what do you good people of the net world think of the idear of ..
a Zulu theamed army to figth the Pretorains
i had this idear cos matthew my friend has pretorains in the brittish army cloure of the 18 somethings and i like fightin him so i thourgh this themm would work well
it looks stupied to have eldar fighting Pretorains
these are the docoreains
1. warrior weapons (las pistols will be represented with throwing spears)
2. sanctioned psykers (i wanted shamen like dudes)
3. light infantry (well they are arnt they)
4. Ogyens (these will be the bigg nasty guys)
5. conscripts 9these are the normal tribes men)
i will use catachan models with spears and sheild and with black skin (that is another thing there is not efuf black medles in 40k)and some of the warhammer amason modles converted
as shymen and verterans
please could you tell me what you think and give any sugestions for what i can ues
please note that this is in noway a competative list and will have no waepons other thn las pistols and bolt pistols (aka throwing spearsand sharp spears) and ripper gund(aka throwing big stones) and any thing the psyker gets
powerwaepons are out as well and so are vehicals
what do you think and what idears cn you give on any of it?
i will get some picture of soem finished if the topic is popula enfuf
That army would get horribly owned, but it should be interesting.
Tyranids using converted guardsmen might work better.

well i know in the last battle report before third edition, my fav battle report was Battle for Glazer's Creek, and the "zulu" were repped by Orks.. which makes sense.. they are feral and wont to come on in a massive horde.. so just play Orks like i do (even though it says I play squats.... i play orks n crimson fists as well)
What about using a Kroot army for the Zulus?
They could probably look the part pretty easily.
I am the Aquila-Guerilla!
Yes that battle was inspired by the film Zulu. To thread starter - It was in White Dwarf 222, check it out.Originally posted by MattVarnish@Jan 15 2005, 19:32

They did a similar battle in Citadel Journal 48:
But with Modians vs Orks instead. I think the Mordians were supposed to replace the Praetorians, Mordians are in the new codex but Praetorians arn't, and they have a very similiar background, very well disciplined and so on.
I like the Praetorians though!
pretorains should be in the new codex btu they arn't sadly
that might be why my friend decided to get them and what is getting me to have the zulu's
