Hello everyone. After watching a great movie that shed light on the winter war between russia and finland i have decided to base an army of the kick ass and the fearless finns. The following is a brief history and fluff about them i have come up with. I will be using steel legion minitures. Enjoy!
The Valkonien Guard are no strangers to war. For hundreds of years they have fought the enemies of mankind, primarily chaos as they reside just a system away from Medusa V. This much fighting has earned themselves the reputation of never having fallen back or retreating from a battle no matter how overwhelming the odds. However they have not only just fought the enemies of mankind...
During a lull between Chaos invasions of their sector the Vostroyan Guard seeked to expand their control over the surrounding systems including the Valkonien Guards planet. When Vostroyan diplomatic negotiations failed to seize Valkonien and its resources military action took over. For ten years a bloody and pointless battle was fought between two loyal armies of the emperor which drew into an ugly stalemate. Though outnumbering the Valkonien Guard 100 to one in men, 2000 to one in tanks and nearly complete dominance of the skys the Vostroyan Guard could not beat the determined entrenched defenders. Finally having exhausted their invading force the Vostroyans withdrew with bitter hearts forever holding a grudge against the small planet that defied them.

**Note: Will be posting picture soon, hope that it isnt to bad. Tell me what you think!**
guard, eh? trench warfare wouldn't suit a winter war force...they'd be light infantry/cameoline/ratling/veteran/marksmen, if you ask me. sounds cool.
and i REALLY want to see a guy with molotov cocktails 'counts as' a meltagun
I was actually thinking about creating a conversion like that. However with the trench warfare and Finns it actually is true. The Finnish when not out on gurrila attacks would return to their fortified lines that were mainly trenches. Thought it would be kinda fluffly.
