Creating Background For A Hypothetical Future Project.
MIne is awesome, simply because it involves Ogryns.
For those few of you who read my blog who don't know what an Ogryn is, they are basically Ogres in space. They are a race of Ab-humans which are strong, smelly, and fiercely loyal. Sort of like Scotsmen, come to think of it. Maybe that's why I like them so much.
In any case, Ogryn are represented by the Imperial Guard Codex (and the Vraks Rebel codex, but that's beside the point), and are generally regarded to suck pretty hard. I don't know enough about the Imp Guard codex well enough to make my own decision, but it's one of those things that I have seen enough times that it might become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But because I like them so much, I need to find a way to use them. Largely inspired by Sonsoftaurus' Scythiak Usurpation (again), I am strongly considering using fantasy Ogres, with bits left over from my Ork hordes.
So it is now simply a matter of creating a background for why my Ogryn are awesomer than the norm, and why they go to war. Well that last part is easy at least
FOR THE EMPEROR!
