Default Night Hawks (custom regiment)

Hey,

Not sure what forum to put this in but I'll just put it in IG since its mainly an IG army
(but has elements of tau)

The Night Hawks are my Imperial Guard regiment, he is some info about them C+C
welcome (don't go too hard on me , I have no codex's or the rulebook for fluff)

Name: Night Hawk Regiment

Race: Imperial Guard

Allies: Tau

Neutral: Space Marines and Other IG armies.

the Tau Allies are a bit like Tau having human auxiliaries except the other way around.

Creation of the alliance with the Tau : The Night Hawk IG Regiment was in a great battle against the nids however there methods of defense against the incoming horde were useless.
The Alien Bugs overrun Imperial outposts killing all in their path, while the guard were forced back further and further until they reached a small tau encampment.

Inside the camp they heard gunfire, and screaming. The Night Hawks rushed in and
fought off some tyranids that were tearing apart some Tau fire warriors. Twelve fire warriors survived, they thanked the Night Hawks greatly and offered to serve them. The Night Hawk Commander Kirone did not reply instead he explained to the Fire Warriors that the incoming Tyranid Horde would tear them to shreads unless they fought together.

Later that night they managed to use one of the Imperial Radios to contact a nearby Tau military base. They arranged for Devilfish's to pick them up and take them to the Tau base.

That Day the alliance was formed and Tau and Imperial guard fight together in the
Night Hawk regiment. Although many Imperial regiments believe they are traitors to ally with the Tau. however they remain neutral towards the Night Hawks

here are some pictures of My Night Hawk Army








leave comments please,

Rapouc

Tau would never ally with humans, only humans would ally with tau, because the tau would be exterminated the second the fighting stopped against the 'Nids.

not all of the tau have allied with the Night Hawks, and the ones that have been forced to due to the tryanid threat have become freindly with the Night Hawks and made an oath that they would serve as men in the Night Hawk Army and protect the
men that saved them.

Okay for starters there is no way this would work fluff wise. Both your regiment and the Tau would both be executed if Space Marines and other IG regiments are "nuetral". Make them "enemies". Then it will work as long as you make sure they don't come in contact with Imperials...

you do realise there is a vast amount of space between the tau empire and the cadian sphere of influence, right?

no I didn't, as I said I don't have any fluff or any of the codex's so no.

how about this- they keep the fact that there is small amount of Tau in the regiment a secret and when they bump into other IG armies they pretend the Tau are prisoners.

I'm curious- why "pretend"? I mean, they have penal legions... why not use tau prisoners the same way?

Listen to you all, stomping on a fellow gamer's creativity because you can't envision it as a feasible reality. Shame on you.

I think it's a great idea, there are many oaths and debts of honour in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Why not one more? Tau are noble and organised beings just as capable as humans of holding grudges and remembering great deeds. It's not like he wants to make an Eldar/Tyranid allied army! So why not have this bond of martial kinship between a splinter Imperial regiment and a Tau expeditionary force? I think it's great, the idea of an alliance forged in the heat of battle between representitive divisions of two great factions. Imperial Commanders utilise all manner of devices as needs must, whether they be frowned upon or not. Mostly this is in regard to non-standard vehicles and equipment, but I think it's perfectly acceptable for it to extend to unlikely alliances and the uncommon brotherhood between Xeno and man. Physical distance between the two races may be offset by the assumption that each faction is a splinter/expeditionary group of their respective races, possibly even cut off from their own empires by the said Tyranid infestation.

More power to you pal, they look great...have you thought of knocking out some rules for them? Check out http://www.games-workshop.com/legal.htm if you want to be sure you're not violating any copyright. GW actually encourage such creativity within the confines of some fairly loose restrictions. It'd be great to see what you can come up with...but invest in the appropriate codexes before you try to merge them. I thik the idea has great potential as you could draw on the strengths of both races, perhaps paying an exaggerated points cost for some of the more specialised or battle winning pieces of kit to represent their rarity for a potentially seperated/shunned faction. You might prohibit the use of certain technology/units altogether, such as Super heavy tanks (because the Night Hawks are both envied and shunned by other Imperial commanders for their effectiveness as a cohesive unit and because some consider them Heretical) and the use of flyers/orbital bombardment (because they're cut off from Imperial/Tau navy support).

I think it also opens up the potential to fight armys you would otherwise consider neutral, such as other IG regiments, Space Marines, Tau or Inquisitorial forces depending upon the manner in which their individual commanders each regard the nature of such an allliance.
