The Conquest of Hellion V

The local GW stores have been running a multi store, month long 40k campaign called the Conquest of Hellion V.  Essentially, you make a 10k point army list and then play games at 1750 points each.  Any unit that is wiped out is removed from your master army list and you can longer use it to build the smaller forces.  It's a lot of fun.  Every time you pick up a new unit in the store during the campaign, you get to pull cards from a deck that give the unit special abilities.  I picked up a unit of Fire Warriors to act as an honor guard for an Ethereal.  I got +1 BS and the Deep Strike special rule.  These Fire Warriors are now BS 5 and can hit the board wherever they're needed!  Tau super commandos!  I'm going to have to mod them up somehow to denote their elite status.
