Default 2050pts Space Pirates! *Counts-as army*

Space pirates are a organisation of Rebels,Criminals and other Scum that have fled the empire. they often boardering and plundering isolated imperial vessels.stealing any useable things they can. they wear stolen or repaired power armors from battlefields.damages and scratches are common on their ecuipment.most of their Corsairs only wear scout armour since its easyer to get. they have a Few terminator armors captured that their elites are using,or their skilled Captains. some rare cases even shows they repaired dreadnoughts. they prefer skimmering fast vehicles such as the Land speeders.but are sometimes seen using Tanks.

alright. since a long while i have had a army called Space Pirates. was my first own addition to 40k.it had Orks and IG units.imperial criminals etc that joined. though, now i want to use it legal. so i made up a SM list. u might ask,why SM?. my answer is simple. Pirates are Few in numbers and i want them few and strong.

i have Renamed all units more "piraty". i have not used much vehicles in it, but i might add converted IG tanks i have.yet,this is the basic list containing quite much squads.


i have 5 SM models,i have converted them up to my first 5 to become a "Storm Corsair" squad.to be seen in Showcase soon

HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mine includes crew( slightly altered IG), boarding parties, commadores,
captains, boarding ships, heavy weapon artilleries, ETC. in addition you can have a few renegades ( Tau fire warriors, Eldar guardians, upto 1 space
marine squad, an ork mob. stuff like that).

Pretty good.
Though to follow the Pirate theme, I'd add Drop pods to the tactical squads to represent the fact that pirates only beach there boat 1-2 times every 6 months, and use long boats to get to shore.
Just make sure that they all can deep strike.
