    codex black star

    ive been meaning to post this up so here it is
    can i have some opinionson this plz
    Origins
    The origins of the black star mercenaries are unknown but their history has pointed towards the imperium. The system that they derive is outside the imperiums reach due to a ongoing warp storm that they only seam to navigate. The storm is caused by the systems strange sun, the sun is a dark purple and in space seems black surrounded by purple flames hence the name “black star”.

    History
    The black star mercenaries have appeared constantly through out the 41st millennium
    answering the calls for help in the galaxy but often attack chaos because of an apparent grudge between them this is thought because chaos attacked a black star convoy. The Tau also have issues with the black star it is believed that the Tau distrusts them and prefer the Kroot as allies.(fluff changed for chaos players)

    I think its a little generous. That Void Cannon is insanely strong. Also you have a champ for 37 points with a WS of 6. My chaos lord doesn&#39;t even get that and he&#39;s got a base cost of 60pts.

    Also one hole in your story is that chaos would never seek there help.........
    least not this chaos player....... mua ha ha ha...........

    man this is way over powered. mercenaries shouldnt have better gear then the imperium.

    chaos doesnt buy weapons from anyone, we steal them and forge them in the eye.

    i dont think they have better war gear than the impirium

    their tanks and skimmers arent very good and their standard gun is rather lousy

    and ive edited their stats to make them more fair

    Heres a silly question.

    What race are the Black Stars?

    :a
    Whoso would be a man must be a non conformist
    People should be taught what is, not what should be.

    they are a sub race of humans but mildly mutated by the black star

    but the mutation is more like space marrines implants like speed enhacers ect

    They are still overpowered by far:

    Firstly your lord cannot be more powerful that a SM/CSM lord, thwy are mercs not space marines.

    Secondly, a drone with I5, whats up with that, all drones or automatons have I2.
    Also your blade master shouldn&#39;t have WS 6, thats way out.

    Otherwise this army seems like a twisted lovechild of the SM and guard codices, with no tanks :lol: .

    Nearly all army codexes that are made up are usually wishful thinking i.e way to powerful, playtest and change them. Massacre of 1000 chaos space marines is highly unlikely as the chaos space marines are not as petty as do despatch an entire company of their legion to fight mercenaries
    Your fluff doesnt work, for them to have anything to do with chaos they would have to be near the eye of terror, anything to do with tau - other side of galaxy it is not possible to travel that far quickly even in the 41st millenium
