Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have 2 questions regarding veteran squads:
1) I just started guard and am planning on using vets. I'm using Cadian figures (only because they're cheap and easy to find), and I'm trying to figure out what to use as vets.
I'm thinking of using either catachan guardsmen or just more cadians but painted differently.
What advice would you guys have on my dilemma? Or is there another alternative?
2) Also, what can I use for plasma guns rather than the metal blisters? I'd really rather not buy 6 of those just for the PG's.
Swap for some Space Marine or Chaos Space Marine plasmaguns then convert them to fit your model.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
You can kitbash cadians and Catachans. Cadian torso and heads with catachan arms and legs. I'm toying with that right now for mine. Then I'm using chaos SM plasma rifles.
I bought the bits from BW Bitz before they closed.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
Well here's what I'm going to be using for part of the squad, they're from Forge World but they're very much worth the money, I'll then use normal bodies for the others and convert them to have close combat weapons, should look decent I think.
