I was just wondering, what's the fluff for Vostroyans, they just kind of showed up with no real warning... To me they look like what the Vallhallans would look like if they mated with some Chem Dogs... But besides that, is there a site or an article or something that has fluff on the Vostroyans, I'm just kind of interested...
There in white dwarf pg.44 U.S. issue 316. Has a pretty good amount of fluff for them in there as well as doctrines if you want to play them fluffy.
They come from a planet called Vostroya which is very big with the adapteus mechanicus and its a very big manufactering world. They have a regiment called the first born becasue if your the first born son to a family you have to pay the tith which is join the regiment. They got to do this because they rufused to go and help the emperor during the horus heresy, they settled the debt and agreed on a plan drawn up by the Ultramarines primarch. Supposedly its a great honor to be in the first born anyway.

Sorry to jump on your bandwagon, but i, too, had a Vostroyan fluff question.
Are we to believe that not a single first born on that planet is female? As there are no female models (at least that i have seen) what could be the deal? As i currently field Battle Sisters and am looking to ally them Vostroyans, i came up with something to enhance my personal fluff background and here it is:
The Vostroyans have, for a thousand years, sought to settle their score with the Emperor after screwing up so grandly during the Horus Heresy. It is a source of pride to have a child serve in the army and great pains are taken to insure that their weapons are the finest as well as the most elegantly crafted (recall that Vostroya is a forge world!) They know no fear.
Therefore, a female firstborn is 'donated' to the Schola Progenium to be made a Battle Sister!
What say you all?
we have to as it states directly that a first born son is to be inducted into the guard. Meaning it wouldn't matter if your a female at all and you were born first, you could be born second in the family but you would still be the first newborn male child to the family. And from what it sounds the 1st born regiment isn't gender mixed which is really rare although it could happen, most don't do it, so its all male.
A vostroyan just wouldnt be a vostroyan without a fluffy mustach...now thats a challenge to make look good on a chick =D.

yes in a white dwarf number 317 in australia they had a whole 18 pages dedicated to vostroyan fluff , doctrines and converting and painting vostroyan rough riders , heavy weapons , tanks , and commissars it was really great so if you can get back issues or have a look on ebay the white dwarf will answer your questions.

Here is a question for everyone who has a copy of that WD (AUS issue 317).
There is a two page spread of a 2,000 point Vostroyan ‘Eavy Metal painted studio army (pages 50 & 51 of the Australian ed.). The Command Squad of the Heavy Weapons Platoon has TWO Heavy bolters and a junior officer!?!?
Is that legal? I had thought that Command Squads could only take one Heavy Weapon. Anyone want to clear this up for me?

To restate my case: Due to the fact that Vostroyan firstborn baby boys were entered into the service to settle their debt to the Emperor, & due to the fact that not every Battle Sister started out an orphan left on the front steps of the Schola Progenium but often were 'donated' by Great Houses throughout the Universe, I feel that some of the Battle Sisters in various Orders are Vostroyans.
Bear in mind that this is my own personal fluff. I have been fielding Battle Sisters for some tiime now and have just recently begun collecting Vostroyans and wanted to establish a connection. In time, after centuries of the Firstborns establishing themselves on the battlefield, the 'powers that be' approached the Ecclesiaechy, requesting that an Order be established on their planet. Of course the Ministoroum would not hear of this as the Vostroyans still worship the Deus Mechanicus. On the other hand, if they could be converted, this might have a profound effect on every other Foirge World. So it is agreed that if Vostroya publicly (and loudly) renouonces the Machine God, then the Ecclesiarchy will agree to the creation of 'The Order of the Penitent Heart'.
I am still working the bugs out (no, not Tyrranids!) and would enjoy your input. (And I can already smell the Promethium!)
