For example all of my veteran sergeants have the vox helmet for a head. then i put granades and the standard kit on his back. the i cut most of the barrel of their las guns to make them look like a sub machine gun type of weapon. they kinda look like bad ass special forces when their done. im thinking about making a whole veteran squad that looks like that. thats just one example of what i do to my guys i want to know what you guys do to yours.
Well i'm going to pimp out my veteran squad with the resperiators helmets that forgeworld creates, all i have to do is order a bunch of them. I really like the Karskrin Squad, so i wanted my vets to look almsot identical, if not almost.
"DID WE JUST SIGN UP FOR A SUICIDE MISSION, RICO?" "YEAH WE JUST DID, WHEN WE ENLISTED" LOVE THE IMPERIAL GUARD, JOIN TODAY!!
I like pimping out my heavy weapons platforms. I put all the goodies on their: sandbags, extra rifles, packs, even some blood spatters. Looks like a real diorama.
veteran sergents sometimes custom guns(auto guns, bullpup style guns, some moddeled as real guns, under barrel grenade launcher, semi automatic snipers, heavy weapon team gear, etc)
heavy weapon teams(computerized trailer for heavy bolter, forgeworld compact style heavy bolter carried like a m249 with the flamer sholder strap, missile launchers carried every way you can think of, etc)
i basically make a lot of persionalized equiptment for certain things for example the sergeants i do this because i never use lasgun close combat weapon combo(i never assault.......unless it's 30 guardsmen vs 2 man ork hq.........lol i only lost 13 before i killed them)
Every single infantry model in my army is converted, many quite heavily. Bionic arms/legs. Gun sights. Strange wires.
Sorry, I lie - the storm troopers are as per normal!
But I guess this is what happens when you try and field a skitarii army. It took ages just to build the first 750 points!
Wouldn't have it any other way, though...

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
All my guardsmen have atleast a grenade or two along with a knife, a waterbottle and some small bags on their belt, but all my sergeants have been given shotguns instead of lasguns. I pimped my veterans an extra bit using the cadian upgrade sprues from Forgeworld and some bits from the catachan jungle fighters box, haven't finished the squad though as I'm taking a break from 40k over the summer and they're kinda low priority since I don't field infantry very often. I just don't got enough points to fit in all my tanks then. :>
Well, I just give the odd different head, from the catachan sprue. What I also do is modify one lasgun and trooper in each squad to look like a sniper, but isn't a sniper. I do this by gettign a normal lasgun, switching the handgrip/trigger handle with a space marine bolt gun / bolt pistol hand grip to make it look more customised. I file of the aquila and cut of the las-pack replacing it with a bolter clip. I then cut of the las-barrel and glue on a longer barrel. (by cutting off a rod of the antenna from the tank accesroy sprue.) I then stick on a space marine targeter, and voila! A sniper for every squad. I also convert my veterans by givingthem wounds, and green stuff bandages, cuts and scrapes and bullet holes in their armour, and give them steel legion heads. i also use heavily modified flamers for their plama guns. To give more character to my leman russes, i put the battle cannon in the hull sponson position to make it look like a world war II german hetzer tank-destroyer. I modify the demolisher likewise to look like a sturmhose tiger tank.... the 340mm barrel. I give the heavy stubbers shields from the heavy weapons sprue as well.
Lets see, purple hats and suits and pimp canes for sarge. Purple suit coats for the rest of them.... oh wait... you mean... oh... yeah I just usually try and give em the vox helmets or the ones with glare shades, those look hard arse.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LOOK AT MY BLOG!
Rep people if they help you!!!
My whole army is super pimpin'. I mean, it is only costing me a ton...stupid Forgeworld...Oh yeah, it's Elysians..I love those models. Shotties FTW! My Sarges are all named 'Cheif' as per this smiley - :C And I may have to dig out some bad apples who enoy this- :drinking: Nah not really, I just love those smileys...
I don't do a whole lot of customizing on regular guardsmen. I just don't have that kind of time. I'd rather play than paint, though I enjoy both. Plus with the sheer amount of models I have (something like 147) it is a serious, serious job to just paint them, much less make each model Golden Demon-worthy.
