Default Sephearu Craftworld

I decided I would make my own Craftworld. The following changes have been made...

Striking Scorpions, Howling Banshees, Fire dragons and Dark Reapers are now all troops choices.
Guardian Jetbikes, Guardian Storm and Defender squads, Rangers, and Shining Spears are now Elites.
Warp Spiders are now Fast Attack.

OK. The Craftworld fluff...

To all of these I ask a simple question: why? This list is essentially a raped version of Biel-Tan. You have no fluff to support the changes, and nor can I see how you could have any; if they really were "Aspect Heavy" as you seem to want them, they'd use the Biel-Tan list.

With this in mind, you need to fix the list before producing armies with it.

I think that you're a little harsh Wargamer but I do agree that this list is basically a modified Biel-Tan craftworld - without the advantages of a court of the Young King.

Eye of Time it is entirely possible to create your own Craftworld while using the existing rules. All you need to do is come up with your own fluff and colour scheme, and possibly name a few of your Warlocks, Exarchs and Farseers, and viola! 8)
No need to go writing a whole new set of rules which would require months of play testing to get right.
