I'm lucky most of my FW stuff survived the great purge to make room for primaris and horus heresy honestly, but I'm still pissed GW squatted the Gorgon right after I bought a brand new legit one from FW and it's still available on the site to boot.

Fuck you GW I'm running it at 50 and there's nothing you can do to stop me.

Dan writes more gritty military books, I also got the impression he wanted to avoid alot of the BS. Bit like forgeworld's attitude in say siege of vraks. More 'real'

I recall ADB or someone similar continually and hamfistedly making references to 'hurr the guy was easily shot because he wasn't wearing a helmet'
While this is true, referencing it in that way just came across as ''Hurr I get that joke' compared to say abnett writing about guardsmen in a seedy gambling den full of prostitutes on their downtime.
If you wanted to address the helmet realism issue just have it as a morale booster/fanatical faith issue. No different than a high ranking officer leading a first wave charge or a black watch bagpiper marching into enemy fire.

I like Abnett alot but he needs to just ignore this sort of thing and concentrate on a realistic approach instead of baiting himself into commenting on it

That with some slight mixed action scenes could make a great film

Solar Auxilia were essentially the Horus Heresy version of the Imperial Guard, as it was much more uniform back then and mostly recruited from Sol and the Segmentum Solar(Hence Solar Auxilia). There are undoubtedly regiments form that Segmentum, and possibly Terra itself, that are equipped and trained similarly to the Auxilia and Heresy era Imperial Army.

Personally I'd say they're fine as proxies, though they'll play different, given the difference between HH 30" Lasrifles and Modern 40k 24" Lasguns or 18" Hotshots.

Did you already have some or did you just want to get them as proxies?

What news have we heard about the upcoming deathguard releases? Anyone know when new kits or the new codex will drop?

Rule of cool. Tactics in 40k is very much fictionalised, very few factions fight realistically. Steel Legion are using WW2 mechanised infantry tactics, Krieg are stuck in the first world war, Mordians are Napoleonic. It doesn't make sense, as long as it looks cool.

I love emperor's children lore the most but I'm not sure about painting them. I could just do some noise marines in their colourful scheme and do a nice, generic red and gold for everyone else.
I really want ally on daemons that aren't all Slaanesh or maybe a nice mix...

I wish I wasn't so indecisive.
