New Direction - Which 40K Faction Should Receive The Index Treatment Next?
So, as you might know we'll be having a few articles covering Battlefleet Gothic coming up soon. In the meantime, it seemed best to plan ahead and ask a brief question: Given we have four finished articles, which one do you want to see given the Index Astartes/Xenology treatment next?
Thus far the blog has covered examples of Traitor Legions, Loyalist Chapters, Tau Empire and Craftworld Eldar armies. It's a good variety, but each of them has usually been made in response to the failure of a storyline or codex in one way or another, giving examples of how they could have instead been handled. As the Space Wolves are currently being hit hard with the stupid stick however, and Curse of the Wulfen is hardly the best story to try and base a new army article off of, this could be a chance to take a stab at a less seen army or one which is often pushed out of the spotlight.
Thus far, I have been toying with a few ideas for an Imperial Guard regiment or a Necron Dynasty, each intended to help subvert a few established elements or restore old ideas. In the case of the Necrons you can probably guess what that is. Besides that however, the Dark Eldar and Adepta Sororitas are also fairly high up on the list. While not nearly as well thought out or developed in my head, there is at least a solid concept behind each one to help serve as a starting point for a future army. That said, i'd hardly be averse to taking a stab at something less known or perhaps even going back to an older idea. After all, the traitor and loyalist examples were just World Eaters and Iron Hands successors. So, if you wanted a more general force or something taken in a very different direction that's fairly viable as well.
Anyway, that's really it for today. If you have any specific thoughts or preferences for a force, please leave it in the comments. Really, i'll even take a stab at the Harlequins if anyone does want it.
