Where can I find some fluff on the savlar chem dogs? Are there any novels or articles written on them because I cant find anything. If anyone knows anything please post it up here.
Approx how many regiments do they have?
did they do anything except help at armageddon?
whats their colour scheme?
Their fluff is either in the IG codex or Codex: Armageddon, can't remember which.
Their world is a penal colony with horrible environmental damage and they are forced to use chem inhalers to insure that they will not run away in battle. They are also known for looting everything that isn't bolted down or one fire.
I have read the guard codex but theres nothing in there about them. Is there much in codex: armageddon? enough worth buying it for? anything except 1 passage of fluff...
The only rules set in there that isn't outdated is the Cult of Speed rules for the orks. If you aren't looking for that, there's not much else there.
Check this out:
Scroll down a bit and there you have them!
There's a big piece about them, including a short story and the old rules, in the chapter approved annual.
Basically, they're the scum of the universe. Savlar is a nasty mining penal colony where they send some of the worst thieves, arsonists, murderers, antisocials and general scum from other worlds. Savlar troops have all the the ethical sensibilities and low cunning of a ****roach. The short story was pretty good actually, it really bought home how callous and devious the chem-dogs can be.
As for colour scheme.. it depends.. Scummy brown probably works, but depends who they've been stealing or looting from recently.

Were there actual rules for the savlar chem-dogs in chapter approved?
Yeah, they had a load of special rules. Some of which were quite fun. However, I don't think they're legal anymore, having been replaced by the doctrines system (making it annoyingly impossible to field realistic armageddon ork hunters.)Originally Posted by LordLink
You could always ask your friends if you can use them, I bet they won't whine about it.
