40k army idea
So, CSM based army.
Band of holy knights getting their powers from somewhere. Basically all the normal Paladin and knights in shining armor sort of idea for them. Chaos Mutations are blessings from their god, refluffed as required.
Built using Bretonnians, with a lot of very traditional knighly designs and such.
Dunno what the actual list would be yet, but that's the basic idea as it starts.
Seems a very Slaaneshi army.
They already have the House Devine, the original Chaos Knight house, were the pilots now are decadent and incestous offspring of corrupted knights and nobles.
A CSM version of that would be pretty awesome and fit quite well.
I'm not going with a variant on CSM, I am actually doing like knights in shining armor.
Like, straight up good guys who go around helping the weak, battling evil, and generally being the typical Paladin.
CSM based as in using the CSM book. Not actually being chaos.
It's why all the chaos boons would need to be refluffed, because they're not chaos mutations or boons, they're holy blessings and divine interventions.
Umm... Why don't you just use Grey Knights, Dark Angels, or, if those knightly as fuck fellows somehow won't do, regural Space Marines?
CSM codex is shit (I know, I play CSM...) and you are only inviting edgelord comments by using prolly the worst fluffwise codex to represent Paladins.
Because none of those allow for divine intervention to happen when a Paladin strikes down a foul foe, to be granted holy power and the conviction to stay the path of the straight and narrow.
...yeah, are you aware all Gey Knights have psychic powers built around striking down an evil foe with the power of rightousness, while Dark Angels have special rulea and relics for smiting heretics?
So only for the boon table you are going to go all the lenghts to refluff Plague Marines, Daemon Weapons and general satanic stuff into divine work? Seems like going really too far imho buddy, but it's your game, do what you want.
To proove that I am not a complete asshole and that I was trying to point out you're using as wrong a tool for the job as you can, I'll try to give my two cents on your crazy idea.
Since it is obviously a fluff list (right?), I'd go heavy cc (very knightly but bad idea for competitive games), using Terminators as Paladins and regural CSMs/Berzerkers as knights, with allied IG platoons as men at arms. Also, allying an actual Imperial Knight would be a good idea.
Actually that makes sense.
A champion could be turned into a Spawn if their deity decided that they had dealt their foe a dishonourable blow (like striking when their back was turn or refusing to allow them to pick up a dropped weapon).
Helldrakes refluffed as Giant Eagles or actual Drakes?
Khorne Beserkers refluffed as Pentient Knights.
Noise Marines refluffed as a divine choir.
Summoned deamons could easily be angelic hosts called down. And as >>43066857 said, allied IG makes sense for men-at-arms and common-folk.
>refluff Plague Marines, Daemon Weapons and general satanic stuff into divine work?
It wouldn't be much of a refluff. All the chaosy stuff is already divine blessings. They're just blessings from twisted evil gods.
