So, this is the start of my Imperial guard blog. I am in the prosses of building a 1500 points imperial guard army based around the desert planet Mitra IV. For those of you interested this blog will be filled with fluff and pictures as my army develope. Please feel free to comment on anything from fluff and army composing to may painting skills (that could be better...)
So, here it all starts. My commanding officer Lieutenant William Schumanns first wisit to the planet Mitra IV:
"Lieutenant William Schumann placed the map down on the table in front of him. The battle cruiser “Indefatigable” were an old and faithful ship in the Imperial Navy and his quarters were small and badly equipped. His nostrils burned from the oil-smelling air going through the ventilation shaft onboard the battle cruiser. The Cadian officer knew, however, that he needed to use the time in the best possible way. It was late and he was tired, but he had to prepare. Had to read his orders once again, memorizing them one final time.
Tomorrow he and his team of four fellow guardsmen would board a Valyrie transport, and be transported down to the surface of the planet Mitra IV. On this desert planet civil war has waged for ages. But now, the forces of the Tau had put their eyes on the planet. His orders were to raise a local army to fight of the possible Tau invasion. The Mitraians were used to war, and getting them to fight would not be that difficult. Getting them to fight together and not each other was an entirely different matter.
Lieutenant Schumann looked at his Storm Bolter. His two best friends the next few days would be this old bolter and his power sword. The team was equipped lightly, in this first phase their objective was only recognizance and to make contact with two local warlords. Then, when contact was established, more men and weapons would be transported down on the planet surface. As the planet of Mitra IV had seen its share of fighting the last years, technological advanced weapons were few and far between. The old fashioned missile launcher and grenade launcher, besides the good old lasgun, where the Mitraians weapons of choice."
