With the end in sight of my Sons of Horus infantry, I`ve decided to start the next project. This is a small stop-gap project while I wait to get my Solar Auxilia in the autumn. Since Book 5 was first discussed at the Heresy Weekender last year, I`ve been interested in an Imperial Militia / Warp Cult force. The release of Book 5 really firmed this idea up so I started to pick up kits last October. Naturally, this has got out of hand so that I`ve decided to put together two allied forces of about 600 points each.
I`ve given myself a few personal rules in collecting these allied forces:
- These are not competitive forces. I`m putting these together as a modelling project of units that interest me and will follow a narrative for each force.
- The Beastmen are actually bought as a 6th Edition WFB army and so are staying on square bases and won`t be heavily converted for Age of Darkness games. All the models are going to be used in a 40k Renegades and Heretics force as most can easily be re-purposed, but once again as an allies force with plenty of options.
- Each of the allied forces are designed to be used with either my Sons of Horus or future Solar Auxilia.
