Wow. Such dedication, such love. Say yes.
I followed Calgor Grimm's idea and my players loved it. Thanks! However bad roleplaying and unlucky dice rolls... the supply ship didn't last the first game. Something to do with Eldar pirates and such. Real reason was that the Techmarine didn't know how to fix a leaky engine. Then the flamer suddenly discharged... only the Tactical Marine survived but he commited suicide by pulling the pin of a grenade next to his head. He didn't want to face trial.
Sad story of a KT.

You might be able to get some of it back for the Imperium though depending on what happened to it. Did the whole thing blow up or is there a chance it's derelict and your new KT might be able to arrange a mission to recover lost gear...potential mission idea there!
Glad to see that the idea seems favourable though. It makes sense really, I hate that players get such a huge shopping list of things and towards the end you get the big risk of everyone lumbering around with termie armour, storm bolters and power fists, each one dishing out more firepower than a small army, shrugging off almost any hit thanks to that 1/3 (ish) invulnerable save and the high AP just means that very little seems to get through short of Melta/Plasma/Las Cannon. Takes some of the edge off it.
I must say though Dorn, I loved reading about the weapons with unique quirks and qualities. Makes me want to play DoW2 again. I'd love to read a few of the unique items you came up with as I'm looking for items with specialist qualities for a BC game and I can easily adapt a few...plus I like really like reading fluffy bits and am a bit of a spreadsheet fanatic myself.
