Hello I am new to guard
i use to play girl guard and gk.
I'm starting my own sytle guard army, and ill tell you why.
a week or two ago i was fliping though the tv and the movie black hawk down came on.
As i was watching it i was like man these somalians are like guard geting cut up.
then at the end of the movie they were like 7 rangers died and like hundreds of somalians died so i was like yep guard.
So i was wanting to play a tallarn army really really bad for i long time but the tallarn guys on gw were to much money.
So i came up with this idea
So right now i have gonna alot of guard is the past week (catachans)
40 guard i wanna use as penal
6x rocket teams
2x las cannon teams
2 storm troopers squads
i also have a shadowsword which i dont think im going to use.
I need some input on what i should do for a army list im not looking for a tourney list this is a army for fun with friends.
ive started painting my guys they are in tan cloths and are black skined
and i tried to give them all knifes.
I also am looking for imput on how to make the all somalian's
and yes some look like pirates and have wooden legs.
i will put up some pictures tomorrow cause my camra is dead.
obvious troll is obvious...
What's worse, the fact that he wants to make an all-black skinned regiment or the complete lack of black characters in 40k?
Thats a pretty cool idea actually. The army will deffinatly be unique.
If you're going to go with the theme from black Hawk down i'd probably just take swarms and swarms of Infantry with Missile Launchers and grenade Launchers. Leave all the Heavy Tanks on the shelf for now.
As for the Paint scheme, Looks like a good start. How about doing them with Blue/Grey Jeans instead? It think thats what they had in the film anyway. If you're going to be doing hoards of blokes stick to Foundation colours and use washes to darken and shade.
Mordian Blue for the Jeans and something like Deneb Stone and Calthian Brown for the Shirts. Mix Badab Black and Devian Mud washes together and its a good shade for pretty much anything from clothes to metal.
If you could do some decent conversions or find a reasonable replacement model, using flatbed/pickup trucks as Chimera and Hellhound variants would be sweet. They show guys with a heavy weapon mounted in a pick-up a few times in the movie I think, so you could use those as Hellhound variants or as simply Chimera transports. Toss a few of those in with hordes of infantry and enjoy
Though you may not care about this, 40k vehicle models have a very clunky look to them, so normal military models tend to stick out like a sore thumb. If you don't care, I say go for it
If you do care, I'd point you to a conversion thread Lord Borak made: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...onversion.html
The truck is a bit militaristic and you'd probably want something more domestic looking, but it might give you a good place to start and Borak might be kind enough to give help
Where are the platoons the heavy weapon teams are part of?
