Default My next army.... An interesting concept

Okay, next year when i have finished all my current armies and have some more money to blow i plan to get a Codex IG army (instead of my deathworlders)

Basically the combat outfit of this army will lie with artillery and veterans. Heavy with both.

But, for somthing REALLY fluffy i was thinking of this.
The planet they originate from is close to the Eye of terror, warp anomilies occour frequently around this planet. These happenings have affected the planets population mentally, everyone originating from the planet are touched by the warp. All of them have some form of psychic promise or talent. Some more than others...

The army founded on this planet contains many psykers. Sanctioned Psykers are readily present. Due to this psychic presence, the inquisition are interested in the regiment and investigate and watchover it with much scrutiny on a regular basis, an inquisitor and his personal detail have been assigned to perform this exact task.

Another aspect used within the regiment, instead of comm-links , astropaths are used to communicate messages. This allows for the force to communicate freely and not worry with enemy intervention as much as a regular comm link network

Doctrines:
Psykers
Veterans
Iron Discipline
Independant commissars
????

what you think?

+++Maybe hardened fighters because you said that they were effected by the warp? Great fluff by the way. +++

I think that is a good looking type of fluff. The doctrines seem to fit, but I go with Krieg's suggestion for the Hardened fighters.

I like it. You might want to add hardend fighters or something, it would be shame to let that extra doctrine point go to waste. If nothing else, pick up Close Order Drill, since it's free.

what about that one, I think it's called chem inhalers, but I don't have a codex handy - but it essentially give a whopping huge Ld. bonus and makes your guys never run away. In the case of your psyker army, it could be a telepathic link and sort of 'hive mind' idea that keeps them all brave rather than actual chem inhalers as a piece of equipment.

Chem-inhalers can't be combined with iron discipline.

Grenadiers might be good, representing Inquisitorial elements seconded to the force, or simply the fact that being so close to Cadia they get all the good gubbins.

I know it's a terrible doctrine points wise, but what about "Cyber Enhancement"? Instead of gears and robotic appendages it could represent the fact that they have premonitions which sometimes keep them alive - dodging a bullet at the last moment, ducking under the swipe of a chain-axe, etc.
