qualities...
1. The army would have a very heavy combat theme. None of the models would be anything like a Marine, but rather, think along the lines of hulking intelligent brutes. They would only have Str4, and an armor of 4+, but every model in the core units would be To5. None of these combat brutes would have ranged weapons, though they would have something similar to Fleet.
2. Technology is something this race would revere as the lesson of lost causes. The race would be very religious, and in some cases quite hokey. Shamans (Psykers) would feature as indy characters and squad upgrades. The only 'shooting' in the army would be done through Psychic powers, though the usual system of casting/hooding would have to be altered to make this at all worthwhile. Great beasts would represent the army's 'vehicle' equivalent, and I do imagine that chariots could make an appearance for Fast units.

I'm done being serious now...

Tribles for the WIN!!!

They won't. But I might suggest Chocolate Ghosts at the next meeting.

It might sound painfully obvious, but I'm surprised they've never bothered with the Hrud...
