I was just perusing the Forgeoworld site and I see these models for the Red scorpions, who are they? Models look kool.
He's coming for you...
They are a chapter created by forgeworld to tie into "The Anphelion Project" Imperial Armor Book 4. I beleive they are used to fight tyranids mainly as thats what the anphelion project centers around, but you'll have to get the book to be sure.

I was talking to a guy who played and collected the game since it first appeared in Dragon Magazine. The Red Scoprians (according to him) were the very first SM chapter to encounter the Tyrnids. They were so good at it, that they wrote the tactica on fighting them. They went on expedtions to capture different bio forms, got into the hive ships and exploded them, etc.
GW seems to be trying to bring back some of there older stuff from first and second edition, and its about time! I would like to see the overwatch and the continuation fire rules come back.
Believe me, some of those awesome rules (such as overwatch and jamming even) will never be brought back cause that would make the game more complicated. (and if you haven't noticed, the games been getting a bit simpler since second edition.)Originally Posted by WarStorm

Hum, a chapter that is based around fighting tyranids. Would be kool to have them, with a deathwatch kill team, or Xeno hunter allies whent he codex comes out.
Are there special rules for the scorpions, or are they just a nilla fluff chapter thats painted a certain way and has a history?

there are special rules for the red scorpions, although i'm not sure what they are.
I have read fluff that would suggest they have lots of termies, use lots of nonstandard tanks, and are anti-world eaters to the max

I need to play more!
they are completly detailed in the Imperial Armor, I dont have it yet, but they use alot of tanks, terminators, and they use weapons that were made to kill 'Nids. The entire army has Prefered enemy, tyrnids. Im thinking an entire army of deathwatch. Fluff wise, they are based on Mars, they train and study with the preisthood.
