Default Re: What's Next?

People around here don't hate newbies, just Wargamer mainly. Don't ask me why but I have rants from him about the flood of newbies into the guard after the new codex. Maybe being an old Space Marine hand I'm just gotten use to them and don't mind helping them out. However when it comes to what works there is no one you can ask that knows better than Wargamer. You did ask where to go form there and you didn't say this was going fluff first.

Now, since your going fluff first and we have now seen what you have it gives us a few options. Going for a high-tech knights theme is diffrent and I like the story you've made for them. I'd say the gernadiers doctrine works for your 'knights' on foot but you might want to consider perhaps afterwards getting roughriders also. Not only a decent hand to hand unit(so I have found in the fighting) but also fits with your fluff. You might want to model your own though as there are only two roughrider types of models and niether fit your theme. Keeping with the hightech you could even see about getting some motorbikes instead of horses if you wanted. Again, have seen this done with bitz orders of the archive SM bikes for a Ghosts army.

You probably want the carapice doctrine also so you can give your HQ heavier armour since these would be your 'lords'. The basic rabble you either might want to make from conscripts to show a large, citizen 'levy' or you might put them in as heavy weapons squads showing a trained men at arms who would prefer to stand back and shoot and to beef up your some what lacking firepower at this point.

Hope that helps a little.
