Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've recently fallen head-over-heels in love with Ulthwe, the black uniforms, the high numbre of psykers, everything!
I would really love to make a Guardian heavy Ulthwe Army, but I doubt that this could actually work on the battlefield without the Usf-list. The main list focuses on Aspect warriors, and few lists would work without a few of those, but they are supposed to be quite rare on Ulthwe, resulting in the maintaining of the elite Black Guardians.
To remedy this, I thought I'd model some extra heavy-duty Guardians (based on DA bodies with Storm Guardian heads) and counting them as Aspect Warriors:
Defenders - Avengers
Storm squads - Banshees
Spcl wpn squads - Fire Dragons
I'd love some feedback on these ideas, does anyone believe it could work, and would you allow it in a game?
thanks in advance
You can paint and model your army any way that you want them as long as your opponent know what everything is before the game starts.
IRON WITHIN, IRON WITHOUT!

Sounds like a good idea to me!
Currently painting and playing Waaaaagh Bigtoof 40k and Aeronautica Imperialis.
Don't swap the storm guardian squads IMHO. The power weapons are out of character for me. But what isn't is a bunch of flamer templates, which is a distinct possibility.
