View Full Version : Chaos using imperial ground defences?

What do you think of allowing chaos to use imperial ground defences? I already have 3 FW hydra eplacements for my imperials, and just relieved 3 metal hydras and was considering to paint them traitor guard for my chaos.

I dont see a problem, in fact I would encourage it as a way to add some much-needed variety to the Chaos list.

Similarly, id have no problems at all with chaos using thunderhawks.

I agree, whatever arsenal the Imperial Navy can muster, it seems logical and fluffy that the Chaos Traitor guard should have also. I really like the idea of a Chaotic heavy Flak Cannon, perhaps a conversion with the barrel? of the cannon finishing with a skulls mouth. Perhaps a marked Chaos or Undivided Sortie might use a Marauder, but a Chaos SM chapter may use a thunderhawk ?

the Emperor Children were exclusively using thunderhawks during the horus heresy, Lunar Wolves had mostly moved over to them too. It's not a big stretch of the imagination that a few of them still survive.

Well you've probably seen the 40k renegade militia sabre platforms, so i take that as good faith that it would be fluffy to use hydras for chaos :D

the LATD list has traitor Hydras so I see no problem with it.

i don't see a problem with it, chaos are just imperials with spikes anyway.
