Default Starting a Valhallan Army?

Hey all. I was thinkin about possibly starting a small Valhallan army like 500 points for the time being. Can any one post an army list or some suggestions to get started. I want to try and use only Valhallan models if that is possible. Pleas get back to me when you can. Thanks.

The down side to them is that the modle cost a arm and leg, and the heavy weapons are just gay looking.

For how much it'll cost you, might as well go forge world

Being of Lithuanian(It was part of russia) descent, I was immediately drawn to VALHALLANs. Yay! I ended up just using the actual models for the command squads and the whole HQ catagory. All of my tanks are snow camo, with catachan green spot, so it looks good. Just get some good cash... Models are about 5-7 american apeice. for me, that is just too much. But if you can, you will no doubt have the coolest army at your local store. Yay! Everybody loves Valhallans! And if you do start using them, you MUST include mortars and at least one tank! Sorry, you don't have too, but it fits the fluff real well.

They have a lot of veterans, they hate Orks, they use Conscripts, and they fight close-order style.

Thier army was undoubtedly based off the Soviets, so they use massive artillary barrages, using mortars and cannons, and then make a mass infantry advance, not charge. They don't allways run. The normal soldier will probably not get a chimera, but the command squad will. Normal soldiers will just hitch a ride on a leman russ. The soviets had the most affordable, and best bang for the buck tanks some say in history. The T-54 was especially simple and straight forward. They do not use special troops, so probably the only Elites should be vets. They are genuises when it comes to military manufacturing. Almost every soldier will be a conscript in a Soviet army, and I believe GW got the idea of commissars from the Red army. The commissars were devotees of the communist way, strong party members, and ruthless individuals. Besides the communist part, that pretty much describes the IG commissar. In SM, include a couple Chaplains and assign them to squads like commissars. That is the Soviet way of doing things, and not necessarilly the Valhallan, but I hope it heps a bit. Oh, make sure, if you name characters, or even lietenents, give them Russian names. EG: Vladimir, Boris, Vassily, Basil, Arkadia. All last names should probably end in -kov. For the homeworld, get a map and gget some russian city names.

Were can you get Valhalla models???
I've never seen any other than the codexes

P.S. Boris is not a Russian name it's Check.
If you keep with the fluff all the way mount them in Chimeras and just use them as tanks not transports.
