Sorry, bud. I did snap at you a little bit there. That's why I went back and changed it; there was no need for that nonsense. It's my fault, communicating my intentions poorly, not yours.

Fallen Angels? That's interesting...but, ideally, I'd like keep them within the chapter. I'd like them to be Imperial Fists with a mutated gene seed. How might such a thing happen?

By the way, what's your 'Personal Text' about? ???


@ Anberlin and Inquisitor Lord Seto: Great background material to work with there. Thanks a lot.

Wow, in like 5 min. Tom got another +1 karma. Congrats!

Its no problem, I can find alot in the online store, for some reason it fasanates me to look at all those bitz.

If you want more power armoured models, look at the Wulfen models, see how they adapted the armour for Werewolves. Now adapt that to vampires.

I'm looking for something regal here and I think 13th company represent something far too feral. The sort of Vampires I'd want to represent are supposed to be ancient and wise creatures, but at the same time gifted with great and terrible power and martial prowess. Yet more similarities with normal Space Marines...I think the groundwork has been laid for the whole vampirism tie-in but has, for some reason, been overlooked.


EDIT - I particularly like the swords from the Dark Elf Corsairs. I think the Vampires would definately have to have them in place of chainswords. How about we look at stuff I could attach to their armour? Perhaps some Black Templars gubbins to make them look more gothic? Something fairly unique that could be uniformal among squad members is what I'm looking for here...something to set them apart from other assault squads. The swords are a nice start but what, in your mind, symbolises a vampire?

Oh yes, I like! This is what I'm talking about. Maybe I could model those big skulls into their backpacks? It'd mean having them on foot though which I'm not so keen on...unless they're small enough to be attached to a jump pack?

There's all sorts of creepy bones and things there. I could hang skulls on their belts. So is that what you visualise when you think of vampires; bones and grim trophies?

I think of dead stuff, so bones and stuff like that is perfect.

You could also use some of those weapons if you wanted, that of couse if your using jump packs (BP and CCW). If you used the old style jump packs (Here, just scroll down a bit.). The old packs would make sence if they where on a long mission, so they have yet to upgrade to the new tech.

I want to make one of these units/armies now!

Old equipment sounds like a good idea, that'll make them look ancient. Good idea. Right, I've got plenty of ideas now but I've got a few other projects that should really be taken care of before I start a new one. I've still got to paint my Damocles, assemble and paint my other Landspeeder, my Predator and drop pods. It may be a while before I get to these guys. At least it'll give me time to think about background. Thanks for your help!
