Welcome to Librarium Online!
Does it exist? After looking through the 'Dex, I've been thinking about basing an army around a force from an aspect shrine. Fire Dragons, Dark Reapers, Banshees, Scorpions... I think it would be possible to go Beil-Tan and load up on a boat-load of, say, Banshees, and base you're entire army around supporting them with Guardians/Vehicles. Or take a Mech Fire Dragon army against an AC. Something along those lines. Hmmm... Ninja Scorpians! :ninja:
Signatures: Why bother?
beil-tan represents the aspect army however if you want to do a shrine army then i suppose dire advenger shrine would be the easiest load up on advenger in serpents and a advenger style autarch or 2 and back it up with prisms or falcons

Its doable. You just take the appropiate phoenix lord and autarch or Avatar and then load up all your choices in the selected aspect. If its not a troop choice you will need to load up on guardians for the rest to represent citizens of that craftworld. Reapers will be a pretty good army. The rest probably not so much.
Reapers would be fun, but good I'm not so sure. It would be hell against Deepstriking assault units for one. But as long as your not limiting yourself just to Reapers it would be doable. I'd imagine it would be quite like the Tau actually, with all that long-ranged fire power an' all.
I was thinking, Altansar is the homeworld of Maugan-Ra right? Would that have an abundance of Dark Reapers by any chance?
I'm also liking the idea of using armies of Shinning Spears or Warp Spiders. Funny I don't play them as much as I do other aspects but I could see playing an army of them as being fun

I play a jetbike based army with 2 shining spear squads and 4 guardian jetbike squads, and I can tell you that it is amazing fun.
I used to use a warp spider based army and it just wasn't as cool, sadly. SPiders tend to get shot at. a lot.
