Ok, so I want to do some background for my Imperial Guard army.
My 2 main enemies are Nids and SM(The SMs are traitorous, altough they don't follow chaos). Also my army will have plenty of Armor and Plasma weaponry so I thought it best to locate them near a Forge World. Anyways, heres what I have so far, feel free to add on to it...or smack me for doing something stupid :mellow:
Located in the galactic south, the Harkonus system has been long thought useless by the Imperium. It's many death worlds were shunned for easier, more habbitable planets until word got through that a tyrannic hive fleet was moving it's way through and coming dangerously close to the forge world of Gryphonne IV. Fleets were sent out to fortify planets in an attempt to stop the aliens assault.
One of the planets colonised was Harkonus Triarius, the 3rd planet of the system. The guardsmen sent to scout the planet were soon met by Ogryns native to the Death World. Though uneasy at first, the 2 groups soon managed an alliance against the Tyranids that were quickly moving in system.
Along with the Ogryns, the planet also had a very rich supply of materials commonly used in weapons manufacturing. However, these materials were nigh unreachable through the dense jungles that covered the planet. To reach them drastic terraforming techniques were used to kill off the jungle. Although this was effective and did no physical damage to the atmosphere it did strain the realations between the Imperium and the Ogryn tribes of the Northern regions(the Equatorial Jungles remained and the Ogryns in those areas stayed loyal).
A few northern tribes banded together and launched an attack on the Imperial soldiers, but with out the advanced weaponry they stood no chance against the newly aquired tanks that were provided by Gryphonne IV in return for the planets many usefull materials.
ok, this is where I draw a blank...I don't quite know where to go from here, and any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance! :lol:
To start with, HOW IN THE EMPERORS NAME DID THEY STOP A WHOLE SPLINTER FLEET!?! Before you can go anywhere with this you have to answer that one.
Well, so far I haven't even written that yet...That's part of where I am stumped at.Originally Posted by Alexei Vor Yaruk
Although, as I said, they were sent out along with many other Imerial Armys/Fleets. They were also backed by my friends marines until they turn on the Imperium(for an unknown reason thus far ). So, to answer your question, it wasn't just them as that would be impossible. I'd imagine the Imperium would throw millions of troops at the Tyranids to protect their very few Forge Worlds.
Anyways, keep it coming, I demand MORE!
It was an unusually small splinter fleet/due to foresight the Tyranids were halted in space battles severly limiting their numbers on the planet making it easy for the guard to finish them off. Or with the help of marines.
Maybe something like eventually gaining the respect and fealty of the Ogryns due to the ferociousness of your guard army or you could just wipe them all out.
Some of the tyranids that got through, infected your hostile Ogryns and plagued your guard army. One of them got a hold of one of your battleship STC template when it was destroyed and fell to the planet. It was devoured and with it the tyranid acquired all the knowledge and hence creating the threat of summoning a new tyran invasion. This particular tyranid could be your hybrid patriarch. You have to find him and kill him before it's too late.
Is this actual fluff, or is it just an idea your putting forward?Originally Posted by Grand Master Saiyan SanguineAs I said, the Equatorial Ogryns remained loyal because they had not lost any of their precious Jungle. But, I like your idea, and I'll put in that many of the Northern tribes ceased their attacks once they saw the might of the imperial tanks. Those that still survive have become nomads, wandering the wastes of the far north. They are occasionaly rounded up by slavers to do manual labour at the mines and factories that cover the landscape.Originally Posted by Grand Master Saiyan SanguineI really like this. I could convert an Ogryn left over(I will have 2 left overs once I get my Lead Belchers) to have mutations on him, and allow my friend to use it as a special character...a possible target for an assination mission :lol:Originally Posted by Grand Master Saiyan Sanguine
Keep the good stuff coming, I'll write all of this into my fluff and post it a bit later on. THANKS!
My first comment is an idea yes. I read somewhere that wild Ogryns respect power and developed a sense of servitude to those they viewed strong, i thought it was a good meld to your fluff. I was glad to be of assistance.
