40K Lore: Meet the New Astra Militarum Regiments
Codex Astra Militarum has a lot of new regiments in it for the numberless ranks of the Astra Militarum. Here’s the best ones.
Sure we have rules for the 8 famous Regiments that have been around for decades – but I like the challenge and modeling opportunities of these new ones.
Faeburn Vanquishers – look like standard Cadians models with an alternative paint-scheme – and mix in some female heads just for good show. I would also mix in some ministorum bits here and there to reflect their devout nature. Suggested Doctrine – Cadia
Truskan Snowhounds – alternative paintscheme Cadians with cowled headswaps (Grey Knights or old Bretonnians). Easily done. Suggested Doctrine – Valhallan
Ventrillian Nobles – I’d go with Cadians with Empire Pistolliers headswaps, and Empire swords. Suggested Doctrine – Vostroyans
Indigan Preafects – Genestealer Cult bodies with Skitarii heads and backpacks. Suggested Doctrine – Mordians (disciplined fire)
Athonian Tunnel Rats – A tough one. these look like a combo of Chaos cultists, CSM helmets and IG weapons. Suggested Doctrine – Steel Legion (Hivers who use vehicles)
Miasman Redcowls – Skitari, and Cadian mashups with Empire bits. Suggested Doctrine – Catachans (flamer specialists)
Armageddon Ork Hunters – Catachans – easy enough.
Mordant Acid-Dogs – Cathchans with Cadian headswaps. Suggested Doctrine – Whatever you want – kind of vague description.
