Having worked as a farmer and woodcutter for most of my life i became determined to do something that would leave my mark after i was gone. Since then i got back to studies, and i am now on an engineering course at the university. On my free time i like playing and so i became interested in creating my own games or, in the shorter term, modding games to get something closer to what i would like games to be.

0 comments by GreenScorpion on Apr 18th, 2015

A follow up on my previous blog:
This blog is intended to be a list of ideas related with some of the traits that are available for renegades on "War Machines of the Lost and the Damned" and how they can likely be applicable ingame.

Uncertain Worth - Renegades may be extremely loyal and reliable soldiers but they can also be cowards that flee at the first sight of blood. In the army list present in Imperial Armour books this is represented through a random leadership but ingame this could be represented by a random reduction of current morale, which would mean that your renegades might have lost some morale even before entering combat and thus being less likely to resist long without breaking.

Chaos Covenant - A mark like specialization of characters in the books, this could likely be represented with the use of researches and upgrades (visual or not) which were dependent on the covenant and would improve unit stats depending on the deity chosen. Likely not as restricting as a mark choice nor as rewarding but nevertheless a choice. Available covenants would likely depend on character type (no psykers with a covenant of khorne for example).

Fanatic - Particularlly loyal troops exist among renegades even if their worth might not always be dependable. These soldiers would likely have better default morale and thus be less likely to suffer significantly with uncertain worth due to larger starting morale and a smaller chance for losing morale.

Aura of the witch - Pretty much psykers are powerful when connected fully to the warp but more dangerous for their allies also. This could be represented by better stats for renegade psykers but also a chance to blow up and damage anything near them.

Baleful judge - Enforcers can execute renegades to make them fight better. On the siege of Vraks books the IG name for this is used instead: Summary Execution. Pretty much works like the Summary Execution from a commissar.

In it for the money - As mercenaries Marauders are pretty much only in a fight while they think it is worth it. This could likely be represented through the reduction of resource income for each marauder in your army (you either have the money to pay them or they go away :P ).

Some other traits and wargear on that army list could be interesting but most of the remaining ones would be better represented visually by models which would be usually associated with those benefits/gameplay oportunities.

Olá! Vai-se andando. Ocupado como já começa a ser habitual mas relativamente bem no geral. Basicamente podia estar melhor mas podia estar pior.

They are indeed masters of deceipt and could easily trick their enemies into thinking they had won while despite the fact they had not won.
Regardless, I was thinking about a human vs human combat when I came up with that text. The shadows may hide many things but the obvious things are not always the best storyline.

"Let them think they had their victory
Let them celebrate
Let them eat and drink
Let them dance until they can't stand up straight
We will wait in the shadows for our moment.
When they feel exhausted by the celebration
When the drinks reveal their influence
When they fall asleep peacefully
We will step out from the shadows and into their nightmares.
Only then will they understand their victory was merely the courtesy of a last meal.
Death will be all that remains of those moments of celebration."

The answer to that good sir is probably not. If the said model came from the IDH mod, it cannot be included no matter how modified in any UA installation.

If custom model? Then most likely, but it is up to Brass Scorpion. :)

It is a custom model concept but Brass Scorpion?!? Really?

Better ask Lord_Cylarne that since I am making this for my Veteran Mod and he hasn't said anything about wanting them for UA or something like that. If he wants to use them in UA I have no problems in sending the model to him as I did with other concepts in the past but unfortunately I can't provide you a better answer unless I ask him myself.
