Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has links/info/etc. on the background of the Epic UK Vanaheim Air Cavalry Imperial Guard or if they know that it's a fanmade background. If it is fanmade are there links to the fan fluff on it?

Googling the name in relation to epic or wh40k only turns up the EUK army list so there doesn't seem to be a 40k Wiki entry on them either.

I was looking at this earlier today actually.... according to lexicanum Vanaheim is a forge world.... not much else.... is there no explanation at the end of the EUK codex?

No fluff or guidance on where they took inspiration from in building it. Just that they wanted a light mobile force with no ground AA.

All I have to say is that a certain film influenced the choice of name.

The list isn't based of any GW fluff. It's main goal was to try and produce an 'Air mobile' style force to EA.

As Tiny Tim said if you play the list with Ride of the Valkyries in your mind you won't go far wrong... win games may be another matter :D

Well, I'm planning on taking them to the Battle of the Thames and wanted to know if there was any proud history to back them up...

For linage of Van Air Cav just insert US ARMY 1st Cav Div in Vietnam with the names changed - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_Cavalr ... ted_States) There is little doubt in my mind that, besides a few movies, that is where GW nick'd the idea ... I'd imagine along with movies and the Band Of Brothers series, I think GW nick'd the Elysian Drop Troops idea from the US ARMY 101 ABN AASLT Div. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/101st_Airb ... ted_States) Some may say the US 82d ABN or UK Paras ... but being a vet of the 101 ... I'm a bit biased ... 8)
