Default The Valhallan Blizzard Dragoons

Curill sighed softly and looked at his short-range auspex. The enemy was supposed to come through this pass at any moment. The ferocious Deffskullz tribe of Orks had been plaguing the underground Erebus Hive through what was supposedly ventilation ducts that had been hidden on the surface. He had done this dozens of times before, but he worried. His new batch of dragoons seemed skittish. They sound gave off where they were when the machines were on, however, the cameleoline in their suits and grafted to the snow machines would disallow the enemy to have any good idea exactly where they were, just a good idea of where they were coming from.
Private Hawkins lowered his long-range sensorscope.

"Contact. 500 meters and closing."
Curill took a deep breath of the frigid, painfully frigid air
"Roger."
"400 meters and closing."
"Wait for it..."
Curill could tell his dragoons were anxious. They were green and they wanted to prove themselves. This was when they were most likely to do something stupid.
"300 meters and closing sir!"
The six guardsmen revved their Valhallan snowmobiles into a full start and raced down the hill at break-neck speed into a mob of orks about two dozen strong. These boys were eager, Curill would be very pleased if half of them survived the initial charge...

I LOVE the idea! Excellent, excellent, excellent!

However, 2 Hunting lances? I'd say drop one... they're pretty powerful already.

Other than that, I'd love to see some models if you have the chance!

Well done!

Very cool, but i got some questions. First, the Blizzard Dragoons cost is for the whole unit correct? Secondly, is the frag grenade launcher the same as just having frag grenades, or does it count as a grenade launcher that only launches frags. im assumin the first but hey... Finally, the dragoons are weaponless after they use their lances? At least put down that they have cc weapons, even though ruleswise it doesnt do anything.

There we are, fixed a little bit.

Also, since the hunting lance is machine mounted and not held, it'd be able to drive through opponents more easily.

As for models, I'm not sure where to start! Any suggestions? :-\


Cheers,
Lawrence.

I'm very fond of this idea,keep up the good work.
perhaps a rule that says the camelionline works only in a turn where the mobiles havent moved or shot?

This is such an awesome idea! Though yes I think the cameoline shouldn't work all the time.
