So, my regular group has agreed to allow me to ally IG with Daemons for my next army, but I need some help making the guard side of things effective and still fit my fluff.
My fluff is as follows: An elite army of renegade veterans who posses unatural cunning and have had Tzeentch take an interest in them. (I figured that Tzeentch is the most likely god to take on normal humans as more important followers and it is my favorite choas god)
That's mostly what I have so far, but what I picture with it is a grenadier force.
Totally ignore the daemon side of things for now, how do I make an effective list of IG elites? Is it possible at all?
Use Schaffers mob - Lots of BS4 and also lots of special weapons.
You might want to have a few of them upgraded to psykers as well - that would explain how they drew the attention of one of the Ruinous Powers.

Or you can even throw in some more "Chaosy" models and just have them play as Ogryn.
Humans that have really been "blessed" by Big T.
And with a little customizing you could have some sweet RR units that are Centaurish.
Why don't you just call them the Blood Pact like all the books, an elite force of choas infatry under the leader seck i think, better than regular IG and mor creative, if you know what i mean.
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
i agree entirley with using Schaffers "mob" as well as upgrading some of them to psykers. go with Hardened vets as well their fairly "elite", if your looking for a really elite renegades though go with Schaffers "mob" backed up by grenadiers 8Y
Chaos: 1000pts (working on now)
There's so many things you can go with for a Chaos IG army - just as many as with a normal IG army, which allows possibly the most variation of any in the game.
An all grenadier army can be difficult to play, however - sure, they are all slightly better than normal guardsmen, but you lose IG's biggest asset, massed numbers.
Not saying that it cannot be done, however - a way to make it work would be to run the grenadiers as mostly mechanised, give the basic troops plasmaguns to take out big nasties, and chimeras to take out hordes, and droptroop in small storm troopers squads with meltaguns to take out enemy tanks. That or veterans with carapace. I'd also probably take a few sentinels - they will start on the board in escalation games , and you can equip them for anti tank duty quite effectively. Also, they can deepstrike if you take drop troops doctrine.
Deep striking heavy flamer sentinels is a cheap sacrifice that can often work quite well.
If you want more inspiration as to chaos IG, however, you should check out the Forge World site, here's a link: (if you haven't already seen this)
Forge World CHAOS RENEGADES
Hope this helps!
"Pickles, the drummer, doodily doo. (Ding-dong, doodily, doodily, doo.)"
Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
I was looking around on GW's site, and there are some great fantasy models that could help you out with making a Chaosy IG guard.
The Ogres, and lizardmen has some great models that looked like they could be easily "converted" with a few IG bits to be a Tzeentchy IG army.
If I had the time, I would love to bust open a box of Catachans and Skinks and just start mixing parts together. I bet it would come out looking really mutated and cool.
My guide to converting chaos/undead guardsmen
(To be accompanied with pictures as soon as i work out what's going wrong with my computer / uploading pics - after i did 10x pics fom my how to paint a guardsman - see sig - it won't let me do any more)

Traitor guard are extremely cool.
I always suggest to anyone wanting to make traitor guard to read the gaunts ghosts novels, great inspiration to be had from there.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
